I love cushions. Cushions and teaspoons and butter knives. But mostly, cushions. And it’s not always easy to find a good, squishy, sink-into-the-sofa cushion with a stonking design without forking out lots of lolly. So, you can understand my whoops of delight when I found this mazin squishy-is-my-middle-name Decker cushion from MADE.
I think the solider print manages to appeal to both grown ups and kiddiwinks. It looks gorgeous in my cosy living room and is my new go-to cushion for when I need to get horizontal to watch The Great British Sewing Bee (am I the ONLY ONE watching this that has no idea what they’re all talking about?!) as not only is it extremely comfy, it’s also BIG (50cm x 50cm.) Likewise, the print would work brilliantly in a nursery for a little nipper.
If you haven’t heard of MADE, they are a bit swish and clever. They do things differently. They believe the high street and expensive designer brands give consumers a raw deal. They know that everyone in the retail process takes a cut, from agents to landlords and we – the discerning customer – pay for that cut. (Rahhhh!! Booooo Hissss!!) So MADE are making a stand. They are taking on the high street to offer us original furniture design (and cushions!) at affordable prices. Which is why my gorgeous Decker Cushion costs £39, instead of the £75 you’d expect to pay on the high street for the same thing.
I have had so many compliments on my cushion, I’ve had to install a tracking device, for fear of someone stuffing it up their jumper and legging it.
You know who you are.
