FAQ - Cushions
Can you make custom cushions?
I am looking for indoor wood swing, and I want to be able to put a custom cushion on the swing. Is this something you would do?
Yes, we can make cushions for all our furniture items. If you come across an item that doesn’t already offer a custom cushion option, let us know what you have in mind (e.g., the exact item, size, and whether you’d like a cushion for the seat only or with a backrest as well) and we will quote you a price for a handmade, custom cushion for that item. We will also want to know what Sunbrella fabric you’d like us to use for the cushion(s); this will alter the pricing quote if you want to use a premium fabric that is over $30/yard.
Cushions take a bit longer to complete than the furniture because we have to wait for the fabric to arrive. Allow 4 weeks for the cushions to ship out; you’ll usually receive them about 2 weeks after the furniture has already arrived.
Can you make furniture covers?
I would love a nice fitted cover with my outdoor table and chairs, can you do this?
Yes we can, but we don't recommend it. We ship the furniture with 2 coats of what we think is the very best sealant on the market (Sikkens Cetol DEK Finish). The sealant will hold hte surface color for several years. When you add a cover, it limits or completely stops the wood from breathing (absorbing and releasing moisture) and you may create moisture related staining issues. If you want a cover nonetheless, we'll happily make one for you. Please go to Sunbrella Central and look over the outdoor fabric section. Go to the Marine/Awning section and let us know which fabric you’d like to use for the covers. Usually the outdoor furniture fabrics are best for cushions, but are too thin for covers. The Marine/Awning fabrics are too coarse to sit on, but make the best covers.Alex, our seamstress, will make a cover with elastic sewn into the perimeter so that it will fit snugly over the furniture.
