Do you have a Siesta Chair that needs to be refreshed? Give your Siesta Classic High Back Chair a new life with these authentic replacement cushions. These Siesta Chair Replacement Cushions are made in Norway by the maker of the authentic Seista Chair, which was originally designed by Ingmar Relling in 1965. Available in fabric and leather coverings, these tufted cushions will restore the look and comfort of your Siesta Chair.
The underside of the cushions has a black mesh fabric covering, which allows the air to escape from the cushion when you sit down. A zipper allows easy access into the cushion. The cushion interior consists of foam and a soft fiber wrap. The materials are encased in a white mesh fabric.
We also have the Siesta Low Back Chair Replacement Cushions. For easy reference, the low back chairs are about 32″ high while the high back chairs are about 40″ high.
How to Replace Your Siesta Cushions
Replacing the cushions on your Seista Chair is very easy. Your chair either has simple clips or ties that hold your cushions in place. Your new cushions will include clips that simply insert into the holes in the canvas to secure the cushions. No special tools required.
If you find that the cord and/or canvas of your chair is in bad shape, it can be replaced as well (with a little more work). The cords and canvas provide support for the seat and back cushions.
This item is for replacement back and seat cushions only. You will also receive replacement clips necessary for attaching the cushions to your chair. This item includes the actual cushion insert and the covering fabric/leather of your choice. Replacement arms and a replacement ottoman cushion are available as well (select those options to add them to your order). We will send the armrests and/or ottoman cushion in the same color as your selected chair cushions. You can also order a set of Siesta Chair Replacement Arms or a Siesta Ottoman Replacement Cushion independently.
Fabric & Leather Options
The Siesta Chair Replacement Cushions are available in Danish wool woven fabric and high quality top grain and full grain leathers. Read more about covering options below.
Hallingdal Fabric is a woven wool upholstery fabric is made of 70% new wool and 30% viscose. Depending on the color you choose, the fabric has either one or two yarn colors. Hallingdal creates a classic Scandinavian look and was designed by the well-known Nanna Ditzel. The Martindale test rating is 126,000 double rubs, which means that the fabric rates as extremely durable. The Martindale test assesses how many rubs is takes before the fabric begins to show signs of wear.
Scott Leather is a semi aniline leather from bovine of European origin with a lightly buffed and natural grain. The leather is dyed all the way through. It has a pigmented and protective coat that helps repel stains, oil and moisture. The result is a soft and waxy feel (although the less protected leathers below feel slightly softer). Thickness: 1.2-1.4 mm
Savoy Leather is an anilin leather, which means it is dyed through as well. Analin leathers are made from the finest hides and require less correction and processing. The result is a very soft and natural feel. Because of the natural finish, this leather more readily accepts stains and oils. Over time, when exposed to light and use, the leather develops a patina. Natural markings and irregularities of the hide can be visible on this type of leather. Thickness: 1.0-1.2 mm
Hemsen Leather has is an anilin leather with a light surface treatment. Its bareness reveals all the hide’s natural characteristics. Like the Savoy Leather, this leather will develop a patina over time and does accept oils and stains readily. This anilin leather is dyed through and it is thicker than the previous two leather options. Thickness: 1.3-1.5 mm
Elmo Rustical Leather is a high quality anilin leather. Only the finest hides sourced from Scandinavian cattle are used to create Elmo Rustical. Its natural grain varies in structure and offers outstanding comfort. It is an Aniline leather, so it is dyed through and shows more natural characteristics and markings of the hide. It has some surface protection, but will develop a patina over time with use. Thickness: 1.3-1.5 mm
