Hooked pillows, like rugs, are made from strands of woolen yarn hooked through a canvas backing to create a specific design or motif. Often considered less formal than needlework pillows, hooked cushions may showcase holiday or other themes, and many use humor and whimsy as well. Using hooked pillows as accessories in home decorating is always a smart idea -- and an economical one too -- due to their affordability and familiar themes.
Throw cushions in the Aubusson style are named after an area in France that has been famous since the Renaissance period for its weavers and the woolen products they produced. Pillows made in the same tradition of highly intricate detailing using top quality yarns are still called Aubusson pillows today. Aubusson pillows are generally used in more formal settings due to their floral, regal, and antique French historical designs. Despite being entirely handmade, decorative pillows are also remarkably durable. In fact, there are countless examples of pillows from the 18th and 19th centuries -- Aubusson, needlepoint, embroidered, and more -- still being used today. Proper storage and gentle spot-cleaning techniques will keep these home accessories looking new for years to come.
