About Cushion Lab
“Work from home setup” wasn’t part of our collective vocabulary before March of 2020, when we were suddenly emailing and Zooming from couches, kitchen chairs pulled up next to beds, and laptops resting on top of pillows. It was comical until people started to develop back problems and it became clear that we were going to have to make some collective changes. That’s where Cushion Lab comes in: The certified carbon neutral company uses proprietary, high-density foam to create seat and back cushions that’ll turn even the most basic chair into the ergonomic throne of your dreams. Cushion Lab makes great pillows for sleeping, too — its carefully designed foam pillows keep your neck and body supported, no matter how you snooze.
Why we love them
Whether you’re finally getting around to upgrading your home workspace, or your chair at the office isn’t as comfortable as you remembered, Cushion Lab has you covered. At less than $100 a piece, Cushion Lab’s seat and back cushions are an economical alternative to buying a new chair that’s either functional but unattractive, or stylish but uncomfortable. Allie, a friend of KCM, is obsessed with the Pressure Relief Seat Cushion, which distributes your weight evenly without flattening out, even after hours of use. It takes away all the discomfort of long days at a desk, and is covered in a cooling, recycled-polyester fabric that’s machine-washable for easy cleaning. She says it’s transformed the way she works.
