Is there any real way of making a firm foam corporate style sofa more comfortable?

I just got a (free) couch, which I desperately needed and definitely appreciate. However, it appears to have been made at hard couch land. It has steel bands under a plywood board that supports a very firm foam cushion that constitutes all of the base of the couch. Are there any relatively simple ways of softening this couch?
It does feel bit corporate, as though I don't want people sitting in my living room, which is only rarely true.
The cushion is in a zippered cloth outer shell. It has a matching level of firmness in its back support (also cushions in zippered cloth outer shells). Those are less important.
What makes this foam so firm? How can I make it more rump ready?
Adding softer cushions doesn't seem to help as these float right off the sofa and onto the floor.
