As the crisp fall days come closer, the urge to cuddle up on the couch with a pillow and a blanket grows; and there is no better way to do so than with the Autumn Leaf Pillow. It has a slight squishiness to it that is perfect for hugging, and when you aren't sleeping, it gives off the best autumn décor vibes! The pillow is made of two panels, which are each adorned with a beautiful leaf vein pattern.
