i need some upholstery foam for a couch.
the upholstery sites on the net, list a wide varity of foam.
and 2 many choices,confuses the tar out of me.
i need foam for the cushions, not the 169 dollar stuff for a 24 x5 ft peice
but a moderate priced foam that will stand up to sitting on it
24inx84in is what i need, i'll cut to fit
Try Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts; the larger stores have a variety of foam, some of it quite thick and sturdy and suitable for seating.
If you go to a brick & mortar store, you can see the foam before buying it and ensure that it meets your needs. Foam can be thick, but not very sturdy. You don't want to sink into the foam!

I searched their web site for upholstery foam but got only 1 hit. Best thing to do is locate a Jo-Ann's in your area and call them. Some of the stores are smaller and only carry a nominal line of upholstery fabric and accessories. Look for a flagship store - they have the best selections.
You can also sign up for their newsletters; they used to include a 40% off one item coupon in the newsletters. With the holidays coming, there's a chance for some good buys.
Here are some coupons: http://www.joann.com/merrymoolah/?icn=Home&ici=1-1
If you don't have a Jo-Ann's in your area, perhaps you can find another chain store that carries upholstery supplies. Michael's is a chain craft store ( http://www.michaels.com/) but I don't know if they carry foam in large and thicker sizes.
If you do want to buy online, try an upholstery discount site, such as this one:
Hancock fabric has upholtery supplies
it is a chain store . if you google it you can locate a store near you.
Live near a city?
Look in the yellow pages under of all things "foam".
Most will have companys that sell nothng but foam.
Along with the local fabric store recommendations, check for local shops that re-upholster furniture too. They can possibly sell you some foam (try it out) or at least advise you on what type you may need.
thanks, i guess i was overwelmed by the huge selection
and the salesmen pushing the top of line stuff
i dont want the most expensive they have
but i do want something that will hold up
for 5 years, or more, is better
basically what i want is the best for less
yes, i am a cheap bas&%#d
You can buy variety of foams for your couch though goedeker's, a online mega store for branded Foam and Mattresses with best quality.
