Hello AT,

I bought a sofa (the Loring 78" from Room and Board) with 'blend-down seat cushions, but it is a lot firmer than what I had wanted...

How do I go about getting it restuffed with something more bouncy/cushy? Who can I call and what kind of stuffing should I ask for, and how much should I expect to spend (in NYC)? I want it to feel more like some of the sofas at Pottery Barn.

Thanks! Grace

Dear Grace,

Getting your cushions restuffed is easy, not cheap, and very very nice. Most upholsterers will do it for you and the ones we've used are:

Lore Decorators
Townside Upholsterers

We'd recommend calling them and/or looking for someone near your home. You can also ask for a recommendation at your local tailor's, as they often know of upholsterers as well.
