Thinking about adding a pop of color to your sofa?  Don’t know where to start when selecting pillows?  To some, pillow arranging can be stressful.  But it doesn’t have to be!

As you stroll down the pillow aisles of the home decor stores, you see all the beautiful colors and styles of pillows that you have to have!  But, putting a great grouping of pillows together on a sofa can sometimes be a different story.  A sofa is like a blank canvas and pillows are the pops of color, design and texture you put on it.  Getting it right can sometimes be difficult!

GuideHere are a few hints to get you started.  Start with a couple of anchor pillow, a larger sized pillow for the outside of the sofa.  Moving towards the center, start to select smaller sized pillows, alternating patterns and fabrics.

Pull out colors from around the room to really tie the look together.  Odd numbers are more appealing, so as you work towards the center of the sofa, end with one fun decorative pillow.

Get creative!  Try using a few patterns.  As long as they are in the same color family, they will work.

TropicalUse pillows to make a statement!  If you purchase pillow covers and down inserts you can change the pillow covers seasonally.  You can store the covers neatly in a drawer and use the inserts over and over again!

To maintain the look of your pillows, give your pillows a good shake and punch in the sides to redistribute the feathers in the insert.  Flat pillows look old and tired.

Cartridge Pleat Drapes

Yeah!  DrapeStyle has it’s very first Patent!  In the drapery business we have always just sort of done things they way they have always been done for a hundred years, but not at DrapeStyle.  When we make a Cartridge Pleat Drape we basically make a cylinder or a cone.  The inside of the cylinder is empty and just about every custom drapery manufacturer in the world will stuff that cylinder with paper or pillow-fill or something else to keep the cartridge pleat, well, shaped like a cartridge.  When you “stuff” a cartridge pleat or a goblet pleat with paper or whatever you run into a couple of problems.

The first problem is that if you crush, pinch or otherwise misshape the pleat they are not going to “bounce back”.  As a result you get pleats that are either misshapen, crooked or just not, well a cartridge pleat.

Problem number two, is that when you fill the pleat with “material” you leave little spaces in there.  Little dark spaces.  And, we know who likes little dark spaces, right?  Yes, little crawly creatures.  They like to move into cartridge pleats and build themselves little nests.  And, once they have a nest they like like to fill that nest with little baby crawly things.  Before you know it you have a little crawly thing condo happening in your drapes Cartridge Pleats.  Not at all what you had planned!

So, introduce the DrapeStyle Solution to the little crawly thing happening in your Cartridge Pleats.  The Pleat Plug.  Yes, this little device may seem innocent enough but it is the answer to colonies of little crawly guys forever.  Plus, with the new Pleat Plug Technology with your Cartridge Pleated Drapes or Goblet Pleated Drapes you now end up with perfectly formed pleats that will last the lifetime of the drape.  And, DrapeStyle gets themselves a Patent for “Drapery Technology”!!
