Soft Polyester:
Soft, typically hollow slick poly that will be smooth and light after being processed on our state of the art equipment that opens the fiber close to 100%. This will help prevent the fiber from forming balls and bunching up. Feel: bouncy, soft.
Perma Soft Polyester:
It is a very soft conjugated extra slick hollow poly that is smooth and light after being processed on our state of the art equipment that opens the fiber close to 100%. This fiber is extra smooth and light. Feel: very soft, very bouncy, resilient, smooth and durable.
Faux Down Polyester:
Best way to describe it is "synthetic down". Our closest imitation to the feel of down using a man made fiber. It is extremely soft, but less bouncy than the perma soft or the soft. This is very smooth and intended for people who might be allergic to down, but want that down like feel. Feel:extremely soft, not too bounce, very smooth.
Ply-a Soft Polyester:
It is a very limp poly that will not bounce back after it set in a position. It is "moldable" since it is so limp. It will hold a V shape across the center of the pillow giving the look of down and feathers, but not the expense. Feel: limp, not bouncy, ideal for making a V top shape pillow.
Cluster
Polyester:
It is a very resilient and long lasting polyester made into tiny "soft balls" size of beans or clusters of fiber. It can rearrange it-self inside the pillow making it similar to down and feather. It is very, very durable and is used primarily in bed pillows where durability and comfort are a must. It is soft and bouncy and it is one of the most durable fibers on the market today. Feel: soft, bouncy, the most durable poly fiber we have, good for long lasting bed pillows.
10/90 Down & Feather:
It is a blend of 10% Down and 90% Feathers. It is soft and plyable. Great for decorative pillow fillers and cushions.
30/70 Down & Feather:
It is a blend of 30% Down & 70% Feathers. It contains more down than the 10/90 (making it smoother and lighter), so the stems from the feathers are less noticeable. Ideal for bed pillows, and decorative inserts and cushions.
50/50 Down & Feather:
It is a blend of 50% Down & 50% Feathers. It contains more down than the 30/70, so the stems from the feathers are even less noticeable. Very smooth and light. Ideal for bed pillows, and decorative inserts, and cushions.
Fill Power:
cu in/ounce, is the amount of volume (space measured in cubic inches) that is filled with 1 ounce of the substance (usually down or down and feathers). The conditions of the test vary slightly for the European and USA version of the definition, but there is a set amount of pressure for both tests. It a measure very similar to density. It is a good indicator of the quality of the down. The higher the fill power number, the better quality, making the pillow lighter while providing the same support. The higher the number the "lighter" and airier the down will be. So, it will require less ounces of a higher fill power down (higher quality down) to fill the same volume as a lower fill power down (an inferior quality down), and still provide the same support. They may provide the same support, but the down with the higher fill power will feel smoother and lighter.
575 FP Duck Down:
It is 100% Down with a 575 fill power. It is a good quality duck down and contains no stems. Very soft and smooth.
600 FP Goose Down:
It is 100% Goose Down with a 600 fill power. No feather stems to worry about. Ideal for the nicer bed pillows. It is an exceptional value. Since it has no stems, it is ideal for great bed pillows.
700 FP Hungarian Goose Down:
It is 100% Goose Down with a 700 fill power.This down is very high grade, making a very light, smooth, and full pillow. Ideal for the high end bed pillows.
800 FP Hungarian Goose Down:
It is 100% Goose Down with a 800 fill power. This is the top of the line for down pillows. It has an exception quality and feel. Extremely light, airy, and smooth. Recovery is excellent. Impressive! The only choice for the top of the line bed pillows.
 
SEAT FOAM CHART


Measuring the sofa cushions : There are several ways of measuring the sofa cushion you need. The first is to measure the cover from seam to seam (fabric stretched tight). Another way is to measure the foam inside the cushion. Some cushion are Dacron wrapped , and this makes it harder to measure the actual foam. You must pull asside the dacron and measure the foam. There can sometimes be an error using this meathod since the foam tends to compress with time, and you will not get a true measure of what the foam originally measured. If you no longer have the covers and are measuring the foam make sure it will fill your frame. Remember in most cases it is the wood frame of the sofa that determines the dimensions of the cushions. The foam and covers should be about the same size. If you want to make certain that you have a tight look use the dacron wrap (at least around ), it will stretch out the covers and give the cushion a taunt look (like a drum).

Dacron Warp: Dacron wrap is about 1/2" thick batting of polyester glued to the surface of the foam (picture of the Dacron wrap). There is no need to decrease the size of the cushion to make allowances for the dacron wrap. If you decrease the size of the foam to make allowance for the dacron by more than 1/4" you almost defeat the part of the purpose of the dacron (which is to make the cushion look tight). Remember, dacron give not real support and it is easily sqeezed in between the cover and the foam. It serves a few functions:

1. Rounds off the edges and gives the cushion a slight bulge or "crown" at the top and bottom (less boxy look).

2. Gives the cushion a tight , tount look (No Sagging).

3. Gives the cushion a soft hand on (dacron is considerably softer than foam).

But dacron will not offer much real support.
