No matter how handsome a sofa is, I always think that there’s something missing until it is decorated with cushions. Rather like putting on a beautiful necklace, or a stunning pair of earrings to complete an outfit, cushions are an essential part of any decorating scheme. In fact, the most fun part!
Rule number one. Cushions should be chosen individually. Never in matching sets please!
Rule number two. The style of the sofa should be taken into consideration first of all and then in no particular order, colour, pattern, fabric and texture. It’s always nice to have a mixture of patterns and textures especially, which will add even more interest.
Rule number three. Have some fun! Cushions are relatively inexpensive to replace so you can ring the changes with the seasons or just update them when you have tired of them. A little ‘tongue in cheek’ is always tasteful when it’s done in small doses too.
Rule number four. Check out the recently re-launched LuxDeco website where I selected all of these luxury sofas and designer cushions.
