Cushions

The word cushion was first used sometime in the 14th century. It comes from a mixture of the Middle English, French and Vulgar Latin language.
 
The cushion as we know it today, is regarded as a soft bag of material, usually stuffed with wool, hair, feathers, polyester or other such materials. The normal cushion is used for sitting and kneeling upon, or to soften a hard seating place. Today the cushion is used for many reasons but the general use for this item is the traditional sofa cushion, or more stylish scatter cushion. Pillows are also referred to as cushions, which are then covered with pillow covers. The decorative cushion is ironically not for sitting on, as their function is to portray a more artistic look. These cushions have fancy cover material which is patterned with different styles.
 
In ancient times the cushion was a huge part of ancient pieces of furniture and was synonymous with opulence and wealth. One could find these soft items in palaces and great houses during the middle ages. They were often covered in leather and were generally very large. In France the opportunity to kneel on a cushion in church behind the king was harshly regulated and carefully guarded. Most Arab cultures still use the cushion as part of their tradition when sitting on the floor.
 
Mot cushion manufacturers will also offer other linen items like the pillow-case, the duvet, as well as the ‘inners’ for them. These manufacturers can also offer cushions made with different kinds of material in a number of styles and sizes.
