Few pieces of furniture let down a living room more than a tired, saggy sofa. It's the item we use the most, but given its hefty price tag, it can be difficult to justify investing in a brand-new one. If your old sofa is cramping your style, there is a way to refresh it with or without reupholstering: throw cushions. Think of throw cushions like you do a slick of red lipstick or statement earrings—they detract attention from the rest of the room (or your outfit) and add a jolt of color and personality. Ahead, we went in search of the most luxe-looking leather pillows that make any sofa look brand-new. From a buttery-soft CB2 pillow to a textural cane-and-leather cushion from Williams Sonoma, these buys belong in your living room. Let the layering begin.
