What scatter cushions to choose?

I'm looking for a few ideas for scatter cushions to put on my sofa and my two matching armchairs. I'm not sure whether to get cushions that match the armchairs or something entirely different eg floral etc. So any help will be much appreciated!

I have two x Ercol jubilee chairs with cushions in a blue check/plaid (Warwick Bainbridge indigo with a narrow green stripe), an olive green mid-century style sofa (same green as the stripe in the plaid). I also have a matching Ercol footstool covered in Designers Guild Hemsley Denim.

What scatter cushions would you recommend for the sofa and chairs - and what colour and style of table lamps?

Looking forward to hearing your ideas.

Many thanks.

PS I posted this on houzz.com but should have done it on this site so apologies if this comes up twice: I got told off about this last time in no uncertain terms but had no idea how to delete the old post. Oops!

This is the chair and footstool (ignore the rather old jaded green cushion)

The above is my living room albeit a while ago. Sofa is now on the opposite wall. I have different wall lights but very simple ones - still looking for new ones. The Persian rug is now in a different room and I still have the leather chair.
