C4) If in an upholstered piece of furniture you are using a Class 1 cladding and padding of 1.IM class, can the upholstered furniture be considered of 1.IM class?

No, the test method requires that you always test the composite "coating-stuffing." In fact it can happen that the tested materials have individually reached the best class, but the class does not guarantee the 1.IM if tested together.
