They are sure to bring beauty to your home. 

 Throw Pillows to Dress Up Your Couch

Your living room is the main area where your family and guests will be spending time- conversing, enjoying snacks or drinks on Raya. So, it is important to make sure that your living room atmosphere is warm, comforting, and inviting.

At the same time, for those who suffer from a sensitive back, they can serve as back support to help them feel comfortable being at your living space.
