Fibre Filled
Our exclusive fibre encore cushions. Family life means your sofa has to be different things at different times - a place to play, cuddle or chat. Fibre Encore's foam core in a fibre quilt wrap gives support for sitting up and softness for chilling out - and keeps its shape beautifully through the years. It's standard in our Country Living range. Our tip: Plump and turn your cushions regularly to keep them looking and feeling fabulous.

Foam Filled
Firmer foam filled cushions. Foam cushions helpfully spring back into shape the moment you stand up, they feel firmer than fibre and are ready to give you the same level of support next time you sit. Our tip: If you have loose seat cushions then just turn them over regularly to keep them in great shape.

Keep your leather sofa Fabb!

Leather is a natural covering and will stretch and crease with use. Cushions will soften and relax their shape with regular use, making them even more comfortable, while everyday scratches and marks add character. If you take care of your leather sofa, it will reward you for years to come, growing more beautiful as time goes by.

Here's what you need to know to get the best out of your leather sofa

Give your sofa a gentle weekly vacuum to remove any dust and debris. Make sure you use a soft attachment and a low setting to avoid any accidental damage.

Steer clear of cleaning products not made especially for leather. Even sturdy leather sofas can be sensitive to substances not made for them. That’s why we offer special care kits to help you look after your leather sofa.

Direct sunlight can cause the colours to fade and cause your sofa to age before its time, so place your sofa in a shaded area to help keep maintain its look for longer
