DO YOU LOVE THE STYLE OF THE FURNITURE PIECE?
While cushions and skirts can be easily changed in reupholstery, the arms and overall lines of the piece are more difficult and expensive to change. Keeping the arm style, the pitch of the seat back, etc. is something more permanent and if you want to change something like that, it might be best to go with a new piece of furniture.
If the scale of the piece works for you as is, that would be a good reason to consider reupholstery.
DOES THE PIECE FIT A SPECIFIC PLACE IN YOUR HOME?
Maybe you have something like a sofa that fits perfectly along a particular wall or a settee that is the perfect size and shape for the entryway across from your front doors.
If everything about your piece is just right, but the fabric is simply faded, worn and outdated, then reupholstery would be a great option.
DOES THE FURNITURE HAVE SENTIMENTAL VALUE?
Is this heirloom furniture? Did it come from your parents’ or grandparents’ homes?
Furniture made over 30 years ago had different manufacturing processes than they do today and were actually designed to be reupholstered time and time again. Older upholstered pieces generally had solid wood frames and can be well worth the investment of reupholstery.
IS THE FURNITURE WELL BUILT?
A solid wood frame and 8-way hand tied coil spring construction indicate a quality piece of furniture that would be a good candidate for reupholstery. A plywood frame is not worth the cost of reupholstering.
Here’s a pretty quick way for you to check your piece, If the legs are part of the piece, going up through the seat, the back legs in particular, then it is a sturdier, better constructed design than if they simply screw in place.
DO YOU WANT TO CREATE A TRULY CUSTOMIZED PIECE?
You will have greater design flexibility going with reupholstery. We have all kinds of detailing options available such as contrasting welts, unique nailheads, blending leather with fabrics, adding or removing buttons, channels and tufting, etc. You can even change up the finish on any exposed wood elements on the piece too.
Working with an upholstery workroom or designer to create something special that is completely unique to your specific style allows you a lot of flexibility to give you that stunning one of a kind piece.
REDUCE ~ REUSE ~ RECYCLE
We help to sustain our environment by keeping good solid wood furniture out of our landfills. While reupholstery may not be less expensive than purchasing new, the lasting effects of saving pieces from littering our world will make a far greater impact than purchasing a new piece made of inferior woods that is designed only to last a few years.
