Guide to Cushion Inserts

May 01, 2019 4 Comments

Need help navigating all the options? Here's a brief rundown of our cushion collection and the differences between the products.

Down Cushions are very soft, sinky and lightweight. If you like a malleable, squishy cushion, one of these may be for you:

Our White Goose Down Cushions are filled with 575+ loft goose down.

White Down Cushions are filled with 550+ loft duck down.

Feather Cushions are very supportive, firm, and hefty. If you like a bulkier, more resilient cushion, try one of these:

White Goose Feather Cushions are our best-sellers, filled with small white goose feather.

Our White Feather Cushions are filled with small white duck feather.

Down Perfect Cushions are the best of both worlds. They have an inner feather core to provide firmness and support, and outer chambers filled with down to provide softness and luxury. 

Our Down Perfect Cushions are filled with small white goose feather (core) and 575+ loft goose down (outer layer). 

Down Alternative Cushions are filled with a soft polyester that mimics the properties of down. If you're looking for a soft, sinky cushion that is machine washable, or if you have allergies to down and feather, these might be a good fit.

Gel Microfiber Down Alternative Cushions are filled with a fluffy microfiber polyester.

There are a few commonalities between all of our cushions - they're all hypoallergenic, filled in Toronto, and made 1/2" over-sized for a snug fit in your cushion covers

Hi, I am looking to have a down and feather cushion made. The dimensions are 20 × 20 × 5 and I just need it covered in ticking because it’s going to go into an already made cover. Can you provide a quote for that? Thank you
