Feeling guilty about wanting to get rid of Grandma’s hand-me-down floral sofa? There’s no need to worry! Refresh that piece of furniture with a new custom upholstery job that fits your lifestyle and you won’t have to disappoint Gran for throwing out her beloved sofa.
Choosing Your Project
The first step to an upholstery project is deciding which pieces you want to renew. Some decisions are easy. The piece may have sentimental value or may have been expensive, but needs an updated look. When the decision isn’t so easy, start by choosing which piece of furniture needs the most work or by choosing which piece of furniture draws the most attention in your home. After you’ve decided which piece you’re going to upholster, then you’ll move on to choosing your fabric (this part is our favorite!).
Choosing the Right Fabric
Choosing the right fabric may be the toughest decision you’ll make when it comes to upholstering furniture. It’s important to consider things such as color, texture and fabric weight. As a service to you, our interior design team will make the process easy and help you make all the right decisions when it comes to your choice of fabric. Our design team will make your piece look brand new and like it belongs right in your home.
If you are recovering a large piece of furniture, such as a sofa or loveseat, neutral fabrics with small prints and a soft feel are the way to go. You want your piece to be stunning without being overpowering. When recovering a smaller accent piece such as a desk chair or an ottoman, let your imagination run wild. Choose a fabric that is eye-catching and will complete and complement the look of the room.
