What is sofa cushion refilling?
Sofa cushion filling services replace old, saggy looking sofa cushions infills with a new feather, fibre or foam inserts.
For the best fit, it is recommended you send your covers off to our specialist. Our upholsterer will refill the cushions and send them back to you.
Most people replace their infills as it is cheaper than buying a new sofa. It reduces waste (stops a whole sofa(s) going to landfill) and is also better for the environment.
British made foam is the best and longest-lasting refill technique as it springs back and does not need constant plumping, rearranging or flipping.
Can I get my leather sofa cushions refilled?
You can get many types of sofa cushions refilled including leather, canvas, fabric and any other type of upholstery fabric. As long as the covers are removable and zipped, the cushion cover can refills.

What is fibre and stockinette on a sofa cushion?
Fibre (other names: wadding & dacron) is a poly fibre wrapping laminated to foam; it used to add padding to a foam insert so that covers do not sag. Note: keep in mind, as it is cheaper than foam and overtime it will compress. Good practice to use one layer of fibre on all sides of a sofa cushion.
Stockinette is a thin netting covered over the foam and fibre parcel to hold it all together. It is sometimes tied on (poor craftsmanship) but should be overlocked (sewing type) onto each cushion.
Foam variations for cushions?
Be sure the foam you get of your new cushions is British made (superior quality and will last a lot longer) & meets British fire standard BS5852. It will not only protect your home insurance should there be a fire, but it could also be the difference between keeping your family safe in the event of a fire in the home.
CertiPur foam is also preferable if possible as it has been tested for toxins and is better for you and your family’s health.
