Most Popular Throw Cushions in Home Decor

What theme or design do you think sells the most toss pillows at NeedlepointPillows.com?

Perhaps the lovely hand made embroidered floral patterns, evoking fresh springtime blossoms and never-ending bouquets? Or maybe your vote would be for needlepoint pictures capturing sportsman moments and hunting scenes, completing the decor in your home study or den or vacation lodge. Maybe your favorite is the our premiere collection of high end Aubusson pillows, for the obvious craftsmanship and quality of material and design.

Although each type of pillow mentioned certainly does well, the far-and-away best-selling cushions are needlepoint and hooked dog pillows. The breed is nearly irrelevant -- pugs do the same booming business as Labs (chocolate, yellow or black) and terriers sell like hot cakes whether they're dressed or au naturel. With almost half of American households claiming to have at least one dog as part of their family (and that comes to something like 73 MILLION dogs!), it's not surprising that dog throw pillows are as popular as they are.

Only one thing confuses me a little. With cats coming in as the second most popular pet in the U.S., and the majority of those cat owners having multiple cats as pets, why aren't accent pillows with images of cats on them flying off the shelves too? Is it possible lack of space due to so many lounging felines?


Ah, the mysteries of the home decorating business!
