I have a low headroom ceiling over a staircase which I want to pad with something. I'm thinking foam interior with an outward facing leather for looks. How do I make it look nice? [more inside]
I tried various models of Sleep Number mattress in their store, and I liked how well even the lower-end models (C2/C4) conformed to my body. However, when I got off the C2, I noticed that the edge collapsed, since it is foam. I am just under 6'0" and roughly 200 lbs. My "number" was 35 on the C2 and 40 on the C4. As they are only 8" and 9" thick, respectively, can anyone tell me from experience or otherwise if "bottoming out" will be a problem during the night? If so, will a memory foam topper solve this issue? [more inside]
I haven't been sleeping well. Including all winter. I have a crappy polyester comforter and Target Jersey Cotten Sheets, and a $600 10 inch memory foam mattress from Amazon with two memory foam pillows. So - basically everything that would make me overheat. Would adding a Latex Topper to the mix fix a lot of problems? [more inside]

Is it a bad idea to fill the air gap in between double brick walls? Our 100 year old house is in need of some insulation so we had a couple of companies give us a quote. One company recommended spraying Air Krete (a kind of foam insulation) in the gap between our double brick walls. The other company said this was a horrible idea and could damage our house! They said to rip out the plaster & lathe and install interior insulation. [more inside]

Our local bookstore has a great children's play/reading area. In that area, there is a (child-sized) chair and table set. The chairs look like this. The table is a similar pattern. They seem to be made of some kind of high-density foam - they are sturdy and moderately heavy for their size, but have some "give" to them; they are not wood or plastic. I can't see any markings on the chairs or the table and no one at the store knew where they were from. Any ideas of where I can find these?

I have noticed that in most portable gun cases which are hard plastic on the outside with a foam core inside there seems to be pieces of shiny glass embedded in the foam. I have only noticed this in gun case foam not other types of foam for example, the foam inside couch cushions or bedding. Why would they put glass inside gun case foam?

How long does it take a couch to stop offgassing? I assembled a new Ikea Karlstad sofa five days ago, and while the odor has decreased a bit, it still smells.
