|Pillows on my couch|

I have absolutely no qualms about using a combination of the two. Currently, I have chevron pillows (from Target, $19.99) and interlocking trellis pillows (covers from Caitlin Wilson Textiles, $70) side by side on the couches in my living room. I like mixing different styles so that the room doesn't look so "matchy-matchy".

However, I found a great alternative at Crate & Barrel. (Here's the link: http://www.crateandbarrel.com/search.aspx?query=pillow%20inserts ) These feather inserts are available in a wide array of sizes, and they are allergen-free. I ordered the 18x18 and the 20x20 sizes, and I was impressed by the quality. I really wasn't expecting much when I placed the order, because I didn't think that they would be exactly what I was looking for, mostly because they were so cheap. But they completely surpassed my expectations, and they are exactly the same as the $80 feather version!
