You're sitting outside when you notice that the seat you're in isn't quite as comfortable as when first got them. You want something to make your outdoor sitting more comfortable, but what? Outdoor cushions are the ideal solution but outdoor furniture cushions take a lot of abuse. Rain soaks them. The sun beats down on them. And, if you have children, they are likely to get stained from outdoor picnics and those times when they confuse your outdoor cushion for things like a sled or a frisbee. But what if you could get an outdoor cushion that resists fading and staining?
Cushion Source is proud to offer premium outdoor patio cushions made from high-quality Sunbrella® acrylic fabrics. With a 5-year warranty against fading and fabrics that are easier to clean than many vinyl fabrics, Sunbrella fabrics are the ideal choice for your outdoor cushions.
Cushion Source uses a layered-polyester fiber material as filling for all of our outdoor cushions. The material is densified and bonded with a low-melt fiber for added strength. These fibers will not hold water, nor do they mold or mildew as foam filling often does. Inside and out, our cushions are of the highest quality available. A foam filling is also available, but we recommend that it only be used if you plan to take you cushions inside and not leave them in the elements.
Cushion Source also makes cushions for indoors. All of our cushions made with Sunbrella fabrics work great indoors as well as outdoors. Sunbrella works great for window seat cushions. Indoor cushions made with Sunbrella can sit in the window for years and you will not see any fading, GUARANTEED! We also offer a wide selection of cotton and polyester fabrics that are not suitable for extended outdoor use, but they are perfect for indoor applications. The reason we call these beautiful fabrics "indoor fabrics" is they will fade over time if left in the sun, and they are not stain resistant, but they are perfect in most indoor situations. For indoor cushions, you can choose between CumuPlush filling or foam filling. The foam filling is slightly firmer than a cumuPlush filled cushion of the same thickness.
We can make a cushion for virtually any seat you want with a cushion. From wicker (sometimes called rattan or settee) to chaise loungers to simple chair cushions, we cover it all. Since most all of our cushions are custom made, you get the cushion you want instead of having to make do with a boiler plate, mass produced style and size. Custom cushions cannot be returned. Please measure carefully. Then measure again. Templates are always welcome. Any unique seat cushions that are different from what we display will need templates, click on “How to Make a Template” to get exactly what you want.
Depth of chair seat – Measure the depth of the chair seat by starting with the back of the seat then measuring forward to the front of the seat. We only make cushions in ½-inch increments for depth or width. Make sure to round to the nearest half inch increment. If you measure using your existing seat cushion, you will want to measure using a straight ruler to get a precise measurement. Measure from the outside edge to the outside edge.
Width - Measure the width of the chair seat from left to right. The dimensions you provide will be the outer dimensions of the cushion, so make sure to double check.
Thickness - Measure the thickness of your cushion or give us the thickness you would like. We only make cushions thicknesses in 1-inch increments starting at 2 inches and all the way to 8 inches.
Use the guides below to ensure that every detailed measurement is made correctly. If you have any questions about this process, please call us toll free at 800.510.8325. Please be aware that any cushion that is not one of our standard shapes is considered a custom shaped cushion and will incur additional template charges.
Width (in orange) – Measure how wide of a bench cushion you will need by measuring the length of the bench from left to right.
Depth (in red) – Measure how deep you want your bench cushion to be by measuring the front of the seat to the back.
We offer two types of chair cushions. The first is individual seat and back units. These are ideal for people who only need one or the other or cushion. Some people simply like the option of allowing their guests of forgoing one or the other cushion. If you are going to be purchasing separate seat and back chair cushions please remember to subtract the thickness of the bottom cushion from the length of the back cushion.The second type is a seat and back connected. This option is less expensive than purchasing both the seat and back separately.
Width (in orange): Measure the inside of the frame between the arms from left to right
Height (in blue): Measure from the rear of the seat up to the top
Depth (in red): Measure from the front of the seat to the rear
All Wicker furniture will require a template, click on "How to Create a Wicker Cushion Template" to get exactly what you want.
When placing your order, you will be instructed to provide the outer dimensions for pricing your cushions, however, the template will define the specific shape which is common with Wicker cushions.
Along with edging comes the option for welting. Welting is a band of fabric that runs around the edge of your cushion (typically following a seam). The welting does not have to be of the same fabric as the cushion. Single welting is available on knife edging and double piping is available only on box edging. Please be aware that welting does add quite a bit of cost to cushion prices.
