  • How To Arrange Cushions


    An empty sofa or bed is like a blank canvas, and by using luxury scatter cushions, you can completely bring a room to life. Think of it as free reign to create whatever look you like, swapping cushions in and out as trends and styles come and go. For the indecisive among us, it’s the perfect design compromise. There are no definitive rules but if you’re not sure where to begin, just follow these six simple tips for how to arrange cushions from our Head of Interior Design.

     

    1. PLUMP IT UP

    “Banish limp corners by ensuring you push the corners of your cushion pad right into the corners of the cover. For extra plump cushions, use a cushion pad one size bigger than the cover.”

     

    2. MIX AND MATCH

    “Don’t be afraid to mix and match. It’s good to have an eclectic combination of cushions. Use different fabrics, but make sure they all complement one another.”

     

    3. LOOK AT THE BIGGER PICTURE

    “Take the piece of furniture into account when creating your arrangement; there is such as thing as too many cushions! Look at all the colours and patterns you have to work with before making a decision on how to arrange them. The strongest cushion doesn¹t necessarily always have to go at the front.”

     

    4. PLAY WITH SCALE

    “Use different sized cushions and add an extra dimension to your arrangement by placing a smaller cushion in a complementary colour in front of a large one.”

     

    5. IT'S WHAT'S ON THE INSIDE THAT COUNTS

    “For indoor cushions, choose a pad made of feathers or a feather and down mix, as they are good quality and will hold their shape. Fibre filled cushion pads work better for cushions that are used outside.”

     

    6. A CUSHION FOR ALL SEASONS

    “Change your cushion covers each season and acknowledge the fabrics and colours you choose; go for rich velvets in winter, textured linen in summer, pale blue and green colours in spring, and orange and brown colours in autumn.”
