I've been searching for throw pillows for our linen couch for awhile now. I probably won't actually buy anything until we've repainted the house, but I'm always searching (hey, if I find THE ONE, why wouldn't I buy it??). Homesense hasn't been my friend lately with pillows though (but I'll continue to search my favorite homestore anyways), so I've turned to online hunting. I've ordered a number of things online lately (wall stencil, flooring, curtains, birthday & Christmas presents, books, etc etc), so to turn to online pillow shopping wouldn't be out of the norm by any means. However, I'm a little surprised (and disappointed!) at how EXPENSIVE pillows can be!! Maybe I'm just used to the $15-25 pillows from Homesense, but still.... These pillows are gorgeous, but since I won't even pay that much for jeans (these pillows range from $85-175 -- and some are only pillow COVERS, and don't include the actual pillow!), I can't see me spending that much on a pillow (especially since I need MINIMUM 2). What do you think? Any other suggestions for places to find decently priced pillows? Since we're going to go with a little bit more of a neutral wall color (Portobello by Sico Paints), and the couch is linen color, the pillows is where I'd like to bring in some COLOR for my husband.
