Made in the USA: Pillows and Chair Cushions

Monday, July 29th, 2013

Have you seen our full line of Country Outdoor Decor?  These items are featured exclusively on the Sturbridge Yankee Workshop website, which means you won’t find them in the pages of our catalog.  Today, we are featuring indoor/outdoor pillows and chair cushions in new patterns and colors.

Versatility, All Year Long

Our toss pillows and chair cushions are equally suited for use in your living room or on your porch.  They are made right here in the USA of spun polyester with the look and feel of cotton.  The fabric is weather resistant to withstand outdoor elements; you do not need to worry about leaving them outside when the seasons change.

To the left, we see our Red Pinwheel Toss Pillow, a cheerful addition to any room.  With dotted circles of blue and white atop a bold red background, this fabric will look and feel festive year round.  This bright pillow coordinates with our Red Pinwheel Chair Cushion for a cohesive look.  Delight your guests with these cushy additions to your wooden rockers and dining chairs.

Easy to Use Meets Easy To Clean

Love the look of bright colors on your porch, but worried about how long they will last?  Here’s a hint: keeping your outdoor textiles clean is the easiest way to ensure that they will last.  When you are ready to wash your pillows or chair cushions, use a combination of half water, half mild soap or detergent.  Do not use bleach.

For best results, let your pillows and chair cushions air dry by propping them up outside, or by hanging them on a clothesline.  Rotate the pillows occasionally to ensure even drying.

Our Black Tropical Chair Cushion, seen to the right, and matching Toss Pillow, will make you feel like you are living the island life right in your own backyard.

A Range of Pattern Options to Suit Your Needs

We have all heard the phrase, ‘Less is More’, but when you are decorating your home this year, it does not hurt to think ‘more’ when choosing your colors and fabrics.  Our featured pillows and chair cushions offer varying color palettes that will work with all types of decor.  With a wide array of colors and interesting patterns, like our Black Watercolor Toss Pillow here on the left, our indoor/outdoor textiles are sure to fit with your style.
