The restoration and reupholstery of an Antique Chaise Longue

A chaise longue is an upholstered sofa in the shape of a chair that is long enough to support the legs.

This rather lovely 100 year old chaise was restored and reupholstered by BJ Upholstery – below you can see it on its journey.

Replacement Cushion Foams

Replacing cushion foams on your sofa/chair can bring it back to life, make your furniture look better and more comfortable.

Replacement, cushion, foams.

New Foam inners - completed

Foam cut to size

All our replacement cushions are made to order in our workshop, bespoke to each case and your preferences.  We fit the replacement foams correctly to your cushion cases and can collect and deliver if required.  The replacement foams are fire retardant and come with a  fibre wrap and a stockinette outer for a soft touch.


Depending on the size and shape the price for an average 26″ x 23″ x 6″ is in the region of £65 each. A large two seater sofa pair of seat foams tends to be about £185 – less if we can.  Please contact us for an accurate price – remember to include dimensions and your location if you require collection and delivery.  Our prices include correct fitting to the case and disposal of the old foams.
