How to look after my cushions?


Welcome to our comprehensive guide on caring for your cushions! At Amouri Home, we understand that cushions are not just accessories but an integral part of your home decor. They add comfort and style, and we're here to ensure that they continue to beautify your space for years to come.

Regular Maintenance: The Key to Cushion Longevity

  1. Plump to Perfection: Your cushions need regular plumping, this keeps them looking full. Make it a daily habit to give your cushions a quick fluff to maintain their shape.

  2. Shape and Chop: For a well-maintained look, practice the "chop" technique. Gently hit the top center of the cushion and the sides with the edge of your hand to create that coveted ‘chopped’ look.

  3. Unzipping and Adjusting: Regularly unzip and adjust your cushion padding to ensure the feathers fill out each corner to maintain the cushion's shape and prevent unevenness.

  4. Shaking and Fluffing: Shake and fluff your cushions periodically to prevent the feathers or filling from settling and creating flat spots. This simple action helps maintain an even distribution, keeping cushions plush and well-shaped.

Protecting Your Cushions

  1. Sunlight Exposure: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause fabric to fade. Position your cushions away from direct sun or rotate them frequently to avoid uneven fading.

  2. Beware of Clothing and Accessories: Rough materials on your clothing can damage cushion fabrics. Be mindful of these potential hazards, especially on more delicate cushion covers.

Cleaning and Care

  1. Dry Cleaning: Due to the variety of fabrics we use, dry cleaning is the safest option. This prevents shrinkage, colour bleeding, and fabric damage.

  2. Spot Cleaning: For minor spills, spot cleaning can be effective. Always test a small, inconspicuous area first before applying any cleaning agent to the entire surface.

  3. Fabric-Specific Care: Understand the care needs of different fabrics. For example, velvet may require brushing in a single direction, while linen might need gentler handling.


We aim for our cushions to last a lifetime. While we can't guarantee against normal wear and tear, following these care tips can significantly extend the life and beauty of your cushions. A little care goes a long way!
