Home decor cushion trends: how to style it like a pro

Cushions are often the unsung heroes of home decor, but at Margo & Plum they take centre stage offering not just comfort and a quick way to refresh a room, but an eclectic mix of textures, patterns, and colours that can transform your living space.

Whether you're aiming for cozy comfort or contemporary chic, selecting the right cushions can make all the difference. So to help you chose the right furnishings for your space, we’ve picked out three key trends that are dominating the interior design scene, offering you insights into how to incorporate them seamlessly into your home.

1) Luxe Velvet: Velvet cushions have made a triumphant return to the forefront of interior design, exuding opulence and sophistication. The lush texture and rich hues of velvet cushions add a touch of luxury to any space, whether it's a sumptuous aubergine or a rich orange. Opt for oversized velvet cushions to create a sense of extravagance, or mix and match different jewel tones for a vibrant yet elegant look.

Layering different textures is a great way to add depth and interest into your home and velvet cushions are a great for pairing with neutral tones for a bold contrast or with other vibrant cushions for a cohesive, stylish look. Velvet cushions effortlessly blend into both modern and traditional interiors, making them a versatile choice for any style-conscious homeowner.

Whether placed on a sofa, armchair, or bed, the Orange Velvet Cushion with Fringing brings a pop of colour and a touch of glamour to your home.

2) Boho-Chic Fringe: Embrace the free-spirited charm of bohemian décor with fringe cushions that exude effortless boho-chic vibes. Fringe cushions come in a variety of textures, from macramé to tassels, adding playful movement and tactile appeal to your sofa.

Earthy tones and natural materials such as cotton and jute are quintessential to the bohemian aesthetic and offer a perfect blend of texture, elegance, and versatility. Mix and match your fringe cushions with patterned textiles and eclectic accessories to create a laid-back yet curated look.

Botanical Prints: Bring the beauty of nature indoors with botanical print cushions that infuse your space with lush greenery and floral motifs. Botanical prints are a timeless trend that add a refreshing burst of colour and vitality to any room.

Choose cushions adorned with palm leaves, tropical flowers, or delicate ferns to create a vibrant focal point in your home. Pair botanical print cushions with natural materials like rattan furniture and bamboo accents to enhance the organic feel of your space, bringing the outdoors in with style and sophistication. But don’t be afraid to combine different patterns and push the boundaries a bit. Mix florals with geometrics or abstract designs with traditional prints - the key is to maintain a cohesive colour palette to ensure harmony in your home decor.

Recommended by Margo & Plum: Jungle Print Cushion

So thats our top picks from the Margo & Plum cushion collection, but here are a few final hints and tips to help you style your cushions like a pro:

Size and shape - mixing different sizes and shapes of cushions can create a dynamic and inviting arrangement. Start with larger cushions at the back and layer smaller ones in front. Use rectangular cushions for lumbar support and square cushions for a classic look.

Symmetry vs. asymmetry - symmetrical arrangements are ideal for a formal, balanced look, perfect for traditional settings. Place identical cushions on either side of a sofa or bed or for a more relaxed and eclectic feel, go for an asymmetrical arrangement by mixing different cushions in a seemingly random yet harmonious way.

Add a statement piece: include a statement cushion to serve as a focal point. This could be a cushion with a bold pattern, vibrant colour, or unique texture. Our stunning Colourful Cranes Cushion is an ideal standout piece that both draws attention and adds a touch of tropical elegance.

Seasonal swaps: change your cushions with the seasons to keep your decor fresh. Light, airy fabrics like linen or cotton are perfect for spring and summer, while rich velvets and cozy wools are ideal for autumn and winter. This not only updates the look of your space but also enhances comfort according to the season.

Coordinate with other decor elements: ensure your cushions coordinate with other decor elements in the room, such as throws, rugs, and artwork. This creates a cohesive and well-thought-out look. Match the colours and patterns of your cushions with your wall art to tie the room together.

Whether you’re looking to make a bold statement or add a subtle touch of elegance, cushions can be the home decor hero that you have been waiting for! Explore the latest cushion trends and products at Margo & Plum to find the perfect piece of plumped up loveliness for your home.
