First of all, why is this happening: If your chaise cushion has developed a liking for levitation, no worries! This is usually due to an uneven breaking-in process of the cushion itself- it actually has to do with the cushion filling more often than not.

Sadly, it's a necessary evil of chaise cushion upkeep.

  • Grip-enhancing spray: Give your chaise cushion a little extra grip with a spray-on grip enhancer. Yes, this magical spray adds a velvety layer of stickiness, ensuring your cushion stays put without any funny business.
  • Weighted cushion anchor: Show that rebellious cushion who's boss by using a weighted cushion anchor. Secondly, these clever anchors come in various shapes. From adorable weights, to stylish decorative objects, and they'll keep your cushion securely in place while adding a touch of flair to your sectional sofa bed!
