Custom home decor sounds like it costs a fortune, but it doesn’t always have to be that way. A crop of new-ish, direct to customer companies have changed the made-just-for-you game for the better. Sure, some of these offerings may still give you sticker shock compared to the cost of mass-produced, big box furnishings. That said, by eliminating the middleman—namely showrooms with “to the trade” models of sale, these brands have brought the cost of custom decor down without compromising on the quality that bespoke products are generally known for.

Most importantly, you get exactly what you want: hand-picked items that fit your aesthetic and the way you live, from fabric and material choice to dimensions and sometimes even cushion fill on upholstered pieces. Custom pieces can also be ideal for when you’re dealing with challenges in your layout or need to eke out extra room or

Looking to outfit a window seat, bench, or even a breakfast nook? Cushion Source should be your first stop. You can find styles in both indoor and outdoor fabrics in a myriad of colors and patterns, and pieces can be ordered in whatever seat length you need.
