Kim from Folkestone.
Email as promised regarding Ercol Day Bed Cushions:
Praise indeed for such a wonderful company to deal with. Straightforward process from start to finish approximately 10 days! Good old fashioned service (which is a rarity these days) I requested samples and chose 'Two to Tango'. This is a great quality fabric with a lovely texture to it. I ordered on line and telephoned a few days later to see when my order would be despatched and it actually arrived a week earlier than stated.
I originally purchased my new Day Bed from a large retailer - initials JL. Covers originally made by E (poorly in my opinion with a cotton fabric which split) I telephoned SafeFoam to say thank you on the day my order was delivered. Attaching photos for any prospective customers thinking of coming to you. Use this brilliant company, I can't recommend them enough and will be back. THANK YOU :)
Very little we can say except Thanks for such a brilliant review.
Julia from Isle of Man.
A couple of photos for you, please use them if they are any good, I can redo them if not.
All being well I'll get back to you re the couch mid month, I need to see how finances are. The quote seems very reasonable and I would certainly want the cushions piped, it looks so much better.
Thanks Julia for your kind comments and your great pictures.
We look forward to hearing from you again in mid July.
Ercol 835 models are rather rare, so thanks for the opportunity of making you these cushions. Our Turkis Teal looks the bee's knees.
Ian from Bedford
1950's Ercol bedroom chair given a new lease of life with new cushions from Safefoam.
Many thanks for your help and attention to detail.
Thanks Ian for your kind comments and your pictures.
Ercol 403 models are rather rare, so thanks for the opportunity of making you these cushions. Cushions made in our Light Grey Herringbone, looking good.
Ian kindly came back to us after buying a 766 chair cushion in our charcoal stitch fabric.
We are so grateful that so many of our customers come back for further cushions.
Rik from Denbigh.
Thank you Rik for your brilliant picture. Thanks for coming to us for this lovely job.
We delivered the cushions and the massive mattress. Rik measured up for the whole set and designed them himself. The mattress is as good as on any bed & can be used for guests. Rik chose one of our many Teal fabrics. Our Suzy did a brilliant job. Everybody all round happy!
Debbie from Inverurie is back
Helen and Joe
Thanks again for another wonderful set of replacement cushions. Delighted as usual
Thank you Debbie for your very kind words and your lovely picture. Helen said that it was a lovely fabric to work with.
Debbie previously bought from us in August 2020. You can see her comments if you scroll down to last year.
Julie from Tattenhoe, Milton Keynes
Hello SafeFoam team
I just wanted to say how delighted we have been with the whole process and beautiful result of our recent cushion replacements that you have provided for our Ercol Jubilee suite. You have been so helpful with your email responses, very quick with manufacturing and delivery and the end result is lovely, all at an affordable price.
Thank you so much. We would recommend you without hesitation.
I have attached some pictures if you were interested in seeing the end result!
Thank you Julie for your kind remarks, making us all blush. The Brown Tweed you chose looks so well on the Jubilee settee & chair. Our more modern version of the Jubilee gives you a bigger seat cushion and we think more comfort too. Thanks for the great pictures.
Elaine from Coventry
Many thanks for the very speedy completion and delivery of my order. We are very pleased indeed with the cushion. Thank you! I've got the samples ready to return and will post them tomorrow.
Very best wishes,
After asking us to send some free fabric samples, Elaine chose our Herringbone Mid Grey for her Ercol Chairmakers Chair.
Thanks for coming to us & thanks for your kind words & picture.
Rachel from Balcombe
First of all a belated but big thank you for the marvellous job you did making the seat cushion for my Ercol 315 rocker, I'm so pleased with it!
So pleased in fact that I'd be grateful if you'd let me know how much fabric I'd need for you to make the back cushion as I feel it needs that to be completely comfortable.
We got a second message from Rachel,
Here's your lovely cushion in its new home!
The fabric for the back cushion will be the same, so plain also.
I'll do the same as before and get the company to send the fabric directly to you.
Just to add, I very much appreciated you sending the poppers to attach cushion to chair. Being new to Ercol furniture, I was very impressed to see how it all matched up!
Rachel got her own fabric supplier, Curtain Craft, to send us this fabulous velvet, Moleskin Silver, for her Ercol 315 Rocker. Your picture is beautiful with the cushion going so well with the carpet. Thanks for your custom & we look forward to doing the back cushion for you too.
Alison from Berkhamstead
As promised in a telephone conversation with Joe last month here are pictures of my cushions that you made for my Ercol 204 chair and footstool, the Ercol Windsor tub chairs , a corner seating bench and a window seat - all looking smart and very well made.
Alison chose our Camira Craven FL019 for her fair few Ercol 204's & more! Looks really good Alison, & thanks for your lovely pictures. We renamed the fabric, Black Stitch, bringing it in line with the other "stitch" fabrics we use, mainly the 3 greys, + Citadel Fortress, Stillwater, Bingham & Redstone.
Helena from Beaconsfield
Thank you for such a speedy supply of the new covered cushions for my chair, absolutely thrilled with the result.
As promised, please find attached some photos, will have to send the others separately due to file size
Helena chose our Patterned Teal for her Ercol 204 chair. Looks really good Helena, & thanks for your lovely pictures.
John from Huntingdon
Cushions arrived safely. We are more than pleased with them they are a
perfect fit in size and colour. Excellent work.
John chose our Laguna Green fabric for the 335. Looks good & many thanks for the lovely picture..
Marion from Welwyn Garden City
Hi Joe, my cushion arrived and is wonderful! Thank Helen for me for going the extra mile. It's a wonderful job. Pictures below, which I'm more than happy for you to use on your website if you wish.
Marion sent her own fabric for her Ercol cushion. Looks lovely Marion. Thanks for your kind words and your great pictures.
Anne in Abernethy, Perthshire
Dear Bob and team.
I am absolutely delighted with my Ercol cushions in Geometric Treales. I would not have known how good it was but you sent me a sample and I fell for it. I had no hesitation in choosing Safefoam because I have dealt with you before and you were very helpful. I particularly like the personal touch. You give the impression that every order is really important to you. I have attached photos of my Evergreen settee and 317 and 305 chairs in their new splendour.
On our way to Ullapool with the mountain hut mattresses, we called in on Anne with her Ercol cushion order. Thanks for your pictures and your lovely comments.
Shrewsbury Mountaineering Club
On Thursday 6th May we delivered to The SMC climbing hut in Llanberis Pass. It was a good day and over the valley we could see the GMC we delivered to in April!
The SMC Hut had its almost completed new roof. All looking good. The scaffold can be seen thro' one of the windows. Our driver & mate removed the old mattresses.
The club secretary was in attendance & was well pleased.
Jamie & Luna from Cirencester are back
After buying one of our special deal daybeds in Ice Blue, Jamie came back for an Ercol 427 in our all wool Rust fabric.
Luna, already the star of the daybed has moved onto the new 427!
Luna, it's lovely to have you back, & Jamie thanks for coming back.
Jessi from Winsor
Thanks so much for our cushions! We love them, they're so wonderful and comfortable.
Here are some photos! We are in the process of getting different cushions so if you would like I'll happily send some more photos later on too.
Thanks so much!
Thanks Jessi for coming back so quicly with your lovely pictures. Please send as many photos as you wish. We love to see our cushions in people's homes. By coincidence, this morning is the funeral of the D of E.
We might just see Jessi on't telly.
Rosa from Hornchurch
Thank you for my cushions, I am really impressed with the quality and fit. There are a wide range of fabrics to choose from and great customer service during the ordering process. Very much recommend.
Many thanks Rosa for your kind words & quality pictures. Rosa waited patiently for her 335 chair cushions. We'd run out of the mid-grey herringbone fabric & due to Brexit the imported fabric took longer than expected.
David from Catford
The cushions came today, Thank you, they look great, and we weren't expecting them for a few weeks yet!
Photo attached - turns out the colour is a very good background for our cat (that wasn't intentional!)
We're really happy with our new Ercol cushions - they look great and arrived very quickly after ordering, very friendly and helpful customer service too
David & partner sent their own fabric. Glenaan Indigo Blue linen. Looks good. We have similar fabrics as well. My apologies for cropping the life out of the picture! We got the cat & we got the colour. 10 on 10 for David, 2 on 10 for me! Typical.
Imogen from Bristol
Received my cushions this morning, thank you so much, they're so beautiful! Really happy with them and they came so quick! Attached a pic of them at home :)
Thank you, have a lovely Easter,
Imogen, many thanks for your quick & kind words. Your 203 looks great & your fabric choice was too, going so well with the rug.
Mary from Holyhead
The cushions have just arrived and they are absolutely perfect. So happy. Thank you for your patience and reassurance.
Mary was unsure as to whether our Charcoal would be dark enough.
Thanks for your kind words, & glad that you are happy. Thanks for the lovely photograph too.
Barbara from Longfield
Just wanted to thank you for my Ercol chair cushions that arrived this afternoon. They look amazing, just right for our newly decorated lounge and very comfortable.
Thanks for a great job.
Barbara wanted her Ercol 305 covering in this striking fabric.
We agree Barbara, it looks stunning. We call this fabric Geometric Treales. It's a rare pattern & looks lovely.
Thanks for your kind words.
Chris from Raeburn Climbing Hut
Hi Joe & Bob
Glad you liked the van. Annoying I forgot to go upstairs after you left to take more photos. So only got them of the one room but when I go again I will get some more (and better) and send you.
Thanks Chris for meeting us up at the hut.
As you can see, we don't only do Ercol cushions!
Mountain huts throughout Britain are equipped with our top of the range mattresses.
We use exactly the same foam for these mattresses as we do on our Ercol Daybed ones, then we cover them with our fantastic almost bulletproof fabric. It withstands the rigours of boots and ice axes etc..
Raeburn Hut is near Dalwhinnie up in the Cairngorms.
Chris had travelled to the hut in her fantastic Transit, self converted to a very comfy & stylish Motor Home. We envy your skills & your van! Just think Chris, had you not been there to greet us, we might just have been lost at the Dalwhinnie Distillery a few miles down the very same road!
As you can see, the driver & mate passed the mattresses over the banister to each other to navigate the steep stairs. As seen in last picture, we offer a take away service. Old mattresses for new.
Our next visit is to a church in Cambridge. Easier there, no distilleries to distract us.
Jamie from Cirencester
Thanks for the reply.
Attached are a couple of photos. Luna, our little Border Terrier appears in the second one!
Our new Studio Couch cushions are fantastic and loved by us retro-loving humans (and Border Terriers too!)
Look forward to receiving the 427s.
Thanks Jamie for your kind words & great pictures.
We are on with your order for Terracotta 427's, thanks for your repeat business.
Tracy from Bognor Regis
Thank you for the lovely cushions for my ercol sofa and chairs. Love the fabric too. Absolutely delighted.
Thanks Tracy for your kind words and understanding.
This fabric is a new one called Platine Grey, we think it will be a winner!
Caroline from Nottingham
Dear Safefoam team and especially Helen
I am just writing to say how pleased I am with the new cushions for my Ercol 501 chairs.
The zig zag material which is a Timorous Beasties fabric has been pattern matched perfectly and the attention to detail is amazing.
Helen rang me a couple of times to make sure she had placed the cuts exactly where I wanted which was very much appreciated.
The service has been excellent.
Thanks you all very much
Thanks Caroline for your kind words & top pictures.
Helen loved to liase with you. She was concerned with getting things just right. She couldn't afford to make mistakes with Timorous Beasties fabric!
Point of interest for any reader!
The poem "To a Mouse" by Robert "Rabbie" Burns, written in the Scottish Language in 1785, refers to a mouse as a tim'rous beastie. It's a famous poem in its own right, but in addition John Steinbeck created a short novel called "Of Mice & Men" which is a another line from Burns' poem.
But Mousie, thou are no thy-lane,
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men,
Gang aft agley,
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!
You know during this lockdown, all this home schooling's gone a bit too far! Or should I say a wee bit awry!
Pauline from Eltham, London
Hi. Following my call this morning I have emailed photos of my new cushions. Hope you like them. We are extremely pleased
Well Pauline, we're glad that you are pleased. & yes, so pleased are we with your fabulous pictures.
Pauline chose our new mid grey herringbone fabric along with Venus Petrol piping.Our Amanda got great joy out of making your cushions & she's well pleased with your pictures too. She say's she likes your room!
Jack & Celia from Worthing, West Sussex
Thanks for the press stud fittings which are now installed and I attach a few photos as requested. Our 55 year old furniture looks as good as new!
My wife thought she would be pleased with the cushions but she is not, she is absolutely delighted.
Jack and Celia
Many thanks Jack for your pictures & your very kind words.
Jack & Celia were among some of our good customers who suffered most during the big foam freeze! For weeks we had no foam at all, odd when all you sell is foam.
