Window seats have been around as early as the 18th century when tall narrow sash windows were popular. Since then we have seen window seats in kitchen areas, children's play rooms, master bedrooms and more commonly, living rooms. They are cozy nooks that allow us to sit and unwind. They are great for sipping hot chocolate on a cold winter day or just reading a book while the sunlight peeps through. But a window seat just isn't complete without a custom window seat cushion. They are the ultimate addition to any window seat area because they add even more comfort and relaxation.
Most window seat cushions will be exposed to the sunlight part or most of the day so it's important to have durable fade-resistant fabric for your cushions and pillows when they are in direct sunlight. Here at Cushion Source we only use premium furniture grade fabrics. Sunbrella® fabrics and Outdura® fabrics are the ideal choice in indoor/outdoor replacement cushions because they are made with 100% solution dyed acrylic yarn. Solution-dying is a process that allows color to be added to the fibers during the liquid state so the color will saturate the fibers all the way through and will not fade. Sunbrella and Outdura fabrics come with a 5-year warranty against fading and loss of strength.
Whether it's a residential replacement cushion request or a custom commercial design for a resort, Cushion Source is your source for indoor and outdoor replacement cushions. To get your window seat looking its best, Cushion Source can provide matching or coordinating custom cushions, pillows, and bolsters to complete your inviting space.
Choose from hundreds of solids, stripes, and prints from our extensive fabric collection. We have hundreds of high-end Sunbrella fabrics that are not only perfect for outdoor use but they are so beautiful you'll want to upholster your indoor furniture as well. If you don't find the exact fabric you want, we will be glad to use your fabric, what we call Customer's Own Material, or COM. Simply choose this option while choosing your custom cushion options, and once we receive your fabric, we will begin production of your custom pillows and cushions.
Standard comfort cushions and pads can be made for outdoor or indoor use. CumuPlush filling, for outdoor use, is layered polyester designed to resist mildew and does not retain water. This filling is recommended for all outdoor applications, but it may also be used indoors. We recommend foam fill primarily for indoor or protected outdoor applications, since water may be retained in the foam cushion for longer periods of time.
Deluxe comfort cushions feature a crowning effect. A layer of batting is placed on top and bottom of the cushion's fill, creating a plush and elegant look. Including the batting on both sides of the cushion allows the cushion to be reversible. However, this crowning effect may cause a gentle "rise" when the cushion is placed on some types of furniture. We recommend the Cumuplush Deluxe Custom Cushion for outdoors since it drains the best after a hard rain. We do not recommend adding buttons on the deluxe style for outdoors.
Optimal Comfort cushions are comprised of four components: a foam core; a layer of Memory Foam MicroGel; a layer of batting on top, bottom and front; all enclosed in a water-resistant zippered ticking (shell). The batting on top and bottom allows the cushion to be flipped whenever necessary. This crowning effect may cause a gentle "rise" (1/2 to 1 inch) when the cushion is placed on certain types of furniture. These cushions are extremely comfortable, are weather-resistant and will hold their shape over time.
