    Where in the UK can you buy them?

    There's one place in Brum, but they only have like two colours and they're tooo expensive

    Anyone know of other places?

          It is (very firm) foam with covers.. but I think it costs more to get that kinda foam cut and so on yourself and then make the covers.. it's an option, but obviously finding some decent ones for good price would be more straight forward.

          The ones in the pic are quite basic, the sort of standard ones you see around though are a bit more fancy and have arm rests and proper back rest.

            its not expensive, and its very easy to cut :p use a power tool and some vices to hold the board onto a work bench. and it should be pretty simple.

              I dont know, maybe you could try Edgware road? But thats in London sister, also expensive that part of the city.

              If i remember right there were two like Arab furniture shops there, ill try to dig it up for you later, but cant say 100% because i havent been there for a while.

                    Board makes it sound hard? They're not hard..
                    They are very firm, not like normal sofa cushions.. but they're still soft enough to sit on comfortably..

                    Someone must know where to get them

                        That's long!!

                        Who's gonna buy wood, buy the boards, buy the cushions, cut it all and stick it all together and then put a cover on it? No thanks :p

                        It'd probably be far more expensive, a lot less comfortable and lot more time consuming... but thanks for trying dude :meow:

                              Hmmm..

                              Maybe.. but if I was gonna do it myself that's still not how I'd do it.. I'd go to some foam companies and check out the different density foams and try to get a good deal..

                              Maybe I should just go on holiday to Morocco and bring some back with me. :D
