Sofa game changer.
"Pillows should be used with abundance--they're fun and easy to decorate with," says Kelly Bedford Willrich (pictured, on right). The pint-size mercantile she runs with business partner Melanie Mount (on left) puts that principle into practice. Clocking in at a mere 1 50 square feet, The Cushion Shop by Well Made Home packs every inch of its Marin Country Mart location with custom throw pillows in remarkable fabrics, including a washed indigo by St. Frank and a tie-dye by Raoul Textiles. The shop is known for adding a boho spin to trad interiors. "Right now, we're in love with overdyed mud cloth pillows, particularly in pinks and blues. We mix them with faded batik in a range of colors," says Mount. Most of the fabric is typically available only to the trade, and the pillows are finished off with welts, cords, flanges, and trim not often seen in retail. Can't get enough of custom? Head upstairs to Willrich and Mount's studio, Well Made Home, to create any upholstered furniture piece you can dream up. thewellmadehome.com.

Proper cushion placement for a sofa: "Layer the back corners with a pair of 22- to 24-inch pillows, depending on the size of the sofa. Then use smaller sizes and lumbars to create asymmetry; perfection is not the goal."
