The Best Fabrics for Outdoor Cushions

Outdoor cushions bring a new life to your outdoor living space, creating a comfortable getaway to enjoy the fresh air with friends and family. Even when stored properly, outdoor cushions can often be exposed to heavy rain, strong winds, and bright sunlight that can cause long-term damage to fabrics that aren’t up to the task.

Outdoor cushions come in a variety of fabric choices, but Cushion Connection delivers fabrics that hold up against whatever mother nature has in store. Here are the top 5 fabrics that ensure you’ll be able to enjoy your outdoor cushions for years to come.

Solution Dyed Acrylic

This fabric delivers outstanding outdoor performance for cushions and accessories of all shapes and sizes. Solution-dyed acrylic comes in a variety of intensely vibrant colors that are made to pop through a unique process that blends color into the fabric mid-production. Its UV resistant helps protect against fading and degradation for years to come. With a more natural look and feel, solution-dyed acrylic has a soft canvas feel while standing up against wear and tear from the elements. Cushion Connection uses Sunbrella and Outdura for our solution-dyed acrylic fabrics, providing a 5-year fade warranty that shows we stand behind the product we deliver.

Custom outdoor cushions and accessories.

Solution Dyed Polyester

Much like acrylic, solution-dyed polyester delivers comfortable, vibrant fabric for cushions and outdoor accessories that is resistant to UV light. Cushion Connection is proud to exclusively offer eight solid colors that can’t be found from any other cushion manufacturer. For those that are searching for simple, vibrant designs, solution-dyed polyester provides a soft, water-resistant, and fade-resistant fabric at a price that can’t be beaten.

Solution Dyed Polyester Jacquard

Unlike patterns that are printed onto fabric, jacquard is a weave style that creates designs that are intricately woven into the fabric itself. Solution-dyed polyester jacquards deliver the same quality and benefits as regular polyester, but with a look and design that adds a touch of elegance to your outdoor living design. This fabric may have a similar look and feel to an indoor fabric, but it has a strong UV-resistant and fade-resistant capability that keeps it looking beautiful for years to come.

Polyester/Olefin Jacquard

Combining two different materials, a polyester/olefin yarn blend delivers the perfect combination of beauty and durability. Jacquard weaving delivers a luxurious indoor appearance while the yarn blend creates a soft yet rugged fabric that is incredibly easy to clean and is resistant to sun damage over time.

Printed Polyester

Combining two different materials, a polyester/olefin yarn blend delivers the perfect combination of beauty and durability. Jacquard weaving delivers a luxurious indoor appearance while the yarn blend creates a soft yet rugged fabric that is incredibly easy to clean and is resistant to sun damage over time.

For customers that choose Cushion Connection, all of our fabrics are mold and mildew resistant while also delivering protection against harmful UV rays. While each fabric has these basic protections in place, it’s important to choose one that is right for your location and level of use. A customer in the midwest with direct sunlight on their outdoor living space may get more value out of solution dyed acrylic rather than printed polyester, while someone with a covered patio in the northeast may enjoy printed polyester.

Cushion Connection provides customers with fabric swatches, sharing the look and feel of the fabric before you buy! We’re focused on delivering the best outdoor cushions and outdoor living accessories that will bring new life to your sunroom, patio, or backyard.
