General FAQ's

Each cushion is crafted in India and designed in Sydney, Australia - we also collaborate with designers globally.

We take pride in luxury fabrics; therefore, the majority of our cushions are made from 100% linen or 100% cotton materials. We use an array of embroidery/applique techniques enhancing the fabrication of our pieces.

A description of the fabric/technique used on each cushion can be found under the fabric tab on the product page.

Paloma Living is only available to purchase in Australia through our wide range of independent stockists, both online and in store . Please visit our extensive list of Australian stockists here.

In order to maintain the quality of our cushions, we make them according to specific specifications and sizes. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate custom requests.

In the event that you are working on a commercial project and would like to purchase 200 units or more of each item, our team can accommodate size and design requirements to meet your specific design brief.

Fabric for our cushions cannot be purchased by the metre or by the yard; all our items have been cut to a specific size.

All our textiles are made for indoor use only; as we use natural fabrics such as linen and cotton. We do not recommend leaving the cushions outside.

All of our products are colour-checked by our colour expert design team, albeit we use flash photography which may alter the images slightly.

Please contact us if you have any questions about the color of our fabrics, and our design team will be able to provide you with a more accurate description.

If you are reordering or adding to your current collection, please be aware that fabrics can change colour as the seasons change and the dyeing process is repeated.

Although no two items are exactly the same, and imperfections are inherent in the product, our team will carefully select your order and colour match the items as closely as possible.

We have enlisted our care instructions under the CARE product tab. You'll also find further details on the care label inside the cushion; usually near the zipper line. The majority of our cushions are dry clean only however there are exceptions, please read the care label carefully.

If you have any queries, please contact our team directly and we'll be able to assist you further.

It is important to take extra care to ensure that luxury textiles have longevity. Please follow the instructions on the care label for washing instructions and avoid the use of linen sprays/ perfumes as several sprays contain chemicals or essential oils that may cause fabric to discolour, yellow, or stain.

To prevent fading, avoid leaving cushion covers near the sun for prolonged periods of time. The cushions should not be rubbed against another fabric as this can cause abrasion, tangling, fraying and pilling of the fabric.

Occasionally, it is good practice to remove the insert and let it air out, exposing the insert to the sun for a short period of time, and then placing it back into the cushion cover.

Occasionally, especially with linen pieces, small threads can get stuck between the lining and fabric. We recommend cutting a small hole in the lining (not the fabric) and pulling out the thread.

As we produce collections for a variety of markets, there may be certain products listed in our catalogue or social media platforms that cannot be purchased online. Since we produce selectively, not all items are available for purchase at all times; item availability fluctuates; the same is true for reordering styles.

It is recommended that you choose from our online store solely; if there is an item that you absolutely adore, we will check its availability.

Inserts and Styling FAQ's

All of our cushions are dispatched without inserts, Paloma Living does not sell cushion inserts.

In terms of premium pillow inserts, feather and down alternatives are the most common options. It is important to note that all options offer softness and comfort as well as firmness and body; including a high quality Dacron insert. It is ultimately a matter of personal preference. To achieve that "karate chop" look, feather is the most popular choice among interior designers.

We have listed our recommendations on each cushion under the "Insert Recommendations Tab"

We recommend always increasing your insert size by no more than 5cm / 1.96" each side. If you are unable to locate an insert of this particular size, we recommend scaling down slightly in size.

For an approximate guide, please see below our insert recomendations

Cushion Cover Size - 30x50 cm /11.81 x 19.68" :

Insert Recommendation - 35x55cm / 13.77 x 21.65" insert

Sizing listed on the website usually excludes Piping, Flanges, Edging and Detailing to ensure we recommend the correct insert size.

Considering our cushion covers are shipped from Australia via air freight, we are unable to include an insert in the satchel/carton.

The absence of an insert makes it a great choice for storing many seasonal items and replacing existing cushions.