Their order came to us in November, so they patiently waited for all of this time. Their choice of our Dark French Beige looks truly good. Our Helen has done a really good job with this order.
Jack's reference to press studs probably means that the dining chairs needed the screw in male part of the press stud. (the unseen bit fixed in to the underside of the chair seat). We often supply them.
Roger and Helen from Wistaston, Cheshire
Hi Joe, Bob & Team,
Many thanks for the new covers and foam for our Ercol sofa & chair.
They look and feel fantastic and have given a whole new lease of life to two quality pieces of furniture.
I don't think we realised quite how bad the foam had got and how uncomfortable the sofa in particular had become; they are a joy to sit on now.
Please pass on our thanks to all involved in the manufacturing process.
Roger & Helen
Roger and Helen wanted us to remake the cushions for their Renaissance suite. Our Suzanne likes to work hard & working hard is needed with the Renaissance. Your pictures are fantastic & yes the new cushions look superb. Many thanks for your kind words
Janette from Wells-next-the-Sea, further order.
Hi , just wanted to say how pleased I am with the cushion for my little Ercol Rocker. It is perfect!
Thanks again for your amazing skilful handiwork Best wishes Janette
Janette many thanks for such a very quick further order.
Your little Ercol rocker looks ready to rock!
Janette ordered earlier this month, see pictures below.
Janet from Carnforth, Lancs
My new cushions arrived yesterday. They look great, I am delighted with them and thank you for your friendly customer service. Thank you very much. Janet
Janet, many thanks for your very cheering words. I told our Amey who made the covers for you & she's well chuffed! She added that she liked your choice of one of our greys with the refined lime piping. Lovely picture too!
One more lovely picture was Brief Encounter, made there in Carnforth. See Carnforth Heritage Centre & read all about it!
Amy from Newtownards, NI
Subject: A very happy customer...
With a very happy daybed!
Thanks folks, this is gorgeous ??
I'm still working on stripping back the dark stain off my 203 chair but will send you the next photo update once it's in place beside the daybed!
Amy we can tell somehow that you are a happy customer.
What a lovely picture. Our Apple Red looks the bees knees in your room. Thanks for your high praise from NI. We look forward to the sequal! (203)
By the way, is that Scrabo Hill through your window there?
Janette from Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk
These are the latest cushions, I am delighted & tried one of them on the Ercol Quaker rocker I have, it fitted perfectly, so will look forward to it arriving. We are just mid house sale, these chairs have now gone into storage with their cushions .
Sorry if the photo is not brilliant but the removers had started .
I also had the same material for a Chairmaker's chair and also a Chairmakers rocker, they are equally as stunning....now tucked up in storage until we find a permanent home.
Many thanks to you all for your skilful work but also working through such difficult times.
Janette is a regular customer, for which we are well pleased. Many thanks for your lovely picture taken under duress! Our Glastonbury Grey looking good on the Ercol Dining Seats.
Bringing back memories of your fantastic North Norfolk coast. You're well placed between Sandringham & Cromer. Queen at one, King Crabs at the other. We delivered pew cushions in Cromer & have often been down to churches in Norwich & district. Also the Latitude Festival with lots of lolling around cushions for the Poetry Tent.
Audra from Drogheda
Just wanted to let you know that my cushion arrived today and we could not be happier with the quality of it- excellent craftsmanship and beautiful fabric.
Thank you again for getting this done and shipping it to Ireland.
Audra chose one of our Camira wool mix fabrics. This vibrant blue looks the real deal. Thanks Audra for your kind comments and your lovely picture.
Ah, Martello Toren, brings back happy memories of Louth & Ireland too! Our Izzie made this Ercol 315 cushion, she likes working on all things Ercol! (& does it very well too!)
Lottie from St Albans
Hello Safefoam team,
I just wanted to say that my cushions were delivered today and I couldn't be more pleased with them. Thank you all so very much. I know that it hasn't been easy managing your orders with the foam shortage. For me, it was definitely was worth the wait!
Many thanks again,
Lottie chose our Venus Petrol fabric, our Suzy says that she loves the Venus fabric, because it's good to sew.
Lottie thanks for your patience & for your glowing gratitude.
It was a bad time for us when there was the foam logjam, but foam is flowing again! So we hope that we'll soon be back to normal.
Gill's back from Kinross.
I just wanted to say that I have received the cushions and I am delighted with them. You have again done an excellent job. Please pass on my thanks and appreciation to Helen, your sewer. She is very skilled.
Gillian you've got our team blushing again!
Thanks for coming back to us & thanks for your kind comments & lovely pictures. We all love your fabric, so much so that we'd already featured it last week in the News section above.
Lucy from Abingdon on Thames
Hi Bob, Joe, and Keri,
We received our order on Saturday and wanted to say a big thank you. We really love it and it's just what we wanted. It looks great in our living room.
We'll be recommending you to other people. I think my mother in law is looking at your website for her sofa already! If you want us to write any reviews or anything we're very happy to do that.
Lucy your review is done, nothing more will better it!
Lucy first tried to buy this special big bargain from our Ercol shop website & hit the barrier.....we had no foam! We struggled for weeks & at last we are almost back to normal, if only we knew just what normal is or was anymore. Everybody has something to blame everything on. If it's not Covid, it's Brexit or Trump! Luckily foam became available again.
Many thanks Lucy for your understanding and your kind appreciation + your fabulous picture.
Anyone wanting this total bargain, the daybed with bolters, please look on our ercol cushions website, or just contact us here.
Louise from Ventnor, Isle of Wight
Hello Kerry and Joe,
The excellent service continues:-
From my first enquiry right through to the point of delivery this has been a truly exceptional service.
I am absolutely delighted with the superb quality and manufacture of the cushions, they have returned my Ercol furniture to it's former smart, stylish appearance.The customer care and attention I have received has been outstanding, such a warm, friendly and helpful experience.
Please extend my sincere thanks to all the team at Safefoam and I will without doubt recommend your amazing service.
With many thanks
Louise chose our top quality Textured Lime fabric. It really does look superb in Louise's home.
Our Susie says she likes to sew this fabric & loves doing 203's.
Thanks for your kind words Louise, Keri & Joe are blushing! Thanks a lot also for your excellent pictures. Happy New Year.
Jane from Oakham in Rutland
Cushions arrived safely this morning and we are very pleased with them. They are just as we had hoped. Photos of cushions in situ are attached.
So pleased that the foam issues are resolved and wishing you every success in the future. Thank you for your help.
We're back in full swing again, after such a long period of foam starvation!
Thanks for your lovely comments. Your pictures are just what we want. Pictures and comments make us all happy!
Our Helen says that the fabric was beautiful to sew. It was from Just Fabrics, Cotswald, Velvet Indigo.
Happy New Year.
Chris & Alison from Derby
Happy New Year to you.
Here are the photos,we are very pleased with them, thank you.
Chris and Alison
We've done quite a lot of Ercol work for Chris & Alison.
The Rocker is in one of our grey fabrics. We also did a Daybed & some others too.
We actually re-upholstered 10 of the dining chairs in the picture.
The dining chairs look very much like G-Plan from some time ago. Now re-done they'll last another long time. I think the wood is Teak, or a teak like timber. The seat section bolts on to the frame so it was an easy task to re-do the seats without the need to have the frames here at our workshop.
Many thanks for your kind words and your lovely picture. & a Happy New Year.
Phil & Liz from Salhouse, Norwich
Dear All at Safefoam
Thanks very much for pulling out all the stops to complete our order and deliver it before Christmas. Thanks also for the additional cushions - a nice surprise.
Here are some photos of our new upholstery in situ
Phil & Liz Hacking
Many thanks for your order, your pictures & your kind comments.
Your own fabrics look so good & our sewer said what lovely fabrics they were to sew.
It is a difficult time for us at the moment, being in the middle of a foam crisis. So to hear lovely comments helps to cheer us all. Happy New Year to you.
Your fabrics, Momentum Ascent, by Harlequin & Cornelia Aqua/Green by Colefax and Fowler, both from Norfolk Upholstery.The Cornelia is on the 203/2 seater.
Please scroll down for lots of pictures and comments. We enjoy seeing our customer pictures and comments.
Bob from Beaminster, Dorset
Thank you so much for our new cushions and for your friendly voices over the phone.
We are delighted!
Hope you all have a happy Christmas!
Many thanks for your order, your pictures & your kind comments.
Your Renaissance looks lovely in our Borwick Blue/Grey fabric.
Friendly voices, you've cheered us all up now in this cruel lockdown time.
The Ercol Renaissance is a very comfortable range. The frame is good and solid & a beautiful style, but originally over covered by the Ercol cushion designers!
Catherine from York
Just to let you know that the Glastonbury Teal footstool cushion is the perfect colour in our sitting room (see photo).
I have also enclosed a picture of its predecessor!
Many thanks for your order, your picture & your kind comments.
I'm pleased you are happy with the footstool, my apologies, the fabric is our Borwick Blue, not Teal! The new one suits better than the old!
Marilyn from Bournemouth
Many thanks for chair pads received yesterday. Perfect companions for my recently recovered rocking chairs.
Marilyn chose this, our fantastic teal fabric for both her dining chair cushions & her two rockers. We are most grateful to you Marilyn for your kind words and your lovely picture.
Eloise from St Bartholomew the Less, London
Dear Team at Safe Foam,
Thank you so much for the efficient delivery of our new pew cushions we are all very very impressed
I have attached some photos which we are happy for you to use if you would like to
Thank you again and best wishes,
Eloise and the team at St Barts
St Bartholomew the Less in London ordered these pew cushions in March! Because of the virus, we were able to deliver only now in November.
Thanks Eloise for your kind words and lovely pictures. Christmas services will be in comfort now.
The buiding picture I pinched from Wikipedia, if you are interested Wiki gives a fascinating account of the history of the chapel. We're proud to have been selected to provide the pew cushions. I wonder if they will last another 1000 years?
Laura from Loughton. Epping Forrest.
Its been a while but I thought I would send some photos of the cushions in their new home!
They look amazing thanks so much.
Laura bught the Ercol classics before she moved to her new house, & she waited to send us these fabulous pictures.
Thanks for remembering to send them to us & yes they do look so good.
Our Venus Melon fabric is a stunner against your bella blue walls.
Nadine from Manchester
I attach 2 photos. We inherited the suite from my parents but sadly my dad cut the arms off the day bed 20 years ago as it didn't fit in their new room!
Shocking but nothing we can do now!
We're really pleased with the quality and the speed of delivery
Nadine chose our Eccleshill Grey fabric for her Ercol 477 & Daybed, thanks Nadine for the pictures of your lovely room. The 1938 TT poster is a great accompaniment to your stylish period furniture.
George from Hertford
Thank you. Apart from the little hiccup, the cushions seem expertly made and we are very pleased.
Bolsters just arrived and look very nice. Workmanship is excellent. Picture attached as promised.
George bought these Ercol Daybed cushions, in our new herringbone light grey fabric.
No, it was a big hiccup! Nobody knows how it happened, we made the mattress cover a good hiccup short. George saved us a lot of money by accepting a pair of bolsters to solve the problem.
Thanks George for your understanding at this very bad lockdown, lowdown time. Thanks also for your lovely picture, it will remind us every time we see it.........to get it right in future!
Janet from Oxford
Just received the cushions, very pleased with them, very well made and the colour is just right. Thank you so much
Janet wanted to use our Ross Fabrics Pimlico Crush Wine / SR16019 for her Ercol Dining Seat Cushions.
They look just the ticket. Thanks for your lovely picture & kind comments.
Shirley from Falmouth
Hello Sofafoam team,
The cushion for our Ercol chair has just arrived and we are really pleased with it ??
It has made a real transformation and is very comfortable too!
Thanks for your prompt service, you were all excellent to deal with.
Shirley wanted one of our blue velvets with a brighter piping for her Ercol 305 chair. Looks good Shirley. Thanks for your good comments and super picture.
Susan from Preston
Apologies for having taken so long to send you the pics of the 'transformation'. Hope you are all keeping well and busy!
This is a before picture of an Ercol Renaissance two seater sofa and chair before they were transformed by Joe and his team.
They were re-covered in a fabric recommended by Joe and piped in a contrasting fabric in a masterstroke! All original fillings were replaced. This is how they look now!
At the same time, Joe converted another Renaissance sofa, making the back single cushion into two separate cushions which we preferred, using some surplus fabric we already had. He also replaced the seat cushion filling to a much more comfy foam infill.
All in all, this was anything but straightforward, but as shown in the photos the finished result is really fantastic.
Joe and the Safefoam team have done a number of projects for us. Their experience and attention to detail is superb. They are passionate in what they do and their work is very competitively priced.
Very best wishes
Susan what can we say? Before & after pictures, glowing praise, customer complete satisfaction!
