Q: I have a great outdoor furniture set that is a little over 20 years old. The chairs are very comfortable but they need new cushions. Hence, the problem.
They are Samsonite chairs and the cushions were manufactured by Hoover Industries in Florida. I have tried to touch base with Hoover with no luck.
Apparently, Hoover man-factured airline seat cushions and covers, and I don't know that they are in the outdoor furniture business anymore.
A: Remodellers have a rule of thumb to which I adhere. When you find something you like, buy extra because next year the manufacturer will be making something "new and improved" and not the thing you like.
A few years ago, I built a window seat with bookcases underneath the back of our kitchen.
My wife was easily able to find someone to make pillows for the window seat from material she bought at a fabric store. You might find something you like going this route.
Makers of foam mattresses often custom-make cushions for seating areas.
