Chair Pillow Sizing Guide

One Common mistake we see is people buying pillows too small for their chairs.  Once a pillow cover is filled with an insert the dimensions tend to change (they appear smaller across but deeper) so keep that in mind when choosing a size.

Here is our Guide we go by:

  • Square pillow: Measure the seat width.  We recommend choosing a pillow cover within the range of the pillow seat minus 4 inches to the same size as the seat width.  Also make sure the height of the pillow is equal or up to 4 inches shorter that the back of the chair
    • ex. Seat width is 20 inches, choose a square pillow ranging from 16x16 inches to 20x20 inches
  • Lumbar Pillow: We recommend  choosing a pillow cover either the same width as the seat or up to 4 inches wider
    • Ex. Seat width is 20 inches, choose a lumbar pillow width ranging from 20 inches to 24 inches
