Chair seat height question

Barry Irby
I asked this in the thread below but I thought I would sort it out and ask it on it's own.

For a chair I normally make the seat 18" off the floor. the chairs I am working on will have padded seats. So, what thickness of foam do you use? Is there a density rating? and do you take the foam into account? Like maybe the top of the foam is 19" off the floor and when you sit on it it compresses?
