3 tips for using cushions to enhance your living room

Cushions are great way to bring personality to your room, giving warmth to your living space as well as adding extra support to you on your sofa. As cushions can be changed with ease, they are perfect for giving your space a mini makeover to reflect the upcoming seasons or trends.

Why not take some inspiration from La-Z-Boy with cushion styling tips on La-Z-Boy's Milano suite, and you will be living life comfortably and in style in no time.

Tip 1Texture

A great way to add a touch of luxury is to add texture. This will help create a look of sophistication and add a sense of warmth and depth to your living space. Warmer coloured cushions lend toward the coming autumn and winter months helping make the room feel inviting.

Tip 2 - Cushion size

To create visual interest why not mix it up and buy two different sized cushions in the same pattern. Then break it up and add contrast including cushions in solid colours. Or if you have an eye for style look at buying 4-5 different cushions that fit together well. Try bringing in other colour elements of your living room when selecting cushions, this will create flow and rhythm in this space.

Tip 3How many cushions should I have?

The right number of cushions is dependent on the size and style of your suite. If you like the more modern look then stick with an even number of cushions. In saying this a three-seater suite can take up to 5 cushions, and a two-seater up to four cushions.  If you looking to achieve a traditional look, then look to match cushions at each end. 

Many people ask, “how do I arrange cushions on a sofa”? This really is where you own personality shines through. There is no set rule when it comes to arranging cushions. However, one golden rule of thumb is – if you can’t sit on the sofa without pushing cushions to the floor then you’ve got too many!

 If you’re not 100% confident with your cushion styling then start with a small number of cushions, wait a few days, mix it up and build on this. Keep mixing it up until you find the arrangement you love.
