Sofa in a dated fabric with a skirt
|By recovering the sofa, there was enough savings to add window treatments and decorative pillows|
1) If your sofa is comfortable, and it's a good brand, it's probably worth recovering. It can save you both precious time and money AND it's good for the environment!
2) A qualified interior designer can tell you if your sofa has 8 way hand tied coil springs, and if it's a hardwood frame. Many of today's sofas are imported from overseas, so they aren't as sturdy.
3) Best of all, when you recover, you aren't limited to a small selection of fabrics the sofa manufacturer provides.
These photos show the before & after of a reupholstered sofa in Summerfield NC. This client said they always had a "love hate feeling about the sofa". They loved the shape, but they wanted a more luxurious fabric and a more formal feel. Notice that when you leave off the skirt, you get the look a new sofa!
