Could your home use a bit of a refresh? By now, many people are ready for a change of scenery, and the holidays are a popular time for a upgrades around the house. With furniture and home furnishings experiencing major delays and backorders right now, it’s the perfect time to try your hand at DIY upholstery.
Now that the lockdowns are starting to lift, there has never been more scrutiny and a brighter spotlight on how businesses will uphold the new safety and sanitary measures, both for their employees and their customers.
More and more people, from professional designers to DIYers are increasingly looking for environmentally friendly, sustainable upholstery that have a minimal impact on the earth. They want their space to look good, but not if it comes at the expense of the planet. So, they are moving toward more natural fabrics that are also recycled, repurposed, not carbon, water, or energy intensive, nor use toxic dyes, or chemicals, in either the processing or the finishing.
Like everything you own, including yourself, maintenance and care is the key to longevity. A couch is a major investment, so by regularly maintaining it you can keep it in it’s original ’store-bought’ state.
Outdoor furniture merges the comforts of the indoors with the pleasures of relaxing in nature. When the weather’s great, there’s nothing like grilling burgers and hot dogs, then staying outside to dine and watching the sunset from a prime seat on your back porch.

If you’re tired of your old pattern, or the fabric on your chair is worn out or stained, but you’re not ready to buy a new chair or fully reupholster, slipcovers offer an easy, inexpensive option to update your furniture with little effort.
Measurements are simple with chairs that only have fabric on the seat, but some kitchen and dining room chairs have fabric everywhere except the legs, and that can be more difficult. It’s important to make sure you have enough fabric to fully cover your chairs. With the right measurements, recovering the chairs in your kitchen or dining room can be a simple project.
Reupholstering a sectional sofa is an ambitious project. But buying a new sectional sofa is often an expensive affair — and an old sectional with good bones is worthy of a facelift. Reupholstering rather than replacing a sectional can make it possible for you to keep a sofa that works well with your space, while updating and customizing the fabric to fit your decor.
Wingback chairs are a favorite reupholstery project piece for many do it yourselfers. They have a classic, yet versatile design, and when they are reupholstered, they can take on a completely different look that can’t be found in a store.
