Since labor costs vary wildly from area to area and from shop to shop, talk to local upholsterers before you shop for a vintage piece, so you know in advance what your final cost is likely to be. If your find is less than 15 to 20 years old, it’s probably not worth the bother. The quality is just not there on younger pieces, unless it’s a piece from a very high-end name like Baker or Hancock and Moore (to name just two).
