If you’re on the lookout for that extra something-something to make your house truly a home, cushions or pillows or whatever you choose to call them for your bed or sofa might be a good starting point. And because you are familiar with what Crate & Barrel and IKEA already offer, here are 6 designer cushions from 3 designer brands your heart will definitely desire.
For something truly classic, look no further than Hermès, the luxury purveyor of goods ranging from bags to RTW and yes, even home furnishings, with this pair from their Avalon range. There’s the 100% cashmere handwoven Avalon Terre d’H Pillow (SGD1350) which measures 40 cm by 40 cm. Alternatively, go slightly bigger (50 cm by 50 cm) with the classic Avalon III Pillow (SGD800) which comes with 4 signature H icons at the corners of a checked pattern.
Then there are the opulent baroque printed cushions from Versace. Choose between the Le Grand Dome Baroque Cushion (SGD660) that comes in a lush cotton velvet, or the Le Vase Baroque Cushion (SGD580) which comes with a vase flanked by two Medusa heads. Available exclusively at Versace’s boutique at Marina Bay Sands, it is the only boutique in Singapore that carries pieces from their home collection.
Last, but by no means least, are these knotted tassel trim cushions from Gucci. Available in a wide variety of designs, the ones that fans will lap up the most will be the needlepoint cushion with the adorable teddy bear and the velvet cushion that comes with tiger embroidery. Priced at SGD2010 each, they are also now available at Gucci boutiques in Singapore.
