DFS Cushions, Replace Them Today!
Replacement Sofa Cushions – The Solution to Discomfort
Do your DFS Cushions or the likes of, feel nowhere near as comfy as they once did? You don’t have to put up with discomfort. Replacing your sofa cushions could be the simple solution you need.
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 making it up! 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.
It does seem that products used to last longer. Maybe that’s 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 that product you purchased recently may already be on its way to failing you! Here’s why.
The Practice of 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 poorer quality materials.
Take fiber filling as an example. This is a cheap material which is often used to fill sofa cushions. Fiber filling doesn’t have a great lifespan. At first, it may feel perfectly fine. Over time, you’re likely to find yourself constantly plumping up your cushions though.
Now, you have a few options. Firstly, you can simply put up with it. Secondly, you can buy a replacement chair or sofa. The last option (which we think is the best) is to replace your cushions with a better material.
