It’s hard to imagine a living room or bedroom without cushions. They have become important elements in interior spaces that change the theme or mood of your home without spending a lot.
Cushions have long been part of history. As early as the Middle Ages, these ornamental pieces in leather or luxe materials completed the extravagance of palaces and courts. A type of cushion called carreau, where one kneels behind the king in a church, was even regarded as highly precious in France.
Today, cushions have become a foundation in home décor. Functionality-wise, they soften the rigidity of hard furniture, and they provide you with comfort while sitting down or laying on your bed to give you that ultimate sensation of feeling at home.
Cushions are stuffed with fillings that determine the level of softness. Determined by your personal choice, they can be stuffed with anything from feathers, wool, polyester material or even hair or shredded paper.
If you want to redecorate your home, channelling your home’s overall colour and theme into the cushions chosen is a great and inexpensive way to do it. Cushions are guaranteed to give an instant lift to your interiors. A dull space is revived just by adding cushions with vibrant covers and different textures. A lemon yellow silk geometric print cushion by Cornermill, for example, injects life into a charcoal sofa.
Focusing your styling energies on cushions can also set the temperament of the interior, making it either sombre or warm. These elements also change the mood of your home, for example they can create a romantic feeling or a fun atmosphere.
Cushions also enable you to switch from one season to another straightaway. Winter to spring transition can happen from one day to the next like magic. Cushions in vivid turquoise, like the ikat patterned offerings from One Duck Two, against white decorations can create a cooling effect in your home.
Should you wish to keep up with trends, the most fuss-free way to do it is through cushions. You can go from blue scheme one season to ethnic patterns in the next. Whatever the next big trend, it’s soft and easy as a feather to incorporate it into cushions.
Indeed, cushions are your instant canvas for transforming your home and for saving you from shocking expenses.
