Re-upholstery can give older, quality furniture a look that is as good, and sometime ever better, than new. It’s a decision that many people come to face in their life. Do you get rid of grandma’s old chair? You know deep down in your heart you just can’t part with it; too many memories right? But the chair’s fabric is worn out, faded and might even smell a little funny. Its pattern has gone out of style with today’s decorating trends and also with the look of your living room. Family heirlooms are difficult to part with, but when it comes to furniture, you don’t have to.
In many cases, that old chair or sofa may actually have better structural integrity than any new furniture does that is available today. It’s all in the frame. Furniture that is fifteen to twenty years old have a hard wood frame and joints that are secured with dowels and special glues. Think of it this way, if your old furniture has stood up to daily living use for the last twenty years or plus, then it is probably a really great piece of furniture or it would not have lasted this long. Good frames do not wear out and they are the foundation for any durable piece of furniture that intends to stick around for years to come.
