There’s no need to shell out a fortune for custom-made outdoor cushions with so many excellent, high-quality options on the market. Whether you’re looking to outfit a large outdoor sectional or a simple outdoor bistro set, cushions are available in every color and pattern under the sun, often in a range of sizes to get the perfect fit. If it sounds like the easiest decorating project you’ll undertake this summer, that’s because it is. Read on for our top recommendations on the best outdoor cushions to buy now before they’re out of stock.
What to Consider
Outdoor cushions are typically covered in polyester, olefin, and Sunbrella fabric. They’re water- and fade-resistant to varying degrees, and, generally speaking, durability increases with price. Depending on the look and comfort level you want, cushions are tailored (often with boxed corners) or tufted, and come with and without piping. Extras to look out for include ties or elastic to secure cushions to seats, and covers that are removable and reversible. They’re often sold in sets, though don’t assume you’re getting a deal by buying in bulk, as it’s more about convenience.
How We Chose
Every cushion we feature has a rating of at least 4.5 stars, and our selection covers styles that work with a range of outdoor furniture you may have, including sectionals, dining chairs, and lounge chairs. Almost all of our picks come in multiple color and size options and come in sets, plus they’re specifically made for outdoor use. We also offer cushions across price points, and the majority are $100 or less.

The cushions come in a rainbow of colors and neutral shades, and they’re available in three sizes.
