The final step to decide the number of cushions, for a traditional look stick with an even number of cushions as it is symmetric and pleasing to the eye and for an artistic look suited for modern styles an odd combination is mostly recommended. Remember selecting the right number is about balance, too many can be overcrowding and a few can make a room seem cold and uninspiring. Example for a single seater sofa use a single cushion, and for three seater sofa use five cushions.
