The dining room table is a communal place to eat meals, share stories, play games, and more. When you need comfortable, durable, high-quality dining room chair cushions, FoamOrder is here to help. We’ve been helping customers design and replace the cushions in their dining areas for over 20 years, so whether you’re in need of traditional dining chair cushions or dining bench cushions, we offer the Internet’s largest selection of foam types, firmnesses and treatments to make everything just right. You can select from a wide variety of standard shapes, or, trace and send us a pattern to get the exact shape and thickness you need. We also offer a full range of fabrics for dining chair cushions, most notably our Sunbrella® line of durable, stain-resistant fabrics.
Dining chair cushions are usually on the thinner side, often from 1–3 inches thick. Most important is to make sure that the thickness and firmness of the foam work together to provide maximum comfort. This means that if your cushions are thin (1–2 inches), you need firmer foam (Everflex V54 for example) to make sure you and your guests don’t “bottom out” and hit the wooden surface of the chair. For dining room chair cushions that get everyday use, we recommend high-density polyurethane foam (our Everflex™ foam). For dining chair cushions that get used less often, our medium-density Econoflex™ foam should work just fine.
Dacron wrap is optional for dining chair cushions. Dacron batting is primarily to give a cushion a fuller look and a bit of extra padding, so if your dining chair cushion doesn’t need that, you can forego dacron wrap. If you do want the fuller look and extra comfort that dacron provides, we’d suggest a bookwrap treatment for a dining chair cushion.
We recommend that the height of dining chair seat cushions be between 18" and 20" from the floor. Any taller than this and shorter people won’t be able to rest their feet comfortably on the floor. Dining chair cushions are usually only 1–3 inches thick, so choose a thickness that will provide the proper seat height for you and your guests, taking the table height into account.
