Here are a few of the questions that clients often
1. Should I reupholster my old furniture or buy
consider the quality of the item and whether it has sentimental value before deciding whether to reupholster or
A new couch or chair might cost less than having the item reupholstered, but not last as long as older, quality
Today manufacturers often assemble frames with staples and fast-drying
epoxy, using woods previously not suited for furniture frames. However, frames often last longer in chairs
and sofas built 10 to 20 years ago or longer. These were often built using strong hardwood and
screws. Screws last longer since they don’t become loose as easily as staples.
Remember, you can’t put a price on sentimental value, so be sure to think hard before discarding or replacing an
item that was inherited from a parent or grandparent. If you reupholster a quality piece of furniture or
antique, you will probably be able to pass the piece down to future generations.
