Trend Alert: Shaggy Cushions to Have and to Hold

April 7, 2022

Is it any wonder that we’re in the midst of a pillow renaissance? Given the ongoing pandemic and the state of the world, we could all use a bit of cushioning.

We recently noted The Return of the Ruffle and Velvet Pillows in Daring Geometric Designs. Now, we’re seeing shades-0f-the-sixties options that are undeniably shagadelic.
