The Best Trimmings for Decorating

What a difference a little trim makes. Whether you choose pom-poms or fringe, embellishing a simple store-bought pillow is an easy, inexpensive way to have a big decorative impact. Our editors' go-to trim sources stock hundreds of styles -- pleated ribbon, rickrack, frog closures, leather cord, graphic jacquard, braided gimp, looped appliques, and all manner of tassels -- in dozens of dazzling colors.