Many thanks for your substantial order, excellent pictures and praise galore!
Now let's see the latest rules from the government..............will I be able to go home tonight?
Gill from Kinross
I have received my cushions today and it would be an understatement to say that I am pleased with them. They are fabulous! I have attached a picture for you. I would like to go ahead with replacement cushions for my second 315 rocker and also my 478 highback I have emailed about earlier. Can I just check the following:
1. 3 m of material for the rocker ( just the same as the one you have just sent me.)
2. Amount of material needed for the 478 seat cushion and recovering of the moulded back cushion (which I will send you).
Thanks again. Please tell your sewer she did a brilliant job.
Super comments like these leave us breathless! There is nothing we can add, Gillian sent her own fabric & it really does look so good. Many thanks Gillian, I hope we manage as well with your further requests. Our Helen is well pleased with your comments too. The fabric came from Curtains made Simple and is Orla Kielly Acorn Cup Dark Marine.
Peter and Clare from Camborne in Cornwall
Here is a photo of the new green cushions you supplied as fitted with soft scatter cushions on our Old Colonial Sofa.
We are very pleased with the result, the colour of the base cushion and the scatter cushions has lifted the look of the Ercol frame.
If I get better light and a better photo I will send you another file.
Thank you so much our suite has been renewed.
Peter and Clare
Peter & Clare really have uplifted their Ercol Old Colonial with one of our bright green velours.
Many thanks for your kind comments & lovely picture, really this is good quality. If you do send more, I'll put them on. I know that there were 2 chairs & footstools too. Thanks for your very substantial order.
Doug & Kath from Barnard Castle
The cushions have arrived. Absolutely over the moon with them. Have made the chairs look like new
Doug & Kath wanted foam to fill their Ercol original covers.
The dining chair and 305 look like new, thanks for your order & your very welcome praise. I refuse to be drawn into Barnard Castle jokes.
Mrs M from Farnborough
Patricia would like to thank you very much for the excellent craftsmanship and super speedy delivery of her new Ercol cushions. She is absolutely thrilled and thinks the footstool cushion just completed the look.
Thank you to you and your team for your patience and wonderful service.
Patricia wanted one of our blue/grey fabrics for her daybed & added a pair of bolsters too.
She also had a non Ercol footstool which we made a cushion for.
Everybody is delighted!
Ben from Morden
Just wanted to say thanks for the cushions - these are great -really pleased.
Ben chose our Venus Petrol for his 2 x 203 chairs.
Great pictures Ben, & thanks for your kind comments.
Mel from Newquay, Corwall
Thank you for the herringbone daybed cushions, I think these are my new favourite.

Safefoam is very lucky, thanks Mel. We will never take you for granted!
Kathy from Clydebank
Hi Jo and Andrew
Thank you for my sofa cushions which arrived today and we are very happy with them.

Delighted with our cushion! Thank you very much for the excellent service and help.
Matt chose our "Two to Tango" fabric for his Evergreen 2 seater. he helped us a lot with a paper template, we'd not seen one before!
Thanks for your help Matt & your kind words.
Andrea from London SE16
Hope you are well. The cushions just arrived and they look amazing! Thanks so much - also such a lovely touch to make me a green cushion with the additional material - please thank the team for both that and the very professional work.
I've attached some photos so you can see it.
Andrea asked "Just Fabrics" to send her choice of fabric to us. We're so pleased that everything went well for you, & many thanks for your pictures & compliments.
For further information about the fabric, please look at our NEWS section above.
Tom & Anja from Oslo
Hiya! Cushions arrived today. Thought you'd like a photo. Thanks for getting it sorted and for the bonus cushions too!
Tom & Anja chose Venus Petrol fabric for their two Ercol 335 chairs. Looks great, My partner is at me again! Why can't we have......!
Kathryn from Lechlade
We are very pleased with our Ercol settee, thank you to your team.
Kathryn chose our Arran Chambrey for the Ercol 203 3 seater settee. Looking good. Large collection of CD's noted!
Belinda2 from Shrewsbury
Many thanks for the bespoke window seat cushion and cover - as you can see it is a perfect fit! I will have to try to keep the dogs off it now!
Really pleased with it ?? think I might need new curtains now though...
Thank you again,
Belinda came back to us with the same fabric that we did her Daybed in last month.
This time with a lovely window seat to match, with same piping.
Sue from Worcester
Cushions and covers arrived today. Very pleased, they look great thank you.
Sue chose one of our beige fabrics for her Ercol Daybed & her Renaissance settee.
They look superb Sue, better there than here!
Thanks for your lovely comments and pictures.
John from Sheffield
Just received our new cushion very happy with it, thanks for your service.
John wanted foam only for his 2 seater Renaissance 1069 seat.
Thanks for the picture John, & for your kind comments.
By the way, I see other Ercols in the picture...............who knows where our next order might come from?
John from Holywell
Cushions arrived on schedule and attach photographs as requested of them in place in our dining room and kitchen.
They look great and are really comfortable.
Best regards and have a nice weekend.
John first ordered 4 cushions for the dining room & followed very quickly with 4 for the kitchen.
Thanks for your kind comments John, and thanks for your great pictures.
Ann from Teignmouth
Hi Helen and Joe,
As promised I am attaching 2 photos of my chairs with your lovely cushions which I am delighted with.
I have one slight criticism the seat cushions do not have straps to attach them to the chair and therefore they tend to slide forwards.
I would like to thank you both for all your help.
Many thanks Ann for your kind comments and lovely pictures.
Sometimes these chairs have press studs & sometimes not.
We asked Ann to send back her covers if she wishes & we'll put on some tapes and studs for her.
Kim from Whetstone
Thank you for the 4 dining pads in the Queen Elizabeth Hall Material. They look great. See below.
Kim chose to update her Ercol 369 dining seat cushions. The chosen fabric is a stunner.
Alistair from Stamford, Lincs
Cushions look great. Thanks
Alistair's 2 chairs are Ercol 364's. He chose our Real Deal Teal fabric. We agree, cushions look great. (So does your wall Alistair).
Monica from Weymouth
Many thanks to all at Safefoam for our beautiful new cushions and covers in
Venus petrol fabric! It is a beautiful teal colour that is very difficult to
capture on camera!
Monica says it all. Many thanks for your kind words Monica & thanks also for your lovely pictures.
The Ercol Jubilee with small backs and bolsters. Looks like a Daybed to me! The Jubilee has a beautiful frame, we see more of it with these cool cushions.
Yvonne from Corbridge
Hello, Just to say a huge thank you your cushions have arrived and my old dog is very happy with them and sound asleep on sofa.
You sent me an extra wee cushion...... I only paid for two I think you need more money.
Joe if you can let me know I can pay you straight away.
You have done a beautiful job, am extremely happy, all good wishes Yvonne
Yvonne sent her own fabric for this Ercol daybed. Yvonne's happy, the old dog's happy. We're all happy here too! Thanks for your kind words Yvonne.
This lovely fabric is from Nile & York, Sorbus Plaster Pink with piping.
Debbie from Inverurie
Thanks again Joe,
As you can see the cushions fit beautifully and I am delighted with them. I appreciate how difficult it was to fulfil an order during lockdown with no online shop. Thanks for helping out and taking the order by email and phone and for forwarding the numerous samples for me to make up my mind!
I will be ordering again for another chair following lockdown as I am in no desperate hurry:
Debbie chose a 90% wool fabric for her 203 2 seater, 335 chair & 305 chair.
They do look good Debbie & many thanks for your knd comments. We look forward to doing your other chair in due course.
Deborah from Matlock
Just a quick message to say thank you!
My cushions have just arrived and they look amazing. I chose the Anterton Grey bundle on special offer.
I've attached a few photos for you, feel free to share on your page. I'm really pleased with the result. Top quality fabric, workmanship and very speedy delivery.
I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from you again.
Deb chose one of our bumper packs which offer amazing value. Your pictures show the daybed off better than we can, thanks Deb.
These specials are for sale on our www.ercolcushions.shop website. They represent a very special bargain. This grey one is 100% wool, a super fabric.
Matlock, for those not sure, is only a hop, a skip & a jump south from Sheffield, just passed Chatsworth. We're pleased to hear from everywhere in the country, but what a pleasant surprise to have these last 3 customers in a row.
Catherine from Sheffield
I'm delighted with the Ercol settee cushions I recently purchased from you. Ordering was simple, dispatch and delivery was quick, they were well packaged, and they look beautiful on my freshly renovated settee. Many thanks for the great service.
Catherine wanted her Ercol 203 3 seater to look good. She chose our Camira Mid Grey & her wishes came true! Many more of our customers go for this more refined look with the seat in one piece & just two back cushions. It saves a lot of moving cushions around to regroup them.
Anyway here is a Spike that we're all happy about.............Ercol lovers in Sheffield!
A coincidence that two consecutive customers sent us their lovely pictures. Thank you Catherine for your kind words. We wonder if you know Hannah?
Hannah from Sheffield
Really thrilled with my new sofa cushions - thank you!
Hannah went for the full monty on this daybed. Piping, bolsters and buttons. It really looks the bees knees. The fabric is our own "Two to Tango" As Bowie would say "Let's Dance"!
Thanks Hannah for your fabulous picture & your kind words. Just for the record, when the Ercol Daybed was introduced it was when David Bowie was a teenager! In the sixties it was Chris Montez who sang a different "Let's Dance". "Any old dance that you want to do, but let's dance".
Nick from Barnes
This is our lovely Ercol 203 with it's new cushion from THE experts at Safefoam - the work by Helen is absolutely top class - so good no-one can sit on it !
Nick sent us this Sandersons Woodland Fern fabric for the 203. It looks lovely, an appropriate fabric since Kew Gardens are not too far down the road.
Thanks Nick for your kind comments and your lovely photograph.
Janie B from Cockermouth
Many thanks for the 315 cushions - they arrived as promised. Attached are a few pictures of them in situ.
Just for interest - the seat cushion is a little wide and is squeezed between the arm struts making it slide forwards, particularly when getting up - but I'm sure a bit of tape to tie it to the back struts will sort it out.
Thanks for your efficient and prompt service as per usual.
Janie came back very quickly for this beautiful set of cushions. Soon after the chair in scrolling grey from last week! Janie we probably forgot to ask you if there are any press studs under the back of the chair. If there are, just send us the cover & we'll put on some tapes for you.
Thanks again for your kind words and fab photo.
Belinda from Shrewsbury
Just to say many thanks for making us a fabulous new cover for our ercol couch - it was a Very snug fit and I thought it wasnt going to go on but we wrestled it into submission!
Thank you for sending the spare fabric back - I now know that I have enough to do one side of a window seat foam pad so curtains, sofa cover and cushions will match- love a bit of overkill! Are you able to make a bespoke window seat pad and cover for me? Its nearly a rectangle but has small indents in. The other side could be the same fabric that you did the piping in? No worries if you cant.
Many thanks again, we are delighted with the sofa cover and the cushions, and your choice of green for the piping was spot on,
The answer of course is YES.
Thanks for your lovely picture and kind words. + promise of a further order.
Belinda had bought our daybed cushions and covers some time ago so we were happy to sell covers only, knowing that they would fit perfectly. She also wanted us to make the two matching scatter cushion covers for her feather filled cushions. We had of course tried them on at this end before dispatch! See our news section.
Frances from Aberdeen
Our fitted sheet has arrived safely and I now send a photo of our refurbished day bed In all its splendour.
Thank you so much for making this purchase so easy and such a pleasure.
Frances and Mitchell D
Mr & Mrs D wanted the daybed with buttoned backs & bolsters, it looks lovely. They also ordered a polycotton fitted sheet, but due to virus lockdown the polycotton dept. was still closed.............. Then all came to fruition.
Many thanks for your patience, your pictures and your kind words, cheering us up through this bad period.
Janie from Cockermouth
All safely delivered and installed. I love the material and piping combo.
I agree, a 609, it fits with the webbing pattern too.
Many thanks and kind regards,
Best wishes to you all - keep safe, keep going.
Janie chose our Scrolling Grey fabric with light grey stitch piping.
On this rare Ercol 609 it looks great.
Thanks Janie for the lovely picture, the kind comments and your encouragement at this bad time.
Julie from Silverdale nr RSPB Leighton Moss
I'm delighted with the cushions thank you. Attached is a photo.
Julie chose this fantastic fabric from St Jude's. It looks so well on the Ercol 203. Thanks for your kind comments, it helps a lot at this bad time.
Hilary&MarkY from Narberth in Dyfed
So very pleased with the quality of our new sofa and so glad we returned to you.
Kindest regards Mark & Hili
Thanks for your kind comments Hilary and Mark had previously bought an Ercol 203 back in pre Covid days! (November 2019). Many thanks for coming back. Your Ercol 334 2 seater settee looks lovely in the Porter and Stone Balmoral Heather with the matching 341 footstool.
