Contemporary decorative pillows make your living space look more comfortable. They also provide a decorative touch. Choose pillows that match your color scheme and the materials of your furniture. While you can buy pillows, you will be more likely to get just the look you want if you make pillows yourself. A pillow with a fringed edge adds a sophisticated touch to a room. Make your life easier by using two dishcloths or cloth napkins for the pillow, or cut two squares of your favorite fabric.
Before sewing the fabric squares together, sew the stripe along the edge of all four sides of a single piece of fabric. You will have to fold the fringe so that it is against the right side of the fabric before sewing the contemporary decorative pillows or else the fringe will end up inside the pillow. Use polyester wadding on the inside of the pillow; it is not a pillow shape.

A bolster pillow is a cylindrical pillow. It may not be as practical as square pillows, but it looks pretty to sit in the middle of a sofa. Since you need to cut two circles of fabric for the ends of the pillow, it is a bit harder to make than square or rectangular contemporary decorative pillows. You can dress the pillow reinforce by adding fringes to either end or by using a mixture of fabrics.
