Patio Cushion Fabrics

After picking the right cushion style, it’s time to consider your cushion fabric options. Each of our patio cushions is UV-treated for enhanced fade resistance, and the filling is composed of everLUXE® polyester, which helps them keep their shape and stand up to the elements.

Here are some of the materials available:

  • Acrylic: Fade-resistant fabric durable enough for outdoor use. Bleach-friendly, easy-care, and soft to the touch.
  • Prints: Durable and water-repellent polyester fabric that is easy to clean.
  • Solid Weave: Easy-clean and exceptionally durable Olefin fabric. Dries twice as fast as printed cushions.

Pro Tip

To clean your cushions, mix 1 gallon of water with 2 capfuls of dish soap. Apply with a sponge, rinse thoroughly, and allow to air dry.

The Final Touch

Planters, for example, are an affordable way to add a natural element to the space. Create a contemporary patio by choosing a planter that complements your cushion colours.

Don’t forget to keep your new cushions and your patio furniture protected with the right patio covers that will shield them from the elements. Our patio covers are available in a range of sizes and colours.
