We answer why today so many people choose to reupholster their furniture

More & more people are reupholstering their furniture. Sofas, armchairs, chaises, daybeds, dining chairs and ottomans are less likely to be thrown away adding to the landfill.
You can, often, buy a new piece for about the same price as rejuvenating your old, so why is this a trend? Usually there are a myriad of reasons and the following are some of our insights as to why people today are putting in the effort.
We are starting with this as truly throwing away furniture is wasteful. Increasingly the environment is driving the decision to reupholster, unloved furniture takes up a lot of space in dumps and the toxins from their burning does not bear thinking about. For this and many other reasons many of us hate abandoning our furniture.
Your furniture is an item of beauty, perhaps it is a designer piece, and hopefully over the generations it will be recovered and restored many times.
YOU GET TO CHOOSE
Textiles today are stunning. You get to choose the colour, texture and design to suit your space and lifestyle. You get to modernise, be creative, make it more comfortable and beautiful. You get to make it yours.
For the intrepid, ‘Timorous Beasties’ can be a wonderful resource, offering spectacular designs and ebullient colours.
‘Kaleido Splatt’ is on the sofa and ‘Totem Damask’ on the walls.
COMFORTABLE & WELL-LOVED FURNITURE
Your tired furniture has great bones, it’s super comfortable, perfect for your space and you cannot find a new one as good as your old…
…and with work we can make it better than it was.
For emotional reasons, you love it for its history or sentimental significance. Perhaps it is inherited, or your family has grown up with it.
We can’t help but think this is a very good reason.
Our fabrics are high quality and beautifully designed, we endeavour to make the process of reupholstery enjoyable and satisfying. Tired pieces are rejuvenated with new staining of wood, new fill. Workmanship in Singapore is excellent and it’s always exciting to see the transformation.
