FAQ's - Frequently Asked Questions

Cushions made with indoor/outdoor fabrics are sized according to outdoor furniture standards; outdoor furniture is typically larger.

Size Standard indoor cushions are the same dimensions as Size Small outdoor cushions.

Size XL indoor cushions are the same dimensions as size Medium outdoor cushions.

Most customers find that the cushion is comfortable as long as the approximate dimensions of the chair pad are within 1"-2" of the seat size (plus or minus).

The mail order catalogs that carry our products typically show a bit of seat around the cushion, but some of our customers prefer a cushion that covers the seat edge to edge.

Rocking chair cushions are typically comfortable as long as the back rest cushion covers the spindle portion of the chair back, covering the spanners or the entire back is a matter of aesthetic preference.

If you'd like to see examples of both, take a look at our Customer Submitted Photo Gallery.

> View Customer Photo Gallery

Our dining chair cushions and rocking chair cushions are curved (U-shaped) and tapered at the back.

The back of the cushion is approximately 5" smaller between the ties than across the front of the cushion.

All dimensions are approximate.

If your chair is between sizes it would be a good idea to purchase a sample cushion or paper fitting template so you can see how it would look.

This comes down to personal preference, but we prefer the cushion size that would come closest to the depth measurement of the chair, without hanging too far over the front or the sides (about half an inch is fine). This may mean purchasing a cushion that is smaller than the chair seat.

Because it is hard to find skilled cutters, pattern makers, and sewers, we are already at or over full capacity filling our regular orders.

We're sorry, we are not able to take custom orders for items to be made in different dimensions than the sizes we currently carry.

If you previously purchased cushions from us and would like to purchase matching fabric to have someone make an item or size we don't carry, you can contact customer service about purchasing fabric by the yard.

Your local dry cleaner most likely has an alternations seamstress that can be commissioned to make simple styles such as valances or placemats.  You may have to hire a local upholsterer for custom cushion sizes.
