Actually, spring down cushions is the best type of cushion you can buy. Another excellent one is spring poly. The cushions are not 8-way tied; 8-way tied springs, which they use, is part of the furniture piece under the cushions; it also is the best type of springing for furniture. While in Hickory recently I visited their store and was very impressed with what I saw (and felt) in their showroom. And if you sat in the sofa at the front of the store, for the life of me I don't understand why you wouldn't like how it sat. It is very comfortable. However, like some others, I don't seem able to find much about them, except for their own website. I would like to find reviews written by people who have actually bought their furniture. BTW, it is made in the U.S.A.
