get to know: our best-selling Meridian cushions.

There’s no denying that we’re cushion nerds, and proud of it. Our entire cushion collection has been designed with love, care and attention - to guarantee a quality and presence that you simply won’t find anywhere else. Not that we’re biased, but we adore our Meridian cushions and we think you’ll love them too. Which is why we’ve created this handy guide so you can get to know more about our most popular velvet cushions.

Let us introduce you to our Meridian cushions. A range of timeless velvet cushions that will make themselves right at home on your sofa. They are generously sized and are an unbelievably comfortable choice of cushion.

The Meridian cushion is part of our Paoletti range. A sophisticated collection varying from classic to contemporary in design but never compromising on quality. As a brand, it perfectly embodies luxury for the home and celebrates timeless style. And our Meridian cushion is no exception, it is an incredibly versatile choice which will complement a variety of existing décor styles. 

Let us go over some of the features of our super popular velvet cushions..

Firstly they are made from the most sumptuously soft velvet fabric both front and back, we can guarantee you won’t find any softer velvet cushions than these. They are available in one size, measuring a generous 55 x 55cm. The larger the cushion, the more comfortable, right?

They feature a stunning velvet piped trim in a complementary (or contrast) colour. This little pop for the trim really makes these cushions, and as we have so many colourways available you’re bound to find one to suit your interior. They have a discreet concealed zip closure which ensures that your cushion inner stays comfortably in place.

Most of our cushions are sold with a cushion inner of your choice. Whether you prefer perfectly plump polyester filling or luxurious duck feathers, they both create an unbeatable soft and comfortable large cushion. If you want to buy just the cushion cover, you can also source your own cushion inner. We advise reading our cushion guide to ensure you use the right size inner depending on how plump you would like your cushion to be.

And finally, no Paoletti cushion is complete without our signature woven label which is expertly sewn into the seam - perfect!

With over 30 rich colour combinations available, it’s no wonder that our Meridian cushions are a popular choice of cushion. 

You don’t have to worry about making the wrong choice with our Meridian cushions, they come in a wide range of tasteful colours. The stunning colour combinations of the velvet and the piped trim have been carefully thought about by our talented team of designers, so you don’t have to over think your choice. Just pick your favourite - et voila!

Care Instructions
Our Meridian cushions are hardwearing and are super easy to care for. If you look after these cushions, they will look great for years to come.

Made from 100% polyester, these cushions don’t stain easily. The Meridian cushion covers are machine washable. Just simply open up the concealed zipper, remove the cushion inner and place it in the washer. We always advise checking the care label before washing to be on the safe side.

These cushion covers are also suitable for tumble dryers and iron appropriate. We advise checking the settings of both your tumble dryer and iron before use.

How to style
So by now you should have a good idea of what to expect from our popular Meridian cushions. Your next question might be “but how do I style them?”, so let us give you a few helpful tips to give you the confidence to style your new Meridian cushions.

These cushions are suitable for most rooms in the home. In fact, we can't think of a place that wouldn't be suitable for them. Whether you want them for your bed or your sofa, our suggestions stay the same. The great features of these cushions are that they are generously sized and the colours are gorgeous.

As the Meridian cushions are completely plain in design, you can use them alongside a selection of your favourite patterned cushions. By mixing the patterned and plain cushions together, the pattern designs will stand out and look balanced. To pick which colour Meridian cushion will go with your patterned cushions, choose your favourite colour from within the pattern and pick a tonally similar Meridian.

Another way you can use the Meridian cushions is to place them decoratively on your bed. As they are plain, they will look great with most duvet cover sets. You could pair the Meridian cushions with bold patterns or perhaps a textured duvet cover set. Again, the plain design of the cushions will complement a textured or patterned duvet set. If you decide this is how you would like to style your Meridian cushions, don’t forget to chop down the middle of the cushion to style like an interior designer!

Another way you could style your cushions is focusing on the size combinations of your cushions. As the Meridians are very generously sized, you could layer the cushions with the largest at the back and smaller ones in front. This could be perfect for either on the sofa or on the bed, don’t forget to mix and match the colours and patterns to add some depth to your accessories.

Happy styling!
