Here are some Egyptian brands that would get you equipped for your next pillow fight, ensuring that the last thing your nephew sees before the smack is ‘Christian Lacroix’.
Cushions are the most understated of our decorations. They complete the focal point of every living room; sofas, provide support while binge watching and enhance the overall aesthetic of the space. But let’s face it, the best function of cushions is discovered in pillow fights. Here are some Egyptian brands that would get you equipped for your next pillow fight, ensuring that the last thing your nephew sees before the smack is ‘Christian Lacroix’.

While some of us are stuck on Soup Kids’ cushions made for the little ones, it's Soup Design House that offers cushions for, well, ‘grown ups.’ Not to say that Giraffe prints aren’t mature, but if you’re looking for bright, colourful cushions with relatable messages that could offer a laugh during the fight or signal a truce, then you’ve found it. Chill, paw!
