Although we jump at the chance to replace our furniture with newer and more updated pieces, sometimes a good quality couch or chair just needs a new fresh look. If you already have well crafted furniture, replacing it with new furniture of the same quality will likely be more expensive than getting it reupholstered. The wonderful advantage of reupholstery rather than buying new is that you can pick new colors, patterns and fabrics that go perfectly with your carpets, window treatments and overall design scheme.
