Splurge Vs. Save: French Aubusson Style Pillows

Please bear with all of the pillow posts (and admit it, you love them, too!).  I’m currently scouring the design market for a collection of throw pillows to complete a cozy family room with a deep sectional.   The classic French Aubusson style is truly beautiful.  It says “home”, “comfort”, “history”, and most commonly “floral”.   This Fresh Cut find below is the splurge. At $360, from Layla Grace, this dusty blue pillow adds grace and softness to any neutral setting.

If you can splurge, go for it!  Find a neutral, creamy sofa, bed, or chair and complete the look.  If you feel faint at the sight of the price, see below for our similar, but more affordable options.   Ebay has a constant collection of Aubusson pillows. Many are in the $400-$500 range, however, they also have  prices closer to $100-125.
