Sofa pillows

Indoor furnishings are a topic again today and similar to the table, quite a challenge for me!

I think I understand the assignment: express the feelings of "relax", "home" and/or "decoration" with the lighting and composition. I guess you'll be the judge whether I succeeded :-)

Whenever I page/scroll through home decoration catalogs (now all online) I often see beds with masses (6-8 or more) of pillows just for decoration on the bed. I wonder who does that? It's a lot of work to put all those tight pillowcases on specially shaped pillows after washing them. When you go to bed you have to remove them and put them somewhere, certainly not on the floor for hygiene reasons, right? Who has the time to put them all back in their special decorative place in the morning?

Perhaps the genre of home furnishing photography is similar to food photography in that is it all about creating an illusion of a perfectly styled life?

My ex did THAT. And not only with the bed, but also with the chairs, the sofas ... Looked like living in a catalog indeed smile
