Recently, within Australia, there has been a massive shift for outdoor seat cushions manufacturers in a lot of different industries to move their operations offshore. Of course this is a sound economic decision, but when one-off, custom made outdoor cushions are concerned, it simply just doesn’t work.
When it comes to outdoor chair cushions or outdoor chair cushions here in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, Australia, there appeared to be a fairly large gap in the market. Sure, if you are looking for a run of the mill, standard size outdoor furniture cushions or outdoor cushion cover, you will find them everywhere.
But what about a replacement outdoor chair cushions made to your own style and size?
Sam & Daymon Rogers, owners of Cushion Factory, saw that there were many people throughout Australia who were just unable to achieve a great look in and outside their homes whilst not spending a large amount of money. There had to be a way to offer quality outdoor cushions and outdoor seat cushions at affordable prices, using a simple online process and through Showrooms.
With many people becoming increasingly wary of the standard cushions (since most fade, tear, or come apart after just one season of use), our first aim was to provide a range of affordable fabrics, some of which carry a 5-year warranty against fading and loss of durability. Check! Secondly was to find a team of professional seamstresses who specialise in making cushions with these awesome fabrics. Check! Our third item on the agenda was to create a vision where we could provide a great product, on time, with customer service that would exceed the expectations of even the most discerning customer. Check!
Thus, Cushion Factory was created!
Cushion Factory now sells thousands of Sunbrella Outdoor Cushions each year to individuals, hotels, cafes, restaurants, bars and resorts across Australia, in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. We have earned an enviable reputation as being THE go-to, outdoor cushions manufacturer in Australia and we would appreciate the opportunity to help you create cushions you can’t wait to relax in.

OWNERS / MANAGERS
Hi, I’m Sam and fortunate enough to manage our awesome sales and admin guys and the marketing side of the business. As co-founder of Cushion Factory, I’m very grateful to have such a great team who have made Cushion Factory what it is today. I love being creative with social media posts, but I’m a spreadsheet die-hard really!
I’m Daymon and my role is to head of our Production team, ensuring all of the behind the scenes details of each cushion are met on time and on budget. I’m a co-founder of Cushion Factory, where in its very early days, I did everything from cutting fabric and foam, sewing and delivering cushions. I love the challenges that tricky cushions can bring and enjoy watching my beloved Dockers during footy season.
Hi. I’m Bec, based in our Sydney store and I’m an admitted cushion addict (take a look at all of the throw pillows in the store!) I am on top of all the latest trends & colours and take great pleasure in helping our customers zone in on what they need and want for their space – always giving common sense advice to suit your unique home. Fun fact about me is that I speak Mandarin.
What I like most about my job is that I get to help people make beautiful spaces they will enjoy spending time in. I bring to the table good listening skills and a background in fine art, furniture and furnishings and an Anglo / French flair. When I’m not helping people with their cushions, Disco is my thing.
