Introduction
A room scheme can be brought to life by the addition of a few special accessories. Some interesting cushions may be all that's needed to give that finishing touch!
Exploring Cushions is the newest addition to our Design Index - a handy resource introducing you to interior design and soft furnishings design concepts. In this particular feature, we aim to give you an insight into what's available on the high street, but more importantly, inspire you with an ever expanding selection of design ideas for cushions that you can make yourself with just a little time and effort.
This guide is not intended to be exhaustive, simply to start you thinking about new ways to spice up plain cushions and encourage you to experiment with different trimmings, decorative effects and cushion shapes. As a starting point we explore a range of design variations for four different types of scatter cushion, the fifth section looks briefly at box cushions. See "In this section" above to begin.
