I love love love to get emails and comments from my readers. You are the most interactive, inquisitive and amazing community of readers! SERIOUSLY! I mean that! Many of my readers ask the same questions and when that happens I know it’s time to write a blog post about it. I’ve had so many StoneGable readers asking me… “what do you do with all your pillows when company comes”. This is a brilliant question. Oh, you know I am a pillow addict! For years, I really did not know what to do with them. They either got crushed by backs and bottoms and arms or tossed on the floor and trampled. Neither was a good solution for my pillows or my guests. But several years ago that changed. And now I’m sharing the most perfect solution for the battle between pillows and company!
I love a sofa piled with pillows! But I also like a sofa full of company. What’s a girl to do?
To keep pillows from ending up here…
I found this easy solution…
A big basket that will hold lots of pillows! When company comes the basket ends up looking like this…
I leave the pillows on my furniture and just mention to my guest that I’ll take the pillows if they don’t want to rest on them. Some` people like the pillow and other’s don’t. I leave that up to them. All unwanted pillows go in this big basket.
And they look pretty too!
I have pillow baskets in my living room, family room and all of my bedrooms. The baskets can add style and texture as well as function to a room. I like a big woven basket or even an old wooden chest. How about using a wire basket, wooden crate on wheels, a covered basket one lined with a great fabric. The ideas are endless… and fabulous… and functional!
So if you have a space for sitting that is covered with lots of pillows…
stow pillows in a basket when company comes!
Hey, friends Kathy asked in the comments about the inside of the basket. Just make sure there is nothing inside the basket that could snag or damage precious pillows. Thanks for bringing that up Kathy. Fabulous StoneGable friends!!!!!
