SF Good Questions: Foam Topper for a Window Seat?

Pin it button big

I'm so inspired by the January Jumpstart projects that I'm starting my own project. I have a great built-in window seat in my East Bay apartment and I'd love to make it a comfortable place to read, drink coffee and web surf. I'd like to find a place that sells good, sturdy foam and hopefully will cut it to my specified dimensions. Know of any places? I plan to cover it myself, I have a simple idea that I think will work well.

Thanks,

Adriana

Adriana,

We did a similar project a few years ago and had a good experience a few years ago with The Famous Foam Factory in Berkeley. We also had them make a removable cover for our foam mattress with fabric we supplied. Three years later both the mattress and the cover are holding up well. They carry a large selection of different foams, and will help you select the type and thickness appropriate for your project. They're located at 2397 San Pablo Ave in Berkeley and you can call them at 510.841.9001.

We've written about Foam Order before; they have locations in San Francisco and San Rafael, as well as online ordering.

We've also heard good things about Bob's Foam Factory in Fremont, but don't have any experience with them ourselves.

Anyone else have a recommendation for Adriana?
