Recently, we helped a local young couple restore a piece of antique furniture that has been passed through their family for generations. Kristen is a medical student at Wayne State University in Detroit and Dan is a regional sales manager from Grosse Pointe. The soon-to-be-married couple wanted to put Dan’s great-grandfather’s couch in the living room of their new home in Birmingham.
The couch is a circa 1850s empire-style sofa with beautiful soft lines. However, the dated upholstery design of the couch didn’t fit with the design of their new home. So, Kristen and Dan decided to have the couch re-upholstered by Foxwood Furniture Restorations! The couple has grandparents in Ann Arbor, MI that loved the idea of reupholstering the couch to its original glory and encouraged the repairs.
When it came to picking a new fabric, Kristen and Dan selected a high-end royal green velvet fabric. As you can see, the fabric gives the old couch a luxurious new look. There is truly nothing quite like real velvet. The couch also needed a few repairs. The experienced contractors at Foxwood Restoration repaired an unstable wooden leg and did color replacement on the wood frame of the couch. Now, the antique couch is as good as new!
