However, depending on the texture you’re going for different foam will surely be able to bring it out. Note that if you’re going for a firm feeling then high-density foam would be the best option, however some people may end up with cushions that are too hard. With soft-density foam you’re sure to get a soft feeling almost fluffy to a medium foam feeling, which is probably the best.

WHAT SOFA SIZE SHOULD I BUY?
It’s a common mistake, where people either underestimate or overestimate the size of their space. They end up with sofas that are too big or too small making the whole look less of the intended idea. The major rule to follow when buying a couch is that it should never fit the entire length wall to wall, there should be at least an 18″ allowance on either side of the couch. If its too hard to do, you could hire interior experts to tell you which size would best suit your room size and style.
WHAT IS THE MOST COMFORTABLE SEAT DEPTH?
