When it comes to internal sofa parts, the sofa frame and spring system aren’t the only important elements. Upholstery filling—whether high density cushion foam, hollowfibre filling, feather and down or a mixture of any or all—is the second half of the sofa’s internal construction and equally important.

Sofa Fillings: The Basics

Sofa fillings are varied in type, material and outcome so, depending on what you want from your sofa, there are many options to choose from. Three of the most important things to known about sofa fillings are:

— Their ability to provide the adequate support

— Their loft (or filling power determined by the number of cubic inches one ounce fills)

— The combination options e.g. a blend of feather and down, feather, down and fibre or down-wrapped foam cushions

Stuffing

Before foam filling existed, stuffing was used ubiquitously in traditional sofa upholstery and sometimes it is, still, used today. It is often used in conjunction with other fillings but is independently prized for its natural-feel comfort and ability to fill small and difficult spaces.

Coir - Types of Sofa Stuffing - The Sofa Guide - LuxDeco.com

Coir

Coir is a material processed from the natural husk of coconuts and bristle coir (the longer fibres) was a popular stuffing material for upholstery before the advent of synthetic and foam fillings. It was used as an alternative to animal hair stuffing and is sustainable, economical, has a low decomposition rate and is stronger (but not as flexible) as cotton. Coir isn't used much these days but it may become more popular again for those interested in eco-friendly and healthy alternatives to synthetic fillings.

Down Filling - Types of Sofa Stuffing - The Sofa Guide - LuxDeco.com

Down Filling

Composed of tiny tangled filaments, down is the soft, insulating under-plumage of birds. It is known for its loft, warmth and softness. Generally, pure goose down is the finest used for luxury sofas because of its large clusters and cling (the tendency of down filaments to stick together) and, as such, commands a high price point. However, Eiderdown—the rare and expensive down from the Eider duck—is renowned for being very dense and is the most desirable of all downs. Down cushions need regular plumping.

Feather Filling

Feathers come from the hardier overcoat of birds. They have a central quill with filaments on either side and come in varying lengths, textures and types which determines their cost and quality. Flight feathers—the outermost wing feathers—are straight and inflexible and not ideal for upholstery. Body feathers are light and curled and provide excellent loft. White feathers wrapped in a tightly woven fabric casing represents the ideal standard for luxury upholstery fillings. Feather cushions need regular plumping.

Horsehair - Types of Sofa Stuffing - The Sofa Guide - LuxDeco.com

Horsehair

A rarely used, traditional sofa filling, horsehair is collected from trimmed horse tails and manes. The hair is processed, turning the straight, glossy strands into a crimped finished product many times its original volume. Horsehair provides a lot of springiness and texture to upholstery pieces. Whilst most workshops have replaced horsehair stuffing with modern fillings, some restoration work might require it. Still, a horsehair and cotton or wool blend would be preferable for the desirable properties of those fibres.

Wadding & Padding

Wadding & Padding

In chair and sofa upholstery, wadding (or batting) is used in conjunction with foam to soften cushion edges, produce the rounded top—known as the crown—of a cushion, to prevent friction between the core foam and upholstery fabric and to compensate for any slackness in fabric as it stretches over time. Here are the wadding options you should know:

Here are the wadding options you should know:

Cotton Wadding - Sofa Wadding & Padding - The Sofa Guide - LuxDeco.com

Cotton Wadding

Cotton wadding is produced in sheets made of layers of loosely felted or bonded staple cotton fibres and comes in various weights. Cotton wadding is naturally breathable, very soft (and it softens more with time) and is long-lasting. Its high loft (height) makes it a great option for upholstery. Cotton wadding can be affected by moisture so it is less suitable for humid climates.

Hollow-Fill-Fibre - Sofa Wadding & Padding - The Sofa Guide - LuxDeco.com

Hollow-Fill Fibre

Hollow-fill fibre is a type of polyester filling which is often used as an anti-allergy and much more affordable alternative to down and feather. It has a similar density to both and is made up of extra-fine strands of microscopic hollow tubes which trap air and produce a high loft. It is also mould-resistant so can be used for outdoor sofas.

Polyester Wadding - Sofa Wadding & Padding - The Sofa Guide - LuxDeco.com

Polyester Wadding

Polyester wadding is a category of filling which includes microfibre wadding and Dacron—the generic trademark polyester, originally created by DuPont. It is characteristically strong, stretch-resistant and, unlike some fillings, doesn’t need plumping. Polyester is also used for wrapping foam cushions. The most well-known of these is Dacron-wrapped cushions.

Wool Wadding - Sofa Wadding & Padding - The Sofa Guide - LuxDeco.com

Wool Wadding

Wool wadding is made up of loosely felted or bonded wool and is used to supplement a cotton foundation. This is because, although it is very springy, it is not as dense as cotton so it isn’t used to add bulk to a sofa. It is breathable, hypoallergenic and very long-lasting and provides protection for sofa cushion foam from UV rays which passes through upholstery fabric.

