You’d be surprised at the magic furniture upholsterers can do to an old piece of soft furnishing; rips can be mended, worn fabric refreshed and extra elements added, and all probably at a lower price than buying a brand new piece. You can ask for reupholstery or furniture restoration of the item, to match it as closely as possible to its former glory or ask for something completely different to match your redesign. Trims, piping and fringing can be added for additional flourishes, new fabric patterns chosen, extra padding added, chair backs or headboards buttoned and new sofa or duvet covers stitched.
If you’re not quite sure what to do with your old furniture, try taking it to Hayle, Cornwall furniture upholsterers and furniture restoration specialists to ask for their advice. Established upholstery services will be able to handle all sorts of fabric upholstery and reupholstery, including leather upholstery, and recommend the fabric that will work with your furniture and design theme.
