Here you can find out what you should pay attention to when buying a pillow.
"Cushions made of special materials, such as sheepskin, are a beautiful statement and particularly cuddly, but can only be seen as pure decorative cushions. If you really need a pillow to lean on or snuggle up every day, you'd rather use flat and densely woven pillowcases in unusual colours and patterns". Victoria, furnishing expert
For outdoor use manufacturers such as Fermob , Skagerak and Weishäuptl on weatherproof materials. Upholstery fabrics such as dolan or barrier are made of acrylic or polyester and can withstand wind and weather. They are waterproof, UV-resistant and easy to clean with a damp cloth. With outdoor cushions, also make sure that the cushion filling also tolerates moisture.
Synthetic cushion fillings made of foam or polyester wadding are somewhat cheaper to purchase and are also absolutely easy to care for as they can be washed at low temperatures. They also offer an advantage for allergy sufferers against materials of animal origin. A disadvantage of synthetic cushion fillings is the lack of heat storage and the use of non-natural resources.
Rectangular cushion shapes are particularly suitable for placing on an armchair or bed. They take up the wide dimensions of the pieces of furniture and at the same time offer comfort for head and back. Square cushions, on the other hand, do not take up much space and can be easily arranged on a chair, for example, which thus gains in cosiness.
Whether round cushions or square cushions, balls or other shapes - here only your personal taste decides. Note that decorative cushions in unusual shapes, such as the Knot Cushion from Design House Stockholm, are ideal eye-catchers, but not suitable for snuggling up.
Graphic and elegant in black and white
For those who don't like it too colourful and still want to set accents with cushions on the bed or sofa, the best choice is a black and white combination. At the same time, it is possible to play with eye-catching patterns and shapes at will, while at the same time maintaining a recognisable connection through the coordinated choice of colours.
Color mix in pastel shades
If you want to combine several colours, it is advisable to choose one of the cushions as the "connecting piece", which contains all the colours of the ensemble. This creates a harmonious arrangement in spite of different materials, shapes and colours.
"With cushions you can change the effect of a sofa and sometimes even the whole room in a flash. A restrained, monochrome sofa landscape with colourful cushions quickly becomes an eye-catcher. If you don't want to commit to one colour, you can adapt your colour concept to suit the seasons or your new favourite colour." Victoria, furnishing expert
Soft Minimalism tone-in-tone
For a soothing and uniform look in the living ambience, it is best to combine cushions in similar colours. The tone-in-tone combination in Soft Minimalism style creates a cosy atmosphere with a noble touch. Light patterns and structures on the cushion covers provide an additional eye-catcher.
Pattern and material mix in Boho style
Hippie flair in Boho style is created by a cushion combination in different colors and materials. The mix-and-match principle allows everything that pleases. However, in order to create a harmonious overall picture, colours and shapes should be reflected in the different cushions. Also a certain topic can be pursued: If you feel attracted to nature, for example, you can choose cushion covers in green tones or with floral motifs and combine them with natural materials such as skins.
