Around here, we love coming across ways to get a little more mileage out of our well-loved basics. So when I came across a genius idea about how to revitalize a 6-year-old saggy sofa with a quick trip to the craft store, I just had to try it for myself. My parents‘ poor 15+-year-old overstuffed leather sofa was years past being "overstuffed" and was starting to look really grumpy- like. However sad and grumpy, it´s a much-loved, quality piece of furniture so I was excited to add a few more miles to its already long and generous life.
Before you start, remove your jewelry, especially rings. I almost lost mine in the process! To give yourself room to work on the seat backs, remove all the seat cushions and set them in a clean workspace. Grab a large amount of Poly-fil and begin to shove it up inside the cushion, making sure to position it behind any foam or pillow that may already be in the cushion.
For a modern, clean look, try placing pillows in contrasting shapes right beside each other on one side of the sofa. The consistency in color ensures continuity. Try clustering trios of geometrically-patterned pillows together. Space them out between each sofa cushion for a look that’s anchored, yet casually rustic at the same time.
