What size dining chair cushion should I buy?
We make chair pads in multiple sizes to fit most dining chairs.
However, it's important to measure your chairs before ordering.
Visit our Size Guide for tips on selecting the best cushions for in-between sizes, or to see our cushions for bistro chairs, tolix chairs, and other seat types.
Our size standard dining chair cushions fit many traditional dining chairs, such as ladder-back chairs, and often fit dining sets with smaller side chairs.
Our Extra-Large dining chair cushions fit many contemporary dining chairs, such as Mission style slat-back dining chairs, and often fit dining table sets with larger arm chairs at the head of the table.

Why should I buy from Barnett Home Decor?
As a privately owned company, we don't have to cut corners to satisfy shareholders with big profit margins. We only have to please our customers with our quality.
These days, sustainability means more than just making a product that will last 10+ years. That's why we source our 100% pre-consumer recycled latex foam fill from US suppliers and don't use unnecessary plastic in our packaging.
We also offer a wide selection of sustainable fabric choices, from 100% Cotton, to outdoor fabrics made without potentially harmful chemical treatments, to 100% Olefin options, the fabric with the lowest carbon footprint according to the Higgs index.
Frequently Asked Questions About Barnett Dining Chair Cushions
Why are Barnett dining chair 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.
Are Barnett dining chair cushions safe to use outdoors?
How do you wash dining chair cushions? Do they have removable covers?
Most of our dining chair pads and patio 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.)
My dining chair cushions are narrow at the back and wider at the front, will these dining chair pads fit my chairs?
Our Standard and Extra-Large dining chair cushions are U-shaped and tapered at the back to fit most dining chairs, including chairs that are narrower at the back.
It's hard to define width along a curve, but typically, the distance between the ties is 5" less than the approximate width across the front of the cushion, at the widest points. So our size Standard dining chair pads are about 12" between the ties and our XL cushions are about 13" between the ties.
