One tip to make your room look like it was professionally done is to use only feather pillows that can be karate chopped. So I splurged on two of the big red pillows and it was worth it. Fortunately a previous reviewer mentioned that the background color is taupe and that was perfect for me, as this pillow pulls my new home office together. The taupe matches the Kendrick Camel Brown Chenille Track Arm Loveseat i purchased and the red matches the Zen Garden Tango Red Embroidered Faux Silk Curtain Panels. Also, the back of the pillow is like a red cotton velveteen. Love these pillows! Love Overstock!
