Decorative Pillows, Throw Pillows and Scatter Cushions
Buying cushions should be fun. All the thought and effort you’ve put into your colour schemes has paid off and you’re left with beautiful spaces throughout your home. You’ve purchased the linen, the quilt covers, the hand towels and the bathmats. Now, it’s time to add the finishing touch! Decorative pillows, throw pillows and scatter cushions are just some of the cushions you can purchase to be the icing on the cake that is your home.
KAS offers a huge range of cushion sizes, styles and colours to ensure you find the perfect cushions. However, with so many beautiful patterns and designs to choose from, how do you pick? We’ve put together some easy things to consider when buying cushions to help you make the right choice.
What is the Best Material and Texture for Scatter Cushions?
With plenty of rich textures and fabrics available, narrowing down what you will love is an easy way to choose cushions for your home. First consider their use, are they purely decorative pillows for your bed that you’ll remove each night? Or are they destined for the couch where guests and family are encouraged to snuggle up with them? If they’re purely decorative you can have as much fun with the texture as you like, choose options with bulky embroidery or beads and sequins to add detail to your space. If you’re looking for something soft to rest your head on in front of the television, stick to comfortable textures like cable knit, velvet cushions or linen cushions.
Another consideration when choosing cushion textures is climate and season. Cable knit cushions are a popular option during the colder winter months, while the cool feel and breathability that linen offers as a fabric makes it a smart choice throughout summer.
What Colour Cushions Should I Buy?
If the cushions are your finishing touch, you should already have a clear idea of the colour palette in your space. Take note of curtains, wall colour, furniture upholstery and bed linens to help guide your choice of cushions. Best practice is to opt for some simple cushions to form your base, before choosing a few decorative styles with patterns or details to sit on top without creating a clashing colour scheme.
Starting with base colours you love also allows you to simply update your feature cushions when you want a fresh look for your space. Try adding in brighter shades or bold designs to create a more contemporary feel, or introduce deep jewelled hues for a sophisticated, traditional look.
What Size Cushions Should I Buy?
Working with a range of different sized and shaped pillows creates a luxurious and opulent design. Similar to choosing colours, start with some standard square pillows as your base before layering in more unique sizes. Adding in longer rectangular cushions or smaller, unique ones towards the front brings depth to your cushion design that is hard to achieve using only one size of cushion.
How Many Cushions Should I Style?
While there’s no set rule for this, it can be wise to consider the rest of your space when deciding on the number of cushions to introduce. White surroundings make rooms look larger so you can opt for more pillows without creating a cluttered feeling. If you’re working with patterned upholstery and linens or darker wall colours, we recommend adopting a less is more approach.
Many small cushions create a detailed, busy look which can be inviting for your living spaces. For a more formal style in the bedroom, stick to an even number of cushions.
Remember, decorating with cushions should be fun and there’s no one right way to do it! Play with your options and mix and match regularly to freshen up the look of your rooms and breathe new life into your favourite spaces.

How do I measure the size of a cushion cover?
To measure a cushion cover, you will need to start by measuring the length and width of the cushion. Once you have these measurements, you will need to add an extra 5 cm to each measurement. This will allow for the seam allowance. This will give you the dimensions for a cover that will fit your cushion snugly. Our cushion size guide will help you make a decision easier.