Hollow-Fill Fibre

Hollow-fill fibre is a type of polyester filling which is often used as an anti-allergy and much more affordable alternative to down and feather. It has a similar density to both and is made up of extra-fine strands of microscopic hollow tubes, extruded from a polyester solution, which trap air and produce a high loft. It is also mould-resistant so can be used for outdoor sofas.

Foams

Most upholstery foams are made of polyurethane (a combination of polyol and diisocyanate) and the term “polyurethane foam” is a generically used term which covers everything from memory foam to high density foam. Overall, foam is the firmest of all upholstery fillings although it does come in varying materials and densities.

In many countries, including the UK, these densities are distinguished by their corresponding colours—pink, white and blue. In the States, upholstery foams are given an Indentation Force Deflection (IFD) rating which denotes their firmness.

Lower IFDs are softer; higher IFDs are firmer. In high-end upholstery, multiple foams are used in a single sofa so that individual areas are given completely tailored support. UK foam manufacturers are obligated to comply with the national standards and all foams should be of a high quality.

Sofa foams made overseas don’t always have such strict regulations and, therefore, are usually of inferior quality. Inferior foams are not comfortable, do not provide adequate support and will deteriorate very quickly. Foams from overseas must be CMHR combustion modified and high resilient to comply with UK legislation.

High-Density Foam - Types of Sofa Foam - The Sofa Guide - LuxDeco.com

High-Density Foam

High-density foam is used for the initial shaping of a sofa. It is layered with other foams to allow easy shaping and for a well-rounded finish. Its name references the durability of the foam, not its firmness—many high- and medium-density foams feel similar. In the UK, it is typically blue.

Medium Density Foam - Types of Sofa Foam - The Sofa Guide - LuxDeco.com

Medium-Density Foam

Medium-density foam is often used in combination with high-density foam for a sofa’s seat and back cushion core to provide a more natural seat. It is also used for fixed seats and tight back sofas. In the UK, a medium-density foam is typically pink.

Low Density Foam - Types of Sofa Foam - The Sofa Guide - LuxDeco.com

Low-Density Foam

For high-end upholstery, low-density foam is layered with other foams for appropriate support, because of its softness and comfort. It is suitable for sofa areas which don’t have to withstand much weight or wear such as sides or arms. In the UK, a medium-density foam is typically white.

High-Resiliency Foam - Types of Sofa Foam - The Sofa Guide - LuxDeco.com

High-Resiliency Foam

High resiliency (HR) foam is the best for long-term support and durability and can come in varying densities. Sofa cushions which are made using high resiliency foam will take much longer to deteriorate than non-HR foams and won’t be prone to sagging over time.

Latex Foam - Types of Sofa Foam - The Sofa Guide - LuxDeco.com

Latex Foam

Latex foam is a natural foam made from the sap of the rubber tree. It has a natural bounce, is very responsive and, since it is made using tapped rubber tree sap, it is an extremely eco-friendly option. Its disadvantages are that it breaks down when exposed to light and air.

Memory Foam - Types of Sofa Foam - The Sofa Guide - LuxDeco.com

Memory Foam

Memory foam is polyurethane with additional chemicals which gives it its characteristic low resiliency. It moulds at body temperature making memory foam sofas comfortable and responsive, although some might prefer the bounce of a higher density foam.

What Is Sofa Sagging & How To Prevent It?

What Is Sofa Sagging & How To Prevent It?

As long as a sofa has a well-made, solid wood frame, sofa sagging should be the only way it will deteriorate over time. Sofa sagging—also known as bottoming out—happens when the sofa’s materials stretch out over time or use (in the case of webbing), start to deteriorate (in the case of foam) or compress (in the case of wool or cotton wadding).

A sagging sofa may happen eventually—however high-quality a sofa’s foam, springs and webbing are—but quality is the best way of preventing premature sagging. Always buy sofas from quality retailers who use suitable, high-quality materials appropriate for its intended use. Low-quality foams will lose shape and quickly begin to break down or turn so brittle that they can be turned into powder.

Bad initial sofa construction may also result in sofa sagging. If manufacturers don’t properly affix upholstery fillings or separate layers with scrim, rubbing can result in materials breaking down, particularly foams.

Fire Retardancy

In many countries, upholstery materials—both fillings and fabric—are required to conform to strict fire codes, usually referred to as Fire Retardancy or FR. This is because soft furnishings are, by nature, quite flammable and burn even quicker than wooden furniture pieces. In the UK, all upholstery materials should comply with the 1988 safety regulations which requires that all are cigarette-resistant, filling materials meet ignition requirements and covers are match-resistant.

For fabrics which are not manufactured with suitable FR standards, specific treatments can be applied or steps taken to ensure that they comply including interlining, back coating and chemical treatments.
