Sahco produces some absolutely stunning fabrics in a luxurious, contemporary style. Their current home collection maintains every bit of this glamour and has us jumping for joy over every single product. As you know we love a good cushion at Angel + Blume but Sahco cushions are something special and the detailing that goes into each design requires our undivided attention. The cushion designs by Sahco are definitely something to have a good look at if you’re thinking of adorning your home in some new, plush accessories so we thought we’d share some of our absolute favourites with you.

These Tosca cushions are beautifully crafted by ruched silk, and contrasting piping. The colourways are snappy and vibrant and are the ideal finishing touch to add a pop of colour to a smart, contemporary interior.

In the centre of this beautiful shot are the texturally marvellous Mushroom cushions. There has been a tremendous amount of consideration taken into the design; their leather surface has been precisely sliced to create beautiful, playful gills that resemble, you guessed it, the underbelly of a mushroom! If you have the urge to give a room a bit of textural sass, these are a great way to indulge this.

Fake fur can have a cool, ultra-sleek edge to it when it’s incorporated into an interesting and creative design. The Zobel cushion uses fake fur in a ribbed design, with small lines of sequin hidden between each strip of fur. It’s the perfect cushion to inject a little fun and playfulness into scatter cushion selection or liven up some armchairs in a study.

One of my favourite designs from Sahco’s collection is the Linum cushion. The design is a masterclass of subtle sophistication, the main face of the cushion is a beautiful block colour, while around the seam there is a splash of contrasting colour that catches your eye. It’s simple but so very effective.

The Cosmo cushions are also an intriguing design, their pattern is perhaps best described as a freehand geometric style, where both precision and fluidity have been partnered together to control the outcome. The smocking technique produces a three-dimensional effect, which creates gorgeous dips and grooves.

If you’re looking for cushions that are not only aesthetically lovely, but also have a wonderful, individual textural elements to them, then head over to Sahco for some stunning designs, colours and styles.

Inspired by the Chelsea Flower show which opens this week, and by the glorious sunny weekend we have just enjoyed, I can’t resist bringing you some floral interior inspiration. I love the great outdoors but in truth, these florals are much more my line of country – no weeds, no wilting, no hay fever and are still in full bloom in the winter – perfect!
