GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Clean, classic and preppy.....these are all the feel that a simple stripe can add to living room. If you're looking for a way to spice up your sofa, think about pillows with a stripe. Stripes are practical and go with everything.
Art Van Style Expert, Jon Jordan, recommends using stripes to give your sofa a sophisticated feel. Or, mix the striped pillow with a pattern for a more eclectic vibe.
Something that many people don't realize is that the placement of the pillow can give your sofa different dimensions. For example, when you place the pillow so the stripes run horizontally the furniture piece looks much longer.
