An informal type of box cushion with gathered or pleated corners–practical and much easier to make than formal boxing, they look chic and smart. The Ottomans (who once ruled Turkey) were reputed for their comfortable seating with piles of richly decorated floor cushions, lavish trimmings and tasseled edges.

The ottomans used cushions for comfortable seating on wooden benches and then over hard upholstery

The fabrics chosen for these types of cushions are almost always luxurious and elaborately finished with passementerie, buttons

Use for loose cushions and also for the backs and seats of wooden benches or over hard upholstery. Or for piles of floor cushions.
