Box cushions

When a cushion is really a seat and is required to take on a more practical and, consequently, sturdier role, its shape is more like a box than a flat pad. The cover for it, which has a gusset or welt between the upper and lower sections, has six sides, like a box. A box cushion should be fairly solid so that the required shape is kept. It can be filled with feather and down or, for a firmer base, it can be cut from foam with a layer of wadding around it.

Box cushions are most usually seen on the seat of an upholstered armchair, or two or three may be used snugly side by side on the base of a sofa.

An essential part of a Bergere chair, which does not have other upholstered sections, is the box cushion which sits on the flat base. Wooden chairs, where a loose seat pad of some kind is required for comfort, also rely on a sturdy box cushion.

Depending on the design of the chair or sofa, there may also be a box cushion to lean against, made in the same way but positioned roughly at right angles to the base cushion.
