Cushions are very ancient items of furniture, they date back to the Middle Ages. Originally a cushion was quite large in size, and firm enough to serve as a seat. Over time as furniture has evolved from hard robust items, to the smaller more comfortable furniture that we see today, the cushion has evolved to be smaller in size, and could now be considered a luxury item. Nowadays there is a wealth of cushions to choose from for your home.
The job of decorating with cushions gives you the option of being daring and highly experimental without over dominating a room. You may choose a touch of exotic for a particular room with silk hand made cushions, or you may choose a striking contrast to a light coloured room with vivid and bold colours. Whatever theme is decided upon a sense of style and comfort can be added to a particular area with the addition of quality cushions.
Cushions were placed on chairs and benches for a lord or lady and it was a fashion statement that was designated to a person who was considered high in rank. Cushions were not for common people. In seventeenth century Spain, for example, a luxury cushion was a symbol of aristocratic authority.
We dont only see cushions in our homes, but seats in buses and trains sometimes make use of cushions too. They provide comfort for passengers who are traveling long distances. Cushions are able to soften hardness or angle of a chair, which is why they are used in buses and trains. Some people may even use them at home when sitting on the floor or hard surfaces. They can serve as support for the head, an alternative to pillows, when we are reading something or watching TV while lying down.
