< Someone told me that the cushion in period (late 13th century on up) would 
have piping on the seams and tassles.>

Tassles OK -- I've seen them on photos of museum owned articles. I've also 
seen some cushions in museums (esp. the V&A) which do *not* have tassles.

Piping/cording?? That smacks of *modern* asthetics to me.
