CHOOSING FABRICS

Our ready-made cushions are matched and ready to take home, so choosing what works is a case of falling for the cushion –simply liking the feel of the fabric, the impact of the colours and knowing you will love looking at it in your home.

If you are looking for a fabric to make an exact colour match to curtains, a carpet or a sofa, it is a good idea to bring along a photo, swatch of material or paint colour reference with you to our Pop Up.  If you are still uncertain about a colour, we will give you a swatch to take home.  We also offer an “email a swatch” service to customers who cannot attend our Pop Up Shops.

In Irish homes, colour is very important as we live a large part of the year starved of sunlight.  Our cushions are made in both warm and strong colours, which can bring a nice “pop” of colour into a home.

For a casual feel, mixing and matching fabrics such as linens and cottons brings ‘freshness’ to a room. For a more formal room, texture is important so we would recommend silks, wools or velvets.

Botanicals are a great favourite again this year- coming into the summer it’s nice to add floral patterned cushions to a room or conservatory, to coincide with the arrival of flowers in the garden.
