I love pillows with a fun texture, especially pom poms. Great in a neutral space where you aren't trying to infuse color but texture goes a long way.
And I particularly like the more "adult" look of the Parker Pom Pom Raffia Pillow from Ballard as poms can get a little too whimsical sometimes:
There is also a navy option whose photograph looks much like the black one. Don't you think the gray one would be right at home with beiges and winter whites? And that black one would do wonderful things paired with buffalo check.
Have you seen similar pom pillows around? I don't see them often and would love to check out more...
