White Throw + Decorative Pillows
White is technically the absence of any color. Since ancient times, this shade has been symbolic of purity and cleanliness. Most brides wear a beautiful white dress on their special day, and in some Asian cultures, people wear white when mourning. Unpigmented and natural shades of white are quite popular in many different types of homes because they bring a feeling of cleanliness and neutrality into the space. White throw pillows make a great accent to dark furniture or other light items.
Shades of White
While white is often considered the absence of color, some white throw pillows are a variation on the color theme. There is eggshell white, off-white, ivory, vanilla and alabaster. These shades have other pigments in them to give a light hue.
Some accent pillows have a white background with a pattern of other colors on it, while others are plain white.
White Pillow Materials and Sizes
White throw pillows may be made from cotton, polyester, wool or any combination of popular throw pillow materials. They are usually made in the typical square shape and size of classic throw pillows but may be available in other options.
