Make space for summer

The summer’s just started and it’s already heating up! Most of us depend on electricity to cool us down, which of course is your first easy option. But what if we said there is a smarter way to hold your fight against this season?

Subtle fabric furnishings are classy to look at. We all know that by now. What you didn’t know is that they could also be a breezy solution to summers (and almost, every other season).

Here are some little tricks in the book that you’ll love to try out.

Light and Dark

summer cotton

Right when it’s summer, you might be coming across terms like ‘go light, go fine and nice’. But we say, do not limit yourselves to that.

Of course, light and subtle colours are a go-to option. But for dark-themed lovers or those who have light-coloured walls, solid colours would be the most appropriate choice. So, look for wise fabrics instead. Cotton and linens are fabrics that go a long way to make you feel fresh throughout the day. Both have great absorbent qualities, helping you dry up your sweat/ moisture (…and worries!).

Once the material is decided, the next comes colour. To embrace the season, you could get all the summer colours like red, orange, and yellow into your abode. You can still love your solid colours without compromising for the season. Or a mix and match of both light and dark shades can create an interesting effect on the house.

Like, if you have a dark-coloured sofa set, pastel or white-toned cushion covers will look fitting to the decor. On the other hand, you could also try out bold, bright colours like red or navy blue to stay on the dark-themed wagon.

What to get in summer?

Floor cushion

When you’re a seasonal shopper, picking furnishings can get confusing. What is necessary, what is not…all can be a bit of a haze. Here are some simple make-overs that might help you with this.

Stocking up curtains for the summer is universal knowledge. It sure is a natural practice by now. Solid cotton curtains work marvellously well for those who like the interiors dark and cosy. For most others, cotton sheers deem as a perfect fit, considering they want a touch of the summer sun but with reasonable warmth.

Next comes floor cushions! Since the heat is not spiking down anytime soon, lying down or gathering around on the floors has its perks. That’s where floor cushions are a great help. Quick catchup with friends and family, a short noon nap (with throws in place, of course!), or even have a picnic-style setting in the backyard. All are a no-brainer to plan as you have floor cushions ready to serve your purpose(s). The catch? They only accentuate the spaces wherever placed, which wins brownie points for the overall house look.

Summer essentials

Curtains and cushions have the added advantage of blending into almost every room. Be it bedrooms or living or even balconies. Another important furnishing, which is also exclusive in its usage, is the bed sheets.

Days are longer during summers, and nights can get a bit uncomfortable to sleep. That’s why bed sheets are a necessity. They could get messy very soon, especially if you have kids playing around during summer vacations. So, it’s wiser to choose cotton solids (colours) so the sheets don’t get too dirty too soon. In case you prefer lighter/ whiter tones, regular change-ups may be required. This is to ensure the bedroom stays consistently fresh during the season.

With such simple notes, summer in the house can get enjoyable. There would be less (or no) uneasiness indoors, making it quite relaxing. Just the thought of it makes you want to try a make-over, doesn’t it? (it does for us, at least!)
You’re all set for summer house shopping!

Guide to cleaning your Cotton Floor Cushions

Washing cushions could be a hassle sometimes. Though there are cushions that have separate covers that are considered easy to take out for a wash than those that are stitched up completely, keeping your cushions clean takes some effort.

General Cleaning

The traditional method of washing by tossing cushions in the machine may not be the best option for cleaning your floor cushions that are stitched up completely. If you are in that space of wondering what you can do to get floor cushions cleaned up, a general cleaning tip would be to vacuum them first. Vacuuming the cushions with an upholstery attachment regularly will remove any dirt, hair, or fur that get camouflaged with the cushion. Once you vacuum them be sure to use a damp sponge with some detergent and water to give the cushion a gentle wipe, spray some air refresher over it to give it some fragrance.

A majority of the cushion stains are caused by spills and accidents in the home. The method of cleaning the stains depends on what you have spilled and what fabric you have spilled it on. The key to removing any stain and saving your cushion is to deal with it as soon as possible. Stains that are given proper treatment at the right time helps to avoid a dirt spot in the future.

