What is "cushion shelf" - Definition & Explanation

Term used to describe the depression on the deck of a sofa or chair created where the front band meets the deck, and is sewn to the underlying layers of cloth. This also creates a slight rise in the front band, which helps prevent the cushion from sliding off the furniture.
