Garden cushions

Soft, comfortable and durable

Who doesn't enjoy relaxing in a lounge set in their own garden when the weather is nice? Comfort is then just as important as looks! A lounge set with soft cushions ensures that you can dream away a little longer with that good book. Outdoor cushions can be made of various materials. DoaBuy lists the most common materials for you so you know what you are getting.

Polyester garden cushions

Polyester is a popular choice for garden cushions. The material is durable and resistant to water and weather. Polyester is a synthetic material made from a mix of natural and synthetic fibres. Because it repels water reasonably well, it is also more resistant to fading and mould. So they stay beautiful for a long time and the weather doesn't soak in as quickly.

Cotton garden cushions

Cotton garden cushions usually feel more comfortable because cotton is a natural material. It is softer and breathable, which means it is often more comfortable than synthetics in hot weather. Cotton cushions, like cotton clothes, sweat less and wick away moisture better. As a result, it does stain a little easier because liquids soak in unlike, say, polyester. Sometimes cotton cushions are coated with a water-repellent layer like clothes or shoes against external influences. They are then less likely to get dirty. It doesn't have to be a problem, though, because garden cushions often have a separate cover that you can wash.

Dralon garden cushions

Dralon is a synthetic material widely used for garden cushions. It is made of a mix of natural and synthetic fibres and has the look and feel of natural fibres. So you get the benefits of natural materials, but not the burdens. Dralon is known for its durability and resistance to water and weather. Dralon garden cushions therefore stay beautiful for a long time.

Acrylic garden cushions

Acrylic is another synthetic material commonly found in garden cushions. Acrylic also resists water and weather well, and is a sturdy, durable fibre that can take a beating. Acrylic also retains colour and shape quite well, keeping cushions looking neat for a long time. Garden cushions made of acrylic are soft and comfortable to sit on, making them an excellent choice for garden furniture.
