Your outdoor living room can, and should, be as beautiful and inviting as any room inside the house.  Outdoor furniture gives you the opportunity to add complementary colours & materials in the way of scatter cushions, rugs, throws, lanterns & décor.

It is important to decorate using all-weather rugs and scatter cushions, let me tell you why!

An outdoor scatter cushion, or throw pillow as they are sometimes called, are made from quality outdoor fabrics that are waterproof or water repellant and don’t absorb moisture from the air.  In our Queensland climate, the humidity can cause mould and mildew to grow on fabrics and look unsightly and cause illness.

Purchasing fade resistant outdoor cushions is also important.  The suns rays are damaging, and you don’t want to be buying more cushions again next year after the sun has faded all the colours in your cushions.  Help your bank balance and our landfill by purchasing outdoor scatter cushions for your outdoor living room.

A premium outdoor cushion will have premium filling, which will help the cushion to keep its shape and won’t distort or bulge after you lean on or lay down on it.  Who wants that uncomfortable ending!

Cleaning outdoor scatter cushions is super simple!  As easy as wiping the covers over with a wet cloth, or a soapy wet cloth if there is something stuck on it.  You can also wash the covers on a gentle cycle in the machine and line dry them straight away.  

Outdoor scatter cushions come in a huge assortment of colours, prints & stripes. Many are also reversible so that you can change the look quickly & easily.
