Cushions – My top 5!

Cushions.  They’re the decorative accessory that just keep giving.

Really, they do.

I’ve alluded to my unhealthy obsession with cushions in a previous blog post.  I don’t want to repeat myself but I WILL say this.

Once you develop an appreciation for the design merits of cushions, you won’t look back.  Your life will never be the same again.

You’ll try (desperately) to convince others of their greatness too.  But hey, if other people don’t ‘get it’, that’s their problem, right?

Never take your cushion for granted.  Actually, I think you should probably go RIGHT NOW and plump your cushions.

Yea, that’s right.  EVERY single one.

Plump them!  

Plump ’em good!

So, in celebration of the humble cushion, I did a bit of online snooping and decided to share my top 5.

Let’s do this!

Cox and Cox Painterly Cushion

Edgy, grungy painted prints on cushions is STILL a huge trend and is awesome in an urban, contemporary space BUT this style of cushion can be incorporated into a more eclectic interior to help inject a little bit of quirkiness.

M&S Contrast Piped Cushion

At £15.00 this cushion is a steal.  A STEAL!  M&S have illustrated that whilst they may be known for more subdued styling, they can still have a little fun by going all neon pink on us.  The genius in this cushion, is the restrained shot of colour.  LOVE.

This cushion is ready for its close up, click here for more info.

John Lewis Harlequin Amazilia Cushion

I gotta admit, I’m not a fan of animal/nature prints, I’ve yet to establish why but the instant I clapped eyes on this cushion from Harlequin, I was entranced.  It’s so graceful and sophisticated that it DESERVES a spot on my top 5.

Take a closer look at its whimsical goodness here.

Andrew Martin Cartoon Strip Cushion

This cushion from Andrew Martin has it all: it’s kooky, vintage inspired AND has typography.

My work here is done.

Bathe in this cushion’s awesomeness here.

                                                       John Lewis Balance Cushion

    I was immediately attracted to the colour palette of this cushion.  The combination of navy and pink (the John Lewis website has described this colour as ‘red’…huh?) is pretty nifty, with very on trend retro vibes.  The geometric pattern could be a deal breaker for some due to its three dimensional quality but that just makes me love it even more.  Click here for more info.

    I love your cushion picks and I also have an obsession with cushions… so much so that I have launched my own textile and cushion brand – if you like bold, colourful and playful you’ll hopefully love them!

      Hi Nadia, thank you for reading my blog post! I checked out your website, you’ve got some awesome designs. I particularly like the chevron designs and ESPECIALLY the Plunge design of the pixel effect cushion. Do you have a photo of that cushion from the front?
