SEEKING: Replacement Terrace Furniture cushions

We have tried everything, but cannot seems to find a place to buy replacement cushions for our outdoor rattan furniture.


We feel like it would be easier to get them made. (The fabric is quite easily available)


Anyone have ideas on shops that might stock the ready item or a place we can have them made?

Re: SEEKING: Replacement Terrace Furniture cushions

Can you post a picture of the furniture? Might help if we've seen something similar that would work...

Re: SEEKING: Replacement Terrace Furniture cushions

I think the easiest would be to let someone make it for you. It won't be super cheap, but I guess also not too expensive.

Just look for a sewer somewhere close to you, go and ask.

Re: SEEKING: Replacement Terrace Furniture cushions

I, too, was looking for cushions (to cover) - and was surprised that I couldn't find the sizes I needed anywhere, despite being pretty standard patio furniture. One... erm... helpful sales person said that people here generally just buy a whole new set of patio furniture when the cushions start looking raggedy...

So if your search proves similarly fruitless, get thee to Ikea, take a look at their foam mattresses. If the sizes are not quite right you can easily cut the foam to fit. Often child/crib bed mattresses work. They have pillows galore, sizes there should not be a problem.

Then make a waterproof under cover, and a fabric outer cover. You could put in a velcro closure if your sewing skills are not up to zippers.

Done and dusted - and likely for very little money.


ETA, looking at your pic again;

Are you sure the cushion foam can't be re-used? I've steam cleaned old foam cushions with good results. Take off the fabric cover, do it on a hot day, let the foam dry thoroughly. Then have new covers made as per above.
