Sponge rubber/Foam rubber

Question

I want to refurbish some seating which is filled with large blocks of sponge/foam rubber but which is now very sad indeed.
Has anyone any idea where I can buy this? I checked out the places which I thought likely – Gamma/Hubo/Brico – but none of them seem to stock it.
Any suggestions will be gratefully received.
TIA.

depending on how handy you are with a sharp knife, most bed/mattress shops (eg Le Roi du Matelas at Pl. Fernand Coq in Ixelles) sell 180cm X 90cm foam mattresses for about EUR50. Chop that up and there you go....

I reupholstered a set of dining chairs about 8 years ago and had foam cushions for them cut at a small 'factory' in Zoning Nord, Wavre near La Bawette golf club.
The Zoning is on both sides of the N road and going from Wavre to Brussels is the section on the right.
I'm sorry I can't remmber the name of the outfit, but they were extremely helpful and not expensive.

Thanks for the suggestions.
I don't live anywhere near Brussels but I have got a branch of De Mattrassenkoning nearby so I'll check out what they have to offer.
