The 10 Best Summer Throw Pillows

Does your home decor need a refresh for summer? One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to make your home feel beautiful and appropriate for the season is to swap out your winter throw pillows for summer versions. Whether your prefer bright, beachy, subtle or solid, these are 10 of our favorite summer throw pillows for every style.

Ira Stripes Throw Pillow

Blame it on the nautical look or the Stars & Stripes craze that surrounds the Fourth of July, but for whatever reason, stripes are synonymous with summer. If you prefer a subtler patterns, we love the Ira Stripes pillow in a low-contrast palette of aqua and cream.

Acantha Stripes Blue Throw Pillow

Gravitate toward a bigger, bolder stripe? Try the nautical-inspired Acantha throw pillow in a color like navy or red.

Iakovos Geometric Throw Pillow

Take a cue from the view out the window and add a verdant touch to your decor with a green throw pillow like our contemporary Iakovos Geometric print pillow.

Dandelion Throw Pillow

Garden-inspired motifs are a beautiful option, too. For a more contemporary, not-so-feminine take on florals, our pick is the Dandelion pillow in white & coral.

Draven Nautical Throw Pillow

A small-scale coral print gives our Draven throw pillow an unmistakably coastal style, but its small scale means it will blend in with the rest of your decor, even if it doesn’t have a seaside theme.

Enye Coastal Pillow

Then again, if your decor does skew coastal or nautical, if you live by the beach, or you simply want to embrace seasonal decorating to the fullest, we love the oversized anchor motif on the Enye Coastal pillow.

Harsha Graphic Pillow

The dotted Harsha throw pillow brings the colors of the summer sun and sky into your home in a print that’d complement country-style decor.

Quinta Floral Pillow

An instant way to make your space feel summery: Add a floral print like our Quinta Floral Pillow. We love this pillow paired with one in a large-scale buffalo check for a fresh take on traditional decor.

Adalya Solid Linen Throw Pillow

There’s no need to go literal with your summer decor, either. If you simply want to swap out heavier winter fabrics like velvet, wool, and faux fur for something that feels more seasonally appropriate, try a basic linen pillow in a solid hue, like our Adalya Solid Linen throw pillow

Mabel Cotton Throw Pillow

Lightweight cotton fabric in white or another pale neutral, like our Mabel Solid pillow in white, works to create a breezy summetime vibe, too. 

The Bottom Line: 

We have hundreds of pillows that will work for the summer season. The key to choosing one that feels appropriate is to look for lightweight fabrics like cotton and linen, and colors that are light or bright.
