‘No, No!’ you’re saying, 'Not another needlepoint design site with the same old cushion designs!'
I know! I’ve looked at them too! Too many roses that look like cabbages! Too many tacky landscapes! Too many cute bunnies!
Not what I want in my home and not what I would design for my clients.
So the problem you face isn’t with needlepoint cushions; it’s with needlepoint designers!
Cushions do have a place in your home.
Needlepoint cushions can provide a chic and inexpensive accent to ‘spruce up’ any room, from living rooms and dining rooms to kitchens and bedrooms.
Decorative pillows can give a room a specific style or a splash of colour, which can complete the ‘look’ you want.
