Do you cut the foam there and then as ordered?
No, we do not offer a while you wait basis, but we can have your custom order foam delivered to you in 5-6 working days.
Do you refill cushions for chairs and sofas?
We can pick up your cushions from surrounding local areas in Edinburgh and professionally fill them to suit your furniture. Please call us for more information on this service.
Does foam change colour?
Foam discolours when exposed to natural light, but that has nothing to do with the quality of the foam.
What are the different grades of foam?
We offer different grades, or densities, of foam - which are suitable for different purposes. Each use has different requirements - whether it’s to sit on, or lean against - inside, or out. Each of our products has suggested densities for you to choose from.
What foam should I buy for D.I.Y. projects such as headboards and ottoman tops?
We recommend our light density, soft white foam V24 which is great for headboards and general use. The foam is soft and used for resting your head and back for only light pressure and conforms with Furniture and Furnishings (Fire Safety) Regulations 1988, BS5852. This grade of foam is not appropriate for use in seating.
What foam should I buy for dining chairs?
We recommend foam with a thickness of around 5cm from our high density range, giving a firm level of comfort. Find out more about replacement dining chair foam.
What foam should I buy for my boat seat cushions?
We recommend our very firm high density blue V33 foam cushion. It is a cost effective foam which is not sat on as often as daily furniture, plus it is lightweight and conforms with Furniture and Furnishings (Fire Safety) Regulations 1988, BS5852. It can also be used for seats cushions not over 10cm depth, window seats, caravans, boats, garden furniture seat pads, and general upholstery projects.
