Cushions and throw rugs are your go-to decor accents when you’re looking to make your house a home. They add snug comfort, rich textures, and unique personality to your living spaces.
You can easily change up your decor with the seasons simply by swapping out your cushions and throw rugs. Cushions, in particular, instil pops of colour and pattern into your aesthetic, from your armchairs and sofas to your beds and outdoor lounges. The right cushions can transform your home instantly without breaking the bank.
Create an inviting and welcoming space with soft furnishings for when friends drop by. Raise the comfort levels with plump sofa cushions and cotton throws that work all year round. Bring colour to a nursery or playroom with kids’ cushions in bright patterns and novelty shapes. Have a picnic indoors or add extra seating at sleepovers and movie nights with large floor cushions. The options are endless! Here are a few tips to help you find your perfect sofa mate(s).
Cushions help you create a cohesive look. Defining your decor palette is an important step towards selecting the right cushions for your living room.
When choosing your living room cushions, look to your larger furniture pieces, like your sofas and sideboards, bookshelves and coffee tables, for your base colours. Choose cushions that pick up one or several of these hues to draw your room together.
Cushions work in tandem so consider how your cushions talk to each other. Think about how each cushion’s colour and shape works within the wider aesthetic. Do they support each other in palette and placement?
Work with an odd number of cushions for a contemporary look, or an even number for a more formal style. Larger cushions work well with breakfast cushions, while collections of small scatter cushions create a busier look.
Create a layered look with an interesting fusion of textures in your cushions. Opt for pure cotton or Mongolian lambswool, faux fur, leather, linen, velvet and more. Don’t be put off because you think a certain texture won’t match with your larger aesthetic. Natural hide cushions, for example, can be great for bringing softness to more modern spaces filled with metal and glass – they’re not just for rustic-themed interiors!
Turn up the snug factor in your bedroom with chic scatter cushions and decorative throw pillows. Opt for diverse shapes and soft textures for a plush feel. Appliqued patterns, cosy cable knits and embroidered details add visual interest to your bedroom.
Pick up the palette of your cushions in your throw rugs and other soft furnishings for that finished look.
Enhance your outdoor environment with outdoor cushions and rugs. Outdoor cushions come in a wide range of designs, from traditional stripes to tropical prints and bold block colours. Pop them on your outdoor lounges and around your dining spaces and recline in comfort!
