Rated 4 out of 5 by from Came out nice - ah, but that Nu-fosm! Cutting the Nu-foam is a pain in the neck. It's great stuff, but get it already cut or switch to the green form. Ultimately, got everything cut. Creating the ottomans (I did 2) was very easy. You'll spend more time cutting foam to size.
