In the last section, we mentioned three types of filling cushions, which are:
- High-Density Foam.
- Medium-Density Foam.
- Low-Density Foam.
Before diving into the types of filling you should have in your modern sofa, it’s important to mention that many upholstery foams are made of polyurethane (a combination of polyol and diisocyanate), so the phrase or term “polyurethane foam” makes reference to various types of foam from high-density to low-density foam.
Now, let’s talk about the first!
As the name refers to, this is a type of firm foam that typically forms the bottom layer of popular memory foam mattresses. It is also a highly resilient foam and is widely used by manufacturers because it provides a long life span due to the strong support it has. Thanks to its density you will not have to worry about acquiring another modern sofa in a long time.
An example of a modern sofa filled with this type of foam is the LC3 sofa by Le Corbusier.
