The labor in removing a Grey Sectional Corner Sofa from Home Furniture, then fixing the guts like seasons with foam, then overlaying the piece will cost larger than you think it "should". Call around for some quotes. Just because a store has been in business for any number of years says nothing about the skill of the real upholsterers there. I worked in a shop that sell Home Furniture and had been in business for many years ‐ but the current owners had bought the business in the last decade.
They were not trained upholsterers. While they had been taught some upholstery they were lacking in many skills, together with depended on whatever upholsterer they hired. One of the owners also Hated antiques, so I witnessed many inappropriate things happen to those pieces, because they truly did not know any better. A decent upholsterer should have before in‐conjunction with afters of their work. Look critically. Are patterns centered as well as matched properly? Do they train in a certain type of upholstery? Do you get the sense you are being given an markup price, or condescended to? When looking to upholster a piece, I look for the materials along with fabrics myself plus usually only pay for the hand.
This is the cheapest option of grey sectional corner sofa from Home Furniture. Plus you have the freedom to choose exactly the fabric you´re after also probably get it by lower price. Also, pro tip from someone in the design industry: if providing you own fabric, be sure to show a swatch it to the upholsterer before purchasing if possible. It may need to be backed for stability, or it may not be suitable for your purpose. Alternately, check with the fabric manufacturer for its intended purpose with if they recommend backing.
Last year, I decided to purchase this Home Furniture sectional corner sofa that I repainted as a project. The seat needed to be revamped with new upholstery concurrently with batting. I took it to a shop in Alexandria, I took the sectional sofa into the storehouse ‐ I had pics on phone.
