Buy Custom Cut Foam for Floor Cushions
Floor cushions, as the name suggests, are cushions that are used solely on floors without any supporting furniture frames. They can be big, small, fat or thin. This will vary substantially based on how and where they’re being used.
Used as an alternative to bean bags, a unique focal point or for traditional purposes, floor cushions can be noted throughout history and throughout cultures across the world.
Floor Cushions in History
The history of floor cushions stretches back far. Take the Japanese zabuton, for example. This has a history that can be traced back almost 1000 years!
A zabuton is a traditional Japanese floor cushion used for sitting on. They were originally used only by people of high statuses, such as those within the imperial court or by well-regarded Buddhist monks.
Nowadays, zabuton are utlisied throughout numerous aspects of Japanese culture. Sumo Wrestling, Rakugo (a form of often comical storytelling) and Jidaigeki (a genre of film, television, theatre or video game. Translates to “Period Drama”) are all examples of areas you may see zabuton in use.
A type of floor cushion known as a zafu is also used in meditation (Zen). These cushions are round, stuffed with fibers and are thought to originate from China.
Understanding Floor Culture
Floor culture is a style of living found in Japan, Korea and India.
The ancient Chinese also practiced floor culture (which is where the Japanese first adopted this style). It is believed that China moved away from this practice sometime during the Han dynasty when chairs first came to the country.
In places that practice floor culture, activities such as eating, relaxing, watching television, playing and sleeping can all take place on the floor.
Depending on the circumstances people will sometimes use floor cushions to help make them more comfortable throughout their day to day activities.
