Going Long: Beautiful Bolsters and Lumbar Pillows

Going Long: Beautiful Bolsters and Lumbar Pillows

I love the streamlined look of long or oversized bolster pillows and lumbar pillows both on the bed and on the sofa. More streamlined and tailored than a gaggle of smaller throw pillows, a single long rectangular pillow also means much less to clean up when the pillow(s) inevitably end up on the floor! Buy your favorite fabric and make your own pillow cover (as done in Image 3) or buy one of the pillows profiled below, which range from super budget to super pricey.
