How to buy sofa cushions or throws?

There are no hard rules in buying throws and cushions. It is a way to express your own style. You can add many small cushions or clash colours and textures for punchy look. However, below are some tips to avoid disaster.


Cushions are available in different sizes. Too small cushions can look a little off and too large ones look cramped instead of cosy. Rough suggestion for cushions on large or long sofa is 40/45 cm by 40/45 cm. It will help to fill the space on the couch.


  • Square cushions give your back full support
  • Cylindrical or rectangular cushions help to prop up your neck and lower back
  • Floor cushions add style and are affordable extra seating


Add three to four tonal cushions with small clashing pillows. You can opt for one patterned pair with one solid pair. Large sofa looks great with 3 to 5 cushions but love seats and small sofa should only include a couple. Extra cushions can be scattered on your bed or piled in the store room.


Beautiful cushions can look unsightly and unattractive, if they are stuffed with low quality fillings. Fillings need to be of high quality feathers, which look lovely. If you are allergic to feather stuffing then opt for polyester or foam fillings, which is firm than feather stuffed ones.
