The two keys to purchasing replacement foam for any furniture are
(1) Thickness, and (2) Density.
Often these terms are mixed up, but they are not the same.
(1) Thickness is the # of inches high that the piece is
(2) Density correspondes to how firm or how soft the foam is. A more dense piece of the sam thickness will feel firmer to the touch, and will provide more support, than a piece of the same thickness with less density.
Use an electric knife to cut pieces of foam. Mark your cutting lines first with a jiffy marker. Get one person to hold the piece taut, while the other person cuts on the line. This method makes it so much easier have clean cut lines with less wastage.
Foam is pricey. Jcraw is quite right that a pre-cut piece to fit the shape and size of the chair above, can be easily pass $150.
Ask yourself if the furniture item is worth the cost of the replacement foam, fabric, plus your time and labour.
Hi Sharon, you can take it into a foam shop and they can cut a new one for you.
