What size Tolix Chair cushion should I buy?
Our industrial chair cushions are made specially to fit these metal industrial chairs, which are typically smaller than traditional dining chairs and require special tie placement.
Adding a tufted chair pad to your industrial chairs makes them more comfortable for folks with less cush in the toosh, and may save folks with wider behinds from getting pinched, by lifting their posterior up a few inches where the arms are a bit wider.
What size Tolix Stool cushion should I buy?
Although our square stool cushions fit many brands of tolix-style bar stools and counter-height bar chairs, not all brands are the same size & some brands offer multiple sizes. The furniture models shown in our photos may be a different size than your stool. Be sure to measure your stool before ordering cushions.
Frequently Asked Questions About Barnett Tolix Cushions
Why are Barnett Tolix cushions filled with latex foam?
Barnett Home Decor is the original creator of the latex foam dining chair pad.
After World War II, a new housing boom increased the demand for affordable home furnishings, and we started making home decor. Our neighboring business manufactured ladies undergarments and we purchased their defective bra inserts to recycle the latex foam as an affordable fill material.
It turned out, latex foam is superior to other fill materials because it lasts longer than other foams, and it will never go flat, unlike polyester fiber fill. 98% of our customers agree it is more comfortable, plus, latex foam fill cushions are machine washable!
We don't use bra inserts anymore, but our latex foam is still 100% pre-consumer recycled material from US manufacturers.
Is latex foam the same thing as memory foam?
Latex foam is not the same as memory foam, for chair pads, it's better!
Latex foam offers better support when the weight is concentrated on one spot (your "sit bones"). Memory foam may be nice when you need to distribute weight across a large surface like a mattress, but it's not ideal for chair pads.
Latex foam cushions last much longer than memory foam, without losing loft.
Latex foam cushions are machine washable, unlike memory foam cushions.
Finally, many of our customers are worried about potentially harmful off-gassing that memory foam is known for. Memory foam is made from polyurethane. Latex foam is made from natural and / or synthetic rubber.
How do you wash Tolix cushions? Do they have removable covers?
All of our Tolix cushions are machine washable! (Tapestry cushions are spot clean, Brisbane cushions are hand wash.)
The covers are not removable, the entire cushion goes in the washing machine to refresh the fabric and the foam! (Don't try this with other brands of cushions, polyester fiber fill and other types of foam do not hold up well to machine washing.)
