Default SERIOUS business.......outdoor Cushions REPLACEMENTS

The furniture looks great, but our choice of grey cushions wasn't wise; they now look old and dismal after 8 years.

What we WANT is for cushions to look good and last 5-10 years.

What we NEED is to have a cushion that repels water quickly (i.e. drains the rain fast), and one that has Sunbrella endurance to UV.

The Sunbrella part I get, but where do we find foam that is Fast Draining, and still supportive?

Better yet, does any THT member have a company that makes high-grade replacement cushions, or knows who does?

Anything skinned with marine grade Sunbrela will last.
You should be able to purchase some "flow foam" from Chaparral or Robalo boats.

Thanks for the suggestions. What we would like is to get a company to supply us with "drain-fast" foam, covered in Sunbrella or similar.

Any suggestions?

The only way I have found to get anywhere near that many years out of the cushions it to keep them out of the weather. Bring them in unless you are using them. Maybe not every day, but any time you aren't going to use them for a while. Sunbrella is good stuff.

Default CP Cushions

Here is a site that custom makes Sunbrella cushions for a good price: www.CPCushions.com

They are helpful and will make you some quality stuff. In my opinion, its worth paying a little bit more since the cushions will last 10 plus years. Give them a call!
