The Little Things. They make coming home feel special. From the feeling of double density, deep pile Italian velvet, to the elegance of hand turned solid wood feet, it’s the small details we handcraft into every one of our sofas that make them so comfortable and cosy to relax on. It’s why our fibre fillings are an integral and important part of our sofas.

When it comes to what’s in a sofa cushion, many people don’t realise the importance of choosing a cushion filling that’s right for the comfort they are looking for. At Sofology, we carefully choose each cushion filling we use in our sofa ranges; some are more supportive, others are more figure hugging. Fibre fillings, much like feather, are one of our most luxurious fillings, offering the feeling of sinking into your sofa as you find the right position. Read on to find out how fibre fillings make life better.

How we use fibre fillings in our sofas

Almost all of our sofas use fibre fillings in some way, whether it’s used in the seat filling, in scatter cushions, arm pads, or back cushions; fibre fillings offer a soft and cosy feeling as you relax on your sofa. Seats filled with foam, topped or wrapped in fibre, offer the best of both worlds; a resilient comfy sit that requires less maintenance to stay plump.

Cushions filled solely with fibre offer one of the most comfortable sits you can get, giving the feeling of sinking into your sofa rather than sitting on top of the cushion, which can feel amazing after a busy day of work, school or running errands. Fibre filled backs and scatter cushions work in a different way to foam and fibre combinations, they hug your figure for a cosy sit you won’t want to leave.

What makes fibre fillings so cosy?

When we craft our fibre filled cushions, we take hollow fill polyester fibres and blow them into the seat cushions. Using the blown technique allows air pockets to form between the fibres, giving the seat a plump and inviting appearance. As you sit down or lean back on your cushion, the fibres are compacted together and the air in between the fibres is pushed out of the seat cushion, making it mould to your shape as you sit back and relax

Fibre fillings are an excellent alternative for people who may have reactions to feather fillings. As well as this, the fibres in our cushions won’t escape, but it may be the case that some stray feathers could push through the cushion covers over time. Fibre offers that same, relaxing feeling that you’ll love to come home to every day. Sofas like the Belgrade, the Darcie and the Maya are all stunning sofas, handcrafted from cosy fibre and have seat cushions filled with cloud like fibre; the Belgrade is one of our latest ranges, and has seats with a special high calibre fibre that’s super soft and resilient.

    Can you please confirm what fillings are used in Trevena seat cushions please.

    • Lauren Harvey says:

      Hi Lesley,

      Our Trevena sofa has been discontinued but we have a similar replacement which is called the Lawson and can be found at http://www.sofology.co.uk/sofas/lawson and the seat cushions are foam with a dacron fibre topper which gives you the ultimate comfort but still sturdy and easy to maintain.

      Many thanks,
      Lauren

        I am hoping that on my new sofa there is a manufacturing defect as the fibres filled backs and scatter cushions hug my figure so much that I am not able to even sit on it and if I do, I will not be able to stand up anymore since it becomes so uncomfortable and those fibres lose the shape to the point that this impact on the muscles of the body and everything starts to hurt.
        Please do not delete my comment but try to explain instead.
        Thank you
