10 of the best garden cushions

Spruce up your seats with BBC Gardeners' World's guide to garden cushions.

Small but crucial, a good garden chair cushion can be a vital part of your garden design.

Garden furniture is usually hardwood or hard-wearing polywicker – practical and beautiful, but not always the most comfortable. Garden furniture cushions can make your garden a little cosier, bringing an indoor luxury into your green spaces.

Garden chair cushions also add a splash of colour to decking, patios, and conservatories that can compliment your planting as well as the wider aesthetics of your garden.

We’ve curated a list of some of the best garden furniture cushions, with a range of colours, designs, and materials – including a few waterproof cushions, in case your garden gets caught in a sudden shower. Whether you’re just looking for a homely place to rest, or a designer cushion to set your patio apart, we’ve got a spectrum of styles, sizes, and shapes to suit a range of needs and prices.

For somewhere to place these cushions, check out our guides to the best deck chairs, garden egg chairs, and garden sofas.
