If you can’t afford a sequinned moroccan wedding blanket…

Little Spree: Moroccan style sequinned cushion
M&S Sequinned Cushion

I have long been a fan of a Moroccan wedding blanket. I have one on the back of each of our sofas at home (I can’t bring myself to actually step on them, although I did try them as rugs initially). They were a pre-Tabarlow Liberty spurge (there is a story behind that, but I won’t bore you with that now…). So Moroccan wedding blankets – beautiful, but always with a pretty hefty price tag (even if you go directly to Morocco to buy one). I saw this gorgeous (tweedy, tufty and the sequins are the ‘right’ kind of dull ones) cushion when I was wandering through the M&S in Westfield a few months ago, and literally did a double-take. And I couldn’t believe the price (its original price that is – just £35.00) including the filling! I snapped it (I figured one was enough with two similar blankets already in residence, plus a very old sequinned cushion, an old favourite from Day Birger) up straight away. But wait for the best bit. It’s currently 20% off, so now just £28.00! Mine is on one of our sofas, but I love the idea of two on the bed. I also love how a new cushion (or three) can really refresh a sofa or room without spending too much. Needless to say, I always love a mash-up of different ones, and usually only buy one of any particular design. In fact, this is another one I liked when I was buying the sequinned one. Which is also now on sale. Hmmmm…
And here (below) are a few more cushions bargains that I’ve now also got my eye on. Oh and did I mention that La Redoute has a Bank Holiday Weekend sale on? 30% off!! Love a La Redoute sale!