Thanks also for your lovely picture.
Carol S from East Markham in Nottinghamshire
Good Afternoon Joe,
Pew cushion received safely this morning..really happy with it...pic attached

Gemma from Falmouth in Cornwall
Would highly recommend!
Fantastic quality. Fast service. Thanks again.
Gemma bought this extra special knockdown in lockdown low cost big bargain, on our ercolshops website. Thanks for the brilliant pictures Gemma & your flattery will get you everywhere comments. We're blushing all the way to the bank, (to help pay off our loan).
Hannah from Glasgow
Some pictures of my 334/3 ercol with new safefoam cushion- feel free to use for facebook or website etc.
Very pleased with it and lovely quality thank you!
Hannah chose our Eccleshill Grey fabric and the mustard piping for her 334 3 seater.
It looks lovely Hannah, thanks for the pictures and your kind comments.
Our memories of Glasgow are getting feint in this Virus time. The Babbity Bowster will soon refresh us on our next delivery.
Janice from Newark in Nottingham
Thankyou for the excellent service. We love the fabric and the finish.
Many thanks for the replacement cover for the renaissance sofa. We are very pleased with the product and also the service you have provided. Janice.
Janice wanted her 3 seater Renaissance new cushions covered in our Glastonbury Grey. We sent out the full set not noticing a fault in the fabric of the big mattress. As soon as we could, we re-made the cover. It's rare that we make this sort of mistake, Janice was most magnanimous in her acceptance of our mistake. Thanks Janice for your understanding & thanks for your fine pictures.
Heather from Hull
Hey Joe! Thank you! It fits perfectly, is a great foam density and looks amazing!!
Heather wanted her daybed mattress only in our Glyndebourne Teal. It really does look good in your home Heather. Keep your address secret with that collection of Vinyls! Thanks for the picture & your kind comments.
Michelle from Lincoln
Please find photo of my chair with lovely new cushions.
Apologies for the delay, I was waiting for my cushion to go with it.
Michelle got this super bargain from our clearance section. Thanks for your pictures and comments Michelle, we agree, they look really good.
Sue from Hawick in the Borders
Just had to write to say I am really delighted with my Ercol replacement cushions. I enquired and sent back my sample choice just before lockdown and thought I'd have a long wait but Joe emailed me to say a skeleton staff was back in production and I could go ahead and order. They arrived today, just a week after ordering!
Here is a picture of one of the chairs with the footstool. They match in beautifully with my existing furniture and this will be my favourite spot now with a cup of coffee and a book. Thank you so much Joe and the 'skeletons'.
Sue chose this fantastic fabric, "the purple with no name". The 203 & 341 combination is often called the Ercol Chaise Longue. Thanks for your kind comments Sue & your cosy corner picture. One of the "skeletons", the writer, has been too long in lockdown with little excercise and far too much food, the fattest skeleton in the village!
Mrs Knight from Folkstone in Kent
Thanks to the amazing Safefoam team for completing our chair FINALLY! We've been saying since we bought (4years ago), that we should get the seat covers done/new cushions, and we are SO pleased we found. They look amazing, thank you again
The Knights x
Mrs Knight chose our Light Grey Stitch fabric for her chair, Looks good!
Many thanks for your kind comments and your great picture.
Christine from Hassocks in West Sussex
Thanks Christine for your picture of your recently purchased special offer Ercol Daybed.
I seem to have lost your message in the ether!
It's proving a popular bargain!
Jenni from Guildford in Surrey
Just received it, very speedy.
Jenni wanted her 335 seat only cushion in our Light Grey from Camira fabrics. We agree, it does look great Jenni, thanks for your kind comments and your lovely picture. We love your dog, obviously very well trained & not allowed on your new cushion! Well not for the picture anyway.
Tim from Llangefni in Gwynedd
Very pleased with the cushions they were excellent thank you.

Sunday 17th May Rob ordered our unbelievable special offer, in the great picture that was sent to us on 20th! Thanks for your kind comments Rob, we're glad we could help at this bad time. We'll be out clapping tonight.
Joyce from Whitland in South Wales
Sorry I've been meaning to message to say we have received the cushions and are really pleased with them. I have taken some before and after photos which you are welcome to use on your website.
Thanks Joyce for your kind words and the two great pictures.
We have to admit that your new cushions look a lot better than your old ones!
Ercol 203 with Joyce & Safefoam makeover!
Joyce chose Porter & Stone Balmoral Heather to brighten up her 203.
Valerie from Aberdeen
I am happy to say my new cushions are exactly what I hoped they would be and I attach some photos for your enjoyment.
Can I also say a huge thanks to you and Joe for your superb attention to my requests and quick response when I finally committed to my choice!
I am thrilled with the quality of the work and the finish is superb. And the speed of both service and delivery was amazing. And all in the middle of Covid lockdown. You are awesome!
I sincerely wish you all the very best of wishes, and I hope you and your business continue to cope with the difficult circumstances we are all facing.
Many thanks again,
Valerie wanted our 100% wool Anderton Grey fabic with a selection of tasteful piping.
Thank you Valerie for the lovely pictures and your blush maker comments.
Zoe from Herne Hill
Just wanted to say thank you to everyone involved, I have just received my order and I LOVE it!!!
Zoe bought this fantastic fabric straight from our website & added a pair of bolsters. Thanks for your kind words Zoe & your good picture. Zoe has now chosen another fabric for her 2 seater Ercol 203 settee. We look forward to making the cushions for you.
Jeremy Y from Hornchurch
Very happy with item, cushions are fine. Recommend to anyone.
We previously purchased from you, picture attached.
Jeremy was the first to buy this amazing bargain. If we keep selling these, we'll go bust! (£295 for the lot!)
He previously bought the piped one. We like customers coming back, many thanks Jeremy at this awful Covid-19 time.
Keith R from Melton Constable, Norfolk
Two photos attached as promised. Delighted with the quality.
Thanks again and all the best
Keith bought the Ercol Daybed cushions with bolsters & piping + a poly-cotton fitted sheet.
We're at snails pace due to the Covid-19 slowing everything down.
Much obliged Keith for your kind words, & sorry for delay.
Jenny E from Port Talbot
Many thanks for posting out my order - the new cushions look great.
I hope you are having a nice Easter despite the current lock down.
Thanks Jenny for your kind comments and your lovely pictures. Despite everything, yes we are having a nice Easter.......nice & quiet! Gardening is suddenly more interesting.
Jenny chose our special offer luscious grey Ercol daybed with bolsters included in the price.
Mr & Mrs Kitchener from Walthamstow
Just a quick thank you for the cushions that arrived safely. They look splendid.
Mr & Mrs Kitchener chose our fantastic Rectangular Maze fabric in the blue/beige for their Ercol 203 2 seater. They also went for the original 4 cushions. We agree, they do look splendid. Thank you sincerely, for this Easter note to cheer us up, and thanks for the lovely picture.
Newquay News from Mel
Hope you are all well. Absolutely love my new Glastonbury Grey cushions, lovely heavyweight fabric superbly made. Thank you ??
Mel thanks for your lovely comments & pictures. We all need to keep smiling in these difficult times.
Jack & Robert from SE26
To: Safefoam Sales
Subject: A massive thank you!
Hi John, Joe and Helen,
I'm a little late in sending this but wanted to give you guys a massive THANK YOU for your outstanding service, attention to detail and beautiful finish of our cushions.
They look absolutely amazing! As explained the daybed is really special to us as it belonged to my grandmother. The old cushions had all but disintegrated and the fabric was worn and torn. It was really important to us to restore it to its original glory including identical fabric and fringing. The matching of the print is beautiful you can't even see the seams.
I cannot sing your praises highly enough, from the calls to confirm print placement, to the flexible and swift delivery, we're throughly impressed and wouldn't hesitate to use you again and recommend you to anyone we know needing cushions or covers.
I've attached a photo of the daybed in our dining room. Please feel free to use them and this email on your website, should you wish.
Once again, you guys are awesome, thanks a lot,
We are most grateful at this terrible Virus time to hear such gratifying comments.
Jack tells it from the heart. We needed to perform well with this job. The sentiment involved and not least the expensive fabric, we needed to get it right! To get pattern matching like this is not easy. On the mattress main panels, there are two seams. It's difficult to imagine let alone see them. Joe & Helen were heavily involved. John not so much so! Helen's mum was very seriously ill throughout the time she worked on this daybed. Maybe it did her good having to concentrate so much on it. A precious time of respite from what was a big worry for her.
Thanks Jack for taking this opportunity to cheer us up while we all ponder the present, in these difficult times. Thanks also for your lovely picture, my partner likes your dining room!
Ailsa from Wallasey
Oh my goodness what amazing service and I'm soooooo delighted with my cushions. The colour match with my ercol studio couch is amazing, thank you so much
I got the sofa cushions from you back in 2016, and am delighted to be able to update my chair to match too. The colour match is amazing and the cushions are very comfortable! So much so my cockapoo has claimed the seats as her own.....
When Bradbury Fabrics merged with Camira they decided not to continue with our best selling Mid Grey. We kept a few metres for customers like Ailsa, who bought one item & some time later wanted to match it. Thanks Ailsa for your kind words and your pictures.
A happy customer, a happy dog & a happy Safefoam gang.
Is everybody happy? You bet your life we are!
Ailsa sent one message & then followed up with a second & the pictures.
John from Calne in Wiltshire
Many thanks for the rapid production and delivery once we got the fabric sorted. All looking great in the church though sadly no one to use them at present! I'll pass the bill on to the treasurer to settle.
I have a single additional cushion to order for an awkward length pew containing electronics etc. I'll measure and send a separate request - would that be ok?
John showed patience beyond expectations throughout his dealings with us. We had some time earlier settled on a particular Blue & all seemed well. Sadly there wasn't enough of the fabric to complete the order. Eventually Camira Clipper fitted the bill & we were at last able to manufacture the new cushions. Our drivers delivered the cushions after driving up from the Seaford church. Many thanks for your lovely comments and your photographs. We're all pleased that things worked out well in the end.
Jo from Littlehampton
Thanks Bob and team,
Cushions are excellent quality and look great.
Jo wanted a subtle green to blend in with her refined decor. We have lots of greens & she chose this one. Thanks for your kind comments and your great picture. Your 334 seat and back cushions look great. Our Joe likes your guitar too!
Sandra from Bentley, Suffolk
We are absolutely chuffed with the cushions for our chair and footstool. Could you please give me a price for a single cushion for our three seater sofa which matches this chair. I just want one cushion & cover across the three seats in the same fabric as this chair - hopefully you will be able to check this from my previous order.
Thanks Sandra for the very interesting 203/341 combination picture. The chair and footstool look lovely together. Thank you also for your very kind comments.
Polly from Bodmin
Dear Kerry & All the Team at Safefoam!
I'd just like to thank you all for all your valuable help & patience. I received delivery this week of my Borwick blue ercol cushions and I'm absolutely over the moon with them. I love them and I've attached a couple of photos to show you why. Once again thank you so much and all the very best.
Best wishes, Polly H
Polly bought these 2 Ercol 203's + she also bought a 2 seater 203 mattress. We're all blushing with pride, thanks for your kind comments and fabulous pictures. We've put these pictures on to the 203 section, they're better than any pictures we take!
Malcolm from Enfield
The two unknown designer chair frames are remarkably jointed, & precision made throughout, fitted with upholstered cushions supplied by Safefoam the shape and the finish is exceptional, many thanks for the advice on correct way to fit cushions to the frames and your speedy delivery, both chairs are now on sale.
Anyone interested in purchasing them? We can provide Malcolm's contact details.
These really exceptional frames look even better with our cushions! Thank you Malcolm for your kind comments and lovely pictures.
Mel our frequent customer from Newquay
Thank you all at Safefoam for the beautiful Edenfield grey daybed cushions.
I think this fabric is one of my new favourites.
Mel is rapidly becoming our resident photographer! Thanks again Mel for all your kind comments and your fabulous pictures. They transform our website and give a great boost to our products.
Riet from Oxford
Thank you very much for the mattress and cushions. As you can see, they look great and were worth waiting for.
Riet wanted his Ercol Daybed Mattress only, covering in a Linwood fabric call Juno Mist. Also with bolsters and 6 x scatters all to match. They look fantastic. Thank you Riet for your kind comments and your lovely picture.
Mel, is here from Newquay
Finally got chair to go with cushions, thanks.
Mel has tracked down an Ercol 477 at last!
Thanks again Mel for your lovely picture showing our green velvet cushion on the 477.
Mel from Newquay
Thank you for another superb cushion for this lovely Ercol rocking chair. It fits beautifully.
Mel has bought lots of items from us and always sends us fantastic pictures. Belated Happy New Year Mel, many thanks for your very kind comments.
