Cushions and Throws are jewellery for your couch

Category: home

Couches, while comfy, can often be conducive to clutter. They start out crisp and clean, but slowly begin to consume almost everything in their path. Your old socks, your cat’s excess fur – even the wayward crumbs from your late-night snack seem to find a home in the crevasses of your couch.


This stops today. Instead of leaving the furniture to fester, why not dare to decorate? Much like a selection of jewels carefully paired with your prized pumps, the simple addition of a few choice items can totally transform your couch from storage space to statement piece in seconds. 

We tested our theory with a few of our favourite homewares in order to demonstrate exactly how it’s done. 

As always, it’s important to start with a colour scheme. Whether you opt for soft neutrals or a more monochromatic palette, sticking to your scheme sets you up for a sure-fire success.

Sort through the infinite options and aim to select some chic cushions (that conform to your core colours, of course), to intersperse along the couch in no particular order. It’s important not to crowd the space with too many pieces. When it comes to style, simplicity is here to stay.

Tie it all together it with a similar style throw. Play with textures and tones and top it off by draping your throw over the arm of the couch. Not only will this bring an added element of aesthetic appeal, it’s perfect for our whimsical winter weather.

Enjoy a much-improved, incredibly stylish space all thanks to these easy innovations.
