They provide us with comfort, add to the decorations in our homes, and can serve as something to cuddle with when going to sleep. I am referring to none other than our beloved cushions! I can bet that all of us have cushions in our homes. They have become a necessity in home decoration. The basic function of cushions is to provide comfort and serve as decorative objects in homes or offices. A cushion is usually made of fabric although they can sometimes be made of leather or plastic as well. They are stuffed with cotton, wool, hair, feather and even paper.
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.
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.
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.