Mark Y from Maidstone, Kent
1st message.....Hi Joe,
Thank you so much for the cushions, they look great and am very pleased.
Keep meaning to send a message, but the only slight issue is that the press fasteners do not seem to be the correct type?
The opening is much bigger than it needs to be - so they don't snap on.
2nd message.....Please find pictures attached.
Hope they are of use.
Fitted the replacement press studs and they work brilliantly. Thank you for your help.
We made replacement cushions for Mark's Ercol 305 in September last year. He eventually told us about the press studs not fitting only in late January! We like laid back customers. Sometimes our tapes with poppers don't fit the old studs on the Ercol furniture. We had previously found a quick solution by supplying easy screw on studs to replace the Ercol ones. We sent Mark the studs & he was delighted (& still laid back).
Thanks for the super picture Mark, the 305 looks good in our Tunstall Tweed.
Anne W from Kelso
Hi Bob & Joe & Everyone else.
It was a lovely surprise to see you today and great to meet two of you.
Thank you - the day bed looks amazing so I've sent a photo but will do another one when we get it up to its new home.
Now - if ever you come across the frames for a couple of the matching Windsor chairs .......... ?
I'll be back in touch before long for 2 floor cushions ??
Our driver & mate were en route through Kelso going to Bamburgh & took the opportunity of delivering the daybed cushions & meeting Anne and her husband. Thanks Anne for your hospitality, your kind comments and your great picture. The fabric is our Porter & Stone Balmoral Heather.
Anna M from Streatham
It looks beautiful thank you so so much. Best wishes, Anna
After a problem with DPD delivering to the wrong address, Anna got the parcel at night instead of during the day as expected!
Anna ordered these cushions for her Ercol 305. It is a smaller chair than the 203 and has a solid wooden base and looks good in our Venus Petrol! Thanks Anna for your order and your lovely pictures.
Emma R from Leamington Spa
Hi Joe, can't thank you and your team enough for our fantastic (& beautiful!) pew cushion!
Quality, and delivered way before expected! My favourite treat was the complimentary square cushion, and wondered if you could quote me for an additional two extra?
Have attached some pics to show how ace it looks and would definitely recommend you & your services!
Looking forward to hearing from you and many thanks again.
Emma & Ian R
Many thanks for your kind comments. The Galgate Grey fabric with black piping does look fantastic.
Jill from Penpol, Truro, Cornwall
Hi, as promised here is the picture of the Ercol 334 in Borwick Blue. Thank you they are lovely. Further to our conversation on Friday I had intended to have two sets., so may I order another?
Will call shortly re payment.
Jill ordered these cushions for her Ercol 334. It is a smaller chair and looks good in blue! Thanks Jill for the first and second order and your lovely picture.
St Mary the Virgin, Halkyn, Flintshire.
The day before Christmas Eve we delivered to St Mary the Virgin Church in Halkyn.
It is a beautful church, well looked after by dedicated parishioners. In addition the vicar was there to help our gang offload the pew cushions. He was well pleased with everything.
Outside the church there is a magnicient view overlooking the Dee estuary & also the Mersey & beyond. Both Liverpool cathedrals are within sight, probably 20 miles away.
Shila from Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire
We received the cushions and they look great! I've attached a photo of the armchair.
May we also please order additional throw cushions in the same fabric? We need 3 that are 60cm by 60cm.
Shila & her husband bought these three fantastic frames, 2 x Ercol 501 chairs & the 3 seater settee.
The 501 model was manufactured for only 6 years, consequently it has become a rarity and is much sought after. Shila sent us some of the best paper patterns we've ever had! She & her husband chose our Venus Petrol fabric, the lovely Teal shade seen in picture.
The 501chair is in the foreground with the 3 seater behind.
Jane from Tonbridge, Kent
Thank you for my lovely footstool cushion which arrived last week. I'm very pleased with it and hope to order some dining chair cushions next year.
Thanks Jane for your kind comments and lovely picture.
We've done a few 205's before but never had a picture.
Our Venus Petrol fabric is bang on trend.
Pippa from Halesworth in Suffolk
Thankyou for a great service and a lovely product.
Thanks Pippa for your kind comments and lovely pictures, we're all glad you liked it. These big Jubilee settees look so much better in this style of cushioning.
The red fabric is available & looks superb. See Pippa's comments on each of the small images.
Marion from Clayton, Chorley
The window seat is big and beautiful.
In addition to this massive window seat we also repaired a Tetrad cushion cover which had been animal damaged, and filled the repaired cover with a new Reflex foam cushion. Thank you Marion for coming to us. We'll re-upholster your favourite rocking chair in the new year.
Ian from the KIngdom of Fife
Delighted with my new cushion which has transformed my lovely old chair.
Ian chose our Charcoal Stitch for his Ercol 305 cushion.
Looks good Ian, thanks for taking the time to tell us & thanks for the great picture.
When the weather's as bad as it is, it perks us all up to get good comments.
Georgi from Nottingham
Got the cushions today - thanks so much, they're great, some pics attached
Georgi got Designer Fabric Store to send her fabulous fabric direct to us, she also asked us to put the piping on from our own stocks of mustard or gold. The fabric supplier has lots to choose from, why not look them up? Designer Fabric Store, Nottingham. This fabric is called Scion Neo Tutti Fruitti.
Linda from Newark
Thank you Safefoam team,
Another perfect match!
Linda bought these two cushions for her Ercol Jubilee Chair in our Eccleshill grey fabric.
It looks lovely Linda, thanks for your kind comments and your great picture.
Also interesting is that the lucky cat has its right paw extended, my friend Dr Google says Right Paw inviting money and good fortune
That's for Linda & not for me, that's for sure!
Adam from South Uist
Suite looks absolutely fantastic.
You and your company have been a pleasure to deal with and we will potentially have another for you to do in the future for the holiday let.
Further to conversation yesterday. All good, as I said in my last email absolutely delighted with your work and the attention to detail.
Pictures to follow.....
Adam sent us his own fabric for his Ercol 1069 Low Back Renaissance Settee & Chair.
We are all overcome with your very kind words, in two emails, we do our best to please our customers. Thanks for your substantial order & lovely pictures. The fabric was dispatched directly from Modelli Fabrics in Nottingham. Please look them up, we are able to supply any of their fabrics. They are very easy to deal with.
Gill from Tetsworth
Just a quick thank you for such a fantastic service from start to finish.
The cushions are perfect for our Ercol 335 chair and finish our reading corner off perfectly.
The smaller cushion is a great back support.
Would highly recommend Safefoam.
Will be purchasing a floor cushion to deter the dog from sitting in my chair
Many thanks Gill for your very kind comments and for your good photograph.
Gill got her supplier to send the fabric directly to us. The fabric is called Cameron and the colour is Brazil.
The supplier is Mill Shop Online.
Ann from Kenilworth
Safely received our cushions. Delighted, thank you so much.
Ann bought the daybed cushions and 4 ercol 365 dining seat cushions too.
We're all pleased that you are happy with everything. Thanks for your kind comments.
Our top quality Eccleshill Grey is a real winner.
Jackie from Brighton.
Just wanted to thank you for the comprehensive information you sent and sample with regards to cleaning. I was able to just sponge the fabric down and the mud was removed. We've recently had a garden room built and two of my chairs have been put in there and they look great.
Thanks for your help - will try and deter the dogs from jumping up on the chairs in future!
Jackie bought an Ercol Daybed set of cushions from us in August (they really do look fantastic in our Geometric Treales). At the same time she purchased a couple of Ercol 305's to match.
The dog paw marks were a problem for a while! Then our Helen sorted it out!
Thanks for your kind words Jackie & your lovely 305 pictures.
Our Geometric Treales fabric will brighten every room. Perhaps we should put a paws clause in our sales pitch.
Sandra from Sherborne, Dorset.
I've just received my filled cushions, they're fabulous!
Sandra wanted her covers filling. I see that our cushions fit well! Thanks Sandra for your great picture and your kind comments. Sandra sent us her covers because sometimes they are difficult to put on to the new foam, zips sometimes bust or stitching comes adrift. We have a machine to help, so damage is avoided.
Sandra is thankfully another returning customer. Earlier in the year we made her a new cushion and a cover in her own fabric for her ercol 427 chair.
Mel W from Newquay
Many thanks for the beautiful cushions again. Your quality and service is second to none.
Mel buys lots of Ercol cushions from us and then embarrasses us with her superb photography.
Many thanks Mel, please keep it up, you are improving the quality of our website, no end!
Mrs P from Slough
I just received the cushions with new covers and they look absolutely lovely, thank you so much for your outstanding work. I will take pictures of the chairs for your reference and for use in your company website. These were my mum's much loved chairs and she passed away in January. She would have been thrilled to see them renewed like this. I am thrilled with them.
Thank you Mrs P for you very kind comments and your lovely pictures.
Anna B from Leeds
I just wanted to say thanks for my lovely Ercol cushions, they look great in my new house. A couple of pictures to show you.
Thanks very much
Anna chose our Venus Petrol fabric for her daybed, 203 & 341 footstool.
Wow Anna, your new house is stunning but, my partner is at me again! Why can't we ........................?
Thank you Anna for your kind words, Joe will be pleased to have helped you.
Tracy C from Wigan
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the amazing service. My sofa and chairs look fantastic.
Tracy chose our Transept Blue for her 203's & wanted just the seats, then added scatters in a further blending & trending blue. The scatters blue is one of our many blues we have in stock.
Thank you Tracy for your kind words and you brill pictures.
Liz S from Kendal
The chair is so much more comfortable with new cushions. I followed the links on your website to access new webbing so it is completely refurbished.
Liz chose our Mushroom Taupe for her 204. The fabric looks superb inthe brilliant pictures from Liz.
Thanks Liz for your kind words and you lovely pictures.
Mel from Cornwall returns
Thank you for the lovely cushion again, I love this colour and fabric.
Our ever brilliant photographs from Mel. Many thanks Mel for the pictures and your very kind comments.
Tarleton School happy
I now have confirmation on our school website for the two large floor cushions. Here is the heading and picture.
Thank you so much to Safe Foam for two large floor cushions, Mrs Wren now has somewhere to sleep ??
Please look on our Facebook page Tarleton Community Primary School.
Tarleton Primary School needed these two floor cushions for a play corner. We do lots of floor cushions for schools throughout the country. Thank you Mrs Wren for your great picture and your kind comments.
St John's with Trinity, Tottington
Yesterday we delivered to a beautiful church, St John's with Trinity. It is the oldest surviving Free Church of England church and the only one with a cemetery. It was used as a training church for ministers but fell into disrepair. Over the last 10 years the building has been in the process of being refurbished by a small team of members of the congregation and Friends of St John's and is now nearing completion.
All they needed from us were the choir stall cushions, since all the pews were removed over 5 years ago.
Anyone wanting to visit the church will be made most welcome. It is well worth a visit to see the difference that dedication can make.
There is an interesting Great War plaque dating the war as 1914-1919. The story is that the Horridge family, early benefactors of the original building lost their son in a flying accident in 1919, thus extending the grief of the war by a further year.
The fabric chosen for the cushions is our Leaf Red & matches the colour of all of the church chairs.
We turned around this order within just a few days since the church have a forthcoming wedding and made a special request to us. On delivery our driver reports that everything fitted well and there were smiles all round!
We did get an additional message from the church to endorse the smiles above.
Thanks again for prompt delivery to our very short deadline. Please thank your team on behalf of StJwT.
Elaine from Kinross
I just wanted to say a big 'thank you' for my recent order .
I am over the moon with it. The quality is fantastic. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to my friends and family.
Thank you very much, Elaine
Elaine sent her own cheerful fabric for our Helen to make the Ercol 203 seat only + the scatter cushion. We used one of our own blues to pipe the cushions. Thank you Elaine for your very kind comments and your lovely picture.
Ms Shiels from Kirknewton
Our cushions for the 334 armchair and footstool arrived yesterday and again we are delighted with them. I attach photographs as I know you like to see the completed furniture!
Many thanks for all your help.
Ms Shiels previously bought cushions for her 334 3 seater settee. The chair and footstool really look so well amongst the beautiful antique furniture.
Thank you again for your kind comments and for the great pictures.
Julie from Barnet
Safefoam were particularly helpful and very patient when I was trying to work out what fabric I wanted. I needed to match/compliment other furnishings and I took a long time to make a decision. The cushions arrived today and not only look great but are really comfortable. So happy I went with Safefoam and grateful for all their help.
Another good customer with a good eye for photography. The Ercol daybed looks good with piping, and is complemented with such tasteful scatters and general decor.
Thanks Julie for choosing one of our best grey fabrics. This fabric originally was used by Next. Now we just have a few rolls left. Buy it while you can! Thank you also for your kind comments and your good pictures.
