Accessorise Your Home with Colourful and Comfortable Cushions
Cushions are an essential part of your life that often go unnoticed. They provide comfort and support and add a splash of colour to any room. You can use these stylish accessories to add a decorative touch to your bed, sofa, loveseat or patio furniture. Many are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The selection includes colours, textures, patterns and details to match any theme. Available in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials, cushions add style and functionality to a room's decor.
A pillow's filling is one of its most important features. Cushions may be filled with foam, polyfil, down, natural latex, micro-beads, horsehair, wool or even herbs and seeds. Choose a fill based on where the pillow will be used and your personal preferences. For purely decorative throw pillows, polyfil is an affordable option, but it may flatten over time. Down is soft and retains its fluffiness the longest. For back support, you may want a firmer fill material, such as memory foam, wool, horsehair or natural latex. Therapeutic cushions filled with beans, seeds or herbs can provide soothing head and neck support, and many can be heated for relaxation. If you have allergies, look for hypoallergenic options such as natural latex, polyester and micro-beads.
Style is a deciding factor. Decorative bed, sofa and chair cushions come in a multitude of creative shapes, colours and materials, and the choice ultimately comes down to personal taste. However, certain shapes offer both comfort and flair. Bolsters are tube-shape pillows that provide excellent support, and, depending on the decorative details, can enhance decor styles ranging from Victorian to modern. Round pillows add a fun accent and can provide good lumbar support. Full-length body pillows are suitable for filling space on a bed or futon and make lounging more comfortable. Relax with cushions that meet your needs.
