Outdoor Lounge Furniture Cushions

Anticipating the spring and summer months brings thoughts of backyard parties, barbecues and simple lounging in the sun by yourself or with friends and family. Having the right outdoor furniture is a big part of making your parties or relaxation efforts a success. Whether you’re shopping for dining or lounge furniture, there’s nothing like being able to sink into a comfortable chair to enjoy a meal or some sunshine. A big part of the comfort level of outdoor furniture is the cushions and pillows used. Not only does Pottery Barn offer a complete selection of styles and colors for pillows you can change often, but these all-weather pillows are also comfortable and durable as well, whether you need a replacement cushion or a comfortable seat cover for a chaise.

The majority of outdoor furniture is made of wicker, wood or metal, offering a neutral, natural hue. But when you add bold and colorful slipcovers and cushions, you have the ability to make your outdoor furniture add a splash of liveliness to your garden or balcony space. Look for striped, nautical themes, or opt for solids, such as navy blue, bright yellow or orange. Choose outdoor lounge cushions that are tufted to provide extra comfort.

When it comes to care and maintenance of your cushions and slipcovers, only a little is required to keep them looking fresh and wonderful year after year. In most cases, you can spot clean cushions with a damp cloth, or blot to remove excess water after a rainstorm. Allow these durable cushions to air dry in the sun. For a more intense cleaning, an outdoor fabric cleaner and protectant spray is advised so that they always live up to their potential. When it comes to slipcovers, many of them are machine washable and dryable, for the easiest of care. Simply toss them in the wash to clean. Made with Sunbrella® fabric, the polyester material used in the slipcover construction makes them naturally resistant to mold and mildew.

Every few years, you may decide to replace cushions for your dining and lounge furniture. Replacement cushions are available for nearly every available outdoor furniture collection, allowing you to keep enjoying your furniture year after year and change the color and style as you like. Whether you need replacement cushions for a sectional, a chaise or dining chair, there are many selections at hand. To keep cushions looking their tip-top year after year, it is best to store them during the winter months. Opt for a fabric cushion bag cover for easy storage once the season is over. It’s wise to store your cushions and furniture separately, and a universal cushion bag cover is a compact, easy way to do so.
