Try It Before You Buy It

Too firm, too soft, too big or too small...We want to help you find the perfect cushions the first time.

Some things can't be discovered online, such as how the color will actually look in your kitchen, or how soft or firm the cushion will feel under your particular bottom.  We have learned from experience and testing that perception of firmness and softness varies by the individual.  Like The Princess & The Pea, some of us are so sensitive we would know if you slipped a nickel under our seat, but some of us might not notice if you slipped a gold nugget under there.  When it comes to cushions, we have found that, like mattresses, one person's "too firm" or  "too soft" might be another person's "just right".

We've also heard from plenty of couples who aren't sure which size to buy, even after measuring their chair.  You and your spouse might not agree on whether it matters if the cushion is exactly the same size as the seat, or your chair might be between sizes. Or perhaps you're trying to fit a rocker and your rocking chair's back is much wider at the top than at the bottom.

As a company, we're not big enough, or rich enough, to offer free shipping or free returns. And, actually, when you look at the returns policies of the major online home decor retailers, you'll find that others, including Amazon, Wayfair and Houzz, don't offer free returns on most home decor items either.

As a solution to these issues, we've developed the Try It Before You Buy It Program, and we hope you will find it a fair compromise. With over 70 years of experience selling latex foam cushions, and over 300 five star rated items, we're confident our cushions are worth every penny, but we want you to be as confident as we are before you purchase a set of our dining chair cushions or rocking chair cushions.
