The only thing I can suggest ducks43 is don't polish the couch too much


and don't use a slippery, silky fabric. Here are pics of mine. The pleating on the velvety one and the coarse weave of the linen fabric of the other help to stop slippage. Good luck.

It does shock me how few people know how to dress their beds. A couple of uneven lumps under a throw on bedspread is not appealing, inviting or the way to sell your house. Neither are old worn or stained cushions or bedspeads or doona covers. I'd say photo one is pretty awful. Put your sleeping pillows in the cupboard people. Visitors or prospective home buyers do not want to see your mis shapen sleeping pillows no matter how comfy you find them. I'd say you have too many throw pillows on your bed if it takes up half your bed.

I currently have four pillows on my bed but have mucked around with about 7-9 pillows in the past!
