Professional reupholstery affords you so many options in terms of redesign.
You can take a piece of furniture right back to its frame and add & subtract features & details as you like.
Take for instance this sofa… Looking rather dated, isn’t it? No problem. For $30 at the thrift store, it’s worth a second look.
It already has a lot going for it. Being a nice long, three-seater sofa that isn’t too deep, it’s perfect for today’s all too common long, narrow rooms. It’s also got those thin, gently curved arms, which will look fab once made over.
The quickest way to modernize this sofa would be to lose the skirt at the bottom, which makes it look tired and dated.
Next, reupholster the rest of the sofa in new fabric. For a really fresh, classic look, I’m thinking it’s got to be light to mid-grey, solid velvet with an accent of cream coloured, velvet piping to bring a little playfulness into the mix.
Keeping things neutral allows you to accent the sofa with graphic, colourful pillows. These can be interchanged to work with the changing seasons and your ever-evolving decorating style.
How about one last detail to take this sofa from bad to rad? You got it!
Remove the original legs and replace them with ones that demand attention. Just like jewelry for furniture, Habit has a number of different options that will up the sophistication-factor big time.
What do you think? Have I convinced you to give a tired sofa, like this, a second look?
