Fillings Care Guide

To keep your seat and back cushions looking lovely and full you’ll need to be prepared to give them a good plump. If regular plumping isn’t for you, then steer away from feather seat cushions and opt for fibre or foam seats which need less attention. We only use the best quality fillings in our sofas - here is a quick guide to help you choose the right one for you. If you’d like to know more, get in touch with one of our Sofa Masters, who are happy to help.

Feather Sofa Fillings

Feather fillings have a relaxed look and are wonderfully soft. They will flatten when sat on, so need daily plumping and turning. They are more casual looking than fibre cushion. Avoid feather cushions if you have allergies.

Daily maintenance for feather cushions:

  • Drop cushions onto a clean floor or rug, onto each corner. This will circulate the feathers and draw air in.

  • Punch into shape, paying attention to the corners - this will stop the feathers clumping and becoming compacted.

  • Rotate cushions to even wear on covers and impact on feathers.

  • Relax - once your feather cushions are big and beautifully plumped, it’s time to sit down with a cuppa!

Fibre Sofa Fillings

Fibre cushions are the perfect in-between. They’re not as soft and sinky as feather, not as firm or formal as foam. They still need to be plumped and turned regulary to maintain their shape and feel comfy.

Daily maintenance for fibre cushions:

  • Drop cushions onto a clean floor or rug, onto each corner.

  • Punch into shape to help open up the fibres. Fibre cushions offer more resistance than feather so you will need to ‘tease’ open the fibres to avoid dips developing.

  • Rotate cushions to even wear on covers and filling.

  • Repeat weekly to prolong the life of your cushions and optimum comfort.

Foam Sofa Fillings

Foam seats have slightly firmer, springier feel compared to fibre. They look smarter in appearance, often slimmer, ideal for contemporary sofa styles. Foam seats are generally considered low maintenance, although do need to be turned and flipped (as you would a mattress) to avoid dips occuring.

Weekly maintenance for foam cushions:

  • Flip cushions to avoid dips developing in the centre of your seats cushions.

  • If your foam seat cushions become wedged shape towards the front of the sofa, removed from their covers and turned front to back.
