Frequently Asked Questions

Deciding if your furniture is worth reupholstering depends on a few key considerations. First, evaluate the structural integrity of the piece. If the frame is made from hardwood, reupholstering is a viable option. High-quality hardwood frames are often worth the investment as they are made to last and be reupholstered multiple times.


Next, assess the sentimental or intrinsic value of the furniture. If the piece holds sentimental significance, has historical value, or is a well-crafted antique, reupholstering can help preserve its unique character and personal history.


Consider the overall design and style of the furniture. If you have a piece with classic lines or a timeless design, reupholstering allows you to update its appearance to suit your current taste.


Lastly, factor in your commitment to sustainability. Reupholstering aligns with eco-friendly practices by reducing waste and extending the lifespan of furniture. If environmental considerations are important to you, choosing to reupholster may be a more conscientious option.


Ultimately, consulting with a professional upholsterer can provide insights into the condition of your furniture and help you make an informed decision based on its individual characteristics and your preferences.

Reupholstering can often be a cost-effective alternative to buying new furniture. While the initial cost of reupholstering may be comparable or slightly higher than purchasing new furniture, the long-term benefits can outweigh the expense.

Quality furniture is often built with sturdy hardwood frames that withstand the test of time. By reupholstering, you retain the durable frame while giving your piece a fresh, updated look. Additionally, investing in reupholstery allows you to preserve sentimental or high-quality pieces, avoiding the need to replace them entirely. 

Ultimately, reupholstering offers a sustainable and budget-friendly solution, combining the best of both worlds – preserving the past and embracing the new.


Reupholstering your furniture comes with a multitude of benefits, enhancing both the sentimental and practical aspects of your cherished pieces. Consider the following advantages:

  2. Enhanced Comfort and Durability: Reupholstered pieces often surpass mass-produced furniture in both comfort and longevity. The craftsmanship involved in reupholstering ensures a personalized touch, resulting in furniture that not only looks exquisite but is also tailored to provide superior comfort.

  3. Supporting Small Businesses: Choosing to reupholster supports local craftsmanship and small businesses like ours. This not only fosters a sense of community but also contributes to the preservation of traditional skills and expertise.

  4. Environmental Responsibility: Opting for reupholstery is a sustainable choice. By participating in the circular economy, you actively reduce waste and prevent furniture from ending up in landfills. This eco-friendly approach aligns with a commitment to environmental responsibility, making a positive impact on our planet.

Investing in the revitalization of your furniture through reupholstery not only adds value to your home but also aligns with values of sustainability, comfort, and supporting local economies.
