Give it some love

If you have cushions with feather filling it is important to regularly fluff them up, preferably each day. By doing this you ensure that they do not become flat and lose their shape. If possible also switch them around and turn them to let them wear evenly. It is completely natural for cushions to become more soft and comfortable to sit in. They will over time adapt and conform to your seating habits.
