These decorative pillows are both elegant and sophisticated. The nubby silk fabric is beautiful with a lovely taupe that isn't too dark, and has perhaps just a touch of gold and green in the sheen. The color works perfectly in a neutral color scheme. The white stitching is lovely and not too obtrusive. Overall, these give an upscale look to our two matching slip chairs. These were a bit pricey, but they are worth it. Highly recommended. I'm thrilled with them!
