Last weekend gave us all a much-needed dose of vitamin D and for many people the time to enjoy their garden. If you’re anything like us you’ll be willing the weather gods to shine for the upcoming bank holiday weekend. Meanwhile, it’s important to get ready for a summer spent outdoors by getting your garden furniture in order. Whether that’s by bringing it out of the shed, removing furniture covers or re-assembling, afterwards you may feel it’s still missing a final flourish. That vital last touch of creativity can help bring garden furniture arrangements into full bloom. Yes, a pretty bouquet of flowers placed in a vase on a garden table can definitely do the trick. However if it’s something more permanent and versatile that you’re looking for Bramblecrest cushions may just become your new favourite garden styling item. Today we take a quick delve into why these fabulous cushions are a popular decorative, and comforting, option for any garden seating.
What are the key benefits to garden scatter cushions?
There are many benefits in adding some garden pillows to your outdoor furniture. Here’s the rundown:
An Inviting Variation
Firstly, the visual impact that a cushion, or cushions, can have on a monotone sofa arrangement cannot be underestimated. We find placing a few bright or interesting pattern examples amongst seating instantly makes outdoor sofas or chairs more inviting. Also, texturally the different material and simple physical presence of these really help to positively define the space, making furniture more visually enticing.
Individual Designs Used Uniformly Create Appeal
There’s lots to adore about the humble Bramblecrest cushion; you’ll see below we’ve gone into more detail where we’ve picked our five favourites. But, in a general sense patterned and coloured outdoor cushions will add life and verve to any single tone garden furniture you have. Try several of the same pattern placed uniformly across a whole garden sofa set to really positively highlight the furniture they’re placed on. Alternatively, pairings look great too.
Functional and Versatile
As with Bramblecrest garden furniture, there’s a pleasing level of function inbuilt to their design. These are water-resistant outdoor cushions, a shower proofing system has been integrated into the covers, meaning these are entirely ready for outdoor spring and summer use. If caught in light rain or flash downpours the rain will bead off, for anything heavier just store them inside. In fact, why not make use of these garden pillows year-round and have them indoors too, they would especially suit a conservatory. Another fantastic feature is that when needing to clean the exterior simply remove the covers for easy washing and hang drying.
Lastly, they’re an ideal cosiness addition, helping boost the comfort levels that little bit more. Whilst they’re clearly not as thick as full seat cushions found in ranges such as the enduring Bramblecrest Monterey collection, at roughly 20cm width per cushion and when using several at a time the padding beneath can be plumped for precious additional seating pleasure.
Our Top 5 Bramblecrest Cushions for Outdoor Use
We leaf through our 5 favourite garden scatter cushions and highlight why we think they’ll glow in the garden this year.
Perhaps the boldest of all the options, this brilliant unapologetic design will embolden any garden seating. The zesty orange is offset with a cream brought together in an appealing chevron pattern. Pair with any yellow or orange florals, or similarly throws. This will be a sure way to breathe life into outdoor space.
Staying with the chevron theme this option will surely look fabulous on any Bramblecrest garden furniture but also most garden seating regardless of brand. That’s because of its appealing and versatile neutral tones. The chevron design helps keep it visually interesting and it will break up neutral colour blocking nicely.
Bold and beautiful, this is one of those garden pillows that aches to be used as a pair placed in front of a monotone cushion or used in sets on a garden seat, as seen here on the single cocoon from the Bramblecrest Monterey collection. The pleasing pattern will suit many gardens and works especially well against creams and light greys.
Sometimes keeping it simple is the best and most enduring choice. With the light blue Bramblecrest cushion the pleasing block colour and nautical tinged shade will lend itself well to those looking for uncomplicated plain sailing.
Unique, pleasant and lively all in one package – the Morrocan citrus Bramblecrest cushion is destined to be a favourite amongst many customers. With a culturally informed pattern making it memorable and timeless we think it represents the perfect colourful punctuation against any drab feeling garden seating arrangements.
