Are you as crazy about cushions as we are? We must admit that we have the very contagious cushion disease. No surprise that we started a webshop in 2011 with these wonderful eye-catchers for the home, which sometimes are real pieces of art. We found out ourselves that it can be difficult to find genuinely beautiful and special pillows, without having to search the entire country. With The Cushion Shop we want to make it easy for you; you just have to pick from our great selection. This consists of, for example, the home collection of fashion brands such as Missoni, Marimekko, Orla Kiely and Jean Paul Gaultier. All equally beautiful!
Cushions are still the common thread, but nowadays you will also find other luxury home accessories at The Cushion Shop, such as rugs, wallpaper, poufs, bedding, furniture, lighting, porcelain and much more. With over 50 brands and more than 2500 products, from renowned designers to unknown gems, we deliver worldwide. As an extra we offer our design service. You will receive free and professional interior advice about print and color combinations, design and fabrics. For free. Owners Lilian and Jurgen are happy to help you discover your own style.
How it all started…
The basis of The Cushion Shop goes back many years. From the time that founder Lilian studied graphic design at the art academy in Arnhem. That she bought a sketchbook on holiday in France to work out her ideas about renovating French houses. That she lived and worked in Hong Kong for six months to allow her creativity to flourish. The interest and curiosity in interior and architecture has always been there. And after many years of working in a design department of a well-known international company, it was time to change course. In her own desire for beautiful products, she could no longer resist the need to offer something special. Unique, high-quality, an exclusive offer, that was what it had to be.
The idea of starting an online store was born.
A period of networking and building relationships with the top brands followed. At that time, not all luxury brands were used to working with online dealers. Jurgen, who as a business economist had experience with international business and e-commerce, knew how to collaborate with exclusive brands. We convinced several brands and won their trust. Today, our customers are reaping the benefits of these relationships and we can offer such good service. We are quite proud that our customers rate us as Excellent on Trustpilot.
Great adventures start small
The first order was still packed at home in the attic. We even took a picture of the packed cushions; we were so proud and enthusiastic. The five exclusive brands from the very beginning grew to 50. The boxes no longer fitted in the attic and even populated the living room. It was clearly time for an external warehouse.
In order to cope with the growth and to further professionalize the company, Jurgen decided to join The Cushion Shop full-time. Jurgen and Lilian complement each other seamlessly. He the commercial and she the creative side. What he likes to do she doesn’t and vice versa. A perfect team!
Grow with the flow
We grow organically. On intuition. It must continue to fit us as a home item in the style of your home. Like the pillow on your couch. The Cushion Shop remains to be in a special niche market and every order is still packed with the same enthusiasm. Large or small. We are a very small team and we do everything ourselves; from purchasing to packing. With all the love. That’s why we really enjoy it when happy customers send us a photo of the end result.
To stay innovative and keep up with the trends, we visit various trade fairs. We continue to look for something special and unique, for small brands that are not yet known. Often colourful and always luxurious. That has never changed! We love doing business with things that make us feel good. Today, also the youngest generation of the family business uses its creativity to maintain the social media channels. This way we can always keep you informed of our latest finds.