Mrs Birkby from Leeds
Thank you for your excellent service. Hope the photos show them displayed well.
Many thanks Joe for speediest attention!
Mrs Birkby sent us the fabric she'd bought from Suzie Watson Fabrics & we made her 4 new cushions for her Ercol dining chairs.
Many thanks for your order, for your lovely pictures and for your kind comments.
St Anne's Church, Corstorphine, Edinburgh
> Good morning, Keri
> This is just to let you know that my husband has just set off to our bank to transfer the payment we owe on your invoice. It should be in your account this morning.
> We are both extremely grateful for all your help in supplying the pew cushions for St Anne's and we send everyone involved our most sincere thanks. St Anne's pews look more complete now and we are delighted.
> With our best wishes
Our driver's pictures show the quality of the cushions we supplied. Here was an unusual situation, the church had been having their previous pew cushions manufactured in instalments, through an ecclesiastical supplier in Edinburgh who sadly went into liquidation. When it was time to order the last 14 pew cushions, the church came to us. We discovered that our Royal Weave was the same as their cushions and was a Camira fabric from the Advantage range, called Clipper AD 126.
We were pleased that we could finish the church off for them, as you can see they were also happy. The purchaser had made an anonymous gift to the church to pay for the completion.
Anyone who might like to visit the church, it is close to the famous Edinburgh zoo.
Jeremy from Romford
delighted with the covers- five stars..!
Jeremy sent us these 2 fantastic pictures of the Ercol 442 chair and 443 matching footstool we did for him in our Porter and Stone Dove Grey. They look superb, thanks very much for your gratitude in pictures and words.
Mrs Jessop from Lauder in the Scottish Borders
Thanks, will send photos, looking forward to receiving them tomorrow
Mrs Jessop sent us this picture of her Ercol 3 seater in Moon fabric, Parquet Peony.
She told us on the phone she was well pleased, & promised to send a picture. This fabric is very expensive, our Susie did a great job.
Mrs Hind from Rowlands Gill, T&W
Mrs Hind must be pleased with her daybed and footstool, she just phoned for the price of an Ercol 472.
Thanks for your brilliant picture, it really shows off the Ercol furniture very well. The large grey herringbone fabric is a fabulous fabric & with the lime piping it's the bee's knees.
Mel from Cornwall, look at these fantastic pictures!
Thank you once again for the beautiful on trend teal cushions. Such great quality and service too.
All the best
Mel, why can't we take pictures like yours?
Perhaps our Brownie Box Camera has seen better days?
Linda from Wraysbury, Staines
Thank you. They have arrived safely. They look great and are very comfortable.
Thanks for your kind comments Linda, and your lovely picture. Renaissance chairs are very comfy, especially with new cushions. Your chair looks good with our Trader Grey covers.
Mark from Faversham
All received in good order thanks. Despite best efforts of delivery driver not following instructions!
Thought you might like to see the finished article!... (Together with the other chair you supplied cushions for)
All the best,
Thanks Mark for coming back to us for a further order.
The 203 is in our charcoal, but the 427 is in Mark's own fabric with our grey piping. Thanks Mark for your lovely pictures.
Clare from Chichester
You are absolute stars, I cannot believe in under 24 hours you have remade and sent out the cushions they look amazing. Customer service above and beyond !!!
Thank you all again !!
The couriers had an accident and damaged some of Clare's cushions. She was having guests at the weekend so our Kathryn pulled out all the stops and re-did half of the order. Thanks Clare for your great comments. We took the picture ourselves before dispatch.
David from Castle Douglas
> Thank you for the chairmaker's fireside chair cushion. We are delighted with it, so much so we would like to order another one for our chairmaker's chair (see below).
> Could you send some samples of blue/grey fabrics please?
> Once we have made our choice I shall phone to confirm and pay for the order. David
We are so pleased when customers are happy enough to buy again. Thanks David for your kind comments & top quality picture.
Julian from Hitchin
Just to confirm that my order was delivery safely - excellent service.
And I'm very pleased with the cushions.
Julian chose our Limetime fabric for an Ercol Daybed. Thanks for your kind words.
We've just used a studio picture, Julian may send us one later.
Mairi from Newport on Tay
Thank you so much for the lovely cushions for our Ercol 334/3 sofa which arrived on Friday - we were really impressed at such speedy work! They are exactly what we hoped for and have given our 40 year old sofa a new lease of life. They are super comfy and look really good. The service was excellent both on the phone and by email - we especially appreciated the prompt sending out of fabric samples.
I have attached photos of the sofa in situ. I will be phoning later today about a new order!
Many thanks again for all your help.
These Ercol 334's are rather rare! Imagine in the original Ercol design there would be six cushions floating everywhere, now it's a 334 daybed! It looks lovely. Many thanks Mairi for giving us the chance to perform with something different, your settee in our Trader Grey.....a great combination. Thank you Mairi for your lovely pictures.
Vicki from Warwick
The cushions arrived yesterday and now fit to the chair well. Please see the photo below. Thank you very much for your excellent service.
Vicki bought these Ercol 364 cushions from us & we'd made an error!
We'd got the fixing tapes slightly out of line, making it difficult to fix the back cushion in place.
We picked up the offending cushion & with perfect instructions from Vicki we re-fixed the tapes. The Ercol 364 is a rare model & although we'd done seat cushions previously this was our first full set, including the offending back cushion. All's well that ends well, we're happy that Vicki is pleased, & wrist slapped, we won't make that mistake again. Thank you Vicki for your understanding throughout & of course for your lovely pictures.
Anne from E14
Sorry for the delay in thanking you for the recent items we received.
We were very pleased with the sofa cushions: the refilled back cushions and the new seat cushions which blended in well. Also with the promptness of doing the work and of delivery to us.
We were also thankful for your patience and care when we changed our mind during the process and were undecided about various details.
I took photos to attach to this email but my limited IT skill is causing difficulty in achieving this. I'll therefore send this without further delay but hope to send photos if I can.
I also plan to send a seat cover from another chair for refilling - but am rather slow at "getting down to things". That is why my husband took over the order for the sofa cushions - which I'm glad that he did!
I knew of Safefoam from some 20 years ago when I used consecutively 2 of your "eggbox" mattress overlays, which I believe contributed to my good nights' sleep. I was glad to find that the firm was still around this year and with the product we needed. The extensive collection of customers' personal recommendations & examples was helpful. We would recommend your efficient but friendly service to others too.
Anne P (Mrs)
Anne sent us her back covers & we made new seats in a blending fabric.We're all glad to hear all was well & many thanks to Anne for the great pictures.
We enjoy seeing our customer pictures and comments.
Peter in Glasgow
Pic enclosed & a wee comment.
We are absolutely delighted with our new cushions, the sofa looks fabulous & the covers have been made to an exceptional standard. Thank you!!
Peter sent us his own fabric for us to make the new cushions shown.
Many thanks Peter for your very kind comments, we are so glad that you are pleased with the new cushions.
Alison from Cambridge
Subject: Thank you
They have arrived and are fantastic! Thanks so much for all your help advice and support. And for the two little extra cushions! If you would like some better photos I can send.
Otherwise just again, thanks for such a professional service.
Alison sent us a substantial order for an Ercol 334 3 seater Settee, 2 334 Chairs & the 341 Footstool.
She chose our Bearwood Beige fabric, we were very happy with the finished items. 3 seater 334's are not very common, so it was pleasing to work on something different. We revised the Ercol traditional style of 3 bouncing back cushions and 3 sliding seats, to our popular full mattress and 2 only backs. This way there are less chances of cushions moving all over the place. +++ there is an occasional mattress for stop-overs! Thank you Alison for your kind comments.
Ruth from Blackburn
Thank you so much for transforming my beloved ercol daybed. The new cushions and fabric surpass my expectations Your service was second to none.
Thank you again
Ruth kindly bought the above cushions from us, we are all so pleased with your kind comments.
Thanks for brightening our working day.
Ruth chose our Balmoral Heather fabric from Porter & Stone. It looks fantastic.
Phil in Bromley
Great job, I'm very pleased with them. Thanks very much!
Thanks for the extra cushions as well!
Phil selected these two fantastic fabrics from Camira's huge range. The plain fabric is from the Manhattan range & the patterned fabric is from the Honeycomb range.
Something very special about both fabrics, the are produced from re-cycled polyester. Well done Phil, lets all make this special effort & save our planet.
Alex in Oxford
Hello, as promised here is a photo of our new ercol cushions and scatter cushion (which we didn't expect to receive). Thanks very much, we're very pleased with them and they are a big improvement on the ones we previously had!
Alex bought his own fabric, and had it delivered to us.
It's a Herringbone Woolen Fabric from the-millshop-online.
Abraham Moon Tweed 2002/49 Navy. A lovely soft & sophisticated fabric.
Thank you Alex for your kind words. Helen thought you would like the scatters!
Julia from Holloway
I've just screwed in the parts you've sent me and now the cushion attaches perfectly to the chair! I've attached a couple of pictures as requested.
Thanks so much for your help.
Julia sent us her own Heather coloured woolen fabric & we made her these Ercol 305 seat & back cushions. The popper studs on her chair didn't match the press studs on our covers! Now they do!!
Thanks for your kind words Julia, Kind words help us enjoy our work.
Gregg from Nottingham
Thanks for all your help and advise. The new cushions are a perfect fit and have transformed the entire room, not just the furniture.
An Ercol Daybed and a couple of chairs in one of our many beige fabrics. In addition Greg asked us to make the back cushions from two contrasting fabrics. + matching scatter cushions. in the two fabrics.
Many thanks Greg for your custom and your very kind remarks.
Alan H from Bridgwater, Somerset
Thank you for our order and also thank you to all of you on the Safefoam team who helped us while we considered the choices for the cushions for our Ercol chairs and then turned the order round so quickly, kept us informed and dispatched them in time so that we can use them this week. A super service and the chairs look so much better with the new cushions that we can't bear to let people sit on them! (The mouse holes and tears in the old ones where they had been in store - not to mention the pattern - were a bit off-putting; so the revamp has saved the chairs from the threat of being sent to the tip and my re-springing was worthwhile!)
A full 203 2 seater suite in one of our many beige fabrics. Thanks Alan for your very kind comments. We really do try our best to please all of our customers.
Mel from Cornwall,Grey 203 piped
My gorgeous piped grey 203 cushions with flamingo scatter cushion all made expertly by Safefoam.
Piping really does enhance these lovely covers, so do the flamingo fabric scatters. Thanks Mel for you continued good custom.
Sarah from CF Moller, EC2A
Apologies for not having got back to you on this sooner. We are very happy with the result and have really appreciated your help and fast turn around on the order.
Please see attached photos for your information.
We are proud to have been selected by International Architects CF Moller for this project in their Seminar Salon. They chose Camira Fabrics AD055 Black from the Advantage range.
Mel W from Cornwall
More amazing bargains from Safefoam. The quality is superb and they look stunning on this daybed.
Mel you really do make our products look better than our photographer does.
Your sense of design and display, with your props of great interest & beauty are much more attractive than our breeze block backing with a painted pallet!
Wyn from Isle of Man
Thank you for the cushion which arrived today and is just what I was hoping for.
I attach a photo where you can see the cushion in situ.
Many thanks again
Wyn sent us his own fabric for this Ercol 835 Evergreen chair. The fabric comes from Just Fabrics in Burford in Oxon & is their Cedar/Rouge.
Thanks for your kind comments Wyn. Your cushion really does look lovely, many thanks for your business, we hope you get some more Ercol chairs & come back to us in the future.
We enjoy seeing our customer pictures and comments.
Mel from Newquay repeat order
Just thought I'd let you know how pleased I am with the cushion for my Ercol Grandfather rocking chair.
I sent Safefoam the old cushion cover for a pattern (they also can work with a paper pattern they send you) and they made me this lovely new grey cushion and cover with new tabs to attach it under the chair.
Thank you again
We enjoy seeing our customer pictures and comments.
Sally from Exmouth
Our ercol daybed base cover and bolsters arrived this morning and they look fantastic.
I've been so pleased with Safefoam service, from your friendly and helpful answering of all my questions, and your patience whilst I dithered about materials etc, to your speedy and professional service, with ease of delivery.
I would definitely use your services again and recommend you to others Many thanks and Best wishes Sally
Sally wanted us to make the covers for her Daybed in her own special fabric. Must say they look brilliant. Sally you have left us all blushing with pride.
We all love your decor too. Many thanks.
Mrs Monger from Evesham
I would just like yo say a big thankyou for my new cushion and cover for my ercol rocking chair. I am so please with it. Your service is excellent and staff were so helpful. If need be I will use you again and recommend your company to all my friends and family. Thankyou again from a very happy customer.
Mrs Monger was unsure of the Model number for her Ercol chair.
