  • I-cord Cushion Updates

Rather than buying new, there’s something refreshing about giving a lease of life to old furniture and accessories, and designer Dawn Finney has done exactly that with these cushion trims. Match up the shades to your décor and brighten up a corner of your home with a splash of colour. Our pattern fits a 50cm square cushion but you can easily adapt it to suit your needs.
