Sofa Comfort Guide

Comfort is a very personal thing, so at The Lounge Co. we like to offer as much choice as possible. Most of our sofas are available with a selection of seat cushion fillings meaning you can go ‘soft and squidgy’ or ‘firm and bouncy’.

We always recommend that you try out the different types of cushion in one of our galleries. It's also worth remembering that the fabric you choose will also affect the sit and feel of the sofa. Leather and less malleable fabrics will always feel firmer compared to natural fabrics such as linen and cotton that are more prone to stretching and slackening.

Here’s a bit more detail on cushion fillings plus seat depths and heights, so you can make an informed decision on the perfect sofa for you...

Cushion Types


These sumptuous cushions are made up of QUALLOFIL® FUSION fibre, where the fibre are shaped to prevent them binding together. They have a soft and inviting appearance and should be plumped daily to prevent flattening. To maintain maximum comfort and form, seat and back cushions should be redressed vigorously and rotated every day.

Soft Sit

• Sumptuous, enveloping comfort    • A more relaxed, casual look    • Will shape itself to the way you like to sit


These cushions are made up of a premium foam core with a fibre wrap. They offer the same softness as a fibre cushion but with a slightly firmer sit and the ability to retain plumpness over time as the foam has excellent recovery characteristics.

Firm Sit

• Structured, even comfort    • Provides a tidy, neat look    • Recovers its shape without much plumping

Sofa Seat Cushion Options

If you would like to upholster your sofa in Family Friendly Soft Velvet, we would recommend you choose a fibre filling otherwise it creates an extremely firm sit.
