This is the PERFECT pillow for my needs. The pillow is large and firm, not slft or flimsy. I love the embroidered scrolled design. I don't recall if the design is on both sides, but I think so. I didn't expect the darkest embroiidered color to be brown, but from a distance, the color works great! It provides excellent back support. I have had people ask where I found such a nice pillow. The pillow has had a lot of use and is just a beautiful as ever! I don't remember what I paid for thi pillow, but whatever it was, it was definitelly worth it!
