Letter of Upholstery
There are a lot of questions on how much money to reupholster compared to buying new. All professionals in this trade have a reputation that goes back to the blacksmith days. And people still think that the price to reupholster is well lower than buying new. The 1950s was a big swing in the reupholstery trade. Not a real big manufacturing base at that time. The cost was down in supplies, fabric, etc. Small trades were the mainstay back then as well. Then the manufacturers got smart and decided to do some ad campaigns to their favor. They wanted to get the market back. Well! We professionals now see they did their work well! Today they put a class life of no more than two years on the products they sell. They don’t want the stuff to last. It would put them out of business. They need to keep the lines going. The consumer today has no idea that the chair they just bought is upholstered on an assembly line in only 7 minutes. And that sofa just delivered was put together in 30 minutes.
At the factory, all the pieces are cut and pre-sewn, in bulk, then they grab some guy off the street and hand them a staple gun. Springs? What springs! The days of the coil base in furniture are almost gone. There are a few that still have these available, and only a few that offer an 8-way tie anymore. Some manufacturers can still provide them, but have subcontractors come in to do the coil spring tying.
The next time you say you can buy a new one for that much, you are correct. But that piece you are thinking about having upholstered is far better constructed than what you can get nowadays. With the fabrics and materials, I have available, the finished product from me will outperform anything you’re thinking about that is new. A true professional is a stickler to detail. Jo & I will be the ones that cut, sew, and apply all of the components to your furniture, we do all the work. All the materials used are of the highest grade. We don’t skimp on quality.
