We have been looking for a special pillow for the sofa for a long time. We ordered the swatches and ended up with the aqua, it is actually a shade of blue that goes perfectly with the sofa. The "line" down the middle looks like a reflection of sunlight and is very dramatic. Now I am motivated to add one more to complement it. Shipped right on time and it was here in a few days. Really liked getting the swatches first as I would have selected a "safe" color and glad we have the aqua.
