The most important things to consider are quality and comfort, especially if you plan to spend any amount of time on your sofa.

When you customize a sofa by selecting a different fabric, arm, back or size then you are looking at a delivery date that is anywhere from 4 to12 weeks in the future, usually.

A small amount of spray adhesive applied to the foam can help the batting stick to it so it stays in place once you put the covers back on. If possible, have someone help you put the covers back on the cushions. All those layers of batting make it a tight fit- but that is what you're looking for, so ask someone to lend a hand to make your job less painful.
