Like when you put together your look by balancing plain colors as a base and eye-catching designs and colors in combination, when thinking about dressing your sofa use the same approach to create harmony.

How to place the cushions on the sofa?

It all depends on the size and shape of your sofa.
If you follow the rule of symmetry, you will place the furniture cushions starting from the armrests, in groups of two or three inwards, completing in the middle of the sofa with a group of one or two cushions.

If you prefer a more minimal decoration do not place the group cushions in the middle of the sofa.
If on the contrary, you follow the rule of asymmetry, perfect for island or small sofas, the suggestion is to create the composition with the cushions only on one side, By placing them in groups of three to five for a peninsula sofa and in groups of two or three for a smaller sofa.

For the peninsula sofa, the pillow set can also include large ones.

The quality of the filling is fundamental both for the look and for your comfort. Aesthetically, the cushion must appear full and puffy, but at the same time it must support and be comfortable.

Now your sofa will be the star of your living room, a beautiful decorative occasion, with the color palette you prefer!
