There are many ways to decorate with cushions and textiles. Mix different patterns, colours and sizes. By using an uneven number of cushions and avoiding to use several with the same print, the expression becomes more vibrant and dynamic. You can also emphasize a colour in a specific print by adding plain-coloured textiles and cushions in the same colour tone. Here follows four inspiring ways to combine cushions in the spirit of Svenskt Tenn.
When choosing cushions in different colours and prints, keep in mind that they do not need to match each other perfectly. The contrasts are what make the expression unique, and by focusing primarily on your personal style and taste, the result will be both beautiful and harmonious.
Focusing on just one colour that you like can also create a harmonious expression. Add contrast with distinct, black and white motifs. Fornasetti's characteristic cushions are examples of graphic designs that can lift and emphasize the sober colours.
Black as the night, green as the grass and blue as the sky. By combining prints in strong colours, and upholstering your sofa in a bold textile, you can create a seating area that stands out and draws eyes to it.
Cushions can also be a way to emphasize the eclecticism in an interior. When mixing materials such as rattan, iron, wood and textile, the different prints that you choose also add to the beautiful contrast that characterizes the whole.
