If the brighter days are making you crave a fresh look in your living space, cushions are an easy way to instantly change up the mood.

Although we may not be in the full swing of summer yet, there’s no denying the difference it makes to see daylight stretching well into the evening. And with these brighter days comes a desire to switch up some of the heavier textiles in our homes.

Just as we swap out heavy coats for something a little lighter, changing the textiles in our living rooms is a great way to instantly create a summery mood.

So if you want an alternative to darker cushions, or heavier materials like wool and velvet, we’ve found 14 light and bright options from Irish stores.
