Bedroom Cushions are the 'go to' item for brightening up a bed or adding interest to a piece of French furniture that's in need of a new lease of life (and they'll be easier on the purse too!).
Cushion Design - Choosing your Style
Cushions are the best way to add character to your room, and the multitude of styles and textures means you can really choose cushions to suit your particular style. Choose from spots, stripes, rococo swirls, quatrefoil patterning, ruffles, pompoms, pineapples, chevrons, trees, chinoiserie, patchwork, hexagons, crochet, insects and French toile... to name but a few of our cushion designs!
If less is more to you then choose a simple romantic French white cushion with delicate detailing, or go for full style points and opt for a statement-making design with a pair of geometric or striped cushions.
One Cushion, or (Twenty) Two?!
Whether you opt for one centre-piece cushion or two cushions popped in front of your pillows, or even a cluster, they will make the perfect finishing touch for your bed linen styling. Cushions make the bed more of an inviting platform, ensuring it can be used as a resting perch for watching movies, reading magazines, or chatting with friends.
There are three way to style your cushions:
Single status: one centre-piece cushion is the obvious option for a single bed, propped against the pillow, but on a double bed it acts as a great mask for the join between two pillows. For a single bed a boudoir size cushion (30x50cm) works best, whilst on a double bed a square cushion (45x45 or 50x50cm) is preferable. One cushion is also a great option if you've opted for a real statement-making design.
All Paired up: the smartest option, and very hotel-chic, the paired option works best with square cushions well plumped and propped in front of each pillow. Always choose matching cushions if pairing them.
The Cluster: remember the scene from Along Came Polly where Ben Stiller tells Jennifer Aniston that his multitude of cushions take him four minutes each morning to arrange and four minutes each evening to remove? But didn't they look great?! It needn't take that long, and a cluster of thoughtfully arranged cushions is our favourite way to stamp your individual style on your room.
Ethically Plumped - Cushion Inners Chosen with Care
Finally, always ensure your cushions are filled with a feather pad, as it gives them maximum 'plumpage' and a far more luxurious finish. All of our cushions come complete with a feather pad, and we always insist on rigorous control in the production and supply of the feathers – as this is sadly an area where cost savings can mean cruel production methods.
