Cushions are the easiest way to transform your room to match your personality and style. Our cushion covers add colour and texture to your sofa or bed, so pick a cover that suits your decor the best. We have cushion covers online that range from elegant classic designs to fun cushions with bows and tassels. Many of our collections such as the MAYLINN cushion cover have different patterns on either side, so you change the look of your sofa with a simple flip of the cushion.
Fun or formal, these comfort cushions have your back

The GULLKLOCKA chenille fabric and the SANELA velvet cushion covers add interesting textures and beautiful colours to your decor.

What do you need to know before buying cushion covers:
Cushions have a way of changing the whole look and feel of a room. Changing your cushion covers are also an inexpensive way of switching up your interiors. So how do you know you are making the right choice when it comes to your cushion covers?
We’ve put together a list of things to keep in mind while picking out cushion covers for your home.
- The material of your cushion covers are an important aspect to consider. At IKEA, we have cushion covers made from a variety of the finest materials to suit your preference. From cotton velvet to polyester to cotton, we have something for everyone.
- While purchasing your cushion covers, make sure that they are slightly smaller than the cushion itself.
- The print and colour of your cushion covers are just as important as the points mentioned above. They have the capacity to change the entire look and feel of a room. Take in the colours and patterns in the room. Depending on that, you can choose monochrome or printed cushion covers. If you want to add a pop of colour to brighten up a neutral toned room, a bright monochrome cover is just what you need. Or you can pick a printed cover like LEIKNY to add a sophisticated touch to your living room.
- How many cushions are too many? There is really no right answer to that question. But ideally, it is recommended to stick to two or three cushions for a two seater sofa. The idea is to not overcrowd the seating area, but to have ample cushioning for comfortable seating.
How to measure the right fit for your cushions:
As mentioned above, cushion covers need to be slightly smaller than the cushion. Most of the time, customers opt for larger covers because they think a tight fitting cover will spoil the shape of the cushion. This is a common misconception. However, choosing slightly smaller cushion covers gives the cushion a nice plump look. This is especially true for cushions that are stuffed with feathers. In general, if your cushion inner measures 45cm x 45cm, the cushion cover should be around 42.5cm x 42.5cm.
Washing care for your cushion covers
Improper washing can cause damage to the cushion covers. Most covers can be machine washed, but depending on the material of the cover, you may need to hand wash the cover. If you are about to throw your covers into the washing machine, use a cold and delicate cycle. When the water is very hot, it can break down the fibres and damage the fabric of the covers. It can also ruin the prints and cause discolouration of the cushion covers.
The detergent that you use while washing the covers should be free from dyes and considerably mild. After they are washed, dry them in a shady area. Prolonged exposure to the sun’s rays can cause damage and discolouration to the cushion cover fabric. For those of you who use driers, make sure it is set to the lowest heat setting to avoid damage to the fabric and possible shrinkage of the cushion covers.
