Frequently Asked Questions

Product Specifications


Product Availability
All of the cushions that are offered on the CustomCushions.com web site are manufactured per order based on customer specifications and are available for ordering in any of the furniture fabrics appearing in our fabric collection. While we try to update our fabric collection on a regular basis, we are subject to the notifications of fabric availability provided by our suppliers . As a result we are unable to guarantee that all of the fabrics appearing on the CustomCushions.com web site will be available from the manufacturer. If your order contains an item with a particular fabric that has been discontinued or otherwise is no longer available but is still appearing on our site, you will be notified as soon as possible by phone or email.


What Type Of Cushion Constructions Are Available?
CustomCushions.com makes cushions in two different types of constructions. Boxed style boxed edge cushions and Basic style waterfall edge or knife edge cushions.

Deluxe style boxed edge cushions are constructed with top and bottom fabric panels that are connected by an additional strip of fabric between the two panels, making the cushion look more boxed with well defined edges due to the double seams.

Basic style waterfall edge cushions and knife edge cushions are constructed with top and bottom fabric panels that are sewn directly to each other, creating a softer, smoother edge resembling a waterfall when filled. Thinner cushions with waterfall edge construction are also commonly referred to as Knife Edge cushions.


What Type Of Cushion Filling Does CustomCushions.com Use?
Our Waterfall Edge style chair, chaise, ottoman and seat cushions are filled completely with our Dupont® brand polyester fiber filling.

All of our Boxed Edge cushions and pads, as well as all of our bench cushions (both Basic and Boxed styles) are filled with high quality indoor-outdoor foam wrapped with a polyester fiber batting for added comfort.

The fibers in our Dupont® brand polyester filling are vertically layered and bonded together using a unique heating process to create sheets of firm 100% polyester fibers that stand upright and support each other for maximum product life. The heat-bonding process uses heat to bond the polyester fibers together forming sheets of filling that are custom-cut and shaped to fit your cushions perfectly.

NOTE: CustomCushions.com does NOT use resin-bonded fibers which are often bonded using flamable resins that break down and also cause cushions to become extremely dusty over time.


You Offer Trimming On Your Cushions?
Yes. Welting is optional on all custom made cushions. Welting is a type of trimming that is sewn into the seams of the cushion in which the seam cannot be seen and the cushion or pillow is given an appearance of a piping or tubing instead. Welting can be made in either the same fabric or contrasting fabric colors. This provides a crisper look to the cushion while providing enhanced stitching durability.

Cushions made with a waterfall edge construction have a single welt option as there is only one seam. Cushions made in a boxed edge construction have double welt options for the top and bottom seams of the pad.


Do Your Cushions Include Zippers?
Zippers are included on our custom seat pads, bench pads, plain ottoman cushions, deep seating chair and deep seating chaise cushions that are made in a boxed edge construction.


Are Your Cushions Made In America?
YES! All of our cushions and pillows are manufactured right here in the United States of America using only domestically manufactured materials.

Are Custom Sizes Exact?
Because of the dynamic nature of the materials involved in the production of cushions and pillows (ie. Fabric, Fiberfill, Foam, String) precision sizes are not possible and CustomCushions.com does not guarantee that the finished sizes will be exact. While all orders are made as close as possible to customer specifications, there are many fators which can change the size of the cushion, including actual use of the cushion. Please take note that ordering from this web site constitutes that you accept that all sizes are an approximation.

Why Has The Delivery Of My Order Been Delayed?

Billing Information


Does CustomCushions.com Collect Taxes?
CustomCushions.com is obligated to collect any state sales tax when shipping to an in-state address. If the delivery address of your order is within the state of California, CustomCushions.com will automatically include a sales tax charge.


How Is My Credit Card Charged?
The charge applied to your credit card should match the total in the email confirmation you received from CustomCushions.com when you placed your order.

If you see what looks like multiple charges on your credit card within the first 48 hours after your order, it is most likely more than one approval as a result of clicking the "Complete Order" button multiple times. When this happens, your credit card company confirms that you have enough credit for your transaction.

There will ultimately only be one actual transaction, and any extra approvals will disappear. You can confirm this with your credit card company.

If your credit card company does indeed confirm multiple charges for the same order ("settlements" in credit card company lingo), or if you have any other question about billing discrepancies, please visit our Contact Us form for additional help.
