Finding the perfect cushion insert
There are so many options when it comes to finding the right cushion insert for your cushion covers. Everyone has their own preference when it comes to the type of insert (polyester, down, PET etc) but when it comes to size I try to find an insert that is at LEAST the same size as the cover if not slightly bigger - this is because I prefer a fuller look to my cushions. Depending on the type of insert filling you may not need to go bigger to get a fuller & fluffier look.
For the All things Neutral 50x50cm cushion covers ( Babalu, Shiva, & Raja ) I use IKEA's 50cmx50cm feather inserts, they provide a fluffy and full look that I find easy to style and comfortable to lounge on. I also use their 40cmx60cm inserts for my Moroccan Lumbar cushion covers.
I currently have one style of floor cushion (with more in the making) the Mahee Floor Cushion . I love this floor cushion as it is extremely versatile and can be filled with whatever you have around the house. The Mahee has a protective insert that sits inside the cushion cover to ensure the contents stay together. I used all my unwanted pillows to fill the Mahee but you can also use old blankets, clothes, cotton scraps or bean bag filling.
I have listed a few suggestions on places to buy inserts from:
IKEA: Feather inserts
SPOTLIGHT : Polyester & Feather
INNER GREEN - PET is made from 100% recycled water bottles. According to Inner green the inserts looks, feels and performs in the same way as a high-grade poly fiber
