Home : Simple Sofa Update with Cherry Blossom Cushion Covers

Cherry Blossom Scatter Black Cushion Covers

We wanted to update our tired looking sofa but couldn't afford a complete new sofa, so I settled on new cushion covers. Scatter back cushion covers were surprisingly difficult to get hold of, we tried Dunelm Mill, IKEA and even SCS where we originally bought our sofa. Places either didn't have the correct size, had horrible patterns or only sold the size with the cushion for a ridiculous price (around £60 per cushion in some places!). There may well be other more obvious places to look but I didn't know where so took to eBay, the place where you can buy absolutely anything.


The old feature cushions were quite dark, we've lightened our room a lot so lightening the sofas was the next obvious step. Annoyingly I forgot to take a before photo of the larger sofa but you should be able to get the gist of it from the smaller sofa pictured above.


The covers aren't as sturdy as our previous ones and seem to attract a lot more fluff but that aside I am really pleased with them. They have refreshed the look of the sofas and in turn the whole living room without costing the earth.
