Cushions keep us comfy when seated or reclining, whether in the bedroom, living room or home office. What’s more, they’re a quick, easy and affordable way to change up the whole appearance of a room. Switch covers according to the season, or to match a new piece of decorative wall mirror, and you’ve got an entirely new look. So simple!
In a living room, sofa cushions can instantly uplift a too-neutral space by adding cheery pops of colour. Prefer things toned down? Go for distinctive patterns, instead. For example, a simple black pillow with bold white chevron shapes will work well on a white sofa in a monochromatic living room.
For an ethnic design aesthetic, choose cushions embroidered with a tribal print. Incorporate sculptures, masks and a rug with geometric patterns into the rest of the room. Many such styles feature interesting textural elements − such as beadwork, shells, mirrors or buttons − for tactility that instantly adds warmth and visual interest. Like texture but prefer something more classic? Why not go for oversized shapes covered in a fabric such as leather?
In a bedroom, extra bed pillows mean more comfort. On an all-white bed, place a few arts and crafts-style botanical cushions. Their interesting floral shapes and colour palettes can help you choose other décor items to carry the theme through.
Dreaming of a boho-chic outdoor entertaining space? You needn’t have everyone seated on sofas. Funky, tactile floor cushions and chair cushions will ensure your guests truly relax into the easy-going vibe of your classic furniture.