Dealing with Stains

Any fresh spills need to be scooped up immediately from the surface of the cushion, use a dry white cloth to blot out the stains and absorb as much as you can. Dampen another white cloth with some cool water to dab over the stain, work your way outside-in to avoid spreading the stain on the cushion. 

Many stains get cleaned up by using just water. However, if that doesn’t do the job. You can dissolve some detergent in water or use some diluted stain remover to spray over the stain to repeat the dabbing processing before wiping it off with another clean cloth. Again, remember to work your way outside-in to avoid any spreading. Be careful not to use too much detergent, as you will need to get it off your cushion later.

Stubborn Stains

Some stubborn stains caused by chewing gum, ink, or oil might be a bit difficult to clean off from the cushions. Some home remedies might work. However, it is best to leave it for the professionals. Giving your cushions to the dry-cleaning services to have a look at the tough stains is worth the expense as they will be better judges of getting rid of the tough stubborn stains. Also ensure that you explain everything about the stain to the professions – the duration of the stain, the cause of the stain, etc. This would make it easier for them to provide the right treatment and restore it to its best condition. And always remember not to use bleach to brighten your cushions fabrics as this could weaken the fabric and cause it to lose its integrity.

Some FAQs about Thoppia’s Floor Cushions

Will the floor cushions lose shape after washing?

The retention of the shape of your floor cushions is dependent on the material used in the filling. Using a filling that maintains its integrity even during wet conditions are the ones that survive the wash and retain their shape. Floor cushions made at Thoppia can be hand-washed as they are filled with recron-fibers. These fibers help the cushion retain the same shape after being completely soaked in water. However, the challenge is the time that takes for the cushions to dry up completely which is somewhere between 2 to 3 days.

Can the Floor cushion covers be removed for washing?

The floor cushions at Thoppia come intact with the filling. The covers are not separable and will need to be washed as a whole.

Will the floor cushion color fade after washing?

No, all our fabrics are checked for colorfastness. The colors won’t run on washing. It may get faded if you keep it on the sun for a longer time for drying or if you place it outdoors regularly.

How often do they need to be washed?

Our floor cushions can be washed once every 2 or 3 months depending on your usage. Regular vacuuming is sure to keep your cushions clean for longer.

What are the dimensions of the floor cushions?

The cushions form a square with every side measuring 51cm or 20 inches, while the thickness of the cushion is about 10cm or 4inches.

4 Home décor trends that are now outdated

This year seems to be quickly passing in a blur. Trends come and go, fads rage and fade away. Amidst everything, it is a little difficult to keep track of everything new and trending, especially in home décor. But you still want your home to look and feel modern and stylish, don’t you?

For keeping your home modern and stylish, it is not only important to know what is in trend, but also what is out of trend. Think of it – you want your house to have the latest and trending pieces and demeanor. But for that, you need to know what pieces and demeanor are outdated. And finding that out is not easy!

But guess what? We have got you covered. Scroll to know 4 home décor trends that are currently out – what you should say no to. And the hot trends that you can replace them with, and say yes to.

A single shade of a single color

You have seen plenty of “all white” or “all beige” or “all grey” rooms. Now, this trend is fading. So get your home a rich blend of colors and materials, in various hues. Perhaps get a sheer cotton curtain in a color like Sunflower Yellow for your living room, or a Blue duvet cover for your bedroom.

Bedroom Decor Ideas

Okay, maybe you really love this passed trend, and you don’t want to play around with other colors. Fine then, we suggest you go for various shades of the same color. Every color has many shades, even white. You can also try incorporating chic stripes and patterns keeping the color the same. Like using White linen curtains in one room and having fine striped linen curtains in Grey and White in another room.

Repetitive Accessories

Interior Decoration

Using the same designs and pieces all through your home? Nope. You live in a house, not a corporate office. It is important to follow color schemes, if your home has them, but you can play a bit with accessories and the overall décor.

