Euro Pillows

Euro Pillows

Euro pillows, also known as euro sham pillows or sham stuffers, are decorative square pillows measuring 26 by 26 inches. They are typically placed behind bed pillows and paired with decorative covers known as euro shams, which is why they are often called sham stuffers. 

Other than their shape, euro pillows are similar to bed pillows used for sleeping. They can also be used on other furniture, like sofas or chairs, to support the head and back while reading, lounging, or watching TV.

Euro pillows can be made from either down or down alternatives. Down pillows are typically filled with goose or duck down. Down alternative pillows are made from specialized polyester fill. Most pillows are surrounded by soft cotton fabric, but euro pillows are most commonly used with ornamental euro shams.

Because pillow loft and density affect the alignment of your body while you sleep, different types of pillows are recommended for each sleep position. For maximum comfort, we recommend soft pillows for stomach sleepers, medium pillows for back sleepers, and firm pillows for side sleepers.

Our pillows are available in square euro size and all other sizes:

Choose the right pillow density for your sleep position

A pillow’s density and loft, or height, are determined by the type and amount of fill. While down, feather, and down alternative pillows each have distinct characteristics that affect the shape and feel of the pillow, they can all be made in a variety of densities.
