In the living room : Cushions have their place on the sofa and on the armchairs, of course. But you can also buy floor cushions (yes, there are), to have in a corner of your room, or at the edge of the coffee table when you receive guests. If your window sills are wide enough, you can also have them here.
In a room : In a bedroom, cushions are ideal for dressing the bed when you are not in it. Remember to match them to your sheets so that there is not a mixture of colors or patterns too important; otherwise, the decoration could seem too busy!

Outdoors : If you are lucky enough to have a garden or a balcony, know that there are outdoor cushions. Rather practical, especially since outdoor furniture tends not to be very comfortable.
Some tips for matching your cushions with furniture
Are all these colors, shapes and patterns making you lose your mind? Don't panic, we're here to advise you. It is not that difficult to match your cushions with your furniture, there are only a few rules to follow. First of all, know that if you are afraid of making a mistake in taste, you can choose gray cushions; they agree with all the other colors, the hottest as well as the coldest. Then try to create a contrast with the colors; for example, if you have a light sofa, choose dark cushions, and vice versa. If your interior already has several colors, the ideal is for your cushions to recall one of the colors already present in the room. If your interior is sober enough, this is an opportunity to add color!
The rules to follow when matching cushions with each other
Matching cushions to your furniture is good, you know how to do it. Now we are going to give you some tips to match your cushions with each other. Indeed, even if each cushion goes well with the furniture individually, the whole may not be harmonious at all! We recommend that you do not mix different patterns together, unless they remain in the same tones. For example, you can combine two cushions, both black and white, but with different patterns. In the same way for the colors, one should not mix more than two different ones, except if they compose a monochrome. You can also completely mix different materials, while ensuring that the colors are the same.
