Cushions Buying Guide

Sink into comfort on your chairs, rocking chairs, benches, window seats, and other seating spaces throughout your home with the welcome coziness and beauty of cushions.  

Types of Cushions

Types of Cushions

A chair without a cushion is just, well, a chair. But a cushion is a wonderful way to add instant comfort and color, not just to chairs but to a variety of seating spots in your home. Plus, cushions are a relatively inexpensive method of transforming furniture, turning dated pieces into on-trend focal points for the dining room, entryway, and more. Depending on the seating you have—or the seating you're going to invest in—there are a number of types of cushions for the home. Those include chair and seat cushions, rocking chair cushions, bench cushions, cushion covers, and window seat cushions.

Chair and Seat Cushions

Chair and seat cushions are often integrated pieces—foam or filling attached to fabric—that are secured to seat bases with ties, buttons, or another method.

Cushion Covers

Cushion covers are designed to cover existing material or fabric to give cushions a new look. They may secure with ties, Velcro, or zippers, or simply by folding over the edges.

Window Seat Cushions

Like bench cushions, window seat cushions are typically a single piece that fits neatly into the size of the seat area. The cover may be removable for easy cleaning on a regular basis.

Product Features

Product Features

Although most cushions are constructed in the same manner—with fabric and fill—they do have certain product features that should be reviewed to help you figure out which choices best fit your lifestyle and your needs. For example, if you want the ability to pull off cushion covers and wash them regularly, then closures and ties will be important. Fabric determines wearability and durability, and fill plays into both comfort and care. Finally, size is a basic requirement to review and understand. Here's a guide to help.

Fabric

Where you intend to use your cushion may determine what fabric you focus on. For example, cushions on an entryway bench may need to be heavy-duty, outdoor-type fabric to withstand wear and tear. In addition, your cushion fabric conveys color and pattern; choose hues and decorations that fit with your decor to add a complementary accent to existing pieces.

Size

Your cushions should fit within the space of any furniture without sagging over the edges. If that's the case, they may wear unevenly.

Fill

The filling in chair cushions may be a solid piece of foam, polyester fiberfill, or some other type of material that adds comfort. Closely review how your fill is placed in the cushion. Loose fiberfill will restrict how you can clean the cushion, while a piece of foam may pop right out to wash the cover.

Closures/Ties

Cushion covers may be closed in a variety of ways, from hook-and-loop tape to fabric ties, zippers, and buttons. Some cushion covers may not be removable; in that case, either the whole cushion will be able to be laundered or special care requirements may be needed.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Ever sat on an uncomfortable chair cushion? Then you know how important it is to pay attention to even the smallest details on this seemingly easy purchase. If you use the seating pieces regularly—such as a bench to put on shoes in your mudroom—it's even more important to thoughtfully review not only type and product features, but purchase considerations that have an impact. Those include storage and durability; read on for helpful hints and guidance.

Storage

If you have times of the year when you are not using your cushions—say, a bench that's outside or chairs and seats that come out only at holiday times or special occasions—then you will need a dry spot to safely store your pieces.

Durability

Durability may determine how you care for your cushions. Those items that cannot be laundered may be made of more delicate fabric or fill materials, translating to more reserved use.
