Cushion Covers Frequently Asked Questions

How can I choose the right cushions for my home?

Bright coloured cushions and cushion covers are a great way to add style and jazz to our sofa and home in general. Consider playing around with the colours and patterns until you get what you are looking for.

The type of cushions you choose should depend on the effect you want to achieve. If you have a lot of artwork or rugs, bold-coloured cushions will look great. Try to find a common link between the patterns and colours. Decide on a specific colour and work around it. Consider blending contemporary and classic designs.

Are bespoke cushions a good idea?

If you have trouble finding the right cushions for your seats, consider getting bespoke ones. They are unique and they allow you to get exactly what you want. Custom cushions are made in the shape, style, and pattern that suit your needs.

How do I choose the right size of cushions for my seats?

When trying to find the right sized cushions for your seats, consider mixing up different sizes. If your sofa is large, consider using a 60-centimetre cushion with a 55-centimetre one in front of it. Use smaller cushions for smaller sofas.

How many cushions should I use on my seats?

When adding cushions to your seats, it is important to find a balance. Having very many cushions may make your seats look too busy. For a two-seater, the right number of cushions is three. Find a base colour and let your patterns work around it. The number of cushions you use depends on the size. Larger sofas allow you to use more pillows. The number of cushions you choose all goes down to personal expression. Avoid using cushions whose patterns or colours are clashing.

Is it okay to mix different patterns and prints for my cushion covers?

It is perfectly fine to mix different prints and patterns when choosing your cushion covers. Use them to express your style and develop your theme. You should, however, be careful not to use too many of them. The colours, patterns, and prints should complement each other. If you have trouble finding the right patterns and prints, consider getting the opinion of a professional.

Can I get help fitting the cushions?

It can be difficult to fit the cushion covers without help. If you wish, we can help you fit them at a small fee. We resend them to you when they are ready to put onto the sofa.

Are the seat covers machine washable?
