For Back Cushions
Cushions in any room have the ability to make or break your experience and enjoyment at the moment. Have you ever found yourself feverously fluffing up your sagging and limb back cushions before your friends arrive for an enjoyable evening? Or after that evening, when walking back through the same room do you notice that your cushions are in even worse shape than before? Back cushions are the bane of upholsterers for this very reason. The lack of support and the sheer absence of structure in your back cushions is frustrating, to say the least. We have found in our years of experience as upholsterers that one of the best solutions for this persistent problem is to add foam inserts in your back cushions. Foam not only adds structure and support to your back cushions, but it also is a longer-term solution compared to other options. Through tests, we have found 18 (1.8) Density foam to be the perfect density compared to 26 (2.6) Density. Even though 26 Density is higher in quality, 18 Density offers a softer and more comfortable feel. And since back cushions do not take nearly as much abuse as seat cushions, these will last for years to come.
For Seat Cushions.
Your living room is only as good as the cushions you enjoy your time on. Think about how often you find yourself lounging around on your favorite sofa or chair, sinking in after a long day’s work! And all the memories you have with family and friends there as well. With a lot of more memories to come! Especially when a sofa should give you about 20 – 25 years of use. And in all frankness, well within that time frame, your cushions take a lot of abuse! Kids jumping up and down on them, or that time you were sick and spent a whole week squirming around on the sofa. That holiday where the whole family (all 26) piled on and around the sofa for that last photo. Your cushions are troopers, however, after a while, they start showing signs of wear and tear. Nowadays, that time when your cushions decide to throw in the towel is happening sooner then it should. Furniture manufacturers are using inferior foam in their furniture, which cuts cost for them and cuts the memories short for you. Replacing your foam is not an easy task though if you are not forewarned about the pitfalls of some foam suppliers. Foam is based on a density system which means the density of the foam is measured, and that measurement denotes the quality. The higher the density, the higher the quality of the foam and the longer it will last. This foam, in particular, is 26 density (also known as 2.6), which is on the higher end when it comes to quality. To put that in perspective the industry standard is 18 (also known as 1.8), which will not hold up nearly as long. Not knowing this, many people have changed their cushions just to find themselves in the same shoes a short while later. In contrast, this foam is higher in density so it will be able to take all the abuse that we all dish out to our cushions. This means more memories and a longer lasting sofa, chair, or whatever parking spot you claim as yours!
