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.
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 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.
It really is so simple and a really inexpensive way to make a huge difference. The earliest record of when people started using cushions as a decorative piece of furniture was in the medieval times. Cushions were then used in grand houses and luxurious mansions. At that time they were not made out of the great assortment of fabrics available today, they were all made in leather - How lucky are we.
