Just make sure that it has a sturdy frame and good lines if it is to be considered worth reupholstering. If it is a very good quality sofa, and the cost of reupholstering it comes out less than getting a sofa of comparable value, by all means, go for it. You may want to get quotes from two or three different re-upholsterers for all fabric and parts, and then weigh it against what you would pay for a new sofa of the same quality.

When you sit down on a sofa to try it out, take into account the height and feel of the back as well. Do you prefer a tight-back sofa or one with loose cushions?

"The strike of pattern or hot sprinkle of stylish color should come from the throw cushions so they can be quickly substituted when you require modification."
