Cushions

Tapestry cushions add colour, texture and pattern to a room's decor. Cushions on sofas and arm chairs are essential to create a comfortable place in which to relax. Tapestry cushions create a complete look with a wall-hanging tapestry.

If you know what cushion design or theme you are looking for, use the “cushion category” list on the left hand size of your page now to fine tune your search.

Tapestry cushions are supplied with a velvet backing, a zipper at the bottom and a fibre-filled insert. Cushions can be shipped with or without inserts.

For customers who wish to customize their cushion make-up, large and medium cushions are available without backing, ready to be made up as you like. These are referred to as unfinished. An unfinished panel is also suitable for picture framing and making up into a firescreen or a footstool. Classic Tapestries also offers a textile framing service, firescreen make up service and footstool upholstery service. We welcome enquiries. Examples of framed panels made up firescreens and upholstered footstools and chair seats can be viewed at our premises or images can be sent via email.

Large cushions are approximately 48 x 48 cm : $85.00 unfinished panels $69.00
Mediums cushions are approximately 35 x 35 cm : $60.00 unfinished panels $45.00
Small cushions are approximately 20 x 20 cm : $40.00  

Note: Some medium and small cushions may feature a slightly simplified design from the large cushions.

Norman & Medieval Collection

Scenes from the most famous tapestry, The Bayeux Tapestry, are found in this collection. The Bayeux tapestry was produced to commemorate the Battle of Hastings in 1066. Many pieces from museums around the world are represented here, The Hunt of the Unicorn, a series of tapestries now in the Metropolitan Museum, New York. The magnificent Ghent Marketplace and its smaller versions may be viewed here.

Tapestry weaving became an important industry during the Middle Ages, with thousands of weavers working on designs which were usually commissioned by the nobility or royalty. Tapestries were obviously used for decoration but also for excluding draughts in buildings before the widespread use of glass in windows, and to absorb noise.

Norman and Medieval tapestries and designs are available for purchase at Classic Tapestries. Not all are available for viewing on the website. We welcome enquiries. Please contact us for further designs.
