Bolsters, not just your ordinary pillow

love all the fabrics via tilly's cottage
I have a new obsession with bolsters or what some others refer to as lumbar pillows.  They are like the la-z-boys of pillows, but much more attractive to look at! They have come a long way in the design world and some very creative people have taken an ordinary pillow and turned them into the focal point of a room, whether placed on a bed or a sofa.   Here are some of the beautifully made bolsters that I came across, same ideas but they all look so different and so inpiring at the same time!

I warned you, they are really amazing.  It makes me wish I could sew - that is one thing that I remember my mother trying to teach me growing up but I never had the patience for it. I should have sat still a little longer and listened. If I had, my whole house would be filled with bolsters! Maybe I'll ask her to give me another lesson.
