Cushion Foam Joann Fabrics – Cushions at a home are as important as the furniture they and you sit on. The ideal cushion will support your back, neck and shoulders as well as having an attractive finish to your sofa, chair or bed.
There are a wealth of cushions to choose from now such as novelty shapes such as celebrity cushions, bow cushions or heart cushions that make a great decorative finish to your colour scheme but are not fully functional. The standard square cushion with the ideal filling is perfect and better still are bolster cushions as perfect lumbar support cushions. Massive cushions make great floor cushions as well as providing additional back support on a sofa or bed.
Cushions can be made from any variety of different materials such as leather and even vinyl but the most popular fabrics are cotton, linen, chenille, silk and velvet since they aren’t only very attractive and comfy and breathable but also washable. Cotton cloth includes chenille, lace and linen Most cottons can retain their shape when wet and will withstand high temperatures.
Silk for a cloth is a bit more fragile to abrasion and can be weakened by sunlight and perspiration. On a more positive note silk cushions not just have a luxurious and soft texture but are attractive to look at and can normally be hand washed. In addition silk has the enviable reputation of being the most powerful natural fabric on the planet.
No cushion would be complete with no inner cushion pad. Care should be taken when selecting your cushion pad since this will make or break the pillow’s support and appearance.
The cheapest pillow pads accessible are polyester filled. They look and feel comfy as well as being light but don’t survive as long as micro fiber or duck feather cushion pads.
At the middle price range are hollow micro or fiber fibre cushion pads. These often have a cotton cover and therefore are superior to polyester in that they have an excellent bounce back and are more lasting as well as being machine washable and also a fantastic choice for allergy sufferers. Micro fiber is generally somewhat better quality than artificial fiber.
They are the most heavy cushion pads and will require plumping up to retain their shape.
