How well do you know your cushions?

Cushions are lovely pieces of stuffed fabric that we casually throw on our couches and beds to brighten them up. With all the different shapes, sizes, fabrics, and embellishments, the varieties of pillows are endless.

Below are 4 common terms used when it comes to cushions:

1) Scatter Cushions

These are small, decorative pillows you can toss onto a chair, a couch, a bed – anywhere you need a splash of colour and design. They can be any shape and any size.

2) Piped

Piped cushions are also known as welting. This is a cushion that has a covered cord that is sewn into the seam as a decorative detail. It’s like an outline for the pillow.

3) Embellished

This covers any heavily decorated pillow. It can include fancy trims around the edges, such as beading and fringes, or dimensional adornments attached to the front of the pillow, like embroidery, beading, tassels, and/or buttons.

4) Bolster or Roll

This is a tube-shaped cushion. It is a classic type. They can be plain and simple or they can be decorated on the ends with gathers, tassels, buttons and ties.
