Regardless of the time of year or weather her my children love to be outdoors playing in the garden. As a result I find myself outside a lot of the time too. Having spent a fair amount of time renovating our garden this year I jumped at the opportunity to review an item for Sloane & Sons.
Sloane & Sons offer high quality teak benches outdoor furniture as well as outdoor furnishings. Having had issues with back again this year a cushion was the perfect garden accessory for me to review. The appearance of seating and comfort can vastly improved with a dressing of cushions.
Sloane & Sons Scatter Cushions
The Sloane & Sons scatter cushions are all handmade in England as well as being showerproof. The quality of the manufacturing is noticeable immediately upon handling the cushions. The stitching is immaculate and the piping trim work is very well done. The zip is chunky and hard wearing yet easy to open and close. Having a zip means you can remove the cover for easier cleaning if necessary. I found the cushion to be well padded, providing a lot of support whilst sitting, which my back was very appreciative of. At 40 x 40 cm the cushion is a lovely size and looked good when seated on my chairs. The material of the cushion is smooth and pleasant to the touch and isn’t the type of material that would bobble over time.
I decided to put the showerproof quality of the material to the test. After tipping a small amount of water over the cushion you could see how the cushion material instantly repelled the water. Considering the material is only deemed showerproof it did extremely well against an ongoing stream of water against it.
Apart from the very high quality of the cushions this is my favourite feature of the cushion. It means I can leave furnishings out despite possible rain, saving me time and storage. So far my cushion has braved both rain and snow but was dry again the following days for use.
A very well-built high quality cushion offering lots of comfort thanks to enhanced padding. If you’d like gardening furnishings that you can leave out even at the threat of a shower then these cushions are a fantastic purchase. I loved how the contrast of colour against my dreary grey furniture and the comfort the cushion provided. Available in 6 different colours there will sure to be one to match your garden’s colour scheme. The cushions are available for purchase on the Sloane & Sons website here with an RRP of £30 but are currently discounted and priced at £20 which I think is a great price for such a high quality handmade cushion.
