7 best padded seat cushions for comfier and more stylish dining

Posted by for Homeware

Make sitting down a luxe experience with a pretty padded seat cushion.

We’ve done a hell of a lot of sitting over the last year, but have we really and truly done it in style? If you’re lacking on the seat cushion front, then most probably not.

For there’s a chair and then there’s a seat-cushion-clad chair, and there’s a difference between the two. Perhaps you’ve got wooden kitchen chairs that you suspect are the source of your newfound back pain, or maybe you’ve copped yourself a set of garden chairs that feel about as comfortable as sitting on a bed of needles; whatever your seating scenario, a seat cushion is the answer.

But make no mistake: these aren’t just any cushions for your chairs, these are possibly the prettiest bottom-warmers on the market. Handily, many of them boast ties at their base as well, meaning they won’t go flying every time you move. And some are just there to aesthetically please you and your guests.

Regardless of what you seek from yours, just remember to throw them in with your weekly washing to keep them in tip-top condition and store outdoor seat cushions in dry conditions when they’re not being used to cushion cold bottoms. Happy sitting!
