Indoor chaise lounges are usually (but not always) part of a sectional sofa, and should be the same foam type as the rest of the sofa. Generally, 4–6 inch thickness is best, and we recommend our Everflex™ V34 (medium), V44 (medium-firm), or V54 (very firm) foams for high-use chaise lounge seating. Don’t forget that we offer ultra-comfortable organic latex foam options in six different firmness options for those who desire a chemical-free, allergy-free and eco-friendly cushion option. If you’re in need of help with how or what to order, let our experts in Customer Service help you make the right choice.
We recommend batting for most seating cushions, usually dacron with a book wrap. Most important, however, is to be sure the batting on your chaise cushion matches the batting on your other seating surfaces, if they are part of the same set or sectional. If your chaise cushion stands alone, then batting can be optional. A Dacron bookwrap gives an upholstered seat cushion a full, comfortable, rounded look that you see in most interior furniture. Without it, your chaise cushions won’t fully fill out, and will often show wrinkles in the fabric. For an even fuller look and extra comfort in your chaise cushion, check out our down or poly-fill cushion envelopes. We guarantee you’ll feel the difference.
Most importantly, the thickness of your chaise cushions should be the same as the original so that you can use the slipcovers from the original cushions. With new chaise cushions, choose a thickness that will work within the design of the furniture, usually between 3–5 inches, depending on the firmness you are looking for. The thicker the cushion, the softer the foam that should go with it. Thicker, firmer cushions are generally less comfortable, especially in a chaise lounge or seat.
