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.
A Cushion is a soft bag usually of some fancy material, stuffed with wool, feathers, polyester staple fiber,etc - also known as throw pillow or toss pillow, which is a cushion that is purely decorative and not designed for support or comfort.It may be used to soften the hardness or angle of a chair or sofa.
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.
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.
