                                If you meditate daily like me, you know just how hard it is to find a quiet, comfortable spot, especially if you&#8217;re always on the go. That&#8217;s where meditation cushions come in as they&#8217;re portable and they help support your body so you can stay focused on your practice. If you&#8217;ve looked around online, you know the options are fairly limited. Enter <a href="https://projectfull.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Project Full</a>. They&#8217;re a San Francisco-based company that was founded by architects and industrial designers who also happen to be committed to meditation and mindful living.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign in early 2018, they’ve launched a collection of modern meditation cushions that are 100% organic. They’ve available in sets, which include a bottom floor cushion + top support cushion, and come in five colors – Charcoal, Moonrock, Natural, Rosewood, and Slate Grey. The triangular shaped cushions offer a comfortable place to sit, relax, or mediate when you’re

The Dutch design duo created the Grid Knit pillows with their signature style of visually enticing colors and geometric patterns made using the computerized knitting machines at the TextielLab. The colorful &#8216;grids,&#8217; which kind of resemble a chain link fence, are made from various colors, including fluorescent ones, that are knitted onto soft 100% merino wool that makes up the pillows.
Since the label had worked with the designers before, they invited them back and the cushions will be a part of the ‘Simply Scandinavian – Nordic Design 1945-2018’ exhibition. The Grid Knit pillows come in four color ways and in two sizes, and will be available in October at the TextielShop in the museum, online, and various international shops.

Society6 Launches New Floor Pillows For Your Home

                                                <a href="http://design-milk.com/society6-launches-new-floor-pillows-home/society6-floor-cushions/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="http://0.design-milk.com/images/2017/03/society6-floor-cushions-810x405.jpg" alt="Society6 Launches New Floor Pillows For Your Home" /></a>
                                Whenever I’m at a friend’s house or even in my own home, I notice that people generally love sitting on the floor. Whether we’re doing board games or wine night, there’s something comforting and maybe even a little nostalgic about sprawling out on the floor versus on the couch or an upright arm chair. If you’re a fan of the lower seat or just don’t have enough furniture for all your guests, you’ll love <a href="https://society6.com/?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6’s</a> newly launched <a href="https://society6.com/floor-pillows?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">floor pillows</a>. They’re overly stuffed so they’re firm (so they’ll keep their shape) but soft (so your bum won’t hate you for playing Catan for 3 hours on the floor). Plus, the all-over prints designed by <a href="https://society6.com/?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6’s</a> artists and designers look <em>so good</em> and will probably have your friends asking “Where’d you get that?” all night. Here are some of my current favorites:
