Gave up on the 'deep seating' patio cushions 6 years ago. Other than in the dry west, or under covered areas, the need to anticipate every potential cloudburst and gather up cushions and pillows to store, then return them, became a drudgery. If away, or when forgetting the chore, you then need to tip up the cushions to drain, and even those 'quick dry' ones really aren't. Looks fabulous in photos, but too much bother.

Good comments. Thank you. I appreciate hearing the way it really is, which is never what we hear from salespeople.

I agree with kitykat’s post above. We live in the Central Valley of California, what would be considered the”dry west,” and I can tell you, those deep-seating patio sofas and chairs look fab in displays and print ads, but just try sitting in one of them during our warm weather months (May through October!) They are too hot and stuffy to be comfortable.
