Best Chair Pads

Furnishing your home–both indoors and outside–is all about blending style and comfort. Many dining chair sets, desk chairs, and outdoor seats come without one of those much-needed factors–comfort. Plain wood and industrial metal seats are often visually appealing, but they lack the comfort feature of including built-in cushions. So, the next time you can't resist those antique chairs from the thrift store or you find a bargain for an outdoor bench at a yard sale, make sure you enhance both the look and comfort factor by snagging some quality chair pads. We've compiled a selection of some of the best and most comfy chair pads to make the process a little easier for you.

This modern design of a traditional chair cushion features updated materials like memory foam and non-skid backing for an ultra-comfortable, classical pad that enhances the look and feel of a variety of chairs.

What We Liked

When it comes to looks, these Arlee Tyler chair pads aren’t much different than what you'd expect to see at your grandmother's dining room table with their classic tufted design. But that's where the comparison ends. These pads use quality memory foam to enhance comfort and back support by contouring to your body. They also feature a non-skid microdot backing that's skid-resistant to ensure the pads don't shift or slip from wood, metal, and even plastic chairs. They're available in alloy gray, aqua, bamboo tan, and burgundy red. They come in sets of two 16 x 16-inch cushions. Buy them here. 

Most Comfortable

Neutral-Colored, Casual, and Thick

These chair pads are filled with Klear Vu CloudFill signature stuffing and are made with a triple-blend of durable fabric that's easy to clean. They come in either a 2- or 4-pack of neutrally-colored, classic design cushions.

What We Liked

Featuring a 4-tack tufting and classical neutral colors, these chair cushions from Klear Vu are great for enhancing the comfort and aesthetic of more traditional and antique-oriented seating arrangements. The signature CloudFill stuffing blown into the shells of each cushion provides superior comfort and nearly 3 inches of support between you and the hard-surfaced chair you use it on. Despite the relatively traditional aesthetic, these pads feature a furniture-safe gripper backing to keep each pad in place without the use of traditional cushion ties. Get them now.
