Foam 

We work with a wide range of upholstery foam from low, medium and high-density in standard or luxury loft to reticulated foam for outdoor use. Our foam cushions are wrapped in dacron and stockinette. Dacron helps to add extra loft, helps to provide you with a fuller and firmer feeling cushion, and stockinette makes it easier to insert and remove your cushions from its covers. Every piece of foam is cut to your custom requirements and professionally wrapped to ensure longevity.

How to Measure 

We help and guide you on how best to measure the space. We would prefer you to send us a photo of the area first so we can get a clear vision on how to guide you, or alternatively we offer a measuring service to local customers. We usually will request the length, width and any diametre or thickness of the space. You will need a tape measure and a means to write or note your measurments down. For cushion reupholstery, we need to get the most accurate representation possible so we would ideally ask for you to send us the original cushion covers in the post for us to use as a rough template alongside measurements from the original foam.
