Ways to spruce up your living room with cushion covers


Textured Cushion Cover Arrangement for Loveseat Sofa

An effortless arrangement that builds from two large cushion covers placed on either side of the couch and an addition of front cushions on each side. This sophisticated and cohesive style will make your loveseat sofa look balanced and lively. You can make this interesting by playing with color, pattern and texture. Try using designer cushion covers overlapped on textured cushion covers. Keep in mind the designer cushion cover as per the design and color of your living room sofas.


Designer Cushion Cover Arrangement for Three Seater Sofa

There are two ways you can arrange your decorative cushions for a three-seater sofa, a balanced arrangement or an arrangement by trios.

As they say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Sometimes the standard approach is best. If you are someone who likes things organized and traditional, a balanced look would be best suited. For this, make sure you have plain cushion covers. On one side, place two cushions overlapping each other and repeat the same on the other corner and an additional feature designer cushion in the center that could be smaller in size or different in shape. Voila! You have a perfectly balanced look!

The purpose of a trio arrangement, while playing with different shapes and sizes of cushions, is to break the monotony. For this look try placing two different sizes of cushions overlapping each other and a different shape overlapping the smallest cushion in one corner of the sofa. Try adding a velvet or fur throw to make this arrangement more edgy!


Elegant Cushion Cover Arrangement for Sectional Sofa

One way to arrange a sectional sofa would be overlapping two cushions of different sizes on each side of the sofa and placing the same pair in the center with an additional cushion of a different shape. You may add a decorative cushion cover as the additional piece. This would give a balanced yet unique look to your sectional sofa.
To break the monotony, you could also have just one big plain cushion cover or textured cushion cover on one side of the sofa instead of the same pair of two on each side while keeping the rest of the arrangement the same. This could give an asymmetrical yet aesthetic look to your sectional sofa. Add a ball cushion to stand out and amp up your décor.
