Although if you're buying a new sofa it often comes with some lovely matching pillows; there's some situations when we want yet more bling to once and for all cement that sofa as ours! Using cushions are a great way to spice up your sofa or bring it a little closer to its surroundings. We're loving using several unmatched patterned cushions arranged individually and mixed with the ones that came with the sofa to add a great lived in feel to any new sofa.Cushions aren't the only way to add a bit of life to your couch, whacking on a footstool is a great way to not only add luxury and comfort but also gives you a chance to go a little further with designing THE look too. Whether your sofa is in the living room, or, you've taken the double sofa plunge and popped one in another room; a footstool is a great way to add to the look and feel of luxury to something already amazingly comfy and luxurious! Another great way to add flexibility and fashion to an unchanging sofa is by using soft and cuddly sofa blankets, not just for old ladies and hippies there's some really beautiful handmade and knitted shawls; as well as more modern and posh ones (we're loving soft velvet versions) to go with any type of sofa these days, not to mention they're great on cold nights!
