One of the cornerstones of decorating yourself, your home, anything really, is accessorizing. The accessories you wear could make or break your outfit, or in this case, the room.

I’m talking about cushions, those often forgotten pieces that we sit on, lean against or fight with. We have 2 featured designers today….

1. Designer Cushions:


They “have a massive selection of hand-made modern cushions to suit your home. Designer Cushions stock a large variety of styles including funky, shabby chic and contemporary, to compliment all the rooms in your home. All of the cushions are hand-made in New Zealand from quality fabrics imported and sourced worldwide. They now have the largest selection of Tapestry Cushions / Pillows available on one site and are working on new designs. Many designs are exclusive to Designer Cushions.

Their extensive range of fabrics are always expanding, however they do offer a bespoke service; if you have some fabric of your own and want some custom cushions crafted then they help create an original look for your home. Most of their cushions come with a choice of cushion inners or as just a cushion cover ensuring you get exactly what you want.”

2. Stephen Reed:

These scrabble pieces were installed by Stephen Reed at the Bloomberg Offices in London.

“Interactive seating installation provides a short break area for employees. A collaboration with Alistair Willmott. Users can make words and leave messages with the lettered cushions. Cushions with graphic print and beech veneer benches.”
