Good Quotes: Throw Pillows

Pin it button big

"Oh, and by the way, I threw away all your little throw pillows. Yea. Cuz throw pillows suck. They serve no purpose. They're purely decorative."

– Ben Stiller as Reuben Feffer in Along Came Polly

Yeah, I know some people are huge fans of throw pillows in multitude, but even a decor-friendly gent like myself has to agree with Reuben on this one. One or two throw pillows are attractive and aid in comfort. But when you start inching into numbers that require stacking and layering them upon the bed or couch, it becomes a serious case of overindulgence that provides neither comfort or practical use (especially since you have to put them away somewhere while you sleep or sit on a couch). At least that's how I personally feel when surrounded by an army of pillows.

Noting a past survey, I think I'm in the minority though...I'm surprised to see people with upwards of 9 pillows on their bed. I guess I'm just a pillow monogamist.
