Repairing / re-upholstering of upholstered furniture (classic or contemporary style) allows to make changes for improving comfort or esthetics, in addition to allow choosing to do it with other cloths or foam rubbers.

Re-upholstery will take more or less time to be done depending on the furniture's type, its structure, its shape and, above all, how deteriorated it is. The ending outcome is that the furniture has to be completely renovated.

Before continuing we must take into account that, first of all, we must thoroughly examine the furniture. Trying to re-upholster / repair a VERY deteriorated furniture or a low-quality furniture could cause that the costs that derive from this process could become much higher than the cost of acquiring a new piece of furniture made from zero (considering that, we recommend the acquisition of a new piece of furniture).

This process or re-upholstery / repair consists in the following points:
  1. Dismantling the furniture completely and removing broken or worn materials (cloth, foam rubber...), leaving only the bare framework (although, depending on the state, it would be necessary to see if the rest of the materials should be removed and replaced with new ones or not ). Care will be taken with the cloth (it's necessary to remove it with caution, because later you'll have to mark and cut the pieces with the new cloth using the old ones as a pattern, so that the new ones fit perfectly in the shape of each piece of furniture).
  2. After this, the framework is checked and repaired, gluing and nailing the loose pieces of wood, and reinforcing (or changing) the most damaged parts of it.
  3. Next, all the straps of the furniture (according to the state) are changed by new ones, on the seat and on the back.
  4. The new foam rubber pieces are cut and shaped (depending on the state, based on the old ones, or modified according to the customer's request). Then, all these pieces are stuck or nailed on the framework.
  5. Same as the previous one, but now with the coating of wadding over the foam rubber.
  6. We continue with marking, cutting and confection of the different pieces of cloth (based on the old ones, or changing them according to the client's request). Finally, it's nailed to the framework.
  7. Finally, pillows (if any) will be checked (and changed, if applicable), both of seat and back. They can have different types of filling (fiber, foam rubber, down...).

There are several reasons to re-upholster furniture. The most common (among others) are:
  • If we have a good piece of furniture, which has served us for many years, it would be more interesting for the customer to re-upholster it than to acquire a new one (it can be cheaper than a new model, the customer keeps the owned model that have had for years, don't have to get used to a new model, and avoids the possibility of making a mistake when looking for a new model).
  • Likewise, there's people who has furniture with a great sentimental value (or that are true antiques). Re-upholstering them will allow to restore them completely and give them a new life (and even increase their own value).
  • Finally, only the aesthetic motive remains. We all look for a piece of furniture that, apart from fulfilling the use we need, it also has the aesthetic style that we want, marrying with the style present in our house or company.
