Why Use Pillow Shams?
Pillow shams, sometimes referred to as bed shams, offer a washable alternative to standard decorative pillows. Because they can be removed from the pillows contained inside, they are very easily cared for, and take up far less room when removed for storage.
Are Pillow Shams Meant to Be Slept On?
Traditionally, US based consumers utilize shams for purely decorative purposes. That said, many of our pillow shams are made from our sheeting allowing you to use them as an alternative to a pillow case. Whether you’re using your shams for a decorative touch when the bed is made up or your using them sleep on, the choice is yours.
What Size Pillow Shams Are Available?
With a few exceptions, most of our shams are available in the following sizes:
Standard Shams: 20" x 26". Designed to fit over a standard bed pillow, these should make up the middle row of stacked pillows on a twin, double, or queen sized bed.
King Shams: 20" x 36". Slightly longer than a standard sham, king shams fit king size pillows, and should be stacked in the middle row on a king size bed.
Euro Shams: 26" x 26". Our largest shams, square euro shams are perfect for the back row of pillows, and add height to your pillow arrangement.
