It does not matter how well designed and comfortable your swing is, a pile of plush pillows will make them so much more fun to enjoy. Cushions will allow you a lovely afternoon nap, your kids a soft nest to snuggle in, and your garden or porch a needed touch of color. You have probably made a wise decision and bought a swing that is weather resistant and can be left to the whims of the nature. You have to think about weather when buying your outdoor throw pillows as well. There are all sort of pillow fillings, but you need the kind that allows rain to pass straight through, leaving the foam filling dry. Pillow covers also have to be moisture resistant, so that you do not have to go running and collecting pillows from your garden at the first sign of rain. There is a whole range of outdoor pillow covers that are perfect for swings, resistant to rain and resistant to strong sun. But, noting is resistant to sticky kids's fingers and spilled ice-cream, so make sure your pillow covers are easy to remove and throw into the washer.
