About Outdoor Cushions


The weather in the North East has been frightful, and you probably aren’t thinking about lounging outdoors just yet, but we are getting ready for the warmer weather and shipping our first outdoor cushions of 2021.

These GIANTS (60”x 80” and 60” x 60”) were made for a couple in Toms River, NJ that repurposed two indoor futons for use on their two-story deck overlooking a lagoon leading to the Barnegat Bay.

Two Unfinished Pine frames were treated with WOODLIFE® wood preservative. WOODLIFE Classic wood preservative 100% clear formula, used as a final finish or primer, repels water and contains nearly double the fungicide of standard sealers and stains.

The designer asked us to fabricate something of exceptional quality - “out of the ordinary” - to stand up to the harsh southern sun exposure, almost constant breeze, and frequent rain.  We offered the following solution:
Qualux ® high resiliency foam with a Dacron® wrap, covered with Herculite ® hospital fabric, and an exterior finish using Sunbrella® outdoor fabric. 

Qualux is a high resiliency foam that meets your demands for consistency, longevity, comfort, and support.  Qualux has a soft surface, yet firms up quickly when compressed, providing proper body support in all seating applications.  American Down & Feather keeps an inventory of Qualux foam and uses it in all of its cushion inserts.  All grades of Qualux meet current California 117 flammability standards and are produced without CFC’s.  That makes our Qualux cushions as comfortable for the environment as they are for your customers.
Herculite’s Sure-Chek® pillow fabric is constructed of specially formulated hypoallergenic thermoplastic films and synthetic fibers.  It is fluid resistant and contains a unique antimicrobial system to protect the fabric for the life of the product.  Herculite has been manufacturing these specialty fabrics for more than 60 years.
Sunbrella® is the undisputed leader in fabrics for Outdoor Living.  Sunbrella produces stylish, comfortable fabrics that last.
