Adding Chair Cushions With Ties to Your Dining Chairs

Adding chair cushions with ties to your dining chairs is an easy and inexpensive way to soften up the look of your furniture. They also make the chairs easier to clean and are available in a variety of shapes, colors and textures.

Cushion Shapes and Textures

Decorative cushions come in a wide range of shapes, from long tubular “Tootsie Roll” styles to rectangular, square or even perfectly round styles. Many of these pillows feature embellishments, such as buttons, sequins or embroidery, to add a touch of bling.

Some of these pillows are tufted to create a padded and ergonomic feel. They are typically made of foam or polyester, though some are made of cotton, microsuede or twill fabric.

These padded cushions are especially helpful for hard-surfaced seats, such as those found in dining chairs. They are available in a wide range of sizes, from small to extra large.

They can be either loose or tied down. Loose options are more versatile since they can be easily tossed in the washing machine and replaced when you need to.

If you’re going to be using your cushions outdoors, it may be a good idea to get outdoor-friendly materials like weather resistant fabrics and polyfill. These materials protect the cushion from sunlight and are easily wiped down for cleaning.

Tie Downs and Ties

Chair cushions can slip on lawn chairs, so it’s a good idea to use ties or other means of attaching them. Ties are decorative, but they can also help keep the cushion in place so it doesn’t blow into your yard on windy days.

To tie a chair seat, you need two strips of fabric that are about 3-inches wide and 20-inches long. The length of the ties can be adjusted to fit any cushion. To make a pair of ties, sew both pieces of fabric right side together along three sides, leaving one of the 3 inches open.

Ties can be placed around the opening in the cushion for a finished look or they can be used to attach the cushion to the backing of the chair. When you have both the tie and the cushion covered in fabric, you can use a sewing machine to stitch them on.

Whether you have a traditional set of wood chairs or a contemporary one, these tufted and padded cushions are an affordable option to improve the look of your furniture. They are tufted with four circle tacks to prevent shifting and have string ties for easy attachment to your chair.

They’re made of high-quality fabric that’s designed to resist fading from exposure to the sun. They’re also machine-washable for ease of care and are perfect for indoor or outdoor use.

The tufted design of these textured pillow covers gives them a sophisticated appeal that complements modern styles. They’re made of 100% polyester, which is resistant to water and dirt. They’re easy to clean and can be washed with a damp cloth.
