"Karate Chop" to your pillows?

Pin it button
AT:LA reader Lisa made a comment on the post we did Monday, asking about the "karate chop" technique used on the pillows in the house tour of Chris and Eric Fenmore from the OC Register. It's a technique that many designers apply when completing a room. We've asked this before, but are curious if the consensus has changed. What do the rest of you think about this? Do you "karate-chop" your pillows?...(more after survey...)
From what we've been able to gather, the "karate-chop" action to a pillow originated from needing to "poof" or fluff up a down pillow. Read more here. Does anyone know any thing else about this? Please share in the comments! Image from MarJennings.com
