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!
