Bar stool cushions are usually only 1–2 inches thick, and usually require a high resiliency foam that can last a long time. As a result, we recommend our Everflex V54 for firm bar stool cushions, and V44 for medium-firm bar stool cushions.
Bar stool cushions often do not require dacron batting. While we generally do recommend batting to give seat cushions a fuller, more luxurious look (not to mention a more padded and comfortable feel), it’s not always necessary for a bar stool cushion. Just be aware that without dacron batting, your cushion will be more “squared off” and look a little less padded and full than it would with batting. Also, the thinner the cushion (2 inches or less) the more that batting will help it provide a little extra cushion that might make your bar stool cushion more comfortable.
