Styling With Different Cushion Sizes

Styling With Different Cushion Sizes

Cushions are a must-have for many reasons. Not only do they provide comfort, they are perfect for decorating and styling. Whether it’s adding colour, pattern, or texture, cushions are ideal for layering and creating an atmosphere that is cosy and visually appealing.

Available in three sizes, our cushions start from 40cm x 60cm (lumbar), to 50cm x 50cm (standard size) and 60cm x 60cm. In this guide, we will go through ways you can work these sizes together or individually to achieve a stylish look.

classic como

Made from premium European linen sourced from Italy and France, our Como cushions are a staple for any collection. With over 20 colourways to choose from, Como is the only cushion to offer each size.

Whether paired alone or with the other sizes, the 40cm x 60cm Lumbar is ideal for incorporating a different shape to your collection and is a must-have for lower back support when sitting on the sofa or chair.

The standard size of our cushions are 50cm x 50cm — the perfect size for styling on your bed and/or sofa. If you’re wanting to create a layered effect, our larger 60cm x 60cm size is also a great way to stack, adding a variety of shapes for a plush and cosy setting.

pair with pattern

While plains such as Como can be styled alone, pairing them with other textures such as bouclé (Alberto) or velvet (Ava) is a great way to add variety and satisfy your sense of touch with soft, plush finishes or something rich or refined.

To give the room a little personality, we recommend featuring patterned cushions alongside a plain to complement the overall style. Whether it’s a subtle or bold geometric, classic or playful stripe, a botanical floral for those who love nature, the sky is your limit when it comes to creating a theme.  


If you’re wanting to add an extra layer to your sofa or bed, try styling with a throw. Throws are simple yet effective and provide additional colour, pattern, and texture, as well as warmth — especially during the cooler, winter months.

Solano is a wonderful choice if you’re wanting subtle pattern — its beautiful herringbone design bringing sophistication — while Nevis is a lovely option for something toasty due to its pure wool composition.  

a plush paradise

For the ultimate luxury bedding setup, we recommend pairing any of our cushions with our Ravello range. Made from French Flax linen and aero finished for a soft, luxe look and feel, Ravello can be styled with any of our existing collections for a personalised touch.

From lumbar sizing, to something larger to snuggle into, creating your own plush paradise of pure comfort and sophisticated style is entirely possible with our ranges. Our Como and Vinnie ranges both offer this size, perfect for layering.

In terms of pillowcases, Ravello offers three sizes to suit your bed and needs. Sold as a pair, you can choose from Standard, King, or European. Similar to Como, you can also style these alone, or together for optimum relaxation and support.
