Guest Groups: Say It with Cushions

I was planning a roundup of cushions of all styles but I kept coming across each these wonderful examples motivated by one of my favorite things: typography. But letters in decor are not just for layout nerds like me. Depending on the design you choose, they can add a playful touch to any style of room — whether it is rustic, traditional, retro or contemporary. — Alicia from Allergic Sort A

Beaufort Cushion – AUD 34.95

I’m a bit gaga over turn-of-the-century advertising posters, therefore it is no surprise that I was instantly taken by this stuffed version.

Oiseau Cusion – EUR 9

There are a ton of French ephemera-style cushions out there in the moment, and after some time they start looking a bit twee. This attractiveness, on the other hand, is so perfectly executed that it might just change my mind.


Spelling Cushions – $65

Taking the typography concept one step farther, these tweed cushions are actually from the shapes of letters. They are a exceptional way to denote the his-and-hers sides of the mattress, particularly for another anniversary present.
