Question Asked:

I make cushions of various shapes and sizes and I was wondering if feather filled or polyester filled cushion pads are better? I think I prefer the feather, but I wanted to check what others would recommend before I make more and start selling them. As I would really like to make the best quality cushions I can possibly make.

I would like them to feel luxurious and comfortable, but also a cushion that will last a long time. I need something that will be suitable for going inside decorative, but usable cushions. I mainly make them for use on sofas, chairs and beds.

Would be wonderful to get a general vote on if you prefer the feather polyester foam filled cushions?

Please let me know in the comments below.

Thanks again

My friend is an interior designer, and she always tells me to use feather filled cushion pads as they look and feel more luxurious. Also, they last a lot longer and are easier to push back into shape. I will never use polyester again.

I always use feather cushion pads as they are far better quality than the polyester cushion pads.

I love feather cushion pads, they look better and last much longer than the polyester ones. I found that the polyester ones misshape over time and go all clumpy inside.
