When it comes to your bedroom cushion set-up you likely slot into one of three categories: you either opt for no cushions and keep things minimal, go wild with 43976* scatter cushions thrown together (*approximate figure) or you spend your lifetime chasing the hotel-esque perfectly placed matching pair.
I have roamed through all three cushion worlds and currently am stranded in the third. Which is what has lead me to create this round-up feature. Y’know, just in case anyone else is also looking to create some kind of fake hotel vibes at home, in lieu of actually staying in a hotel.
From the photos I’ve been stalking online, one thing is clear: the rectangle (or oblong) cushion cover is queen when it comes to the immaculately positioned pair of scatter cushions.
And thankfully, there’s plenty to shop online right now. From high street faves to cool independent brands we’ve only just discovered. Current trends include velvet (always), gingham, stripes, and ruffles.
So without further ado, these are the best rectangular cushion covers to instantly upgrade your bed set-up and make you feel like you’re sleeping somewhere at least 5% fancier than you did before you had them.
