Where to get really cool cushions?

I have had my sofa re-upholstered in a lovely slubby, faded dusty pink linen. I want some funky cushions to put on it to clash and funk it up a bit - unless it's 'dressed' properly it could look old ladyish instead of cool retro......

Can anyone recommend a cool cushion website emporium?

Best to find exactly the fabric(s) you want and have covers made up really. Do get feather cushion pads though, they always sit so much better.

Sit better both on the sofa and under the body wink

How much did it cost to get your sofa reupholstered if you don't mind me asking, mistressploppy?

I have a sofa which needs it and don't know where to start...

Great retro cushions on ebay

Tether - it was a family chum but his estimate (before mates' rates!) was £850 (fixed cover, new foam seat cushions, new fibre back cushions and feather scatter cushions x 2, armcaps)

Thanks for brilliant link, will get spending grin

Have a look on Folksy or Notonthehighstreet to get something a bit different and unique (and good prices).

TK Maxx often have nice cushions smile

agree with littlefriendsusan re TK Maxx, my mum got some lovely pink feather ones there recently for £8 each. They are really nice and look much more expensive.

They look better quality than my Next ones, which fell apart at the seams after one wash!

i do love tk maxx though, i spent a small fortune there last month blush

The Conran Shop has great ones but can be a biT pricey. It's website is good to look on for ideas though if it's above your budget.

Oohh - I saw the coolest cushions in the word and posted on here about them - I'll see if I can find the link.

Ooh, nannyj, I like PARIS TOKYO BLEU! Might have to get me one of those....

Have you had a look downstairs in The Hambledon, or in their furniture shop behind?

Good for inspiration, if not actually purchacing.

Good idea, Cranky

Like the site trixy

maybe some cushions here that would look quite contrasting and funky, the snow flake one is quite retro.
