DFS Cushions, Replace Them Today!

DFS Cushion Replacement Sofa Foam

The Dishonest Practice Sofa Manufactures Don’t Want You To Know About.

Do your DFS Cushions or the likes of, feel nowhere near as comfy as they once did? You could be the victim of planned obsolescence…

Have you ever bought a piece of furniture or an appliance, only to have it break down or diminish relatively soon after purchase? Do you have distant memories of these appliances lasting much longer way back when? Don’t worry, you’re not going crazy! These aren’t fabricated thoughts built upon a nostalgic fantasy of yesteryear. Sweets did taste better two decades ago, the air was cleaner and furniture was built to last.

There was a time when furniture manufacturers valued quality over profit. That’s exactly why grandma still owns that sofa she’s had since the 60’s. She’s not being stubborn, tight, or trying to relive her youth, she just doesn’t need another. If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it right? We hate being the bearer of bad news, but those cushions you purchased recently may already be failing you! Here’s why.

Popular Sofa Manufacturers Practice Planned Obsolescence

We spoke recently about planned obsolescence in our replacement foam article. This term essentially means that during the design process, manufacturers plan for their product to break. But why would a manufacturer want their products to break? The answer is simple, profit! Manufacturers can’t have their products lasting a lifetime. If products lasted forever, then they’d never see your repeat custom. It’s much more profitable to use poor quality foam or fibre filling in cushions.

Firstly, it’s more profitable because the poor quality foam is naturally cheap. Secondly, if said cheap foam is to break down quickly, then you’re much more likely to purchase a brand new sofa. You’re familiar with a certain brand now, so you may as well go back to them. And there’s your repeat custom. It’s essentially a win-win for these companies. Cha-Ching!
