September 22, 2017

If you are looking to add both style and comfort to your home, particularly a Bohemian style then Floor Pillows are a fantastic option. As well as providing the perfect place for socialising and relaxing with friends, floor pillows are equally great for studying and reading alone. The bold designs and colors are also perfectly suited to a wider range of Bohemian pillows and cushions across your home. Below, we look at some of the benefits of Floor Pillows, different types of floor pillows and a few of our personal favourites.

Health Benefits of Floor Pillows

In cultures across the world, sitting on the floor is normal during most activities. So whether it's reading, watching TV, socialising or studying it's all done on Floor Pillows. You see, whilst most of us have accepted beds, sofas and chairs, the reality is that sitting on the floor is much better for our health. It naturally improves our posture, avoiding the inevitable slouching from lounging around on sofas. This improves strength and flexibility, which in turn improves your ability to stand up from sitting on the floor, which is a key indicator of life expectancy.

Casual Dining with Floor Pillows

As mentioned, many cultures eat on the floor. Just a few floor cushions placed around a low table makes the perfect informal dining room, full of charm. Small and Large dinner parties are fantastic in this format, and creates a fantastic chilled out vibe for your friends to enjoy. Don't think this is just confined to indoors either, a lot of our customers create fantastic spaces in their garden with floor pillows, allowing al fresco dining.

Extra Seating

Floor Pillows, although excellent when used every day are an excellent source of extra seating during busy times for your home. Storage is simple too, the excellent designs they feature mean that they look brilliant just piled in a corner of a room.


Meditation is the perfect way to unwind, and relax after a long day. Used for thousands of years to cure all kinds of physical and mental ailments, our meditation cushions provide the most comfortable base for your meditation, supporting your back and posture as well as boasting a beautiful design and bold colors.
