At Heatherly, we don’t believe you can ever have too many cushions. Bringing warmth and comfort to any bedroom or living area, cushions are a must for every style from classic to contemporary.
But getting the combination just right can be harder than it looks; mixing different patterns, hues and sizes in a cohesive way is an artform.
There is no hard and fast rule on where to start. Sometimes it’s just a case of trial and error to achieve the ultimate balance.
All handcrafted by our highly skilled team of upholsterers in Melbourne, here are our top sellers and how we are loving seeing them styled for Summer ‘21.
Cushions not only make a space more comfortable, but also more functional.
During the past two years, our homes morphed into workplaces, classrooms, gyms and dine-in restaurants. All of us have spent more time at home than ever and become more conscious in how we utilise the space to make it adaptive and flexible.
Due to so many requests for custom made window seat cushions, we have now included these special cushions as part of our standard collection.

The perfect piece to add a custom-made accent to your bedroom or living space, this design is a multipurpose gem, adding versatility and adaptability to your living space. The styling possibilities are endless!
From buttery soft leather to bold prints and rich colours, we love seeing them styled back with our custom wooden benches in an accommodating entryway where you can easily shed outdoor layers or slip on your shoes.
They also make great use of space (and maximise your seating) on a window seat or kitchen nook, styled back with scatter cushions for extra comfort while in the bedroom, they bring contrast to a bed end, abounding in both texture and cosiness.
All our custom seat cushions are piped, include premium Dacron foam and are stocking wrapped for a plush finish.

Some might argue that cushions stacked on a bed really don’t serve any useful purpose other than looking good —they get removed from the bed before we even tuck ourselves in.
But a bed made is a day made. Starting and ending your day with elevated soft furnishings gives your bed a base of luxurious comfort. When artfully arranged, cushions are a powerful but subliminal enticement, beckoning us to get into bed – and rest.
As nesting became the norm for the past two years, stuffy stacks of perfectly styled, untouched decorative pillows have given way to soft and unfussy, for a luxurious, yet relaxed aesthetic. And if you think oh-so-strokable velvet is just for winter, think again.
Catching the light in just the right way, velvet brings a shimmer of opulence and a finishing touch to any bed, when styled right.
The more brushed and lived-in the better, so don’t forget to plump and “chop” your cushions in the centre with the side of your arm (like a karate chop). This leaves a relaxed indentation in the centre while also pushing the filling out to the corners for desirable fullness. It’s a neat little interior-styling hack but it only works with high-quality feather inserts (ours are 100% feather) as their shape is more easily manipulated than those with a synthetic fill.
Our velvet cushion collection comes in seventeen rich jewel tones, and two sizes, the larger 600 x 600 and 600 x 400. They are also fully washable in cold water, so no need to worry if there is an accidental spill of your morning coffee in bed.

If you have your own fabric that you would like custom-made into a cushion to compliment your unique space, you can also speak to our showroom team to facilitate custom designed cushions.
The perfect finishing touch to create a luxuriously layered bed, our new bolster cushion brings both contrast and comfort to your bedroom.
Expertly crafted in pure Dargo linen, felt or the richly tactile (and on-trend) boucle, the contemporary rounded shape adds dimension and interest to any bed spread, from bold prints and fuzzy blankets to minimalist linens in muted shades.

Of course, the right pillow pairing and styling is key to achieving a polished finish and we see the bolster cushion as the perfect centrepiece for your bed. To instantly update and transform the look and feel of a bedroom, we suggest pairing it back with our bespoke upholstered bed heads and styled front and centre — layered in front your larger cushions including European cushions and plush pillows. The lumbar shape also lends itself as the perfect backrest for indulging in a book at bedtime.
We also love the bolster styled solo on an occasional chair or even adding extra comfort and tactility to a daybed or window seat.
The bolster cushion dimensions are 600mm long x 200mm diameter and it is available in one size only and filled with foam inserts.
