While we’ll often suggest taking our indoor scatter cushions outside in the summer to create a more welcoming atmosphere, the Evie collection is designed especially for the task. They bring softness, add colour and pattern (in this case, a geometric stripe in pale Flax Blue) and are showerproof to top it off. They’re also made in the UK.
Design & engineering
Evie is made from a showerproof and highly lightfast polyester fabric featuring a ‘Nanoblock’ fluorocarbon treatment, so it won’t fade in the sun or grow mouldy over time. Looking after it is easy too: just bring it inside if the weather turns bad and over winter, and sponge clean it if it gets dirty. The generously padded inner is made with polyester fibre too, which is similarly suited to life outdoors.
The pattern & colour
With its bold geometric stripe of airy Flax Blue on a crisp, bright white background, this cushion is undeniably summery, and especially so when combined with the nautical influence in the other, striped Evie cushions. You could opt for Flax Blue alone, but we suggest combining it with the Burnt Sienna cushions for a lively contrast.
Our 35x55cm cushions are ideal for both lower back support when sat on an outdoor dining chair or armchair, or for your neck and head when you’re stretched out on a sofa or sunlounger.
A styling tip or two
Scatter cushions are a fine art of having enough but not too many, whether they’re inside or out. Around the table for instance, we’d place one on every other chair, alternating with throws, so people can swap them around depending on who wants the extra cushioning and none end up on the floor. While on sofas, we’d opt for an odd number of three or five (depending on the sofa size).
