Different Cushion Combinations & Why They Work

One of the questions we get asked most often is how to create cushion combinations on your sofas. It can be tricky, and it's hard to know how to mix patterns and prints while still keeping everything cohesive. So here are some of our recent favourite cushion combinations that will look slick and stylish in any home...

THE PRINT, THE STRIPE & THE SIMPLE

Combining an organic print with a straight-line print allows the patterns to work together, then adding a simple textured cushion to the mix completes the look by giving it some dimension. This is one of our go-to combinations, and once you decide on your colour scheme, the rest tends to fall into place.

THE PRINT, THE PATTERN & THE GRAPHIC

This combination is a bit more complex, but it works just as well. Using differently patterned cushions in the same colour scheme creates an interesting juxtaposition that looks curated and unique. The key here is to play with different scales of patterns so that they have enough contrast. If you’re doing one cushion with a thin, minimal stripe, try pairing it with a larger geometric graphic and a smaller, repeating pattern.

THE SOLID & STRIPED (AND A THROW!)

This combination is gorgeous and can work in any space. Pairing a striped or patterned cushion with a simple solid one allows the pattern to stand out and draw your eye without too much visual clutter. When you add a throw to a patterned and solid combination, it creates a bit more interest, especially when the throw ties in with one of more of your pillows. In the above example, the stripe down the middle of the throw compliments the pattern in the navy pillow, but it’s different enough that it doesn’t feel too much.
