If your sofa is looking saggy there’s a good chance you can make it look better by stuffing the cushions. Now don’t just shove a bunch of cotton batting in there because it will result in a lumpy cushion. Instead, take off the cover (most sofas these days have removable covers) and wrap the cushion in a layer or two of quilt batting or foam wrap. If you find it shifts around a bit secure it using a spray adhesive. And if you find there are still a few saggy spots, now is the time to fill them with extra pieces of cotton batting. Easy peasy.
Repeat this step with remaining seat cushions. Total cost for the Poly-fil and batting? Under $40. Not too shabby! For the seat cushions, I simply wrapped quilt batting around the entire seat and stuffed it back into the covers. Placing the fill behind the existing cushion will help to keep everything looking smooth. Pack the Poly-fil in like you're stuffing a turkey.
One of the downsides of some low-profile couches can be the lack of space between the bottom of the couch and the floor. While this legless aesthetic works beautifully in larger rooms, smaller rooms need a visual separation—a.k.a. actual couch legs—to keep the space airy. Joybird's Hughes Sofa pulls this look off wonderfully. The couch remains low enough to keeping the ceilings feeling sky-high, but isn't so blocky that it crowds smaller living spaces.
