Window Seats

Creating a window seat is often most people’s first real attempt at upholstery that involves any kind of sewing. As an upholsterer for years the one mistake most customer make is they misunderstand the finished thickness of the window seat cover. They will often assume that the depth of the border on the cushion in the finished thickness. They then are disappointed when the cover looks baggy.

If you have a bay, box or cabinet window seat and are looking for a replacement inner, cover or a completely new made to measure cushion for your seating area, then we have the expertise to create your custom shaped cushions and covers, cured or angled to any size.

We offer help and advice with every aspect of creating your bespoke window seat cushion, from choosing styles, fillings, and fabrics, to making templates and measuring your seating area.

Our bespoke service is tailored to providing everything you need when it comes to creating your dream seat cushions and covers, so why not contact us and see what we can do for you.

Window seats have been around since centuries when tall narrow sash windows were popular. Since then we have seen window seats in kitchen areas, children’s playrooms, master bedrooms and more commonly, living rooms. They are cosy nooks that allow us to sit and unwind. They are great for sipping hot chocolate on a cold winter day or just reading a book while the sunlight peeps through. But a window seat just isn’t complete without a custom window seat cushion. They are the ultimate addition to any window seat area because they add even more comfort and relaxation.

Most window seat cushions will be exposed to the sunlight part or most of the day so it’s important to have durable fade-resistant fabric for your cushions and pillows when they are in direct sunlight. We use fabric with solution-dying which is a process that allows the colour to be added to the fibres during the liquid state so the colour will saturate the fibres all the way through and will not fade. Sunbrella and Outdura fabrics come with a warranty against fading and loss of strength.
