Reupholster - best foam

Hi all - I've had a price to reupholster my rib. I'm happy enough with the price and outer material that's been decided on but can anyone advise on the best foam to spec for the job ?

Depends how firm you need it. A typical jockey seat should have 10lb reconstituted foam or 12lb even..

I recently bought high density foam cut to size from

Was very impressed by speed at which they delivered and that all pieces were cut exactly as I had hoped (profiled corners, etc)

Seems to be perfect for the bench seat I made, think I have 10cm base thickness and 8cm backrest thickness
