When it comes to cushions, we've got you covered with three choices: premium foam, down, and trillium. Although you can't go wrong with any of them, the type of fill can impact your comfort and the way your sofa or daybed looks in your space. All three options are meant to last for years with proper care and maintenance.
Premium foam is our base-grade option on any sofa or daybed, but this foam is anything but basic! We use a 3.0 high resilience medium density foam, meant to last for years of everyday use. Butt prints, be gone! Premium foam is also commercial grade, favored by interior designers for office and residential spaces.
Premium foam is our firmest option, recommended for upright sitters and backs that need a little extra support. These cushions have a little bounce to them too, so they're cushy enough to cuddle without absorbing you into your sofa.
Premium foam cushions need virtually no upkeep - they stay taut and polished without fluffing, although we recommend rotating and/or flipping them every now and then to ensure they keep their shape over time. All of our cushions are upholstered on both sides for easy maintenance.
Mid-century styles and tufted cushions are traditionally filled with foam to achieve clean, sharp lines. If you want the least amount of maintenance and the cleanest look, premium foam is your new best friend.
Classic sofa connoisseurs rejoice - down fill has been used for centuries and is still loved today here at Clad Home. This fill has proven the test of time, and with regular maintenance, so will your sofa cushions!
Our down fill is made of a 90% goose feather, 10% goose down blend for a supportive cushion experience. Seat cushions include a foam core so you don't sink through your sofa, encased in a down and feather blend envelope.
It's normal for feathers to occasionally escape their cushions with down fill, so if you find one poking through every now and then, don't panic. Our cushions inserts are designed to envelop the down fill tightly, so a few feathers here and there are just signs of normal wear. We overstuff our cushions at the factory with the expertise that the fibers will relax a bit over time, so if your sofa arrives and looks bulbous or a little lumpy, sit on it for a few weeks. We make sofas that last you years, not just the first few days.
Down cushions do get rumpled after you sit on them, and wrinkles are part of the look. Your cushions aren't going to look like a catalog photo because they're meant to be lived in. We recommend fluffing after every use to maintain a polished look over time and avoid the dreaded sofa-sag. Our down cushions are durable, but they're not indestructible. Take care of them and they'll take care of you!
The most common question we hear at Clad is, "What is trillium?" Trillium is a long-lasting polyester fill that mimics the luxurious feel of down. We highly recommend trillium for those with allergies or feather aversion, and to be honest, trillium is just downright comfortable! Visitors to our Melrose showroom choose trillium almost twice as often as down.
Giving sofa sitters that classic hug-you-back sofa feel, trillium is cozy and luxurious. "Who needs a boyfriend when you have a trillium fill sofa?" says our showroom manager Eve. "This is as cuddly as it gets."
When designer Sarah Sherman Samuel was creating her Sherwood sofa with us, she said, "One key component I knew not to pass up was the Trillium Fill option. The cushions weigh a ton but that is what makes them something you want to dive into." Seat cushions are made like down, with a foam core and an envelope of soft trillium, and back cushions are 100% trillium.
Trillium mimics down in both feel and look, so wrinkles are again part of the look. Fluffing is essential maintenance to keep the cushions from sagging, but they're going to look lived-in just like down. Look no further than the most renowned design magazines for inspiration - even Misty Copeland is rocking a wrinkly sofa on her cover of Architectural Digest.
