Posted in outdoor furniture by admin on the April 29th, 2010

In our last outdoor patio furniture cushions article we brought you ideas on decorating using the famous Sunbrella line of products that are high quality and designed with fabrics specific to withstand the elements and for adding that touch of softness to your outdoor furniture. However, since then, we’ve discovered some other patio seat cushion options that look like natural fabrics or have gorgeous exotic motifs and are really easy to order online and really affordable while still being designed to endure the outdoor elements. So here are the latest finds to help you decorate your outdoor space in a natural look or a fun tropical style that will be not just decorative but practical and save you money too.

Patio Shoppers is an outdoor furnishings specialty shop that operates online and has wicker and rattan and lots of patio items, including a collection of discount patio furniture cushions that don’t look discount at all. One of the most natural looking, simple yet elegant, designs is the Sedona style, which includes a selection of deep, soft wicker patio cushions that are priced under $140 and yet are made with the Sunbrella fabrics that just can’t be beat for quality. They are 3 and a half inches thick, with foam and batting, so you sink into luxurious softness, and the outer fabric is totally up to you. It can be a delicate natural beige or tan color, or a tropical floral or exotic motif that brings the jungle to life in your garden or on your deck. Although you won’t want to leave these cushions out in the rain or snow, they are crafted so as to not fade, retain moisture or mildew or mold and to be easy to clean. They endure sun and daily use and will be the outdoor patio chair cushions that you won’t need to worry about too much even someone spills something on them, or they get a little poolside splash.

Just to give you an idea what you can expect in choices for fabrics that are exotic and fun or tropical and elegant, take a look at these three patio seat cushion swatches. The first is called Thorndale Volcano….and it really does have an explosion of great colors, yet it’s still classy, not gaudy. The second is called Laguna Sage and is floral yet subtle with the background in the soft sage tones, just accented with the gorgeous hibiscus flower. The third patio cushion swatch that is delicate yet subtly tropical is the Veranda Polar Blue, but has a dominate amount of taupe in the feathery leaf motif. Naturally you may also choose the plain colors or nautical stripes or even abstract designs as well.

Replacement Cushions For Patio Furniture That Are Cheap and Practical

As we research the possible options for the most affordable patio cushions you can get online, we have been pleasantly surprised that there are some genuine good deals with Amazon. For example, take a look at the Hawaiian Palm Tropic design that costs just $19.99 and is cushy for sitting yet lively to look at with a brick red background for a leafy floral pattern.

This is a great option if you’re on a tight budget, or if you need a lot new cushions for chairs you already have. It’s also a great way to freshen up a tired look for summer, and do it without spending a fortune.

Take a second look at the rich look that the fabric has and how it could add some new life to your patio, and remember that you can get the single patio seat cushion or the loveseat in the same fabric. The loveseat one costs a little more, or try buying two and the loveseat, in other words a three piece set for under $90!
