Seat cushions are created in one of the following four fill options:
A less costly tight seat construction can be achieved using layers of polyurethane foam and polyester fibers.There are four grades of high-resilience density foam cores to choose from, each crowned with super soft high-resiliency foam that provides initial softness and deep seating support. This cushion filling is the best of both worlds with the resilience and stability of foam wrapped in channeled and feather-filled down-proof ticking.The foam cushion requires minimum maintenance and gives a neat appearance, though with age and use the foam will soften.
A spring down cushion is ideal for those who prefer a seating feel that is not too firm or too soft. It is made with a coiled spring core, covered in foam then wrapped in channeled and feather-filled down-proof ticking. The foam and spring combination offers a resilient feel while the feather batting adds softness. You’ll have to commit to some regular fluffing and cushion rotation to maintain structure, but the maintenance is far less than with an all feather and down cushion.
A more affordable yet plush seating experience is achieved using a spring unit enclosed in polyurethane foam then edged on the front with polyester fiber. This core is placed in an envelope filled on top and bottom with a blend of waterfowl feathers and white duck down. This seat offers comfort and softness, yet the springs help to maintain the cushion’s shape and crown.Spring fiber cushions should be fluffed and rotated periodically.
All feather and down cushions are the ultimate for softness, as well as environmental sensitivity. A channeled down-proof ticking is sewn then completely filled with high quality down and feathers. Frequent fluffing and rotation is required to preserve structure and appearance.
