So many of us concentrate on matching colours and prints, they really dont need to match at all. Flowers and stripes or checks are great together and different shades of colours look good too. Dont feel you need to match your cushions with your curtains or furniture play around with fabric to see what works best for you.
A cushion is not only a practical item but also has a beautiful decorative element, a cushion should feel soft and comfortable. Lines, silks and cottons are very popular due to the nature of these fabrics. Possible design inspirations could be natural designs that use the colours and shapes of nature as inspiration to create a lovely atmosphere in your home. Colourful floral cushions look wonderful with traditional and classically elegant decor. In a modern and contemporary home, bold and strongly geometric cushion shapes may be considered.
Cushions are available in a variety of shapes, such shapes as bow cushions, star or heart cushions which are available in a wide range of colours and styles. However, the standard square cushions are still preferred. Large sized cushions are best used on the floor and offer great comfort when used on sofas or beds while resting. Cushions can be made using a variety of materials such as linen, cotton, velvet, vinyl or leather. Many different textures are also available and the feel of a cushion should be considered prior to purchase.
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.
