Beautiful Shams Dress Up the Bed
Finish the look with our just-right shams, sized for standard, king, and euro pillows. Whatever your look, find the fine pillow covers that coordinate: pair matelassé or quilted shams with matching bedding for a tailored look, browse linen shams for an air of relaxed elegance, or choose breathable, natural cotton in your favorite finish and feel—crisp percale, smooth sateen, soft jersey knit, or cozy flannel.
You’ll find pillow shams in colors, patterns, and prints to inspire you in our collection. Build a bed with black and white chic, or opt for soothing earth tones. Select spice-hued shams for a warm, inviting look, or go with neutral-on-neutral florals and scrolls for sheer sophistication. Our wide selection of high-quality shams has just what you need to put the finishing touch on every bedroom.
A sham is a primarily decorative bedding item that slips over a pillow and secures in the back or on the sides. Shams are not meant to be slept on, but are meant to complement other pieces and bring interest to the bed.
A sham slips over a bed pillow and is often placed in front of or on top of the pillows you sleep on as the finishing touch to a layered bedding look.
Pillow shams are intended as a decorative bedding item rather than a functional one, and may feature beading or embroidery that makes it uncomfortable. While you can sleep on a sham, we recommend using a regular pillowcase instead.
A sham is not the same as a comforter: This primarily decorative bedding piece slips over a pillow and is intended to add interest to the bed. Shams are often sold in sets with matching comforters, so you can create a cohesive look atop your bed.
