Oriental cushions for all homes and interiors

One of the most popular types of oriental cushions is the silk cushion. Silk is a luxurious material that has been used for centuries in the production of textiles. Silk cushions are typically made from high-quality silk fabric and are adorned with intricate patterns and designs. They are available in a variety of colours, from bold and bright to soft and muted, making it easy to find one that complements your decor. Silk cushions are perfect for adding a touch of elegance to your living room or bedroom.

Another type of oriental cushion is the embroidered cushion. Embroidered cushions are typically made from cotton or silk fabric and feature intricate embroidery patterns. These patterns often depict traditional scenes from Asian culture, such as dragons, flowers, and landscapes. Embroidered cushions come in a variety of shades, ranging from vibrant hues through to neutral tones, making it easy to find one that complements your decor. They are perfect for adding a pop of colour and texture to your living space.

In addition to silk and embroidered cushions, there are also cushions made from other materials such as brocade, velvet, and tapestry. Brocade cushions are typically made from a combination of silk and metallic threads, creating a stunning shimmer effect. Velvet cushions are soft and luxurious, adding a cosy feel to any room. Tapestry cushions are made from woven fabric and often feature traditional designs such as floral patterns or scenes from nature.

How to include oriental cushions in contemporary living spaces

When it comes to incorporating oriental cushions into contemporary interiors, there are a few key tips to keep in mind. The first is to choose cushions that complement your existing decor. If you have a neutral colour scheme, opt for cushions in bold colours to add a pop of colour to your living space. If you already have bold colours in your decor, choose cushions in muted tones to balance out the space.

Another tip is to mix and match different types of oriental cushions. Don't be afraid to combine silk, embroidered, and other types of cushions to create a unique look. You could also mix and match different sizes and shapes of cushions to create a luxurious, layered look.

When it comes to arranging your oriental cushions, there are several stylish ways to create maximum impact. You can place them on a sofa or chair to add extra comfort and style, or place them on the floor to create a cosy seating area. If you have a window seat or bench, consider placing cushions there for extra comfort and style.
