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.
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.
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.
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.