It turned out to be a Chairmakers Rocker, Ercol 473. Like the picture but a Rocker. I've pinched Jackie from Stafford's picture. Thank you for your kind comments Mrs Monger.
Heidi from Hamersham
Heidi was so delighted with her window seat cushions, that she Interflora'd a fantastic bouquet of flowers for our Helen.
Joe McMorn from Ilkley
"We are very pleased with the quality of fabric and workmanship on the cushions. Everyone we spoke to at safefoam were professional, polite and very helpful. The cushions came in good time so all in all it was an excellent service which I'd recommend unreservedly"
Joe, Many thanks for your kind comments, we do try our best. Your table is fantastic.
Gemma from Preston
Photo of your fabulous work. Gemma
Gemma brought her Ercol 176 Windsor armchair + her own fabric. She wanted new cushions, We'd never seen a 176 before, but found that it was in size, much like the 305. A couple of minor cushion changes and lo & behold. Everybody is happy.
Heather from Stamford
Thanks for the fantastic service. Heather
At the same time that we were buttoning the double back cushion for Caroline & Grant from Penrith, in the same fabric we were doing a whole Ercol 203 suite with the good looking Charcoal bolsters. Thanks for your comments and pictures. Your scatters look good too.
Caroline & Grant from Penrith, Cumbria
Thank you so very much - we absolutely love our new Ercol cushions. We think the added buttons along with the single foam back and base design make it look really smart. It's really comfy too!!! We will certainly be ordering more for our other Ercol furniture in the future.
Caroline and Grant
Grant & Caroline wanted their Ercol 203 2 seater to look a bit different.
It looks great & there'll be no trouble straightening cushions!
Thanks for the pictures and kind comments. We see Ercol chairs in the background, our interest buds are sprouting.
Tierny from Edinburgh
Many thanks for the 477 cushion, all received now. We love it and it looks great !
Tierney wanted a specific green fabric & as often happens we had just the one that she wanted, in stock.
We tend to sell just seat cushions for the Ercol 477 & 478. The original back cushions just completely hide the lovely spindles and frame.
A scatter cushion is all that's needed. Then you've got someting especially good to look at!
Jackie from Stafford (again!)
Hi Kerri and Bob
I just wanted to say thank you so much for the Jubilee armchair cushions. I think the slightly narrower foam works better, they look just right to me. And they work really well with two sheepskins on the back (really comfy armchairs now) - we bought the sheepskins in Skye years ago and only usually get them out in winter to drape over the settees so these chairs feel like their proper place. Sorry to have been such a fusspot. And thank you for the cushions too, though I've put them with the daybed! So for now we are ercoled up, lol. Thanks again.
Before Christmas Jackie bought an Ercol Daybed set of cushions from us. This time, these 766 cushions. We usually sell these at 5 inches thick. For Jackie we made them 4.5 inches. Thanks again for your praise and lovely pictures. Please get some more Ercol furniture!
Jo from Mexborough, South Yorkshire
Please find attached a photo of the new cushion in place.
We are really pleased with the quality, workmanship and service you provide. The cushion looks great at the side of the existing chair we have.
Jo bought this 205 footstool in Arran Chambray after previosly buying an Ercol chair cushion set from us. Thanks for your kind comments Jo.
Lynn from Teddington
Hello, everyone at Safefoam!
We love our new window seat cushion. It is beautifully made, with firm cushioning and a great fabric option. It feels like suede and the colour is perfect for us.
This was the second time we ordered from you. Your customer support and advice over the phone was excellent throughout and we especially appreciate that you got it to us before the holidays, as promised. Not everything we ordered did!
Thank you Lynn for your kind comments and great picture. Lynn previously bought six Ercol dining seat cushions.
Susan from Isle of Bute
Just a quick email to say that my customer and I were delighted with the foam/wadding sofa seat pads.
I have enclosed a couple of images and will definitely recommend your products.
My customer says it is much comfier and he doesn't have to keep smoothing out and making the seat pads look neat. They just look neat because they are filled and full looking.
Susan is an interior designer and her customer was fed up with forever plumping up cushions. We supplied these replacement seat cushions using only the best Reflex foam with a fibre wrap. The effect "like new". Actually now they are probably better than new!
Thank you for your kind comments and your fantastic photographs.
Wendy from Orpington
Dear Safefoam, many thanks for the lovely cushions for our daybed and rocking chair. They are great! All the poppers worked perfectly. We are really pleased with them and send thanks for all the care and attention to detail you put in! Your phone calls to make sure everything was correct were much appreciated!
Could you please let me know the details and washing instructions for the fabric - then I know how to care for it.
Many thanks again, Wendy
This Ercol 315 Rocker & Daybed looks good in Wendy's chosen fabric.
Wendy chose this lovely woolen fabric in olive green with wavy stripe, just one of so many fabrics we carry in stock. It looks really good Wendy. Many thanks for your kind comments and top pictures.
Michael from Rickmansworth
Here are a few photos as requested. Just like to say Thanks for the great service.
Michael first bought the 2 x 203's almost a year ago. Then came back for the 341 Footstool very recently. The fabric chosen is Fryetts Arran Chambray. Many thanks Michael for your comments and pictures.
Irene from Wellingborough
These are the cushions you made for the Ercol and other chair. They are excellent quality and very firm which is great. I would have no problem in recommending you in the future. My daughter was thrilled with them.
We do lots of Ercol dining seat cushions, and tend to have them in stock, so this one was a bit different for us. Irene's daughter had refurbished a few odd dining chairs, for a couple of which she sent us paper patterns. This one we put poppers and tapes on, as per Ercol, and also sent her some screw in studs for the poppers to pop onto! You will notice that we also did this cushion with piping at the bottom, the Ercol way. Of course we're happy to to them without piping or with piping top & bottom. It's the customer who chooses.
Many thanks Irene for your kind comments and lovely pictures, before & after.
Happy New Year.
By the way, if any of you, the readers, are anywhere near Wellingborough, why not call in Furniture at the Terrace? It's a true treasure trove of Ercol delights.
Anna from London SE8
We couldn't be happier with our Ercol covers from Safefoam! We ordered the charcoal grey covers and cushions for our Ercol daybed and 203 chair. Speedy delivery, great quality fabric in very reasonable prices. The colour is great and perfectly matches our colour scheme. Will definitely use Safefoam again. Anna
Anna & partner first bought in July last year, then added more in December. What a great start for us in this new year. Fabulous comments, fantastic picture & lovely decor. Thank you Anna for everything.
Wendy and Eric from Stroud
Hello Bob and Helen
We just wanted to say thank you for producing our cushions so quickly. We are very pleased with how they look and feel. Very impressed with the workmanship. They have transformed our jubilee 766 chairs and now look like new - photo attached.
Many thanks for your help and advice.
Have a happy Christmas
Eric & Wendy
Many thanks for your super comments. The last week before Christmas was very hectic. Wendy & Eric chose this beautiful fabric by Next. However it proved a challenge for Helen, since we were pretty sure that there wasn't enough fabric! We used the last square inch to produce these 2 Ercol 766 chair cushions. They look good, thanks for the great photograph.
See how Helen matches everything? Unlike Ercol's original design, we always put a bigger seat cushion on the base, making for bigger comfort!
Mel from Cornwall
Beautiful daybed cushions and scatter cushions all expertly made by Safefoam.
Mel has bought a few daybed cushions from us & especially this month. The one pictured is our Camira Light Grey Stitch, looks good & will never wear out. It is eminently washable too! Mel has been very busy just recently so she sent her fantastic Flamingo fabric & we made her a few scatters. We are very happy to do this for anyone.
Mel, many thanks for your purchases, your very kind comments and your fantastic pictures.
Elizabeth from Exeter
We just wanted to thank you very much for the lovely cushions received on Friday. We are delighted with them and glad we chose that material.
Thank you again for all your help and your very swift service.
Wishing you a Happy Christmas,
Best wishes, Elizabeth
This Ercol 307 looks good in one of our selection of beige fabrics.
Thank you for your kind comments, & Happy Christmas to you also.
Mel from Newquay Daybed one.
Another set of Ercol daybed cushions made beautifully and delivered super fast. These guys at Safefoam are fantastic.
One of our green velvet sets of daybed cushions. Mel your lovely pictures put us to shame.
Mel from Newquay Daybed two
More fantastic daybed cushions with bolsters. Thank you Safefoam they are superb quality and the prices are excellent.
Mel. Many thanks for all of your kind words.
Mel from Newquay
Ercol 203 chair looking stunning in this gorgeous geometric fabric from Safefoam. The quality is superb. Thank you again. I will be buying more.
Mel chose this attractive fabric for the 203.
Thank you Mel for your repeat order, your kind comments and your fabulous pictures.
Faye from Inverness
After finding the frame for an ercol easy chair at the local recycling centre I looked at lots of different websites for new cushions and Safefoam by far offered the largest variety and best value. The cushions arrived a bit later than expected due to the ones I ordered originally being out of stock, but this was dealt with efficiently and professionally by the company, they were prompt at replying to emails and the times I spoke to them on the phone the staff were very friendly and helpful. The cushions arrived well packaged and the delivery service meant we could choose to have them delivered elsewhere if we weren't home, which was handy, I had to pay slightly extra for delivery as I live in the Scottish Highlands but I did expect this. The cushions themselves are very well made and very comfortable I am really happy with my purchase and I wouldn't consider going anywhere else for ercol cushions. Overall it is an excellent company with great products. I would highly recommend them.
Many thanks Faye for your kind comments. Faye bought this Ercol 203 set of cushions in one of our pure wool fabrics. It's freezing here today, I bet it's cosy by that fire!
Dawn from Hanchurch, Stoke-on-Trent
Really pleased with my cushions and with the service provided.
Many thanks Dawn
Dawn earlier bought one of our mid grey Ercol Daybed sets of cushions, then very soon after came back for the pair of Ercol 203 chair cushions in Porter & Stone Dove Grey. Thank you Dawn for your kind comments & your lovely picture.
Jane & Mark from Formby, Liverpool
Thank you so much for your wonderful service. Safefoam have been a pleasure to deal with and everything was done promptly and very professionally. Thank you for sending us the samples which helped us enormously with choosing the fabric that would look best and match to the rest of our room.
The service was wonderful and we received the cushions 10 days after placing the order. The furniture looks lovely in our room and we are delighted with the finished product. I could not recommend Safefoam highly enough, brilliant product and service from start to finish.
Thank You very much
PS . It has been lovely to be able to reuse a piece of furniture that has been sitting doing nothing for the past 20 years.
All looks comfy for Christmas then!
Jane and Mark, many thanks for your very kind words. We are so pleased when customers show such appreciation for our day to day activity. This was the Full Monty, Daybed with piping and bolsters. Looks great.
Plumbs kindly supply us with this fabulous fabric, it looks brilliant on your Daybed Jane &Mark.
Jenna from Royston
We are thrilled with the cushions! Everyone we dealt with at Safefoam was so helpful and accommodating and we would definitely recommend the service.
Picture attached. As you can see from the dodgy sanding job, we are only a little way in to our ercol chair restoration project!
Thanks very much to everyone at Safefoam, have a great Christmas!
We like it too Jenna.
Jenna sent her own Greta-Khaki fabric supplied straight to us from Ada & Ina in Canterbury for her 706 Jubilee chair.They are specialists in Natural Fabrics. Thanks for the kind comments & the lovely picture. Happy Christmas to you too!
Tierney from Edinburgh
Many thanks for the 477 cushion, all received now. We love it and it looks great !
Tierney wanted her new cushion in a dark green fabric. We happened to have just the right one in stock, we think it was a Camira Main Line fabric. We're hoping for a picture soon, many, many thanks for your kind comments. It took just over a week from placing the order to us dispatching the goods.
Joanne from Ashover in Derbyshire
Just wanted to say thank you for getting the cushions sent so quickly, we're really pleased with them & they look great on the sofa.
Joanne ordered this Ercol Daybed in our fantastic Mid Grey Stitch from Camira Fabris. It certainly looks the business!
Michal from York
Hi thank you so much for our fantastic ercol sofa cushion! Amazing job and looks great.
Michal was unsure whether or not his settee was 203 or 204. They really do look the same.
A pattern or two swapped addresses & here is the result. Our own special woolen grey with orange piping, really does look great.
Many thanks for your glowing praise Michal, & next time we're in York, maybe you'll show us which button to press on the camera, for such fabulous photographs.
Matt in Berlin, but presently for only a short while longer
Dear Safefoam Team,
Just to let you know that the cushions arrived safely last week. They look great, can't wait to see them on the furniture (down in France)
I am really pleased with the quality of the cushions and your service.
Matt kindly bought a few items from us and we delivered them to him in Berlin. These were the cushions for his Ercol furniture in the South of France. Matt's moving there soon and wanted to take his new cushions himself, to his new abode. We look forward to the photographs from France.
