French mattress cushions

French mattress cushions bring back a feeling of bygone years. They are a fantastic way to bring charm, character and comfort!
The tufted edge is sewn into the stuffing by hand  while keeping an even stitch length along the side of the mattress.  This is what give it that nice scalloped appearance. The top and botton of the mattress are tufted.  We use very strong nylon upholstery cording to coordinate with the fabric. On occcasion we may use waxed polyester thread if the appropriate coloured twine is not available.
Each mattress is made with a good quality medium to medium/heavy weight fabric for durabilty.  We often suggest using a medium/heavy weight upholstery fabric or indoor/outdoor (such as Sunbrella) for those cushions placed in areas of heavier use (kitchen's, playrooms, outdoor benches etc.) Check out our fabrics using our Fabrics link.

These french mattress cushions were created for a custom barge on the east coast.  They were made with a sturdy blue and off white woven cotton ticking with a depth of 6 inches.  The fill was high loft polyester allowing for a full, plump cushion. Super inviting and very versatile as great for occasional seating and dining.

This picture illustrates the versatility of these cushions!
