How to Find the Right Cushion: What to Keep in Mind
Cushion Filling: The Field of Use is Crucial
The filling of your cushion or pillow depends on its field of use. Feathers and down are used for decorative cushions, couch pillows, sofa cushions and cuddly pillows. They warm us and make the home really comfy. Cushions with loose flakes can easily be shaken up and adapt to the body. Floor cushions, primarily used to sit on, need a firmer filling, which can withstand body weight. That’s why they are often filled with foam or other solid flakes. These fillings ideally carry and support the body.
Cushion Covers for Indoor and Outdoor Use
Removable cushion covers are an advantage both for indoor as well as outdoor areas. Most fabric covers can be washed. Also, the pillow cover can be adjusted to your taste. Whether the cover is equipped with buttons or a zipper is up to your personal preference.
The material of which the cover is made of is most important regarding the choice of the cushion. Cushion covers that are used indoors, often consist of cotton. The material is easy to clean, and harmonizes with every furnishing style. Cushion covers made of cotton also have a comfortable feel on the skin. Pillowcases and cushion covers made of other materials create different visual effects. Wool covers and knitted covers seem classic and comfortable. Synthetic cushions are robust and easy to maintain, and partly even fireproof. Felt cushions are durable and stable in their form.
Outdoor brands like Skagerak and Weishäupl work with weather-resistant materials. Upholstery fabrics such as Dolan or Barriere are made of acrylic or polyester and are able to withstand wind and weather. They are waterproof, UV resistant and can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth. Make also sure that the inner filling of the outdoor cushions is also able to withstand moisture.
Size and Shape: A Cushion for Every Use
Pillows and sofa cushions usually have a standard size of 80 x 80cm. This size allows the head getting enough space when relaxing and to sleep comfortably. Decorative cushions are a bit smaller. They usually have the sizes 40 x 40cm or 50 x 50cm. This has the advantage that they decorate the sofa, armchair and Co without taking up too much space on the seat. Special forms of the cushions, such as floor cushions have no standardized dimensions. You’ll find the cushion’s and cover’s sizes in the properties on each product page.
Whether round cushions or square cushions, balls or other forms - make the choice according to your personal preference. But keep in mind that cushions in unusual shapes, such as the Chango cushion by OK Design, are ideal as an eye-catcher, but not suitable to relax on it.
Pattern and Design: Cushions for Any Season
In Spring as well as Summer, we love cushions in fresh colors, while in Fall and Winter, muted colors and warm shades are needed.
Just like the fabric, the cushion pattern decides whether the look is modern or classic, simple or extravagant. Digital prints, graphic patterns, black and white combinations, color gradient, typography and color blocking are only a few ways to fundamentally change the effect and appearance of a cushion. Here we offer cushions and cushion covers by Vitra, Kvadrat and other designer pillow variants and designs for every taste.
