Change is in the air. Tropical days and balmy summer nights are on the horizon and we’re looking to update our living spaces stat. But with the calendar snowballing towards Christmas, we’re also even more time-poor and budget-stretched than usual!
So, here’s a tip. Why not skip the scroll and head straight to the experts for at least one element of your spring/summer refresh. Australian family company Simply Cushions do one thing and they do it really, really well. Cushions are their focus, and they’ve taken the guesswork out of choosing the right product with an expansive, affordable range and clever styling tricks.
Cushions punch well above their weight when it comes to design impact. “For their relatively small size, ease of use and cost, they pack a real punch and can make a dramatic difference to a living space,” says Sophie of Simply Cushions. In fact, they’re one of the simplest ways to bring comfort and personality to your home or pull a fledgling design scheme together. Think of them as an essential resource for your design toolbox.
Spoiled for choice
Whether you’re looking for cheery tones of vibrant yellow, a breezy coastal palette or a hit of mid-century cool, Simply Cushions has you covered. From petite scatter beauties to robust outdoor cushions and floor options, the choice is broad and engaging.
Search by material (think faux fur and a range of velvets or gorgeous knits and machine washable cottons) then change it up according to the season, your furniture or even an occasion. The main thing is to keep eyes on your personal style. “Most people want to create a space that is not only comfortable and functional, but one which actually reveals a little about their character and personality,” notes Sophie.
Already stocked up on stuffing? Simply Cushions gives you the option to choose just the cushion cover or the cushion + insert. Makes sense!
Meet the family: stylish sets
Deciding on one gorgeous cushion is easy. Choosing a cohesive set of three or five or more? Not so much. One of the things we love about Simply Cushions is their product range includes the concept of ‘families,’ bringing together a selection of cushions which share similar design traits, under trend-focused themes of Boho Chic, Urban Modern, Coastal, Scandi and Mid-Century Modern. These lovelies can then be mixed and matched in different configurations without losing the sense of cohesion. Basically, foolproof shopping.
Simple FREE styling advice (that works!)
Just add cushions: it can be easier said than done. Sometimes even with the perfect colour combo, the finished look just doesn’t sit quite right. Which is why you can head online for styling and maintenance tips, including How to arrange cushions like a pro and our favourite, The one-minute cushion makeover. Even if you don’t think you need another cushion (is that even possible??) this Styling Tips section could really develop your existing soft furnishing songbook.
