The job of decorating with cushions gives you the option of being daring and highly experimental without over dominating a room. You may choose a touch of exotic for a particular room with silk hand made cushions, or you may choose a striking contrast to a light coloured room with vivid and bold colours. Whatever theme is decided upon a sense of style and comfort can be added to a particular area with the addition of quality cushions.
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.
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.
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.
