The Product: Acid yellow handmade cushions with coral tassel detail
Smart, beautifully hand-woven and with a decidedly global vibe. These handmade acid yellow cushions are the very essence of bohemian style with their quirky coral detailing and tassels.
It’s always a delight when we open a box of samples for our photoshoots. Often, designs were selected months previously. Chosen for looks and style? Yes. But also for quality, originality and a fascinating, authentic backstory. These hand-woven cushions from Samarkand Design do not disappoint. They are beautifully handmade by artisans in Nagaland, North-Eastern India.
We love the vibrant, ethnic feel of these cushions. Their quirky colour palette of acid yellow and coral with dark blue detailing for definition lends them to a relaxed, ‘Boho’ space.
The textural nature of the hand-woven finish would work well with plain velvet or linen-look upholstery. They would work on both traditional and contemporary furniture styles. Try Heals, Sofa.com or Arlo & Jacob for a good range of sofa silhouettes. In our photography, these cushions adorn an upholstered bench in a deep, dark velvet. Hence the textural contrast and zingy colours ensure the cushion leaps out against its backdrop.
Never feel you must dress your sofa with supplementary scatter cushions to match upholstery. Often, these are optional add-ons when buying a new sofa. Always, create an original look. Even more, assemble your own ‘cast of cushions’. Buy from different fabric houses. Create the perfect look and comfort level.
