REVIEW AND COMPETITION: The Cushion Union
I was asked to review some products for The Cushion Union recently, which I was very happy to do as they have some truly awesome designs! The Cushion Union is a relatively new business, selling high quality cushions, with contemporary (and darn funky!) designs.
They do not supply their wares to any other website, so The Cushion Union Shop is literally the only place to get these high end designs. If you like kitsch, you’ll love them. Vintage? They got it. Something cutesy for the kids? Come on in. Definitely worth having a look I would say.
All the designs are printed and applied by hand on to 100% natural, unbleached cotton cover, with a polyester cushion pad inside. The Cushion Union is currently having a sale, so each cushion is £29.99 instead of £39.99 and this includes delivery. I was sent three of their cushions to have a good test and I have to say the quality is excellent. The unbleached cotton means that the cushions have a nice, off white and slightly uneven feel to them, although as you can see from my photos this doesn’t show up from a distance. The cushion pad that they are supplied with is very squidgy and comfortable, in fact I spent this afternoon testing them out on my office chair and I can confirm that they give an extremely comfortable edge to even the most dull office chair like mine. I imagine on my sofa they would be more blissful, but I’m too lazy to take them home on The Tank at the moment.
The quality of the cushion cover’s stitching is great. The three main seams are held together with an interlocked edge inside, and there is a neat, matching stitch to hold the zip in place. I am very confident that these would last well in any household. The designs are bright, bold and of robust quality without looking tacky or contrived. They are machine washable and will stand up to all sorts of punishment.
As you can see from my pictures, the images on the website really are what you can expect to get on your cushion when you receive it. This cutesy toy deer design is adorable. I would imagine its aimed at little girls and this would add a really nice touch to a little girl’s bedroom decor, but personally I know a lot of, shall we say, more mature girlies, who would be more than happy to receive this as a gift and have it take pride of place in their living rooms!!
I also had a looksee at the cheese plant leaf cushion and the retro telephone design, which is also on The Cushion Union logo. These are perhaps more adult friendly designed, but still with a real feel of kitsch cool about them. I can just imagine the cheese plant leaf design in a bright, airy conservatory. The vintage telephone is just so cool that it would fit just about anywhere – lounge, bedroom, any room where cushions are required (which is just about anywhere in the house if you ask me – I am a bit of a cushion addict!
So, that’s my thoughts – I will happily award 10 out of 10 Extreme Points for these products. The quality is there and the designs are unique and desireable. And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for… The chance to win a Cushion Union cushion of your very own!! They have kindly offered to provide a cushion and a goodie bag to three lucky winners. Get entering on the Rafflecopter widget below, and good luck!
