Whether your cushions just need a simple fabric update or need a full-replacement due to mold, mildew, and wear & tear, Summer Classics has a solution for you.
You will be surprised about how big of an impact this small update can make to your patio furniture! To help get you started, Summer Classics has put together a guide for replacing your outdoor cushions — enjoy!
5 Things to Know About Replacing Your Outdoor Cushions
1. Made in the USA
Summer Classics proudly designs and manufacturers all outdoor cushions in-house with operating facilities located in Birmingham, AL producing up to 2,000 custom-made cushions per day.
Designing and producing outdoor cushions right here in the United States allows for YOU, our customer, to have a more customized, luxurious look while giving you the ability to replace your outdoor cushions very easily.
2. Cushion Patterns Available Forever
Although Summer Classics creates new designs every year, we save cushion patterns for every product and frame we have ever sold. Meaning that you can replace any outdoor cushion for any Summer Classics frame dating back to the early 2000s, making it easier than ever for you to update your patio furniture!
What if you don’t own Summer Classics furniture, but would like to update your cushions with Summer Classics cushions? No worries! All you need to do is reach out to your local Summer Classics dealer, or SC Home store location and give them your furniture dimensions. Once they have those, they can look back in the cushion pattern library to see if there is something that will match to fit your frame.
3. Choose Your Cushion Core: Dream or Standard
Another reason why updating your outdoor cushions is so easy with Summer Classics is because of the different choices offered for both high-value and low-value amounts. That being said, Summer Classics offers two options for cushion core replacements that can please both dollar values.
The first being the Standard Cushion. This is the cushion that Summer Classics originally designed all of its frames with, comprised of a polyfill core providing a firmer seat. The Standard Cushion is offered on any Summer Classics frame and is reasonably priced; however, these are known to flatten out over time and provide more visual benefits than they do functional comfort.
For a higher dollar value and longer lasting cushion, you have the option to upgrade to the Dream Cushion. Our Dream Cushion is what sets us apart as this breathable, fluted pillow top construction rests above 1.8-mm density premier foam, wrapped in a water-resistant jacket to help against mold and mildew. No matter what collection you prefer, the Dream Cushion answers the call for comfort and long-lasting durability.

4. Hundreds of Fabric Choices
Everyone knows that patio furniture cushions can begin to fade and forlorn after a few seasons, especially if they receive direct sun. You can easily spruce up your patio by replacing your outdoor cushions for fresh ones covered in a stylish yet durable fabric.
Quality fabrics will perform season after season, rapidly paying for themselves in function and longevity. Summer Classics offers 140+ fabric choices, comprised of the latest color trends, patterns, and solids that can help bring your outdoor furniture back to life.
Not to mention that all of Summer Classics fabrics are exclusive to us only, meaning that you cannot find them anywhere else. These high-tech textiles, made by Sunbrella are always a worthy investment when replacing your outdoor cushions.

A new Yelp review for our store “Summer Classics – Charlotte ” at 1308 W Morehead St in Charlotte, NC. : “I recently ordered replacement cushions for my discontinued Summer Classics Tuscany furniture from Stephanie in the Charlotte store. I couldn’t go to the store in person and was thrilled to be able to inquire about the replacements over the phone. Stephanie was prompt in replying with price estimates using the fabric I chose from their many options, which I viewed online. Much to my surprise, the cushions arrived much earlier than anticipated and are just perfect! Our Tuscany furniture is in great condition, even after six years of constant use, and we were so happy to be able to update the cushions, even though the Tuscany line had been discontinued. Thank you, Stephanie, for the great service and the follow-up email when they shipped. Also, thank you, Summer Classics, for providing the replacement cushion service (which was more reasonable than having them done by a local upholstery company). They are wonderful! “
