Large floor pillows like these are ideal when you need an informal seating arrangement for your room. Sit on them, use them as a backrest or lay down on them when you need a quick nap.

A fun spot on the terrace

There's nothing that holds you back from using pillows in the outdoors! When decorating the terrace or porch in your home, add pillows to this huge lounge area like this one for a relaxed and fun place to hangout. Goes without saying that these must be waterproof and sturdier pillows than the ones used indoors.
