18 of the Best Budget Cushions for under $50

I love budget cushions. Don’t get me wrong; I adore a splurge piece for my bed or sofa as much as the next guy. But then there’s something entirely awesome about securing yourself a budget buy that not only saves you some cash but looks super-stylin’ too.

As an interior designer and decorator, I’m all for investing in the big pieces for your home. But then, at times (and I always say this to my clients), you can go cheap and cheerful on some of the finishing touches if you want. And at prices like the ones in this post, I very much want!

I’ve documented by cushion obsession on the blog before (more on that here) and have in the past been banned by my partner from buying any more cushions (I have stacks in cupboards across the house already). But thankfully I think the ban has been lifted. Or at least it’s not been mentioned in a while. Which means it’s GAME ON!

So here it is, Creatives; my list of the best budget cushion buys for under $50. The ones you see in the image above, by the way, are from my friends at Lorraine Lea and you can check them out here. And if you haven’t seen my latest post on Kmart’s new budget furniture and decor releases (with cushions included), find that post here.

    Just love the selection above — my heart beats faster every time I see the word cushion, can never have enough, my big peeve is why do they all come with inserts, every purchase, and there are many, I end up with more to dispose of. It would be easier to sneek them in and hide and store, At this rate I could set up an online store to sell inserts — lol I bet you have the same problem.
