What is Reupholstery?

And why you should consider it.

What is furniture reupholstery?

Reupholstery is the skilled work carried out by a furniture specialist of providing furniture with fabric/leather covers, webbing springs or padding.

Reupholstery usually involves the fine art of stripping down the old fabrics from your chair, sofa or pouf and recovering it with a new fabric.

Fun Fact! Upholstery has been practised as far back as the 16th century, rising in popularity until the 19th century. Originally horsehair and wool was used but now more modern practising such as using springs and foam have provided a more comfortable and durable solution.

Replace or Reupholster?

In the vast majority of cases it can be significantly cheaper and quicker to get your furniture reupholstered rather than replacing it.
