Spring Construction Fairfield uses a variety of cushion constructions depending on the style and intended function of the piece. Below are descriptions of the various constructions we are proud to offer. Ultra Plush 5L* This five-layered cushion uses a soft grade of 1.8 lb. HR foam for the cushion core. The foam core is then capped with a 1-3/4” thick, soft convoluted foam on each side and wrapped with a 1-1/4 ounce fiber crown. The cushion is then encased in a white non-woven ticking. This combination of foams and fiber is designed to create a soft plush cushion yet will still maintain positive “memory” of its original shape. This cushion is standard on most sofas and lounge chairs. Ultra Firm 3L* This is an “all foam” cushion (no fiber crown) constructed with five layers of Premium HRv foam. The core foam is a firm compression which is wrapped on both sides with two layers of medium compression foam. The two outer layers provide a softer initial feel, while the inner core provides the firm support. This Premium “all foam” cushion is designed for high shape retention and will resist fatigue and sagging. It is especially recommended for use in Commercial/Contract applications. FeatherBlendTM Cushions* Both the seat and back pillows have a filling combination of 50% Ultima SupremeTM polyester fiber/45% duck feather/ 5% duck down. The feather and down fill has been cleaned using biodegradable emulsifiers, then rinsed eight times, in accordance with Pacific Coast Feather Cushion Company’s exclusive UltracleanTM process. Afterwards, PCFCC steam dries the feather, enhancing the natural curl in the feather for optimum loft and resiliency. The result is a debris free, hypo-allergenic natural fill with exceptional performance. All feather and down adheres to the standard of the bedding industry for maximum comfort and luxury. The foam part used in the FeatherBlendTM Cushion is a high density, high resiliency foam that meets and exceeds industry standard. FeatherBlendTM, Ultima SupremeTM and UltracleanTM are trademarks of the Pacific Coast Feather Cushion Company. * All foams used by Fairfield meet the requirements of the California Bureau of Home Furnishings Technical Bulletin 117.
Frame Construction To maximize strength and durability, frames are constructed of solid kiln dried hardwoods and laminated hardwood veneers. Many major stress joints feature both triple doweling and corner blocks that are attached with glue, staples and four screws. To insure frame integrity and compatibility with style and design requirements, frames are engineered to use a variety of joint constructions. All solid hardwood is dried to 6% - 8% moisture content.
Back & Arm Pillow Types Fiber Backs & Arm Pillows Most loose and semi-attached backs and arm pillows are all fiber. The fiber is enclosed in a non-woven fabric with partitions inside to keep the fiber from shifting. The fiber used is a hollow conjugate with a silicone finish to provide superior loft and resiliency.
FeatherBlendTM Backs & Arm Pillows Premium back pillows that contain a filling combination of 50% Ultima SupremeTM polyester fiber/45% duck feather/5% duck down and arm pillows that are filled with 100% duck feather and down, are available as an option. The feather and down fill has been cleaned and dried using the Pacific Coast Feather Cushion Company’s exclusive UltracleanTM process. The result is a debris free, hypo-allergenic natural fill with exceptional performance. All feather and down adheres to the standard of the bedding industry for maximum comfort and luxury.

The Soft-Luxe system features a minimum of 100 coils per seat, or a minimum of 300 coils per sofa.
