Cushions probably are one of the most important homes accessories you can own. They not only provide pops of colour, texture and luxury but also with a low price tag, they can be easily traded out with changes in trends and seasons.
Having the right cushions in your living room can make all the difference in the room altogether. They are the easiest way to bring the change; without having to redecorate the whole place with an added advantage of being easily removable if you end up making a blunder.
With the right pillows, you can bring life even to a dull room. However, it is extremely important that you know how to choose the right sizes and shapes, the right number of pillows, the right textures and the right colour.

Vary Shapes & Sizes
Bring out the dimension to your living room by playing around with scale – from rectangular to square shaped, big to small…
There are four basic sizes for selection of cushions –
Standard: 19″ x 26″
Queen: 19″ x 30″
King: 20″ x 36″
Euro: 26″ x 26″
Play around with patterns
You should always choose a style that speaks to you. You should try to make a combination of patterned pillows with well-balanced colour palettes. You should try to establish a contrast with a divergent colour, pattern or texture to define the extremity.
Focus On Textures
There are various textures and designs to choose from. Right from eclectic shag and embroidery to luxurious linen and silk. Notice how textures work together to choose the most convenient combination.
