Shop with confidence knowing that any one (or more!) of these recommended products “Goes Well With” with whatever product you’re interested in.

4. Arrange your pillows

Layering different sizes, patterns, and textures can add warmth, depth and richness to your space.

20x20, 22x22 are our most popular and versatile sizes for sofas and sectionals. Layer in a 14x20 or a 12x24 lumbar for some extra dimension.

Check out our Curated Pillow Pairings for some go-to sofa and sectional pillow layouts.

14x20 or 12x24 lumbar pillows are also an excellent choice for occasional chairs.

Add a 15x32 XL lumbars or 16x42 bolster pillow to your bedroom pillowscape to create a perfectly styled bed.

Our pillow covers are designed, cut, sewn and finished by our skilled in-house team to ensure high quality products with longevity.

All pillow covers have a zipper enclosure allowing for easy switching your pillow covers from season to season.

We are known for our incredible inserts! Our “faux down” microfiber pillow insert is luxuriously soft, full of body, hypo-allergenic, holds a karate chop, never gets matted or flat and always fluffs up again like a traditional feather insert.

If you would prefer a traditional down insert, choose the "Cover Only" option and add a feather insert to your cart separately.

Would you like to touch and feel the fabric before you make a purchase? Select our Buy a Swatch option and shop with confidence.

5. Add to your cart and enjoy!

Our products are in stock and ready to ship. Orders are fulfilled by our in-house team in 2-4 days.

We want you to be happy with your purchase! Returns are made easy with our provided shipping label.

You may wonder:

Do my pillows need to match on both sides of the sofa?

Answer

How many pillows do I need?

Answer

Do I need to size up when ordering an insert?

Our inserts are perfectly plump so you don't need to order a size up. If your pillow cover measures 20" edge to edge, order our 20" insert.

Happy Customers
Beautiful fabrics, quality products, and excellent customer service! I used the free online design help and got a response the next day. They asked me to answer a few short questions about what I was looking for and to send some photos of the space. The following day, I received an email containing a mood board with two options. I wanted to see the fabrics in person, so I drove to the store and looked around. After exploring all the beautiful pillows, I went with the design provided in Option #2 of the Mood Board. I couldn't be happier! The pillows look beautiful in my space. I would highly recommend Tonic Living to anyone looking for beautiful pillows and fabrics to complete their space.

My experience with tonic living has been nothing but exceptional. The staff response time has been quick and their fabric knowledge is insane. A big thanks to Jen for going above and beyond to help me find a place to get my bedroom cushion made and for helping me understand the fabrics that I chose. Thanks for a great experience and I will definitely be shopping here again!

I LOVE these pillows - they are so luxurious and high quality. I have purchased and received orders from TL on two occasions. The delivery was seamless and I appreciate that it's free within the GTA. The customer service is also fantastic. I just placed another order and am expecting will be just as satisfied.

Tonic is one of my favourite stores in this country - for quality, selection and inspiration.. and their patient customer service is beyond beatable. All of my drapery & pillows have been sourced from this store - and if you can't find it here, it is not worth looking for. The quality of fabric is wonderful - I have to behave EVERY time - there is a lot to tempt you !! Plus if you can't get in, they are fabulous to ship with.

I’ve purchased from TL on two occasions for my living room and will be shopping for my bedroom next! Their fabrics and patterns have truly elevated my space and everyone that’s helped me has been exceptionally kind. Shoutout to Jen! Lastly, bonus points for supporting a small business if that is something that’s important to you.
