The power of the soft furnishing cushion is huge!
Whether you love country style interiors or contemporary spaces, cushions have the ability to totally complete a design scheme.
Here are my FIVE TOP TIPS for using the humble cushion:
1. They are quick and simple to make.
Natural linen fabric used to create elegant country style.
2. Cost effective as they use very little fabric.
Two metres should easily make covers for four average size cushions.
Cotton natural fabric creates beautiful piped cushions.
3. Cushions are perfect for show casing expensive fabrics (see 2. above).
Curtain fabric and blind fabric in the same room can then be made in lower cost materials in contrasting patterns or colours to complete a luxurious scheme.
Embroidered James Hare fabric is ideal for a splash of luxury.
4. Cushions are perfect for a speedy makeover providing comfort, colour and style.
Quickly change your colour scheme with a few stylish cushions.
5. Hand made cushions make a delightfully original and personal gift.
Natural fabric 100% linens are perfect for pretty country style interiors.
It is best to avoid fabrics which are very flimsy or have a loose weave as these will not hold their shape or wear very well. Silk material, natural fabrics in linen and most types of cotton will all make a perfect cushion cover.
