Suggestions for replacement sofa cushion foam

Posted by beemer (My Page) on

I have a sofa and loveseat I purchased less than 4 years ago, and the foam seat cushions are flat, flat, flat!!!

I should be able to just cut foam and zip the old cover over them, but what kind of foam should I be getting? Is there a specific weight or firmness to get?

I know memory foam is a no-no, and the craft stores around here dont have foam over 3" thick. Any ideas on where to get the proper foam?

I just took my flat cushions to the local upholstery shop, and they took care of the replacement foam.
Sadly I can't remember the specifics....

Most upholsterers will be able to do this for you.

You can also order foam, cut to your specs, from some suppliers, but then you will have to wrap with Dacron, and muslin, if desired.
