Cushion Re-filling

If you 'bottom out' every time you sit on your cushions and they lack the support that they perhaps once offered, then we have the answer!

We operate a professional
NATIONWIDE
CUSHION REFILLING SERVICE

Our Cushion Refilling Service enables us to professionally refill your existing cushion covers to give you back at least the same comfort and appearance as when they were new, and often even better than when new!

If you're fed up with continually having to 'plump up' feather or fibre filled cushions then we can solve this too!

Dear Bristol Upholstery,

My children used to make my old sofa look terrible (see images above). It was beyond plumping. It was not comfortable. We are so happy with our new scatter cushions and sofa cushions. Our sofa is transformed. What’s more it’s always comfortable and does not require plumping. It took a couple of days to get used to the new filling - but now it is so comfortable.

Many thanks for your great service.

Depending on whether you are local to Bristol or live elsewhere in the UK, we have 2 ways of helping you…

1. If you DON'T live near to Bristol

Then we would use our Nationwide Collection & Delivery Service to refill your cushions.

Here's how it works…

Give us a call on or drop us a line at and we'll ask you for approximate sizes of the cushions you're thinking of having refilled.

We'll explain the options open to you and give you a guide price. If this sounds of interest to you then we send out to you our special packaging bag. We explain to you that we then need to borrow one complete cushion (with its filling) and all the remaining covers without their fillings.

When these are then safely put into our packaging bag, we arrange for our carrier to collect from your home, place of work, or wherever you prefer! This package then arrives safely with us in a couple of days.

Once we've checked the measurements of what you've sent us, we then give you a call and confirm an exact price with you. If for any reason you decide not to proceed (we think this has only happened once in 15 years!) we would return everything to you and you would owe us nothing!

Once you've told us to proceed, we will professionally refill your cushions.

Our 27 years of experience leads us to refill your cushions differently, according to what they were originally filled with:

If your Cushions were originally filled with FOAM…

We will professionally create new cushion fillings using either our Premier Grade foam that carries a 7 YEAR GUARANTEE, or if you are looking at extending the life of your furniture for just a few years then our slightly less expensive Comfort Plus Grade foam. These fillings will be shaped, wrapped in Dacron Wadding, where required, and Stockinetted, prior to being expertly fitted to your existing covers.

If your Cushions were originally filled with FEATHER or FIBRE…

These cushions will have invariably been round and plump looking when new and of course we understand that you will wish to regain this appearance as well as improve their comfort.

We are able to replace Feather or Fibre cushions with new Feather Cushions or a far better option is to replace these with our Supersoft Seat and Supersoft Back foam which when wrapped in our heavy Dacron wrap gives the look and feel of the Feather or Fibre cushion, but unlike the original will bounce back to shape for years to come!

This Supersoft foam also carries a 7 YEAR GUARANTEE. If you have cushions with Feather or Fibre fillings you will see the centre of your cushions are much deeper than the border. So just adding a flat piece of foam would mean that you would either end up with a baggy centre to the cushions, or a filled cushion that will no longer fit into the furniture framework.

So, using our vast experience of converting cushions from feather or fibre to foam, as we've done for hundreds of customers over many years, we have been able to create a solution to this common problem and have many thank you letters saying that 'Our cushions are now better than the original!'.

Why not just buy a cut piece of foam from us on-line and fit it yourself?

You can buy cut pieces of foam very easily on-line, BUT, we have learnt over the last 27 years of offering our Cushion Refilling Service that it is extremely rare to be able to just put a rectangular piece of foam in a cover and it look correct.

We invariably have to shape the foam, dome it, add various degrees of Dacron Wadding, and make numerous adjustments until we are entirely happy with the finished refilled cushion.

It's for this reason that our professional refilling service has become so popular and we continue to receive numerous positive testimonials, such as…

We recently had some replacement foam sofa cushions from you via your collection service. The new cushions are great, but I particularly wanted to say thank you for the excellent service from start to finish, especially from David, the gentleman that I spoke to on the phone. He was very helpful and dealt patiently with my lack of knowledge. In a world so quick to complain, I feel it is important to say thank you for good service and I would be more than happy to recommend you.

We don't offer a cheap job, but a proper, professional job.

'Fixed Cushion' Refilling / Re-plumping

If you live in the following areas, we can also offer Fixed Cushion refilling in your own home:

Avon/Avonmouth, Bath, Bridgwater, Bristol, Cheltenham, Clevedon, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire, Swansea, Cardiff, Newport, Portishead, Taunton & Weston-Super-Mare.

Fixed cushion furniture can be easily refilled or 're-plumped' in your own home.

The repair work will be carried out by removing the furniture's base cloth and re-plumping from the bottom or, if required, by removing the back panel.

Before (above) and after (below) seat cushion re-plumping and whole leather sofa re-colouring… all done in the customer's own home!

Sometimes, as you can see in the before and after pictures below, the furniture may also require new webbing to prevent the cushions looking 'collapsed' once they have been re-plumped and furniture has been re-assembled.

All the work can be done in the convenience of your own home, in a matter of hours, and at a time to suit you including weekends! We will be pleased to give you a no-obligation quotation prior to any work be carried out.

Not a cheap job, but a proper, professional job.

So, WHEREVER you live, we can help you!! All in a professional, friendly and no pressure manner.
