Please note that reupholstery is refurbishing all of the furniture parts that need it including cushioning and the internal parts. This is different from recovering furniture which means only applying the covering.
If you are unsure whether your furniture is a candidate for reupholstery you need to know what is considered a quality furniture construction. Keep in mind there are levels of complexity in furniture as a sleeper sofa frame is a bit more complicated than a chair frame.
A high-quality sofa frame construction would be a kiln-dried hardwood frame. The joints are secured, double dowelled, glued, and screwed together, (not stapled) with corners that are corner-blocked for added stability.
A good indicator of a well-made high-end sofa or chair is the suspension. Check to see if it is made with 8-way hand-tied springs. If it's 8-way hand-tied most likely a great candidate for reupholstery. Check out the picture of the wingback chair as an example of what an 8-way hand-tied suspension looks like.
Why it is important to reupholster
Now that you know a few things about a fine furniture frames, let's consider some of the reasons why it's important to reupholster furniture:
The vast majority of upholstered furniture today is mass-produced in factories in China, the furniture frames are not structurally built to last. No matter if it's a chair that is upholstered in fabric or a leather sofa, living room furniture shoppers are limited to a hand full of colors. This is to mass-produce large amounts and get efficiencies in the manufacturing process. This furniture is not a good candidate for upholstery and it's good to remember that if your buying a new sofa!
Reupholstery is environmentally friendly and helps the planet by minimizing pollution. By using this logic, you will not only contribute to the conservation of the planet's resources, but you will also avoid the unnecessary disposal of perfectly good solid hardwood frame by repurposing them.
Furniture and furniture components like upholstery fabric and leather are being held up with the supply-chain problems that the US is suffering as a result of COVID. This is a huge problem as many furniture manufacturers who do business with China have deliveries that are months longer than a year ago.
The furniture's frame is in excellent condition, but the upholstery needs to be repaired or you want new fabric or leather to stay up with the latest designs, colors, and fashion trends. It's like getting custom furniture for your living space.
