Measuring For Chair Cushions

Chair Cushions

Chair Cushion Thickness
Chair Cushion ThicknessAs with every cushion, we require you to specify a thickness for chair cushions. Cushion thickness is a matter of preference however choosing a cushion that is too thick or thin could result in an uncomfortable seating experience. The best way to get the cushion thickness that is right for your chair frame is to measure an existing cushion laying flat on the ground. If an old cushion is not available you can try to stack a book or two on your chair seat to get a rough idea of how thick your cushion should be.

NOTE: If your chair frame has arms, make sure that the cushion is not too thick as this could result in the arms being too low for the person sitting on the chair.

Chair Cushion Width
The chair cushion width is measured from side to side as shown in the image on the right.

If you are measuring an existing chair cushion, remember that you must measure the actual finished size of your cushion, not the length of the material from seam to seam.

Chair Cushion Back
The chair back is measured from the bottom of the back to the top of the back, or the height you would like your cushions to go up on the back of your chair.

Two-Piece CushionsWe require the size of the actual cushion itself. If you are ordering a two piece chair cushion you will need to deduct the thickness of the chair seat cushion from the overall length of the back of the chair.
