How many cushions for a 2 seater sofa?

We recommend using 2 to 4 cushions on a 2 seater sofa. Using 2 cushions creates a minimal look, 3 cushions creates a more modern style, while 4 cushions provides depth and balance to your sofa.

Using 2 cushions on a 2 seater sofa

Displaying a pair of cushions on your 2 seater sofa gives it a pared down look and is often a favourite for those who prefer a minimal way of decorating. The cushions can be placed at each end of the sofa or positioned towards the centre. You may select identical cushions to keep your decor scheme simple and elegant.

Using 4 cushions on a 2 seater sofa

If you wish for more cushions on your 2 seater sofa, then 4 cushions are perfect for adding more depth. These can be arranged by placing three cushions on one end — starting with a large cushion, then a adding a smaller one.

Alternatively, for 4 cushions on a 2 seater sofa, you may opt for two identical cushions. One pair of cushions in a larger size, and another pair of slightly smaller cushions. Placing one in front of the other.

How many cushions for a 3 seater sofa?

We recommend using 3 to 6 cushions for a 3 seater sofa. Using 3 cushions creates a pared down look, 4 cushions creates symmetry, while using 5 and 6 cushions creates a fuller look with opportunity to show off the texture and design.

Using 3 cushions on a 3 seater sofa

Create a simple pared down look with 3 cushions on a 3 seater sofa. The 3 cushions can be arranged the same way as the 2 seater, with 2 cushions on one end and a single cushion on the other end. You may opt for varied shapes and textures.

Using 5 cushions on a 3 seater sofa

Placing 5 cushions on your 3 seater sofa offers an aesthetic look without cluttering the area. Layering different textures, patterns, and colours keeps things lively and casual. For an attractive look, place a pair of cushions on both ends and a single cushion in the centre.

 

How many cushions for a corner sofa?

We recommend using 4 to 9 cushions on your corner sofa, however, this depends on the style of the sofa as they come in many sizes and lengths. Use 4 for a simple approach in the corners, use 6 for a similar layout with more depth, or try with 7 and 9 cushions to make it more cosy.

Using 4 cushions on a corner sofa

When placing 4 cushions on a corner sofa, you can choose one single large cushion at each end and 2 cushions in the middle. The cushions in the centre can be patterned to really bring the sofa to life. This arrangement is simple and requires little time to re-create when cleaning up.

Using 7 cushions on a corner sofa

When using 7 cushions on a corner sofa, it is best to choose a collection with  similar colours and patterns so that your sofa is not over-whelming. The middle of your sofa is the focac point so be sure to use a feature cushion here that pulls the whole collection together. When arranging, place 2 cushions at each end of the corner sofa and 3 in the centre.
