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 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.
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.
