The Coolest Cushions - Top 10

Need a simple, quick way to inject a little more personality into an indoor or outdoor space? Cushions! They're not only affordable, but these days they're a bit like mini artworks - available in all sorts of awesome colours and patterns.  

We went Internet 'window shopping' for cushions that would look stylish on one of our bean bag chairs or bean bag loungers. Here's our Top 10, from some of the best online design boutiques.

 

1. These Plus cushions by Cotton & Flax are silkscreened by hand in very small batches, so when you own one, you're owning close to one of a kind. The delicate plus pattern makes the perfect accent for your sofa, designer chair... or beanbag! Available from online homewares store LET LIV.


2. Houndstooth is sophisticated and timeless. This chic cushion would look uber stylish on one of our bean bag chairsAvailable from the Australian branch of Citta Design.

3. If bold and graphic is more your style, the X cushion (from Australian designers Pony Rider) will delight. We like the grey as it's slightly more understated, but the X cushion comes in a range of colours. Available from Pony Rider. 

 

4. You know what's totally on-trend for 2014? Round cushions. And this vintage-inspired, pleated design from Collected is just gorgeous. We love it in the vibrant teal, but it also comes in yellow, pink, tangerine or turquoise... get yourself a couple!

 

5. Thanks, Country Road, for consistently delivering beautiful basics. This simple yellow cushion will bring a dash of sun and fun to any space. 

 

6. Inspired by the city of London, this harlequin design is both quite classic and also very on-trend, thanks to its bold geometrics. From Citta Design.

 

7 & 8. Freedom Furniture (NZ & Australia) now has a wonderful variety of cushions in every style and colour you could imagine. We love the simple striped Highlands cushion, or - for something really fun and modern - the neon polka-dotted 'Pops' cushion (only $19.95!).

 

9. Hot Pink? Heck yes! This is the 'Penny Round' cushion, from in-demand Australian designer Rachel Castle. Available at the Castle website.

 

10. Also from Castle, this soft plush velvet cushion. The charcoal colour is oh-so-chic, but the pom-poms add a dash of fun!
