What you need to know about buying cushions…
Choose your colors
Choosing cushions online begins with knowing your room’s colors. Think about the colors that stand out in your artwork, floor coverings, furniture, and decor, and incorporate them into your cushions. To ensure your couch colors don’t clash, use our couch color guide. If there are very few colors in your room, this is your chance to choose your favorites. Choose 1-3 colors for your designs.
Decide how many cushions you will need
Your lounge size will determine how many cushions you need. Two or three people can sit comfortably on a two-seater couch, while three to six people can sit comfortably on a large three-seater sofa. For specific sofa sizes, including large corner lounges, we provide a number guide. Extra large sizes can create a cozy space on your floor, so don’t forget to use them. Make sure you choose a number that is practical and suitable for the size of your couch.
Size, shape, and texture should all be considered
Combining cushion covers in different shapes, sizes, and textures will create an interesting collection. By layering different sizes and shapes, you can add depth and comfort to your look. There are different textures that suit different looks and contexts. The warmer months call for linen and cotton, while velvet adds elegance. Choosing a collection for the outdoors requires materials that are water and UV resistant. Change up the size, shape, and texture.
Make a shortlist and then purchase your cushions online
After considering color, number and style, shortlist the designs that appeal to you. Your final choice may depend on how you will arrange your collection. Check out our pre-styled sets, which have been hand-picked to coordinate with each other for a quick and easy fix. You can exchange or refund your final selection after you narrow down your options.
When shopping for casters, consider these factors
Casters are designed and constructed based on the following main factors:
- What will be done with the chair
- The capacity of the chair in terms of weight
- The type of flooring on which the chair will roll
Depending on your needs, caster size, material, and tread will be determined by these different factors.
It is more difficult to roll smaller wheels due to their increased stress during use. Wheels with larger diameters are better suited to frequent use and traveling over carpets with high piles. Oftentimes, cheaply made casters experience wear and tend to fail due to their inability to evenly distribute weight. Your floors can actually be damaged by the wrong tread.
The Caster’s parts
Plating Mounted Casters
A plate that holds the caster in place and is bolted to the bottom of the chair leg. The most common place to find these is on file cabinets and other types of office furniture.
Wheel/Caster for the office
An elastomer caster wheel, nylon caster wheel, steel caster wheel, or other material can be used. The wheel may actually be a ball that rolls in any direction in some cases. More industrial, heavy-duty casters tend to be made of metal rather than plastic or rubber.
Caster stem for office chairs
The wheel is often attached to the leg with a stem instead of a mounting plate. Stiffer stems are attached to chair legs and housed in housings to keep them secure.
Bushings for office casters
Providing gliding motion and smooth operation, this component helps the caster glide smoothly. These bearings can be cleaned and greased regularly as part of caster maintenance.
Caster Hood for Office
In some cases, casters have a hood that acts as a fender to hide dirt and debris collected by the casters. In spite of its usefulness, it does not actually contribute to the caster’s function.
