Cushion Upholstery Softer Side of Millwork

Upholstery is very welcoming – you can sit on it and touch it – fabrics and other soft finishes are a visible, tangible part of any building interior, much like cabinets and upholstered wall panels.


Upholstered cushions offer unparalleled versatility in the interior design and millwork industries. These custom cushioned panels are designed to enhance comfort, texture, and design on any surface. Our team has the expertise to create cushions that perfectly fit your specifications, including firmness, foam quality, shape, and dimensions. We also offer additional details such as Dacron batting, wrapping, or down envelopes to further customize the cushions. With a wide array of fabric choices, we can truly make your cushions stand out.

But the benefits don’t stop there. Upholstered pads go beyond just adding style and comfort to your space. They also offer practical advantages for both clients and contractors. For clients, upholstered pads provide a cost-effective solution, as they keep fabric costs down by efficiently wrapping just the necessary seat and back pads. This means you can enjoy the luxury of custom seating without breaking the bank.

Experience the difference that upholstered pads can make in transforming any surface into a cozy and inviting area.

Customizing your upholstered cushion panels

We highly recommend adding Dacron batting to seat cushions. Dacron is a soft polyester filler that gives most seat cushions their common rounded look. For an over-stuffed look and feel, double Dacron can be used, also down envelope for the cushion. Thinner foam cushions feel softer, as opposed to thicker foam, which generally feels firmer due to greater area to support the weight.

Detailing An Upholstery Cushion Seat

It’s all about the stitch. It’s a small thing, barely noticeable at first. But the stitch can change the appearance of your banquette more than any fabric can. After all design is in the details. Knowing how and where to specify a specific stitch style can drastically alter the appearance of a cushion design.

3 things to consider when detailing a cushion seat:

  • Shape profile
  • Stitching technique
  • Welting

Styling choices for upholstered cushions presents many great options. Those options begin with fabrics of course, but how those fabrics applied and styled sets the cushions apart.

What are the cost advantages of using upholstered pads compared to building full-sized furniture?

Upholstered pads offer several cost advantages compared to building full-sized upholstered furniture. Firstly, they provide greater versatility as they only wrap the seat and back pads, allowing for easier customization. This approach helps in keeping fabric costs down, as it requires less material for upholstery.

Moreover, the manufacturing costs associated with upholstered pads are significantly lower than building a full-sized upholstered furniture piece. By focusing solely on the cushioning, the manufacturing process becomes more efficient, leading to reduced labor and production expenses.

These cost advantages benefit all parties involved in the project. Clients can enjoy the benefits of custom seating at a more affordable cost, while contractors are relieved from the complexity and labor of commissioning an entire custom upholstered furniture piece. Additionally, upholstery shops can manufacture upholstered pads with great efficiency, allowing for increased productivity and cost-effectiveness. Overall, opting for upholstered pads instead of full-sized upholstered furniture presents a win-win situation for all stakeholders.
