Upholstered furniture began to appear in Europe during the 1620s. Interior design in the 17th century was marked by a heightened focus on aesthetics and comfort.
To this day, good quality furniture continues to bring a sense of warmth and style into the home, making it a pleasure to live with.
There are many reasons why people decide to re-upholster furniture instead of buying new. If the piece is of sentimental value, then it’s value is inestimable and worth re-upholstering. It is important to ensure that the frame will last the life of the new upholstery. A quality frame guarantees the life of the new upholstery and is the best reason to consider re-upholstering a piece.
Re-upholstery can rejuvenate your furniture or create a one-of-a-kind piece. You can modify arms, add or remove a skirt and/or cushions — there are unlimited choices when it comes to customizing your furniture.
