Measurement Guides

make a cushion template

Any cushion that does not meet one of our shapes (rectangular, square, round or trapezoid) is considered a "unique shape" cushion. What this means is that we must make your cushion custom to fit your seat. In order to ensure a proper fit on your furniture, you must provide us a template (pattern) from which we will create your cushions. Also, all wicker furniture cushions require a template. These step-by-step instructions will show you how to make a template of your furniture.

Existing Cushion?

Do not order new cushions based on measurements of your existing or old cushions. Over time, cushions can become worn and the fabric stretched. Using these measurements will result in cushions that may not fit your furniture.

Measure the Furniture

It is strongly recommended that you measure the furniture that you will place your new cushion on. Please review the corresponding measuring guide below to ensure a properly fitted cushion.
