How Many Cushions?


I’m a huge fan of cushions. Big, small, linen, leather, on the sofa, on the bed….pretty much anywhere that I can justify having a cushion. For others though, cushions are a waste of time and just get in the way.

In a recent Houzz Australia poll ‘How many throw pillows are too many on the bed?’ opinion was divided with some Houzz readers saying that 1-3 throw pillows was too much for them, while others said they just couldn’t get enough. When it comes to cushions (and throws for that matter) there is no right or wrong, it really comes down to personal preference.

Read what some industry professionals including myself and Greg Natale have to say about how many throw pillows work for us in this Houzz Australia article: Throw Pillows: How Many is Too Many? Further proof that there is no right or wrong.

Once you’ve decided how many throw pillows are enough for you the next step is deciding how you would like to arrange them. My Houzz article ‘An Interior Designer’s Guide to Arranging Cushions‘ will help to point you in the right direction.
