Where can I find replacement cushions for my patio set?

This seems easy, but it's not. I've looked all over the internet and cannot find this size. The seat is 22W X 25L and 5D. The back is 22W X 17H X 5D. They are two separate cushions.

We bought a house with a pool and the owners left us some nice pool furniture. We didn't realize it at the time but they never took care of the cushions. So we need new cushions. I've looked all over the internet and cannot find this size. The seat is 22W X 25L and 5D. The back is 22W X 17H X 5D. They are two separate cushions. I found the seat at Target but it's sold out and nothing even remotely close to the back.

I briefly explored custom cushions however the few sits that even made this size were so high priced that I might as well just buy a new set of chairs.

Where can I find these cushions?

have you looked at cushionsource.com? I had some interior cushions made for a banquette in my kitchen and I seriously could not be happier. I had lots of email discussions with them regarding sizing and the right materials and so forth, and they gave me food for thought that otherwise would have never occurred to me. I had a fantastic experience with them.

I'm not sure why you're posing the question as the size of the seat and saying two cushions fit. I would measure each cushion and then do a search for cushions of that size.

You could also just have a new cover put over the existing cushions. A custom slip cover shouldn't cost that much. What about this?

Response by poster: I did measure the cushion. There is a seat cushion and a back cushion, not connected. I did a search for those sizes and they appear to be not standard.

I need eight seat cushions and eight backs, and the place mentioned above, however, at over $100 a piece, I'm thinking a new patio set is more economical. And that sounds crazy.

FoambyMail has the smaller foam pieces for $38 each and the larger ones for $55 each. So, yeah, about $93 per chair.

Right, I get that new cushions are expensive, I was just suggesting new cushion covers. Assuming the cushions themselves are fine and they only just look gross, I think the most economical thing would be new slip covers that you could just put over the existing cushions in their current state. If you don't want to do that, that's fine, just making sure you understood my suggestion. Good luck!

Did you try contacting target or the manufacturer of the furniture? I was in a similar situation where I needed a new part for my couch, and the manufacturer sent it to me for a reasonable price. Not sure if this would work for you, but worth a shot.

I think you have some wiggle room with the dimensions. It is not going to matter much if you get a 4 inch or 6 inch cushion if the originals were 5 inches thick. You'd probably be okay with cushions that were an inch larger or 1-2 inches smaller than your other two measurements. If you are worried, just buy one set and see how they do before buying the other 4.

I priced foam/cushions last year and they are not cheap. I ended up buying a 4" crib foam at Hancock Fabrics that was on sale for 30 percent off since I already had a cover. If the foam in your cushions is not in bad shape, I'd look at getting some water resistant fabric and recovering them.

Do you know who the manufacturer is?

Response by poster: No idea who the manufacturer is. No tags.

I would do covers but the foam on some of them is poking through. These people must have rough.
