Designs on Cushions

We design and make unique personalised cushions from our garden office in SW London.

Our personalised premium linen cushions, perfect unique gifts for celebrating special occasions, which are made to order to celebrate weddings, engagements, birthdays and new arrivals or any date important to you.

Our School Cushions are made as a keepsake from your child’s school uniform.  Made as a patchwork cushion, each piece telling a different story and reminder of school life, create treasured memories for years to come.

We design and make all cushions to order to your special requirements.  We have been making them for over 15 years, which adds up to a lot of cushions!

The Face Behind The Business

Julia Oldham

I have been sewing since my school days, and I continued creating in my 20’s and 30’s, when I was kept busy making ball gowns, wedding and bridesmaids dresses.

After having my daughter, I completed a City & Guild Soft Furnishing course and dabbled in a variety of courses in millinery, tiara’s and wire bag making.  Still looking for the perfect business for me to do from home around my family, I was introduced to Designs on Cushions, which has been making cushions since the early 2000’s.  When the opportunity came to buy the business, in 2017, I snapped it up.

It’s everything i could wish for – being creative, bringing memories to life and creating special mementos.  I am looking forward to the future as I expand my range.
