Birgit Linje Decorative Cushion
Not long ago people used to make most of the things they needed at home. That included their clothes and bedding, the bed sheets, the curtains and the table cloths. Women were very busy knitting and sewing and also embroidering all these items in order to make them more decorative. Nowadays this habit has died little by little, but there are still some areas where tradition is preserved as a national treasure. I think it is very well to have and keep traditions, but at the same time go on with the discoveries and innovations of the modern times, so in my opinion the best way is to find a balance between the two extremes. This Birgit Linje Decorative Cushion is the beautiful result of such a balance.
This cushion was designed by the Swedish designer Malin Åkerblom. His clear intention was to mix Swedish tradition with modern features and fabric and this cushion is the result. It is square and decorative and has the cutest little tassels. The cushion cover is made of a blend of wool and viscose which gives it a natural sheen. The cover is embroidered with different colour yarn and the model tries to imitate a traditional one. The cushion is covered with cotton and that makes it airy and soft, allowing the polyester filling to spread evenly. The cover has a modern and convenient zipper that allows it to be removes and washed . This item is supposed to be a floor cushion, so you can use it for decorating your floor, the sofa but even your bed. It is now available on IKEA for $17.99.
