Total home makeovers don't fall high on our priority lists, especially where finances are concerned. When furniture overhauls are out of budget and the more affordable knick-knacks only serve as dust-collectors in already cramped quarters, all redesign inspiration feels sapped. The ideal decor solution is an item that meets the trifecta of affordability, function, and style — a.k.a. the throw pillow.
Throw pillows are to homes as bags are to fashion; both goods meld stylish accentuation with practical functionality within a range of reasonable price points — only instead of accessorizing outfits and holding keys to cards, throw pillows accessorize spaces and support heads to toes. Ahead we've rounded up 15 of these essential decor buys in a variety of statement-making styles, from fringed lumbars to knotted-ball pillows and more. Scroll on to effortlessly cross a home makeover off your to-do list with an under $30 zebra-print that screams, "I am Margot Tenenbaum," or a pleated-velvet number that radiates some royal realness.
