Every Carlyle piece is available with an endless array of combinations of cushion arrangements. There are no limitations on the number of seat or back cushions, regardless of size or style. For instance, any piece that is traditionally made with three seats and three backs can be made with two instead. Sometimes the number and combination of seats and backs dramatically affect the yardage required for a proper match. On bench seats and tight backs, one way to avoid unwanted seams is the use of “mock welting”. Always talk to a Carlyle Design Consultant. Pictured is only a small fraction of the available arrangements.
Because comfort and style is entirely subjective, Carlyle offers over 40 cushion fill combinations, backed by our exclusive 30-DAY COMFORT GUARANTEE. Any piece can be ordered with any combination of seat and back cushions, such as spring and poly seats with 70% down / 30% feather backs. As a rule, back cushions are cut 3” to 4” above the back of the frame for added neck support and to compensate for any seat sinkage. Standard “cushion border” sizes vary by model but all can be specified.
are standard on all pieces. Standard but by no means ordinary, these seats and backs can be adjusted to achieve the perfect combination of styling, cushioning, and support. Firmness, softness, and height can be adjusted for both seats and backs.

are custom-blended from only the finest Hungarian goose and gray duck families. Feather quills should curl for resilience and should never exceed 2.5”. Any percentage & combination of down and feather, as well as the origin of the waterfowl, can be custom-ordered. The listed percentage & combinations are the most popular.
10 % down / 90 % feather
25 % down / 75 % feather
50 % down / 50 % feather
70 % down / 30 % feather
Remember, the higher the percentage of down, the softer and more expensive the cushion, and the greater the maintenance required. Any “all down and feather” cushion must be fluffed regularly to maintain its shape and loft. Because Carlyle manufactures all of its own down and feather products, we are fully committed to the maintenance of any of our cushions and/or its replacement, which means you will never have to be uncomfortable again. (After the normal warranty period, there is a nominal fee)
is a polyurethane core usually of a 1.9 density, wrapped with a generous, baffled-channeled blanket of the specified combination of down and feather. The foam core provides a firm and even center, while the down and feathers add soft and lofty support.
is simply an independently suspended spring core system wrapped with a heavy, baffle channeled blanket of specified down and feather. This cushion provides the ultimate combination of luxurious seating support, shape retention and overall seating longevity.
All cushions, regardless of composition or manufacturer, will wear and break down with use. A good rule of thumb is to always contract with a firm that is capable of servicing it’s own products and components.
