Ever notice how some of the best things in life get even better with the addition of something simple? For instance, how the remote control transformed the TV, how coffee improved mornings or what parachutes did for airplanes? Outdoor furniture by itself is a wonderful thing as it brings indoor comforts to a beautiful outdoor setting. But by adding something simple like outdoor throw pillows you can personalize your patio furniture and increase its comfort.

Adding Some Color To The World

While special ordering custom cushions for your patio furniture is an option, most retailers stock their furniture in neutral solid colors. This way they appeal to the masses and you don’t have to worry about the color of your cushions trending out of style. Outdoor throw pillows are a terrific way to interject some color and some of your personality onto your furniture. Try matching the pillows with a feature in your outdoor area such as the grass, your umbrella, a row of rose bushes or an exterior wall. Some like to use striped multi-colored pillows that match both the color of your furniture’s cushions and highlight something in your backyard. The use of seasonal colors is very popular as well. By getting different colored pillows every other season you can dramatically change the look of your outdoor furniture.

Adding Even More Comfort

Aside from the aesthetics that pillows provide, what you’re truly accomplishing is making your backyard a much more comfortable place. Deep seating furniture is just that, outdoor furniture that is amazing to sit on. Keep in mind that even the world’s best bed needs a pillow to make sleep possible. By adding throw pillows to your outdoor sofa you make taking a nap a much more comfortable experience. Lumbar pillows are beloved not only for their comfort but also for the support they supply to the lower back.
