can I?

re-stuff a cushion from my couch? not the part that you sit on, but the one you lean against. (does that even make sense? LOL). Its all lop-sided & funky. I love my couch so I don't want to get rid of it.

  • I don't see why not. I would contact an upholstery shop to get the right kind of stuff to use.

  • It might be easier to find an old cushion from a similar styled couch and swap out the insides since they are usually forms. If yours is just stuffing then sure you can restuff it.

  • You know, we had the same problem and assumed it couldn't be easily fixed so we left it that way. Then I decided to wash all the cushion covers, and when I unzipped the cushion I discovered it wasn't one big piece of foam, it was a few pieces of smaller foam. So it was very easy to re-stuff it and fix the smooshed part. Maybe yours is the same way?

  • Yes you can

  • Yes, you can, though what you stuff it with depends on the shape of the cushion. If it's a square-edged cushion you can simply buy new foam rubber inside (available in bulk at fabric stores). I used old floor cushions to stuff an old couch once.

  • Yes you can, as long as the new stuffing is the same as the old stuffing.

  • Yes I do believe you can when my dad just bought new furniture they come where you can unzip them and add more stuffing to them.
