Wonderfully woolly, sassy and sequinned or pretty and playful – cushions are autumn’s hottest accessory and we’re going crazy for them this season.

Whether you’re searching for a subtle touch to your sofa or really want to liven up your living room, cushions are a great way to add that little extra something to your favourite interior spaces.

The advantage of picking such pieces is that you can let your heart override your head – choose cushions that represent your personality and don’t be afraid to look for designs that aren’t necessarily in keeping with the overall style of your home.

The Mr and Mrs Cushions from Barker and Stonehouse are a fun example of this trend.  Made from 100% silk, with a feather and down fill, they feature matching his and her contemporary cartoon faces with a stylish neutral colour palette.

These fabulous pieces will provide the perfect finishing touch to your bedspread and also make wonderful wedding gifts – even more wonderful if they’re for you!

If soft and simple is more your style then the Chalet Skye Check range of cushions is the perfect partner to cosy up to on those cold winter nights.

Inspired by the warmth and comfort of lavish ski lodges, this collection is made from 100% Merino lambswool and is filled with duck feathers for the ultimate in Nordic luxe.

And just because they feature a check pattern, don’t assume that you need to position them on plain pieces of furniture to avoid colours and designs clashing.

Mixing and matching patterns and textures can look really great if your keep the colour palette complementary. For example the Harborough Accent Chair from Barker and Stonehouse with its natural, caramel and duck egg checks would look great draped in the Skye Check Throw and accompanied by the Skye Check Cushion in Aqua.

Design and manufactured in Britain, the Skye Check range is made from 100% Shetland wool so you are guaranteed exceptional, long-lasting quality.

If you’re looking for something a little special to spruce up your kids rooms, then the Marionette collection will put a smile on your face as well as theirs.

Designed by talented Norwegian design duo Darling Clementine the super cute cushions feature a range of hand printed characters including Mr Frank Fox, Aristo Katt, Posey the Panda and Elle the Elephant.

Made in 100% organic cotton with down filling, these quirky accessories are extra soft and cuddly for kids, and are stylish enough to stand alone or all-together.
