A few well-chosen cushions can make the difference between a bland scheme and a fabulous one, so we know you’ll be channeling your inner Kelly Hoppen and swatching up your space soon after checking out our favourite places to shop for cushions in Singapore.
And if it’s scatters and floor cushions for children’s rooms you’re looking for, or sun-kissed, weather-resistant prints for your outdoor seating area, we’ve got that covered, too.
Let the cushion splurge commence!
Heidi and Home
30 Ridout Road
You’ll want to buy all the cushions on Heidi Martin’s outside bench before you even step inside the showroom in her black-and-white house just behind Dempsey. Inspired by the block printing technique, regal paisley motifs, vibrant zig-zag patterns and classic Chinese designs make for luscious cushion splurging. Check out Heidi’s tablecloths, bedcovers and kaftans, too, but don’t just rock up on her doorstep – you need to make an appointment, please.
Satisfy your cushion habit without leaving your sun lounger with Korla Home’s brilliant service offering. Nose the sweet selection of fabrics – from graphic and geometric, to florals and stripes, try ’em on the digital cushion for size and style, pick plain or piped and pop your work of art in your cart. Little ones will love the double decker bus design – in fact, grown-ups will too we reckon.
Crate & Barrel
Ion Orchard, #04-21/22 and #03-25, 238801
Oh Crate & Barrel – can you do no wrong? For decorative cushions that’ll give your interiors a splash of colour to standout, weather-resistant pillows for your outdoor seating, we reckon you should bargain on leaving ION with more than just a few C&B shopping bags in your boot! (Note: You can always bring them out over a matter of days if your other half gets testy.)
Cuckoo Little Lifestyle Store
Blk 68, Dempsey Hill
If your tot’s playroom is more messy than magical, chaotic than charming, we think you’ll be tickled pink by new boutique on the Dempsey block, Cuckoo. Snatch stripey floor cushions and cutesy cerise scatters, and don’t even get us started on the peacock bedheads and chairs (that’s for another article!).
This lovely little online store makes it super easy to get that whole effortless mixey-matchey vibe happening on your sofa, which, in reality, requires a million Pinterest clicks to achieve. Choose from blue, orange, black or white, then pop a trio of scatters into your basket. Coordinating throws and blankets available, too. Ooh la la!
Singapore Trading Post
102F Pasir Panjang Rd, 02-04 Citilink Warehouse, 118530
Bring the outdoors in with palm leaf and frangipani print cushions from Singapore Trading Post. Too tropical? Other covers in the range include black and white zigzag prints and more classic floral designs.
Sime Darby Centre, 896 Dunearn Road, Level 2, Shop 2C, 589472
Feather-filled cushions covered in fabrics flitted in from across the globe. Think fabulous French stripes and lush Hawaiian tropicals, plus some sophisticated neutrals, fringing and piping thrown in there for good measure.
63 Hillview Avenue #09-08, Lam Soon Building, 669569
Want choice? You got it at Arete Culture’s new showroom, with over 1000 stunning cushions on display. You’ll find everything from prints and damask, to geometrics and velvets, grouped into different themes, such as Seascape, Naturals, Fiesta and Forest. Love.
501 Bukit Timah Road, #01-05A, Cluny Court, 259760
Nautical blues and whites never go out of style, so Bungalow 55’s cushion collection will always be bang on trend. Think classic stripes, ticking and preppy anchors for indoors and out in durable, easy-clean polypropylene. Lovely batik prints, too.
315 Outram Road, Tan Boon Liat Building, #10-01, 169074
Just like Grandma used to make, but so much more trendy in a heap of fab colours, Make Room’s hand-knitted cushions are made using cotton rope. There are poufs, rugs and shades in the collection too – if you happen to develop a sudden fetish with knitted homewares.
211 Henderson Road, 6475 2633
Get that well-travelled, eclectic look in your home with Galanga Living’s tribal cushions hand-stitched from old Moroccan rugs. We’re also smitten with their pink embroidered scatters and bolsters sourced from Thailand – perfect for adding a touch of girly nostalgia to any room.
Teak & Mahogany
100E Pasir Panjang Road Century Warehouse, #07-02/03/04, 118521
If it’s outdoor cushions you’re after, head to Teak & Mahogany. Their Sunbrella fabric range is available in over 400 colours and patterns and seven sizes, and you can customise ’em if you can’t find one that suits (though we doubt that’ll be necessary with such a huge range). Then there’s that 10-year warranty against fading and mildew – always handy when living in the tropics.
Heard of HipVan? Snoop this online store for everything from furniture to fashion, but it’s their cushions we’re here to talk about, and talk about them we shall. Find bold florals from PiP Studio, Bowerbird Home’s silk Ikat designs and quirky prints teens will love – it’s all in there and so much more.
