Size, materials, aesthetic appeal, and cost are the primary concerns when choosing a large throw pillow. It is a good idea to consider the room in which the pillow will be used as well as the piece of furniture on which the large throw pillow will be placed. The color and design of the pillow should complement the dominant colors of the room; this does not necessarily mean the pillow must match the colors, but a color or design that works well with the dominant color can prevent clashing.

Think carefully about how the large throw pillow will look on a particular piece of furniture. A pillow that is too large may overwhelm the look of the furniture, or it may make sitting on that piece of furniture difficult or uncomfortable. A pillow that is not large enough for a particular piece of furniture may not look appropriate or may not be useful for people sitting on the furniture. The size determination is ultimately a matter of preference, however, and you will need to think about how you intend to use the large throw pillow to determine which size is best for your needs.

The materials used to make the pillow will have a significant effect on how useful and attractive it is. Some materials are designed to be resistant to stains or water damage. If children will be using the pillow, such materials are a good idea. Other materials are used to create a soft, inviting pillow, but these materials may be more delicate or susceptible to damage. Think about how much care you are willing to give the pillow to ensure you choose the right material. Try to choose a large throw pillow that is comfortable and attractive while keeping in mind the durability of the pillow.

The cost of a pillow can vary significantly according to its size and the materials used to make it. Have a budget in mind before you go shopping, especially if you intend to buy more than one pillow. Sometimes pillows come in sets that will generally reduce the cost of purchase in the long run, though the initial purchase price will be higher.

Some pillows also feature removable covers that can be taken off and put in a washing machine for easy cleaning. If the pillow will be used often on a piece of furniture that is regularly used, consider getting a pillow with a removable cover. Make sure the cover is machine-washable before you purchase it.
