Cushions play an important part in your home. They add colour and comfort and can totally change the feel of a room. Change your cushions by the seasons, a much less expensive way than redecorating but achieves similar results. Think of the colours outside - bright red berries, deep green holly and snow in Winter. Bluebells, daffodils and crocus in Spring. Summer just calls out for bright colours and flowers and Autumn think of the falling leaves in golds and reds and the juice of rich dark blackberries.
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 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.
When you buy a sofa set from a store, it would probably come with cushions that match the sofa. These add to the appearance of the sofa instead of it looking rather empty when no cushions are on it. If you are going to change the covers of the cushions, make sure they are of the right size and fit your existing cushions. You can use cushions to decorate not only your sofa but any space in your living room or bedroom. For example, you can buy those really big cushions on which you can sit down, and put them in the empty corner of your room to make it look less empty and at the same time compliment the design of your room.
