You can choose a fabric, choose your shape and size cushion and choose whether you want piping or a plain edge and it will be custom made for you.
Before you design your cushion, we recommend that you read and follow our tips for:
How to Design Your Custom Cushion

Step 2 - Choose your fabric. Select one of our base cloths for printing on.
Step 3 - Choose the Size of your cushion, and whether you want a piped or plain edge.
Step 4 - Select the exact colour you are after. As you click on each colour the cushion colour will change so you can see the colour you are ordering. If in doubt, please request a fabric sample of the design and colour first by visiting the Fabrics page.

How to Choose the Perfect Piping
Many of our customers tell us they love a piped cushion as it looks more sophisticated than a plain edge. If you are one of those people, then here's how to create the perfect piping for your cushion.
We offer you the choice of having piping in the same fabric as the cushion cover or any of our Perfectly Plain Colours.
Here's what that looks like.....
Self-Piping means the cushion cover will be piped in the same fabric as the cover. This gives the cushion the polish of a piped finish but it blends in with the main cushion fabric so it does not stand out.
Soft Contrast Piping is when you choose a Perfectly Plain colour that is already used in the main fabric design. This piping will stand out from the main cushion fabric, but in a soft and subtle way.
Strong Contrast Piping is when you choose a Perfectly Plain colour that is a strong or contrasting tone or colour to what is used in the main cushion fabric.
The white piping is in strong contrast to the navy blue. Equally Raspberry Pink or Emerald Green would also make a strong contrast.
Benefits of a custom cushion
So why go to the trouble of designing your own cushion? Well, there are many advantages to being your own designer. Here's why a custom cushion is superior to a store bought.
With a custom cushion you will get:
- To choose the design or pattern you want.
- The ability to choose the colour piping you want.
- You can create a co-ordinated collection where the colours and patterns all mix and match.
- The right size cushion size. Yes there are other sizes, but the sizes we offer work together and are the most popular choice in most circumstances.
- You will have something different and a bit special to anybody else. Your cushion is not mass produced.
- Your cushion is handmade with love and care in Australia/New Zealand
- You will have a beautiful natural cotton canvas or Cotton/Linen furnishing weight fabric that feels good to touch - like really good.
- Your fabric design is 100% original and not available anywhere else but here, meaning your house is more individual and not just a product of mass production.
Here's what you need to know and understand about custom made cushions:
- They take time to make. That's it - and good things come to those who are prepared to wait.
