What is upholstery, anyway?
The first thing that springs to mind for most of us when we hear the word upholstery is fabric, marvelous fabric! While fabric choice is paramount to creating the perfect piece for your space, what lies beneath is just as important. Upholstery is the materials that make up the soft coverings of sofas, chairs, and other furniture. This includes fabric, webbing, springs, and padding, and opting for quality materials will extend the life and enjoyment of your furniture.
Should I reupholster my sofa (or chair, or ottoman….), or buy new?
Consider the value when deciding whether to reupholster your piece. Antique furniture and well-made pieces are worth the investment. Check the bones. Quality furniture is made of hard wood and held together with dowels rather than staples or glue. If a piece has sentimental value to you or fits perfectly in your space, it may also be worth reupholstering. If your furniture was made in the last ten years and is already beginning to look shabby, it may be time to let it go and start fresh.
