My dream favourites  
by Hendrikje 
Of course it was impossible to choose only one favorite because it was as if I had fallen into a treasure chest! Cushions have literally to be like kisses. They should have the power to make me dream, so that’s how I chose my dream cushions. I love to dream of other countries with their unique smells and colours and these cushions and pouffes were able to whisk me away to those places…
First of all I kiss Tanzania, the country where I was born and saw my first colours. This cushion takes me there and when I close my eyes I smell the smells again. When I have returned I sit up on the Formosa pouf – Formosa a former colony of The Netherlands, now Taiwan, is where I have wonderful memories of travelling there as a 14 year old with my family. I stay in Asia and dive into the softness of Poeme Dragon – inspired by the name but also its exotic look. And now I freshen up with the Universo Cedro– the bright colour and lines give light and space that make you feel happy. Finally, to the Haikou – the eponymous city in China – for the deep Indigo blue colours – used in Asia for centuries as a dye and a reference to the Greek word indikon – India – that only became better known in Europe through the sea route discovered by Vasco Da Gama at the end of the 15th century. These make you long for the sea & heavenly blue. What more can you dream of?
