Decorate Your Nursery with Modern Throw Pillows

Getting a nursery ready can be a lot of fun, especially when you have all of your baby bedding essentials and are looking for those finishing touches to make the space feel extra special. A throw pillow is a great decorative addition to a nursery chair or even to the crib during the day while your baby is out. Explore the selection of modern throw pillows, pillow covers and shams at Pottery Barn Kids for just the right plush piece to complete your nursery.

Choose from a Range of Throw Pillow Designs

  • Bold, geometric designs that make a strong style statement
  • Chunky knit pillows that have a warm and cozy feel
  • Abstract animal prints and motifs for a fun and whimsical touch
  • Chic, minimalist patterns for a contemporary look
  • Hand-stitched embroidered details that have an artisanal appeal
  • Geometric patterns and lattices for extra visual interest
  • Jacquard weaves that bring an extra touch of texture to the space

Consider the Benefits of Different Materials

The material that a pillow or pillow cover is crafted of can make a difference in how it looks, feels and functions. Our modern throw pillows are available in a range of materials to suit your preferences.

  • Cotton: Pillows crafted of a 100% cotton weave have a smooth and soft finish. The weave is also very breathable, keeping the pillow cooler.
  • Wool: Like cotton, wool is a soft and breathable material. A 100% pure wool pillow is also better able to resist soiling and stains.
  • Rayon/cotton blend: A highly breathable and durable blend with a soft finish, a rayon and cotton weave won't pile or build up static.
  • Rayon/polyester blend: For a durable, easy-care pillow that will retain its shape and resist wrinkles through many years of use, choose a rayon and polyester blend.

Additional Design and Decorative Features

When considering different throw pillows for your nursery from our selection, you'll have a few different design and decorative features to choose from, including:

  • Pillow covers with an envelope closure for a clean and tailored look or with a zipper closure that makes the cover quick and easy to change.
  • Shams that reverse to the same pattern or a solid color that allows you to change up your decor on a dime.
  • Pillows featuring fibers that have been individually yarn-dyed before weaving for enhanced colorfastness.

Whatever features you select, modern throw pillows offer an easy way to add extra style to a nursery and create a comfortable space to make memories with your new baby. If you've chosen a sham or a pillow cover, make sure you also find the right plush pillow insert in your choice of down or down alternative fill. At Pottery Barn Kids, we carry everything you need to complete your nursery.
