10 Gorgeous Throw Pillows Under $30 That Will Transform Your Living Room


No one can deny the undeniable appeal of a pop of color in an otherwise neutral space. That’s why a beautiful throw pillow is invaluable in the home decor world. There will always be a need for this easy add-on (hence, the word “throw”).

If you gravitate toward a more toned-down aesthetic, but would like to add a little something — a print, a vibrant hue, some texture, etc. — a little pillowy accent piece is ideal (and perfect for commitment-phobes). This rings particularly true if you stick to a more affordable option. While stunning throw pillows can certainly cost a pretty penny, budget-friendly options are indeed a thing, and easier to spot than you think.

Thanks to budget retailers like Target, Wayfair, Overstock, and, of course, Amazon, there’s a plethora of ways to refresh your living room or bedroom in an instant, no matter your design aesthetic. Oh, and all shapes are on the table (er, sofa), as well. Yes, if you’re inclined to minimalist, eclectic, mid-century modern, or vintage vibes, there’s an affordable pillow to be found for you.

So instead of reaching for a can of paint, drapes, or wallpaper, jump on a more convenient track and invest in a few pillows that will light up your room just as efficiently. To prove it, ahead, you’ll find 10 worthy options that won’t cost you more than $30. You’re definitely going to want to throw these around.
