This luxurious throw pillow will add another dimension to your grey couch. The extra squishy-ness has been created with hand-crocheted yarn, looped hundreds of times. This unique design gives it a sumptuous look and feel.
This is available in various colors and would suit most decors and sofa styles, but grey works particularly well on a grey couch for a monochrome look. This is tricky to clean though – so probably not ideal for homes with small children and sticky hands!
Add Some Fun to a Plain Grey Sofa With Tassels
This lumbar support throw pillow adds something fun to this rather plain sofa. Even without any other pillows it looks great. The textured cotton blend is classy – but its feature is the large tassels lining each edge.
