It’s very similar to Harry, Ron and Hermionie.
A sofa and a couple of cushions will work in perfect harmony to defeat the dark Lord Voldemort. Just a couple of cushions to upgrade your sofa.
It’s a classic story about how this greater-than-the-sum-of-their-parts trio work together to take down an evil much more powerful than any of them individually.
Right now your cushionless furniture is just a Harry on its own.
Don’t let your cushionless sofa be a lonesome Harry.
The Chesterfield Sofa
Sure, the Chesterfield is iconic.
You love yours and rightly so, they’re great.
Just because it was commissioned by the Earl of Chesterfield in the mid-18th Century doesn’t mean that every image of a Chesterfield needs to include a Union Jack cushion on it.
Plain cushions work well.
Balance against the pattern of the of the tufted buttons.
By now you’ll be aware, Chesterfields are typically made firm. You’ll want to make sure your cushions reflect this.
Plump and fluffy.
The color depends upon the sofa you’ve chosen and the rest of the room.
Chances are you’ve gone for brown though.
Dark brown works with cream or off-white cushions.
Lighter brown works well with gold cushions. A word of caution though, be careful with this one. The aesthetic can quickly deteriorate into tackiness if it’s not done correctly.
Your Various Armchairs
There’s limited real estate on an armchair.
Cushions are notoriously territorial.
Fiercely roaming their 3/4 square meter in search of a mate.
Without question, you will be kicked off the seat at a moment’s notice. When you glance back you will be met only by snarling teeth.
What we’re getting at here is that you don’t want to buy a cushion that’s too big for your armchair or it’s going to be a waste of money.
The best way to judge a cushion is to look at the chair.
Determine the ratio of style to function and pick your cushion accordingly.
Accordingly, in this sense, means choosing the opposite to the chair.
If your reading chair is beautiful, but lacks support, buy a cushion or pillow for the lumbar support. If the chair is great to sit in, but drab, buy a cushion to sow your seed of personality.
The Mustard sofa
Your first wave of thought: who would buy a mustard colored sofa?
Your second wave of thought: why don’t I have a mustard colored sofa?
Well what are you waiting for?
And, while, you’re at it, make sure you buy the cushions described below too.
The important concept to note with these recommendations: mustard is a dark shade of vivid yellow, you need to pair this which whichever color of cushions you choose or this isn’t going to work.
Accent your mustard sofa with black cushions.
Now, you never thought you’d be buying black accessories, but here we are.
For a bit more brightness, violet.
Back to the natural tones and it’s brown cushions with your mustard sofa.
If brown is the color of dirt then fuchsia and magenta are the colors of the berries that are growing in it.
Give these a go (separately).
Pallet Seating Area
Are you strapped for cash, but still need to sit down?
Pallet seats could be what you’re looking for.
Sourcing the pallets is the easy part, but you’ll be falling through them without a suitable cushion.
And, would you believe it? There are such things as pallet seat cushions.
The answer to your prayers.
You’ll need one large square cushion for your ass and two medium-size plump cushions for your backrest.
Cushions For All
Is having a comfortable living room not what we all strive for in life?
All 7.5 billion humans.
Many don’t get the chance to create their own utopia, but you do.
Don’t squander this opportunity.
Take action and seize the day.
