Furniture & Accessories

I advised these Plano clients that they should not reupholster for the purpose of saving money. There were other great reasons to do so, however! Reupholstery is a great choice:
- When furniture has sentimental meaning. Recovering the piece will allow you to incorporate it into your current decor.
- When furniture is incredibly comfortable. Reupholstery will allow you to enjoy it for another 10 years!
- When the size, scale or design of existing furniture is just right and is not commonly seen for sale.
- When a room needs a specific hue or pattern to tie things together and these are not readily available in affordable, retail furniture.
This arm chair is one of a pair that we re-purposed. We considered purchasing new chairs. We did shop. It was certainly possible to buy a new pair of wing chairs for the same cost as reupholstering, but not in a color or pattern that worked nearly this well for us!
