I think it is not something that can be tell by words. do a search on "polymodeling" or "boxmodeling" tutorial and learn the technique. You should be able to do it after you practise those tutorial you found.

here is a good tutorial on boxmodeling:

and here is a image-based tutorial for modeling a throw cushion:

good luck. ^_^

thx for replying. the thing is i am having problem with modelling the cushion. I cant get it. its like an 'S' shape and curvy. can you guys enlighten me on this and perhaps show me the way? domo arigato.

I'm a bit fresh at this but if I were doing this I would 1) lay out a shape like the cushion as seen from above, 2) extrude it, 3) bevel the edges and 4) push some of the vertices around to add the slight variations that keep it from being perfectly flat.

I'm with Deathcow. You need to practice modelling so you can break an object down into simpler tasks. In this case the profile of the cushion is almost entirely planar, so model it as such, then add depth once you're happy with the shape.
