Q: Are all fabrics recommended for reupholstering?
A: No! Not all fabrics are recommended for sofa or chair re upholstery. When selecting your fabrics or supplying your own fabric for reupholstering, some fabrics with deep piles will show where they have been sat on unless smoothed over afterwards. Deep pile fabrics which are subject to fabric crush are not recommended to reupholster items which have reversible cushions placed on webbing, as the webs will leave an impression on the fabric.

Q: If I have new cushions on my sofa will it feel the same as my current set?
A; No, as your current set will have become compressed over the years, when we reupholster a chair or sofa, the new cushions will generally feel firmer than the old set but should feel like a new sofa.
