How to style cushions

Selection of orange and white stripe pattern cushions

Springtime can often bring motivation for an at-home styling refresh, and changing your cushions is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to update your interiors in an instant. Whether it is to decorate your bedroom or make your living room more cosy, here’s how to style your cushions. We know it can be overwhelming when faced with so many options in a wall of cushions in store. Let us help you narrow it down. 

Not sure where to start your styling? Choose one cushion design you love and go from there. 

How to style cushions: COLOUR – TEXTURE – SIZE & SHAPE

Colour

Pick a palette. If there are bright colours or lots of patterns, add in some neutrals to tone in with your existing interiors at home.

TEXTURE

Linen and cotton are breathable options – perfect for little ones as they are practical and easy to clean. But why not add some natural Jute for a variation in texture?

SIZE & SHAPE

Remember comfort is key. Too many cushions just means extra tidying – as well as taking up too much space – so keep it minimal. Try layering different sizes: large square cushions at the back, followed by smaller square designs, then the mini rectangular lumbar cushions at the front.

Large oversized cushions are perfect to use on the floor, too (try the STELLA cushion). So when that rain just won’t go away – indoor picnic anyone?

The other room you might want to add a cushion or two is your dining room. Add cushions on a carver chair – try the Hamptons Raffles – or to a bench seat for extra comfort. The New York bench is an ideal addition to your hallway also, as a perfect place to sit and put your shoes on.
