    The Big Comfy Couch

    So, what is comfortable? Anything you want it to be. The best thing to do is to come to our factory direct showroom and sit on our big comfy couch. That way you can determine what is right for you, according to your personal preference and size.

    You should also know that the type of material and the thickness of the foam will play a role in determining the right compression to be used. A 4" medium will feel like a firm if the cushion is covered in leather. Similarly a thinner piece will feel softer because there is not as much foam there.

    We have to adjust the firmness, the last two numbers of the foam grade, in order to give you the right feel in both cases. Why not try a combination of grades? That is the only way you can get the initial feeling of softness, on the top layer, and the deep down support offered by a firmer base.
