And no accent is more renewing for your sofa or bed than the humble throw pillow. Sure, there are very pricey options on the market that are hand-embroidered or made of Belgian linens and luxury silks, but if you're after a wallet-friendly peppering of flair that you can rotate seasonally (or leave up all year round!), try these 32 options—organized by style—on for size.
