Knowing beforehand about the purpose of the cushion helps decide what specific type to look at. Cushions manufactured specifically for decoration purpose do not have enough strength to provide support to your back. Thus, it should be avoided to use a decor cushion to provide comfort to the spine.
a. For Decoration: A heart-shaped cushion, undoubtedly, is the best pick. These are now-a-days available in canvas form, with a colored back and plain white front, giving you ample space to work up your creativity.
b. As a Headrest: Square cushions are the preferred choice for people looking for something that can provide comfort to the head and back. Covered in pretty customized cushion covers, these can also help you increase the aesthetic value of your home.
Age plays a vital role in deciding the color and pattern choice of an individual. If you plan to gift a set of cushions with covers to someone, ensure you know what age group they fall into. For a kid, you can customize the cover with images of their first birthday party, etc. For your partner, just the images do not seem to suffice. You can add lovey-dovey texts to express your innate feelings. For parents, ensure the color theme is subtle and soothing. For that, all you need to do is gather pictures from the trips you’ve spent together as a family, and add to the cover. You can either choose plain canvas cushion covers or the ones having colored back and plain front. What counts is the effort that goes in to personalize them with your imagination.
3. Wall Color
Imagine a royal purple cushion cover in a chocolate base color room!

You can either choose from covers having backs colored in red, yellow, black, etc. or all white ones and play with your creativity.
