These are not large pillows. They ARE the perfect size to put behind one's lower back to make it more comfortable when sitting in a chair or on a sofa. Pillows are beautiful and can be used anywhere in house. I ordered both gold and red for visual interest and color play. Very pleased with purchase.
Ordered these pillows to go with my tan couch (tan, camel, golden brown), and they go very well. The material is heavy, like a brocade. The flowers are embroidered and are the color of my couch. The color of the background is what I call brick red. Definitely more toward the rust end rather than maroon. The colors on the site are true. The pillows are supposed to be 18", but seem a little smaller than my current 18" pillows. Perhaps because these pillows are stuffed more than my current ones. They are stuffed full, but not overly so.
