Rated 2 out of 5 by Simplicity1 HOLDS water in & dries out really SLOWLY
We live in Atlanta, GA & bought numerous chair & seat cushions in this pattern to replace our old patio cushions. It was the prettiest print I had found & I still really love the print. HOWEVER, the fabric is really funky!! It "seems" & feels like it's really good quality, but, after having it a few months now, I'm really annoyed with it.
This blue 'branches & twigs' fabric retains the water & holds it in whenever it rains!! Agh! As a result, the cushions & seats take forever to dry out, up to 2 days! #in a lot of sun!# That's saying a lot for living in HOT Atlanta & that's ridiculous! So now, everytime it rains, I have to hang the the chair cushions over our deck railing to let the water drip out & the seat cushions I have to put in a standing up position to let the water drip out. Such a nuisance & bother.
Indeed it is a beautiful print, but it's high maintenance or be willing to let it get real mildewey & moldey inside & out.
A TIP: I was told by a rep of a high end patio fabric line, spray Lysol on your patio umbrellas & cushions, it has an anti-mildew product in it that keeps even outdoor fabric from mildewing as quickly.
A couple more things, the seat cushions, should you still be able to find them in the stores, tend to flatten out rather quickly. We've only had ours 6 wks & they are already flattening.
* And, Walmart, it would be SO helpful if you would use the same names for items online as you do in the stores, it makes searching for things SOOOO much easier!! This print in the store #on the cushions tags# says, "Branches & Twigs" but online here it's called "Blue Jacobean." Hello?!? That makes a lot of sense! *
Rated 5 out of 5 by ChickyLady Great cushion for any outdoor application.
Bought 4 cushions for the big built in benches around my pool and absolutely love them. Very comfortable and are holding up very well with 2 teenage boys and many of their friends using them daily. Great value for a reasonable price!
