Help Sinking Leather Soffa

The seating position of my leather armchair has slowly dropped over the years in height. It happens doesn't it? I am thinking about turning it upside down and undoing the underside with a view to firming it up with something. Not sure what with though... padding, boards, expanding foam?

Anyone tried/done this?

Don't need new a sofa or anything as they still look good. Just want to sit at the correct height and no, I don't like sitting on pillows or something as it isn't as comfortable.



[no nonsense until I get some ideas at least, please ]

Sometimes the needs of the armchair out weigh the needs of the sofa or the stool.

Trade in your iron arse for a lightweight carbon fibre one. That'll stop the sagging. Might help the chair too.

Re: Sinking Leather Soffa

Take it to an upholsterers, the springs have probably stretched and need replacing.

Or, do it your self,. Stretch them and reconnect the rings further down....or, stick a lump of plywood under your seat

I'll vouch for the plywood option

Thanks Wrinx Didn't think about having to deal with springs

Talking from experience, me thinks

The armchair (and indeed the rest of the suite) doesn't have cushion type seating. By that I mean the 'seat' is part of the frame and build. Don't think a plywood solution would work, like it does on some removable cushion type sofas.

... goes off pondering a bit more
