Outdoor Fun with Outdoor Chair Cushions

Any cushions used for chairs placed outside the house or buildings (patio, near the pool, garden, sidewalk, etc) are generally referred to as Outdoor Chair Cushions. These cushions make hard angular chairs more comfortable to sit and they are also used for decorative purposes.

Since the outdoors is exposed to rain, the sun and other potentially dangerous elements, there is a need for outdoor chair cushions to be strong and durable. As such they are usually made of materials like Sunbrella, Outdura, acrylic, olefin and polyester, which are all known for durability.

These materials are light-weight but strong so they are ideal for cushioning, especially outdoors; they are very flexible so cushions wrinkle-free and always in shape; and they are resistant to fading, stains and mold and mildew.

Outdoor chair cushions can be plain, quilted, stitched or channeled and can either have square or rounded corners. They are made to fit outdoor chairs like Adirondack chairs, benches, high-backed club chairs, low-backed club chairs, bar stools, armchairs and many others.
