Euro shams, an essential element of bedding ensembles, effortlessly blend aesthetics with functionality to elevate the look and feel of any bedroom. These oversized square pillow covers, typically measuring 26 x 26 inches, serve as decorative and supportive accents, adding both style and comfort to your sleeping space.
Euro Shams vs. Shams
Euro shams are distinct from regular pillow shams due to their larger size and versatile nature. While standard pillow shams are designed for sleeping pillows, Euro shams are commonly used as decorative cushions placed against the headboard or wall. They are designed to cover an oversized square pillow, known as Euro Pillows. Recently launched, our Down Alternative Euro Pillows are luxuriously plush with a medium-firmness for the perfect balance. Their generous dimensions make them an ideal backdrop for smaller decorative pillows or a supportive prop for sitting up in bed while reading or watching television.
What Are Euro Shams Made Of?
Crafted from various high-quality fabrics such as cotton, linen, silk, or blends, Euro shams come in an array of textures, patterns, and colors to suit different decor styles. From solid hues to intricate patterns like florals, geometrics, or abstract designs, these shams allow you to express your personal taste while harmonizing with the overall bedroom aesthetic.
High-quality fabrics like Egyptian cotton will create a more durable, sophisticated sham. These shams in particular are widely used for decorative purposes so you want to make sure you are using shams that are made with quality materials and provide that luxurious look to complete the bed. Our Egyptian Cotton Euro Shams are on their way, so be sure to sign up to be notified as soon as they arrive!
How to Style & Care For Euro Shams
Adding Euro shams to your bedding ensemble involves a layering technique that creates depth and visual interest. Typically, they are placed in the back row of pillows on a bed, behind the standard sleeping pillows. This layering effect, combined with the variety of patterns and textures, adds dimension to the bed and makes it look inviting and well-coordinated.
Maintenance of Euro shams is relatively simple, as they are designed for decorative purposes rather than frequent use. Regular fluffing and occasional spot cleaning are usually sufficient to keep them looking pristine. Always refer to the care instructions provided by the manufacturer to ensure the longevity of your Euro shams.
