My name is Vanessa and I’m addicted to cushions.
I lovingly stroke them in stores, look at them on line and happily mix and match them from room to room.
I have winter cushions and summer cushions; favourite cushions and sentimental cushions; inexpensive cushions and special, one off cushions; cushions with my boys’ names on them and cushions of varying shapes, sizes and textures.
I’m a cushion tragic.
We currently have five on our bed, at least eight on the sofa and a few other favourites are scattered around the house on various chairs. Even the boys have a couple on each of their beds along with their European pillows and name cushions.
So it wasn’t a difficult task to research today’s post. In fact, it was a pleasure.
As with fashion, the changing of season always sees a new batch of cushions hitting the stores. Below, I’ve curated twenty fab new season cushions, beginning at $5.
