“ Brand: Wilkinson / Type: Cushion „
I recently bought a new sofa from DFS and whilst it was lovely, the pillows that they came with instore were not really to my taste and also costs £38 each! Not my kind of bargain, so being a savvy little shopper and having some Love2Shop vouchers I headed to Wilko to get some homeware goodies. I spotted these lovely little cushions and decided they had to be mine :)
Our sofa is "charcoal" (aka mixture of navy/dark grey) and so these cushions are a really nice complimentary feature. They are a bit of a bronzey-greyish colour, with silver, turquoise and blueish spots dotted across for a really nice effect. The cushions are square, coming in at 43x43cm so not overly large, but enough for me to lay my head to rest on, or position behind my back for some extra padding. There is quite enough pillow fluff inside which is good but at the end of the evening I like to plump them up so they don't deflate and lose their volume.
The cushions are very plump, and nice and soft and the material feels like silk although it is actually 100% polyester! Well hidden in the cushion covers is a neat little zip so the covers can be removed and they are machine washable which is great. Fortunately I have been like a tyrant around the new sofa so there has been no eating/rough play so these haven't got much dirt at all on them yet but it's good to bear in mind for the future!
I bought 2 cushions, one to be positioned on each end of the sofa so they balance out and look really stylish. Each pillow cost £8 at the time which I considered to be a real bargain, but I have now spotted they are discounted on the Wilko website down to £7! Either way, they are good value for money and I would certainly recommend them. The cushions can also be bought in a neutral colour (so with bronze/brown spots) or with vibrant green spots so there is a nice range to choose from. I certainly give these little gems 5 stars!
