Making Old New
Even with proper care, the upholstery in old furniture is only expected to last around a decade (15 years is a stretch, according to upholsterers). Constant exposure to various elements and wear-and-tear can do a number on your vintage couch or chair. When a furniture’s former beauty has all but vanished, it needs nothing less than fresh Philadelphia upholstery.
Whether you want a new look for old furniture, or restore its original one, upholstery services such as Allure Window Treatments can get the job done. Reupholstering is more affordable than buying brand pieces, especially if the old furniture carries some sentimental value. The landfills are full enough without the addition of furniture with historical or emotional value.
