9 Best Luxury Cushions to Buy for your Home

These designer cushions will take your interior to another level

Jessica Harding By Jessica HardingSenior Creative Buyer

How is it that you distinguish which are the best cushions to have in the home? Does filling matter most or fabric? Should they be patterned cushions or plain? Is it better to have them all of the same size and shape or does a mixture produce a more pleasing effect?

The answer, as with many conundrums in interior design, is to achieve considered, complementary variation. This round-up of nine of the best sofa cushions is a useful place to start your search.

The Best Plain Cushions

Plain cushions are often the base, the background, the blank canvas for building a cushion scheme. To achieve cushion cohesion, select pillows that are of the same colour or the same fabric type so that there’s no risk of a clash on your sofa.

THE BEST PATTERNED CUSHIONS

While you can dress a sofa, bed or window seat with one style of cushion alone, on the whole, the result will be far richer if you contrast plain cushions with those patterned.

To prevent your selection from becoming too chaotic, pick patterns with a common theme, such as geometrics or florals, or whose motifs are in the same colour.

Some cushions are designed to sit back in a scheme whereas others prefer to step forward and make themselves known. Such is the case with this ember-rich piece. The yarn has a light-reflecting sheen lending it an almost silken appearance and will look warm and comforting in autumn and terracotta-baked come summer.

THE BEST TEXTURED CUSHIONS

While colour and pattern are providers of visual texture, introducing a select few tactile textured cushions promises more intrigue in a room. Consider not just the feel of the fabrics, but the effect of tassels, fringing, raised weaves and threads in opposing directions.

It’s also wise to choose textures that have some presence on your other cushion choices—creating links and features in common between pillows will help them to sit well with one another.
