We all know that cushions are the easiest and least expensive way to spruce up a sofa or add zing to your living space – but did you know there are a few guidelines that can assist you in making fab cushion-styling choices?
Here at Sway Living, cushions are our passion….or, to be more exact; ultra-cool outdoor cushions that make you say “wow, I want!” are our passion!

UV resistance: An important asset in any outdoor accessory! Australia’s UV index in Summer is often rated as extreme. Sway Living cushions are treated with an extra UV resistance, which is a bit like sunblock for your cushions. It will help prevent sun da
