How to Revive Your Couch Cushions


Over time, the once-vibrant appearance of your sofa and cushions can diminish, leading to a less than ideal aesthetic of sags and wrinkles. Instead of resigning yourself to this fate, discover the transformative power of proper cushion fluffing. It's a simple technique, yet when done correctly, it breathes new life into your furniture, extending both its beauty and longevity. Join us as we dive into the art of cushion revival, courtesy of our in-house experts at Parker&Rome! 

Why Your Cushions Need a Refresh

Your cushions endure a lot, warranting occasional pampering. With regular use, materials like feather down, foam, and polyester naturally lose their shape, leading to dips and indents. However, this doesn't mean settling for worn-looking furniture. Regular fluffing breathes new life into your pieces, offering a simple yet effective refresh.

Maintaining Your Furniture's Lifespan

Frequent fluffing not only enhances appearance but also prolongs your furniture's life. This practice ensures even wear for your sofa. Remember, a well-fluffed cushion is a resilient one.

Aesthetic and Comfort Benefits

Besides improving the look of your space, fluffing enhances comfort. You'll appreciate the support from your back cushions and the plush feel under you.

Tailoring Fluffing to Your Furniture

Different pieces have unique needs. Consider the maintenance effort before choosing your furniture. For a plush look with minimal upkeep, our Brooklyn Sofa offers a perfect blend of comfort without constant fluffing.

Mastering the Fluffing Technique

Ready to fluff? Start by removing all cushions, giving your furniture a thorough vacuum. For reversible cushions, a simple flip and rotate can make a world of difference. When fluffing, employ vigorous shaking and punching techniques to redistribute the filling evenly.

For Sewn-In Cushions

Even non-removable cushions can benefit from the punching method, ensuring an even and plump finish. This approach can transform your furniture, making it look and feel as good as new.

Fluffing Throw Pillows: To Chop or Not?

The debate between karate-chopped and naturally plumped throw pillows is a matter of personal preference. Whether you opt for a sharp, designer look or a more relaxed vibe, the key is achieving a style that reflects your unique taste.

Fluffing Do’s and Don’ts

Regular rotations and even fluffing ensure your pillows remain in top condition. However, avoid opening tight zippers or using sharp objects during the process to prevent damage.

Fluffing isn't just about maintenance; it's an art form that elevates the comfort and style of your home. With these expert tips from Parker&Rome, you're well on your way to becoming a pro at keeping your furniture looking its best.
