Nice tidbit of info from a list I’m on.  Courtesy of Al Schlaf.  Now I want that book.

Checking my copy of A.T. Croom’s “Roman Furniture” (2007 Tempus Publishing,
2010 reprint by The History Press) pp. 5r6-58, the cheapest were stuffed
with reeds or straw, next best, raw wool and the best, feathers or goose
down. citations at Pliny the Elder and Martial, among others.
