Dorma review – Boudior Cushion

17 12 2009

Inital thoughts
I received a Boudior cushion from Dorma to review. I must admit that I have never heard of the company before, although from the press release that I received with the cushion it seems that they have been at this for quite a while, since 1921! It is a cream cushion with a patterned strip down the middle.

We Liked

It is a pretty cushion made with nice fabric and has an easily removable cover for washing. I have washed it once and it seemed to wash perfectly well. I have had a root around on the website and there is a lot of lovely linen. The website is good too, although it views slightly weird on my computer, I am using Firefox on my Mac so maybe that has something to do with it.

We didn’t like
As cushions go this is a nice one. However, I would say that it is not really my taste, I prefer something a little brighter and with a pattern. The Memoirs Collection is more up my street with the lovely big peony pattern. I would have to say that at £30 it is more than I would spend on a cushion but I tend to make cushions for myself anyway. The bedlinen looks lovely but again it is quite expensive.


I like the fact that can you can get the whole coordinating range of bedlinen and matching cushions. Unfortunately these would be out of my price range, but they would be a lovely wedding present for someone as I am sure they are of the quality that would last and last. The website is clear and easy to use with great information, wish lists and online ordering.

The official blurb!
This Belvoir Cream Collection Cushion is designed by Dorma. Belvoir is a classically timeless damask jacquard, finely detailed scalloped braid styling and a deep top border add a glamorous decadence to the cushion and create a real love affair with luxury. Resplendent with its own accessories Belvoir is certain to add finesse and elegance to any bedroom.
