Got 2 in silver for gray scheme in bedroom. Not sure if I want to add color yet but definitely could w these - the design gives good contrast but not over the top. Exactly as pictured and very happy w my purchase. It's amazing what good pillows can add to a room :)
wanted something neutral in color, but that had a design that would play nicely with other more statement pieces, and actually function as support pillows. the actual pillows are stiff, but the pillow covers (even these pillows you have to 'assemble') are just ok. the metallic houndstooth is distracting and gold in color against the khaki colored option-- was hoping for a more tonal, metallic khaki. so it looks 'off.' somehow it seemed like a good idea at the time. the best part was the price for two pillows-- well worth the style-gamble. Seem quite sturdy and durable-- well worth a try.
A little bit too much bling for me but I'm getting used to it. I would not describe the fabric a "velvety." No velvet here and the metallic portion of the pillow is a little scratchy. In spite of this it is a different and interesting pillow. Great for an accent piece