What you can do instead is display items with a character, a personality. Like books, small sculptures, handwoven cotton cushions, intriguing artwork, stitch cloth, framed poetry, etc. Or limited edition pieces if you’d like.

Textiles and furnishings that just softly lay around

We have all bought something for our homes, that just looked pretty and had absolutely no functional benefit. Especially something in textiles and furnishings. Now, it’s time to rethink that buying habit.

You need furnishings and textiles that do more in your home than just softly lying around. Like a cotton throw, or a floor cushion. Functional and versatile pieces that you can use in many ways for various activities in your daily life.

Too much artificiality

The world is changing. People are leaning more towards sustainable, organic, nature-inspired forms, materials and textiles. So it’s high time you avoid, or at least reduce, the usage of synthetic stuff in your home.

Go for cotton table mats and lampshades. Make use of 100% cotton bath towels and rugs. All the more better if you use handmade and handwoven products. Try to go as natural as you can for your home décor and the things you utilize at home.

Now that you know what trends you need to give up or stay away from, and how to replace them, try incorporating these changes in your home to give it a more contemporary look and feel. Decide on what kind of appearance and aura you are aiming for, and start the process. It might take you a while, but it will totally be worth it.

On the Floor – Plush Pillows for a cozy time

Make your own Reading Nook

How many times have you heard someone (read your mom) say that you’re always on your phone or laptop? It’s time to prove to them that it’s not always the case. Put that phone down for a while and pick up an actual book or magazine. Your home will surely have some small nooks and hidden alcoves. If not, your bedroom or verandah is great too.

Those nooks can be turned into treasured areas. And they’re perfect for having lots of floor cushions! Unwind with a Handwoven Stripe Cotton Floor Cushion, something soft and handwoven will be best for your moments of uninterrupted reading. Curl up on it or lean on it, and focus.

100% Cotton VS Pure Cotton

While picking your favourite shade is a snap, choosing the right fabric to suit your preferences is a bit complicated. Because if you are looking for a ‘pure cotton’ tag, let us tell you one thing. Even that doesn’t authenticate the quality of the cotton that you are using. Yes. The label ‘Pure cotton’, especially in India, doesn’t mean that the fabric is only made of cotton. Rather, it means that the amount of cotton that has been used in the fabric is pure.

If you are looking for cotton garments that are not blended, what you should ideally go for is a 100% cotton tag. This will ensure that your home furnishings are going to be 100% environment-friendly, hypoallergenic, strong and comfortable. Your ‘100% cotton’ fabric is a natural product only consisting of cellulosic fibres. It is biodegradable and can withstand as many hot washes in its lifetime as it needs to.

The ‘real’ pure cotton

Cotton is the most popular fabric used to make home furnishings, and for a good reason. A 100% cotton bed sheet or cushion cover will be durable, soft and easy to care for. This fabric is also going to be breathable –allowing your skin to breathe, and eliminating the possibility of rashes and boils. Good cotton is dust-mite resistant, thus reducing the chance of any skin allergies. Unlike ‘Pure Cotton’ fabric, 100% cotton fabric keeps moisture from building up between your skin and the material.


The International Forum for Cotton Promotion (Livestrong) stated that cotton can take up to one-fifth of its weight in water before getting damp. Blended cotton too can feel roughly the same but is sure to get sweaty during hot summer days.

In Thoppia, we procure contamination-free combed cotton yarn for bed sheets. The process of combing the cotton makes the yarn stronger & softer. It also cleans batches of shorter fibres and impurities resulting in finer and more compact cotton. Our tightly twisted yarn can create a lighter fabric that is ideal for hot weather conditions – when your body needs more cooling & comfort. They are also good at springing back, which means they’ll remain wrinkle-free and excellent to drape for a lifetime. This is the reason why our bedding allows your skin to breathe and doesn’t trap heat under the covers.

Above all, our 100% cotton fabric ensures that your home furnishings have a crisp and fresh look throughout your lifetime – because good cotton is going to be in it for the long haul.
