We are often asked about re-upholstery of sofas and we have done this for many of our customers who have had one of our sofas in use for many many years. We love that customers would prefer to re-upholster a sofa rather than replacing it, but we know how expensive it seems if it is compared to purchasing new. If a customer has a good quality sofa, for example one of ours, it is worthwhile to maintain it. So for those looking for a new sofa, investing in a good quality frame right from the start will ensure that your sofa can last for decades, easily outlasting any fabric or leather. Choosing a high quality fabric is then also very important to give the longest life possible before re-upholstery is needed.
There is an alternative to re-upholstery, which can be considered when purchasing a new sofa or considering re-upholstery. That is to have a washable loose cover made. This entails having your sofa upholstered in a plain canvas and a washable loose cover custom fitted to it. Many fabrics are drycleanable, and there are beautiful cotton canvas fabrics which can be hand or machine washed. Each of our sofa styles suits a loose cover so when purchasing a new sofa from us you will be given this option. As is seen in these images of our Mika modular, our loose covers are tight-fitting, and with credit to Helena's skilled pattern making and sewing, not easily recognisable as loose covers.
