Floor Pillows And Cushions: Inspirations That Exude Class And Comfort

There are some aspects of décor and furnishing that are often overlooked. Floor pillows and cushions do not come to mind instantly when we think about beautiful interiors and stylish homes. Yet these simple and convenient additions can often make a huge difference in the overall look and feel of a room. Since many home owners already use an array of throw pillows to brighten their home, matching floor pillows are a great way to complete the contemporary style with a hint of color and drama.

From the artistic to the eclectic and modern to minimalistic, floor pillows can add the much sought after it factor to your interiors! Here are some amazing modern ideas that will get you started.

Extra Seating Space in an Instant

Stylish floor cushions are a great idea for small apartments and living rooms that are short on leg room. Most ottomans and other seating options that are coupled with the couch often take up loads of room and tend to stick around as ‘permanent fixtures’. We are less likely to move them around and hence they take up unnecessary space even when not in use. Floor pillows offer the perfect solution in this regard. You can add a bunch of these gleeful delights when you need additional seating space and simply hide them away when they are not in use.

Many designs of floor pillows can be stacked and tucked away with ease. This helps keep your home a lot more orderly. Even for those with large living rooms, the visual of elegantly spread floor cushions brings a relaxed and soothing vibe. They are usually far more affordable than fancy chairs and ottomans and you also have the convenience of using them in several different rooms when needed.

Create a Colorful Setting

Many of the current homes tend to employ a neutral or muted color scheme. This has pretty much led to an increased interest in the use of accent colors. A dash of red or a hint of green here and there surely makes a home far more exciting. Floor pillows often bring in the same effect. Available in a multitude of patterns, prints, tufted versions and trendy hues, floor cushions can bring a space alive in an instant. The different shapes of these pillows and at times the interesting motif (which can range from simple stripes to cute animals) further adds a sense of novelty and excitement.

Sophistication Coupled With Ergonomics

Floor pillows and cushions take the comfort and the cool factor of a bean bag and couple it with panache and class. This is exactly why they seem to bring in plenty of playfulness even while preserving and accentuating the elegance of a room. Since they are not hard to move around, you can simply stash them away whenever they are not in use. You can use a combination of floor pillows, alter colors and change patterns to keep up with the current design trends. For those who are afraid to try out new accent colors, both floor cushions and throw pillows are a solution from the interior design heaven!
