Reupholstery for 3 Generation Family Couch

before couch reupholsteryDo you have a couch that needs to be reupholstered? 

That is what one of our clients, Patty, needed for her antique couch. This couch had been Patty’s family for three generations. She recalls having many fond memories of sitting on the couch as a little girl. However, time had taken its toll on the furniture. The fabric was worn and lost its vibrant color. The couch’s seams are falling apart with the filling spilling out. The back cushion of the furniture was distorted. This family couch needed some special attention. Fortunately, Patty came to the right place! Foxwood Furniture Restorations was more than ready to restore this couch!

Getting New Material

This couch needed completely new upholstery due to the state of the fabric. Patty wanted the couch to feel and look similar to the original fabric. In order to restore this family heirloom, we directed our client to our upholstery fabric website. After Patty picked out six different samples, we sent the samples directly to her home. Our client chose the red fabric that felt similar to the couch’s original texture.

With the new material, Foxwood could finally get to work on restoring this sentimental heirloom!

Complete Couch Reupholstery

In order to breathe some life back into this couch, our team stripped the old material away so we could start the furniture reupholstery process! We put new filling to return the couch to its original shape. Afterward, we covered the entire piece with the new vibrant red material that Patty selected! We added a beaded tack strip to add an extra touch of class to the antique couch. Our specialists polished the wood to give the couch a new shine as well. Patty was very happy about the transformation of this family heirloom!
