Luxury Cushion Styling Ideas for Your Home

Luxury Cushion Styling Ideas for Your Home

Cushions are undoubtably one of the easiest ways to transform the look and feel of your home, injecting personality, cosiness, and comfort. We’ve pulled together some fun and creative styling tips to show you how simple it is to update a space, without spending a fortune.

We also spoke to Interior Designer, Lulu Bullock-Webster of LBW Interiors, to talk about luxury cushion styling and what makes a cushion desirable. Read on to hear some of her professional pearls of wisdom.

Dress Up Your Sofa

Be playful and mix cushion sizes, textures, and patterns to make a sofa feel inviting and add interest to the room. It’s all about stirring the senses with gorgeous tactile fabrics and sumptuous cushion fillings. Fabrics that feel incredible against your skin, like the ultra-soft Tides cushion cover, made from a warm and snug blend of recycled brushed cotton. Why not add a few cushions to your favourite reading chair too, continuing that luxury feel?

Playroom Cheer

Bring some character to the playroom with bundles of soft, squishy cushions! We all know how much children love to incorporate cushions into their games, and they inevitably migrate from the sofa to the floor! From den building to snuggly book reading, kids love as many cushions as they can get their hands on! Parents will be happy to hear that our cushions are hard wearing and easy to care for, being machine washable, so perfectly suited to playrooms or children’s bedrooms. They are also generously sized, making them great to use as floor cushions. And kids love the bold Cornish Surfer wave motif, reminding them of happy days at the beach splashing in the sea.

Pops of Colour in the Bedroom

Sometimes a bedroom can lack soul, and a cushion refresh can be exactly what’s needed to introduce colour, softness, and style. Make a design statement using eye-catching cushions as a centrepiece. And bring a super luxe feel to your bed with a stylish cushion arrangement, layering cushions of varying shape and size. Think about blending plump, square cushions with rectangular and bolster cushions, for that hotel room ambience.

Bring a Coastal Vibe to the Garden

The joy of cushions is that you can make seasonal changes and move them from room to room or indoors to outdoors. It may still be February, but there’s no reason you can’t enjoy a Wintery starlit evening around the fire pit, surrounded by The Cornish Surfer cushions and oversized blankets for warmth. The durable nature of brushed cotton means that our cushions are robust enough to use outdoors, adding comfort to garden sofas and benches. With a classic stripe and our iconic wave design, they bring a timeless nautical elegance to your outside space.

Words From An Interior Designer

We chatted all things cushions with Lulu from LBW Interiors in London. She explained that sustainability is a huge trend in interiors at the moment and people are looking for recycled and recyclable interior furnishings, with an emphasis on using surplus fabric to minimise landfill.

The Cornish Surfer proudly produce eco-friendly homewares and our luxury cushion inners are made entirely from recycled plastic bottles, meaning that we are doing good for the planet.

Lulu’s Top Cushion Tips

- Pairs of matching cushions look great for a symmetrical and chic aesthetic.
- Try layering, with the largest cushions at the back, moving forward to the smallest cushions at the front.
- A quality filling makes for a luxury cushion.
- Cushions look best placed on a straight edge, rather than on a corner as a diamond shape.
- You can use the side of your hand to ‘chop’ a cushion on its sides and top for a smart and opulent look.

We hope this has provided some inspiration to bring a little luxury into your home. Have fun experimenting with your cushions!
