Made to Measure Designer Cushions

What cushions should I choose for my living room sofas and chairs?

For a sofa,  we would suggest 3 or 5 cushions, and for a chair choose 1 to 3 cushions, depending on the size of the sofa and chair.  

Even numbers of cushions look more traditional: especially if they are placed on a sofa or bed symmetrically 

Whereas odd numbers give a more modern, relaxed aesthetic.

Can I mix up patterns with my cushion choices?

You can mix and match cushion fabrics for a unique look – how about a contrasting colour for the piping to help frame the design? Or go double-sided so you can turn the cushion around when you fancy a change!"

Choose three designs

1. Pick a floral or botanical pattern (or similar vibe), with at least two colours in the pattern (e.g. Cow Parsley, Herbaceous Border, Down to Earth, Wild Fern).
2. Choose a large-scale geometric pattern or stripe (e.g. French Ticking, Simple Ticking Detail, Stockholm Stripe, Stripe and Dash).
3. Pick a small-scale geometric pattern or solid (e.g. Little Fern, Pretty Maids, Lattice Leaf, Acorn & Leaf. We have many Plain Linen Unions to choose from too).

You can incorporate three different patterns, so long as each design includes at least one of the colours in the three-colour story you have chosen.

Mix textures, too: pattern and colour mixing is important, but texture should not be overlooked, add in a lovely velvet or wool cushion or two."

Choose your colours

First, choose a "colour story" to follow for your cushion selection. It's best to use three different colours pulled from other sources in the room, such as the wall colour, the rug, your bedding or the curtains.
If you choose a variety of cushions in different patterns but with these three colours, the look will be cohesive.

The back cushions should be larger (18" x 18" and probably plain zipped and piped) but the front cushions can mix it up a little with some smaller, prettier extras (frilled or with ties...) These cushions are there to look lovely while your base cushions do the legwork."
