Good Questions: How to Secure These Pillows?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

I have a leather sofa and it has 6 leather cushions. The cushions never seem to sit against the back of the sofa - they always slide down and end up laying on the seating area.

Is there any kind of material I can use to tape them to the back without damaging the leather? In the pic it looks fine, but as soon as there is any movement on the sofa, the pillows slide.

Thanks,
Vik

Dear Vik,

A friend had the same problem with vinyl, so she attached velcro strips to the back of the pillows and the sofa. For leather, though, we need some firsthand suggestions of what works and won't cause any damage. Our first thought is actually to replace the many small pillows with a few larger ones that won't be as likely to move all over the place.

Anyone have tips for Vik?
