Cushlab is a small soft furnishings company based in rural Kent.
It was started by me, Rebecca Barton.
Originally I trained in fashion design, doing an M.A alongside Alexander McQueen, but I have always had a love of cushions and so in 2008 I started Cushlab, I want to design cushions that people love and covet, that look like no other cushions on the market - I hope we’ve achieved that!
Getting the right fabrics has always been really important to us, we have spent a lot of time going to fabric fairs and scouring the internet in order to find companies that share our love of wool felt, we think we finally have got there! If you order a Cushlab piece it will be made using 100% wool felts sourced from three fantastic UK fabric mills/suppliers who work with us closely to ensure the quality and colour of the cloth remains fantastic.
Our studio is in rural Kent (Tenterden) and Cushlab is comprised of a small, friendly and enthusiastic family team, we do everything in house including making the cushions, boxing and wrapping and also the PR and website management.
We are very keen for you to have exactly what you want so offer a free fabric swatch service and bespoke options come at no extra charge, so if you love one of the cushions but want it in different colours then we’ll be more than happy to do that for you at no extra cost.
Once we receive your order I will email you to confirm we have it and to ask you if you have any special requests in terms of delivery days, we know how irritating it can be waiting for orders to arrive.
We aim to launch two new collections every year, although we tend to sneak in new styles at whim and if you order a bespoke colour combo we will often add it to the range, we tend not to remove many cushions from the range.
The loop and woodgrain cushions were our first two styles and remain very popular, to drop them would be like losing an old friend.
Excitingly Cushlab gains a lot of press, both here and internationally which is great, we love it when people like what we do, and it still makes us excited to see our work in a shoot.
If you clicked on this page wanting to know more about Cushlab and me personally: Cushlab is a great company, it is small but because of that it can offer so much more in terms of service, because everything is made to order there is no waste, and because we source from the UK and only use natural fibres our carbon footprint is small - and each time we send a cushion out we are sad to see it go!
Me - I am the mother of three great kids (young adults), I enjoy walking the dog, relaxing in the sun, designing, watching Neighbours TV show (I know!) My favourite chef is Ottolenghi, my favourite city is London and I find it really hard to say no to buttered toast and chocolate, and if I won the lottery I would definitely buy a horse.
We hope you love what we do X
Cushlab would be nothing without the fantastic clients we have all over the world. People who share a love of quality, contemporary design. We have lots of 'thankyou' emails but have chosen just a few of our favorites, we thank you all for your kind words
