Couch pillow shape repair

Is there anyway to repair the cushions within a leather couch.
I hate the way this looks and Id rather not go out and purchase a brand new couch unless I have to.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Repair what?

I see an older couch that has got marks like a pair of comfortable shoes.

Re-stuff the cushions to fuller condition, easy task, pull the leather off and get new foam!

The leather looks to be in ok shape.
It may be time to re-stuff the cushions. Some stronger foam.

If you're doing this yourself, you want to wrap the foam with dacron to make them softer and more comfortable. The back cushions will have a different density than the seat cushions. FYI, foam is really, really pricey right now.

Thanks all.
I’d imagine that replacing the cushions will help with the wrinkles in the leather?

Also, do the cushions have to be cut to sized upon replacement? I’m not even sure where to purchase them for my specific couch.

In our area we have several "Foam Factory" shops that sell nothing but foam produces!

Yes, the foam must be cut to the size needed to fit your cushions. A hot wire or electric carving knife work well. Then after the foam is cut to the correct size I use spray adhesive to adhere fabric (the Dacron Shadeladie mentioned) to the outside of the cushion. This will make it "slippery" and a lot easier to stuff into the leather so it doesn't want to stick and will lay properly.
