Underneath the Upholstery: The Truth About Factory-Made Furniture
Let’s take a look underneath today’s mass-produced furniture to see why it has become inferior to yesterday’s hand-crafted furniture.

Protect Your Quality Investment
If you purchased your furniture more than 10 years ago, it is likely higher quality and has more durability than furniture made after 2004. It is worth protecting your original investment by upholstering your furniture to suit your needs than replacing it with an inferior product.
Should I Reupholster or Buy New Furniture?
If your furniture is more than 10 years old and showing signs of wear, you may be asking this question.
While cost is a primary factor in your decision, you also must consider quality. Today’s furniture is made with considerably less quality and attention to detail than in the past, thus it may need replacing after only a few years of regular use. Upholstering your older, but higher-quality furniture protects your initial investment and saves you money, because the furniture was built to last longer.
Many people believe that reupholstering is expensive and can cost just as much as buying a new piece of furniture at the local big-box store. But what many people don’t know is that most furniture built as recently as 10 years ago was built at a higher industry standard than it is today. With big-box retailers offering deep discounts for lower-quality merchandise, even finer-furniture manufacturers have lowered their standards in order to compete with the discount manufacturers.
