Don’t be afraid to experiment – cushions are a relatively inexpensive way to try out different styles and trends.

Are you looking to add some comfort and character to your living space? Cushions are the perfect addition to any home décor. They provide not only comfort but also a pop of colour, texture, and style.

But how do you choose the right cushions for your home? Here are some tips to help you pick the perfect cushions:


Choosing the right cushion insert:

The cushion insert is crucial to ensure that your cushions are comfortable and durable over time.

There are several types of cushion inserts available, including Feather Cushion Inserts and Polyester Cushion Inserts.

Our Feather Cushion Inserts are made from duck feather fillings and are known for their softness and plush feel. They are fantastic as decorative cushions and the natural insulation meaning they’re great to snuggle up with on cold winter days.

Our Polyester Cushion Inserts are Australian Made and are budget friendly. The filling is plump, lightweight and bouncy and they are easy to maintain.

When considering shape and size, think about which furniture you’ll be placing the cushions on. Mix and match different sizes to create a layered look.


Styling your cushions:

Once you’ve chosen your cushion inserts, it’s time to style them in your home by adding a cushion cover.

To add depth and interest to your décor, mix and match patterns and textures. Choose patterns that will complement each other, such as a floral design like Kalina with a geometric pattern like Meridian.

Layering your cushions is a great way to create a cosy and inviting space. Start with a square, larger cushion at the back, such as Aspen and then pop a smaller, rectangular cushion at the front, such as Taya.

Don’t be afraid to experiment – cushions are a relatively inexpensive way to try out different styles and trends.


Maintaining your cushions:

To keep your cushions looing and feeling great, it’s important to maintain them properly. Remember these tips when caring for your cushions:

Fluffing your cushions regularly helps to maintain their shape and prevent them from becoming flat. Spot-clean your cushions with a mild detergent and warm water if they get stained. Rotating your cushions regularly helps to distribute the wear and tear evenly. When they’re not in use, store your cushions in a cool, dry place to prevent moisture.

Remember that both cushion insert and cushion cover will need to be washed often!


At Lorraine Lea, we offer a wide range of cushions, including our Cadence Cushions, which come pre-filled and only require a spot clean! Visit our living range to add some finishing touches to your home décor. With these tips in mind, you can choose the perfect cushions for your home and create a cosy and inviting space.