Evelyn from West Wickham
Thanks so much for all the time and trouble you took over the sofa cushions. I think they are perfect and exactly as I had imagined them to be. As you say, so much better than the original design. They fit beautifully.
Thanks so much. Evelyn.
Evelyn wanted her Ercol 766 to look as good as the Daybed. Between us we came up with this comfy version. Now available to anyone else
Kim from South Croyden
Just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for an outstanding and professional service.
I had a set of Ercol 203 cushions finished in my own fabric. I really enjoyed my conversations with your staff, which were both fun and service-focused. The finished product is absolutely perfect, and was returned to me much faster than I expected. I was delighted that you even made me a scatter cushion with the remaining fabric: what a lovely touch.
I am thrilled with my new-look chair, and would be very pleased to recommend your services and to use you again.
Thank you all so much for a really happy experience.
All the best
Kim sent her own fabric, a Noma plain pale green. A quality fabric and we did the job!
Thank you Kim for your kind words. They will help to cheer us up through this oncoming winter.
Clare from SE16
Thanks so much again for your wonderful work .. I'm so pleased with both of them . Feel free to share them on your webpage And thanks again for the fabric remnants for our charity Spires
Clare had the fabric supplier send us lots of Dunbar Denim & Dunbar Saddle for her large order. The big Ercol Renaissance Settee and the Ercol 766 Jubilee look fabulous in this excellent fabric.
She also asked us to make scatter cushion covers for her own fillers. These we made, at her request, with contrasting piping, all in all, looking good.
Many thanks Clare for trusting us with this valuable fabric and for your kind comments and excellent pictures.
Melanie from Battersea area.
To everyone at Safefoam,
Thank you so much for my beautiful cushions and all your help and advice too. They arrived this week and I am delighted with them.
Modelled by Echo the dog.
Melanie chose this Next, Chartreuse fabric for her Ercol Studio Couch/Daybed & added our popular bolsters. Her 477 chair is looking good too. Thank you Melanie for choosing us to do this order for you, and thank you for your very kind comments.
Val from Middleton
Thank you very much for the cushions.
They look good I must say! Thanks again.
Will recommend Safefoam for definite.
Val initially bought two 203's straight from our website, after discussions regarding the fabric.
Val then phoned to say how very pleased she was to get them delivered so quickly.
She then purchased two 305's as well! All these 4 chairs were ordered and received within a week!
Thanks Val for the picture showng a 203 & a 305 alongside each other. Seeing the work on two different styles and sizes, praise is due to our Helen for her meticulous attention to detail with pattern matching. Thanks Val & thanks Helen. They are both Lasses from Lancashire.
Kate from Reigate
Hi - I'm attaching a picture - sorry it's a bit yellow, but it's a rather grey day here today! I really can't thank you enough for your help and patience. I was worried that, as the chairs are a bit esoteric (I think they are 1950s 335s), it would be a struggle to get the cushions to fit properly, but you've done a fantastic job and they look made to measure. You really know your stuff and it's been a pleasure working with you!
Neither of us being certain just which Ercol model Kate had, we sent a 335 paper pattern to be sure. Kate bought her own Sorrento Denim, a blue upholstery weight chenille, and had the merchant send it direct to us. With the addition of piping all turned out well. Thank you Kate for the blush creating praise and the pretty picture. We hope you buy more Ercol stuff soon. We can't wait to make the cushions for you. However the same old story, my partner asks why we can't have a rug like that! There goes the blush.
Simon from Maidstone
Simon was so pleased with the 2 203's be bought, that he came back soon & bought the 203 2 seater as well.This fabric is a superb 92% wool from Yorkshire.
Thanks very much for your pictures, your kind comments and your 3 purchases.
Jackie from Stafford
Hiya, just wanted to say thank you so much for the day bed cushions. We love them! And thanks for sorting everything out in such a friendly and professional manner.
So moving on, do you do base cushions for the Ercol chairmakers chair please? If you do how much are they please and can we pick a fabric similar to the one on the daybed?
Look forward to hearing from you, and thanks again.
For her Daybed Jackie actually chose a Teal fabric that had sadly gone out of stock & there was no more at our supplier. However by coincidence we just started buying a new range of fabrics called the Venus Collection. The picture shows the first item we made in it called Venus Petrol. We like it very much, but so does Jackie, that's the main thing for us.
Thanks Jackie for your patience and understanding with us, also for your fantastic picture & for your request for Chairmaker pattern.
Diane from Oxford
Dear Bob and Kelly - Many thanks for the cushions. They are very good & fit well.
Diane sent us her own fabric for these Ercol 365 dining seat cushions, with poppers and tapes. Thanks for the great pictures Diane.
Mel from Newquay, Cornwall
My gorgeous daybed light grey cushions. The quality is superb as is the customer service and care.
Thank you all at Safefoam.
Mel from Truro, has bought a fair few items from us, for which we are most grateful. Here is seen our Light Grey Daybed, looking better at Mel's than it does at ours! Thanks Mel for your continued business and for your very kind and gratefully accepted comments.
Tim & Sian from Wombourne
The cushions have just arrived and they are perfect. I just wanted to say thank you very much! I've included a picture. Feel free to use it as an example anytime.
Mr & Mrs Robinson & we, thought their chair was an Ercol 203.
After backwards and forwards with patterns we concluded it was an Ercol 204.
The picture proves it! Many thanks for your photograph & your patience.
Mr & Mrs Stevenson from Inverness
We enjoyed meeting you all today in your unique setting. Many thanks for your hospitality, excellent service and for the paper patterns too. We look forward to receiving our order in due course. In the meantime, here is a photo of a recent project using your seat base foam cushions for our Ercol 766/3 settee, 766 easy chair and 341 footstool. Hope you manage to obtain a copy of the Ercol book which provides interesting reading.
Thank you again for all your help. Good luck in your enterprise!
Helen and Alan
Mr & Mrs Stevenson visited us from Inverness and looked at our collection of Ercol antiqities. It was equally good to meet you both, we love good visitors like you. By the way, your lovely garden will cheer us up during the rapidly arriving winter.
Ms Misra from Salisbury
Your service was absolutely spectacular and I love the cushions.
Ms Misra chose her fabric from some pictures we emailed to her. She ordered instantly and we made the goods and dispatced within a couple of days. We like happy customers.
Veronica from Pembury, nr Tunbridge Wells
"The pew cushions have been a huge success, much admired and everyone is delighted with their appearance and the transformation in terms of comfort. I am very grateful that you were able to provide these in time for our flower festival. I enclose a photo which was taken during the festival which shows how perfectly the cushions co ordinate with the hand embroidered hassocks. Please feel free to reproduce it in your advertising. Once again very many thanks for all your assistance and many thanks to your drivers who delivered the cushions.
All best wishes

Emma from Driffield
I just wanted to email you to say thank you so much for supplying me with not only beautiful replacement cushions for my Ercol chair but also the fabric that I recovered my headboard with. They were dispatched and received in record time and I would have no hesitation in recommending your service. Top quality all round. I am delighted with how my chair looks and I am so pleased I decided to replace my cushions with ones from yourselves.
Thank you again
Emma bought one of our sets of Ercol 203 cushions and asked could she also buy enough fabric to cover her bedhead. What a great job you did Emma.
Mrs Woods from Isle of Bute
"Thank you so much for our new foam sofa cushions and for your kind, excellent and very speedy service. We appreciate everything that you've done to make our old sofa better than new - much more supportive and comfortable and much easier for Robert to rise after being seated. The extra height of the new cushions, as well as the comfortable firmness, has made a huge improvement for him for ease of sitting and rising. And I can't thank you enough for your extra service of inserting the new cushions into the covers. I never would have been able to do that on my own. Here are the before and after photos."
We were asked to supply new cushions for the above two special chairs, which linked together make the settee as seen. Mr Woods was experiencing difficulty standing up from sitting on the settee, the old cushions not giving the support needed any more. We used our very top quality foam and the result was pleasing for everybody. Thank you Mrs Woods for your kind comments and your lovely photographs. When we stop blushing we're going for photography lessons!
Joanne from High Wycombe
Note from Joanne:-
"Photo demonstrating the fabulous Safefoam products!"
Many thanks for your message Joanne, especially for the fact that you live in Ercolland! (High Wycombe was the home of Ercol for many years). Joanne bought just the mattress for her Ercol Daybed, in our light grey stitch. Everything looks stunning Joanne. I know why you didn't want back cushions, like my wife you collects scatters!
Mark from Reading
Thanks for a fantastic service.
Easy to deal with.
Very quick from first contact to having it delivered.
Excellent fit for our Ercol Sofa.
Many thanks, highly recommended.
We have received these excellent photos and a splendid comment from Mark of Reading. You were good too Mark! We all think the settee & your decor look great & our driver tells us that your village is so sublime.
The Ercol Jubilee 3 seater settee really takes on a Daybed look with this full length mattress instead of 3 seats and 3 backs as in its original Ercol form.
Mrs Cyne from Larbert
We are delighted with the cushions. The service was impeccable. As requested I have attached a photo of the table and chairs
Kind Regards, Mrs Clyne.

Peter ordered on 21st November and received delivery on 28th!
Peter asked us if we could make an Ercol Single Bed mattress with something special as a filler & cover.
We made this Reflex base with a memory foam topper all covered in a Coolmax cover. He said:-
Hi, Many thanks for the quicker than expected delivery of the mattress. It looks great (photos attached).
He's bought many cushions from us over the last few years, all for Ercol furniture. His first order was at the end of July 2013.
We are very grateful for his continuing custom. Peter also passes on our name to other Ercol cushion customers and so it goes.
We honestly feel very lucky to be blessed with so many good customers & especially during recent times with the growth in popularity of Ercol Furniture.

I am writing to thank you for your exceptional service. I ordered a floor cushion for my grand-daughter as a Christmas present, but knew that I was ordering too late for delivery in time,
I think it was the evening of 20th Dec when I placed the order. However you telephoned me the next morning and we were able to change the delivery address to mine, where my family were spending Christmas.
Sure enough the floor cushion arrived on 22nd as promised in your phone call.
My grand-daughter was delighted with the cushion and so was I by your 'good old fashioned courtesy and personal attention'.
Wishing you all the best for 2017
Mrs Carter from Cumbria is another happy customer! Thank you for your very kind comments. Nice choice of floor cushion!

Many thanks for a quick delivery and I'm really impressed with the quality of the product, surpassed what I expected for such a reasonable price.

The cushions are seriously great. Really well made and you lined up the pattern perfectly which I would have never thought to do. They fit the chair exactly and are really comfy to sit on. I was really delighted! Thank you.
Ms Thursby wanted us to makes two cushions for her Ercol 203 chair. She also wanted them covering in Dandelion Clocks by Sanderson. There was a little fabric left so a scatter cushion was added to the order.

Ms Bush rang to say thank you and to say just how well the new foam cushions fitted her Ercol 203 chair.
Ms Bush told us she had an Ercol 203 easy chair, we told her that if she was sure it was that model number then we could just send her the foams.
She chose our lowest cost foam and is pleased with it. The whole job was done for well under £60.00

Out of interest, the other company I contacted at the same time as I originally sent the email to you (who is based about 10 miles away) eventually replied last night.
Again, many thanks.
Mrs Kelly from Cornwall emailed on 18th February 2012
Good morning !
I would just like to thank you for your extremely prompt actioning of my order for replacement cushions, they fit perfectly.
We spoke on Monday, I increased the order on Tuesday and they were delivered on Friday. Excellent.
We made Mrs Kelly some Parker Knoll replacement cushions. PK720 Mark III is a very popular order & we do lots of them, we thank her for such kind comments.

We made her a special mattress for under her settee cushions to boost the height a little. We also covered it in a matching chocolate fabric.
She and her husband are very pleased with it, giving them more support and comfort.

Eveyone is delighted with the pew cushions. They fit so well, and are very comfortable and enhance the beauty of the place.
We delivered to a church in Benson, Oxfordshire a couple of weeks ago. See further details in Pews News on front page.
Keith & Barbara, Blackburn on 15th January 2012.....email arrived earlier, some further pictures the editor forgot!
After our first outing with our new homebuild motorhome I want to tell you just how pleased we are with the seating that we bought from you. They look beautiful and they are so comfortable when they are made into our bed. The colour way that you came up with was quite inspired, the contrast between the dark blue and the light is beautiful and fits the van colour scheme perfectly, the ingenious way that the colours are banded around the cushions is very clever it gives us the ability to have four different looks. Every one who sees it is impressed and I recommend Safefoam to them all. Thank you for a very friendly, speedy and professional service. Keith and Barbara
We worked closely with Barbara and Keith. By using two shades of blue for the cushions it presents optional choices for presentation. We were delighted that they are so pleased.
