Decorating & Furniture/Fireplace throw pillows


My question is very basic. Do people sometimes decorate with big throw pillows on or around the fireplace hearth? And if so, how is it done to look 'right'? I can't find any pictures online of how it would look.

Normally you don't find pillows around fireplaces because it can catch on fire too easily. I would recommend adding large ones to the side of the fireplace. If you can send an image I can tell you where to locate them.
