Decades of history
Staffordshire is one of the most creative counties in the UK, and we have been designing and manufacturing cushions here since the company was first founded. The company was first established by the Evans family, who initially focused on manufacturing and selling beanbags. The company has evolved significantly over the past three decades, with our in-house team of highly-skilled and experienced artists keeping a close eye on modern trends to provide our customers with innovative, inspiring and beautiful printed collections. Our designers are noted for their hand-painted styles, and we have produced a number of lines with some of the UK’s most talented artists. Everything we supply has been manufactured by us, and the vast majority of designs are created in-house. We have also become a leading manufacturer & retailer of tea towels, aprons, tote bags and more.

Guidance and inspiration
We are always on hand to assist you if you ever do need any help with choosing the right cushions for your space. There are many factors that might determine which products are right for you, including your budget, the longevity you are looking for, your existing décor and your personal tastes. Many people decide to buy new cushions when their space has started to appear a little drab and uninviting. Cushions enable you to breathe new life into your home without making costly purchases and can even be used to cover up scuffs, marks and other signs of wear and tear. If your room appears somewhat mismatched, you can use the right cushions to restore harmony to the environment.
Need to create a contrast?
It’s also common for people to seek out alternatives when their existing cushions are the same colour as their sofas and chairs. When cushions are the same colour, they can simply blend into the furniture too much and make your room appear uninspiring and unwelcoming. If you need inspiration when choosing colours, opt for something that matches or compliments other parts of your room and offers a visually-pleasing contrast with your sofa and chairs. When you opt for colours that are the same as other parts of your room, you can tie everything together visually and stop your room from appearing mis-matched. Many people use colour palettes to help them when inspiration is required.
How many cushions do you need?
You also need to decide how many cushions you want to purchase. If you’re opting for a modern feel, you may wish to add an odd number of cushions, but if you’re targeting a classic, traditional feel, it may be best to use an even number. Of course, the size of your sofa will also play a role. Some people claim that you can never have too many cushions, and it can be wise to invest in multiple sets so you can switch styles whenever you feel the need to. Some people buy cushions online so they can compare them to the colours and furniture in their rooms, whilst others take pictures of their space before heading out to cushion stores. Whatever the case, Evans Lichfield is one of the UK’s most trusted sources for gorgeous, distinctive and long-lasting cushions.
