Hype or the real deal - Pocket coil foam cushions
I've noticed that over the last few years many of the middle/lower middle sofa companies have been switching over to foam enclosed pocket coil cushions. Broyhill, Lane, Bauhuas, Jackson/Catnapper, Best Home Furnishings, and others have gone to these in many models. I imagine they cost more than the usual 1.8 or 2.0 high density cushions normally found in this range so its interesting that they have gone to this as standard and not just as an upgrade. The manufacturers claim they are more durable over time, leading to much fewer warranty claims, as exhibited by this sheet for Leggett & Platt's Soft Luxe version which some of these companies utilize:
It demonstrates in their testing that there was substantially less cushion breakdown over time. However, this kind of data coming from the company making it isn't always reliable. I am curious what people's real world experience has been with this? Have they held up as the claims indicate? Have people seen cushions of this type from some manufacturers perform better than others? Also do people think this is just the latest fad/trend or will we see this type of cushion continue to gain ground in the market long term?
