Something you may not know about me….I’m a certified Interior Designer! Prior to entering the wonderful world of Mommyhood and The Paper Plume, I was a Commercial Interior Designer for over 10 years. I worked mostly on healthcare projects but also some aquatic centers, retail, corporate, religious, and university work along the way. This is part of the reason that from time to time you’ll find a dose of design/architecture here.
Today I’m excited to introduce you to Cushion Source. I discovered Cushion Source through Lindsay at A Design Story. She had a giveaway about a year ago and I won 2 beautiful custom pillows. I was so impressed with the quality that I called to order an additional pillow to match one of the ones that I had won. Cushion Source was happy to hear how much I liked them and asked if I would do a review of my own.
What makes Cushion Source different from home decor? Many things. First, customer service. It is so refreshing to call and speak to a live human being that cares what you have to say. When I called about my pillow initially my 2 year old was roaring like a dinosaur in the background. It was no big deal. Everyone was so pleasant!!
Regarding the product, what sticks out most to me is the ease of their custom ordering system. Below is an example of a throw pillow I was playing around with. You are able to customize so many things with your order – size, front and back fabric, filling, trim (or not) and more. They show exactly what your item will look like, even in a real life setting. There are hundreds of fabrics to choose from in their Fabric Gallery–take a look!. If you don’t see one you like, they also work with COMs (Custom Own Material) for a minimal charge, perfect when you are trying to match other fabrics in the room.
The quality of the pillows I have received was outstanding. The fabric has withstood the abuse of our family in our living room. This includes sticky fingers, baby spit up, and more. The filling has yet to show any let down and the seams are all holding well. For me, these are the tell tale signs of a quality product
Cushion Source also provides bench, window, seat, ottoman and chaise lounge cushions (among many other!), gorgeous indoor and outdoor draperies, outdoor umbrellas, tablecloths, placemats, and table runners. Coordinating linens, draperies, and upholstery has never been easier!
I was given the product to facilitate a review. All opinions are my own.
