Expert Advices How To Combine Sofa Cushions And Win

Are you fascinated by ‘magazine’ sofas? Here are some keys to combine the cushions on the sofa and make it perfect: beautiful, inviting, and ready for the photo. We found an expert in the field who gives us the best advice to get it right.

USE A MAXIMUM OF TWO COLORS FOR THE CUSHIONS

On a neutral base (a smooth, light upholstery), your cushion combination will look bigger and better. Choose two dominant colors, complementary to each other, for all the cushions.

COMBINE PLAIN AND PATTERNED

If the dominant cushion is made of geometric motifs or large flowers, for example, the other patterns should complement it but never compete with it so as not to give a feeling of chaos. And don’t forget the plain ones, which will be parentheses that will reinforce the effect of the prints. Geometric and ethnic motifs are carried.

AND GO AHEAD!

Combine square and rectangular cushions and, if you like, also some type of roll or round. And add textures. One made of suede or leather, embroidered, knitted or fur will help you add volume. Of course, one or two of this type is enough.

WHAT PATTERNS DO I CHOOSE ON THE CUSHIONS?

The cushions are textile pieces that are easy to change. Start by looking for a color that you like and then go for a style. You can look for plant motifs, geometric, striped, with pictures.

WE LIKE ETHNIC PRINTS

Tribal designs are carried, on bases in neutral tones. They combine perfectly with striped drawings, Vichy squares, and plant prints. Also ornamental designs, Ikat type, in soft tones, with an elegant point. In our case, we bet on drawings of exotic animals such as the zebra, the parrot, or the crane.

STRIPES, YES OR NO?

Yes, stripes, always, of different styles, enrich and accompany. Thicker, thinner, combining various sizes … everything! They look great if you mix them with other vegetable designs and various textures.

THE BEST FABRICS FOR CUSHIONS

They must be tasty, warm, and resistant.

  • Velvet: it is luxurious and is ideal in upholstery. Elevate any décor by combining it with something more neutral.
  • Linen:  this strong fabric looks elegant and natural. It is a natural fiber that provides freshness and very pleasant touch.
  • Corduroy: it is a striped velvet that combines robustness and softness and has become a trending fabric.
  • Cotton: this natural fabric is perfect for those allergic to mites. It is breathable and very durable.
