“ Brand: Homebase / Type: Cushion „
My mum has had one of these cushions on her sofa for several years and before I moved out I would always use it rather than any other cushion. Whilst browsing around my local Homebase one day I spotted the cushions and decided to treat myself to one.
The only packaging the cushion came in was a clear plastic bag however this was perfectly adequate and kept the cushion clean.
The Large Chenille cushion is made from a chenille material, its very soft and has a lovely tactile texture on the front, the back is just a plain material. It measures 50 x 50 cm's so its a nice large cushion but not too large to have on a sofa or chair. The pad inside is made from 100% polyester and the cushion cover is 70% cotton and 30% viscose. The cover is removable with a zip across the back in the same colour as the cushion making it blend in nicely.
The washing instructions are given as dry clean only however I know from my mum that they wash perfectly well on a delicate setting in the machine.
I bought my cushion in black, it is also available in red, raspberry, mocha, blue, pearl, taupe, and copper, so there's one to suit most colour schemes. The cushion cost me just £9. 99 which I consider to be a good price.
I've been really pleased with my Large Chenille cushion, I use it mainly on the bed if I'm snatching an hour with my book while Jayden has his nap or if I'm reading to him we sometimes use this so we can both lay on the same cushion, he seems to like this. I find it really comfortable for my head, neck and shoulders.
I have found that after a while the padding is starting to flatten slightly but for me personally this hasn't been a problem. I suppose if this was bought to use as a floor cushion then it would probably get less comfortable over time although it might be alright for a small child to use on the floor.
The cushion is well made with all the seams being straight and remaining secure. If you are looking for a nice large cushion then I can definitely recommend this one. I've certainly had my moneys worth since I've had it.
