What is the ideal pillow for you vs your bed? or BOTH? Standard, Queen, King or Euro-sized Down or Down Alternative pillows make every difference to the aesthetic and function of your bed.
Here is the simple Rule: Queen Size
Bed 2 Euro Pillow 26 x 26" at the back
2 Queen Size 21 x 30" Pillows in front of your Euro Pillow
2 Standard Size 21 x 28" Pillow in front of your Queen Size Pillow
The Purpose is to build Layers. Is this functional? Not really. You can swap the standard size (21 x 28") for the Queen which measures about 21 x 30" and still have it look similar if not the same.
How about the King Bed and King Pillows?
3 to 4 Euro Pillows at the back (depending on the pattern you have selected)
2 King Pillow 21 x 37" (for your pillowcases)
2 Queen Pillows at the front in front of your King Pillows for decoration (similar to the queen size bed)
Do you need 2 Queen pillows?
Nope! Swap them and have 4 King size pillows and 3 to 4 euro pillows and your set.
Again you are building layers.
How about no EURO Pillow?
Yep! that is a more modern design and you can also use 2 King Pillows on a Queen bed at the back to build layers.
