Buy New or Reupholster?

It is no secret I love reupholstery. New life in a beloved classic piece. But did you know it is so much more than just new fabric on an old chair…

  • Customization and Personalization: Say goodbye to cookie-cutter designs and hello to a piece that reflects your unique style and personality. With an endless array of fabrics, colors, and patterns, you have the freedom to create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that perfectly complements your interior décor. From bold prints to luxurious textures, the possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
  • Quality Craftsmanship: Today's disposable culture makes finding well-crafted furniture a challenge. Reupholstering allows you to invest in quality craftsmanship that stands the test of time. By refurbishing an existing piece, you can ensure that it retains its structural integrity while receiving a stylish makeover. From reinforced joints to expertly tailored upholstery, reupholstered furniture not only looks stunning but also boasts durability that far surpasses its mass-produced counterparts.
  • Environmental Sustainability: Reupholstering furniture is inherently eco-friendly. By opting to reupholster, you're actively contributing to the preservation of natural resources and minimizing waste. It's a small yet significant step towards creating a more sustainable future for generations to come.
  • Preserving Memories: Every scratch, stain, and tear tells a story—a testament to the memories shared around the piece. Reupholstering allows you to preserve these cherished memories while giving your furniture a fresh start. It ensures these sentimental pieces remain a part of your home for years to come.

Now for the elephant in the room: cost. You need to talk with a professional upholsterer. Your choice of fabric, fill, trim, redesign, etc. will all impact the overall cost. It may end up costing the same or close to buying a new piece, but do the advantages outweigh the price? This is up to you.
