Zarin Home: Design Made Simple

Why Reupholster at all? Why not just buy new furniture?

What a lot of people do when they are buying furniture is that they seem to buy it because of how it looks, not the quality.  Furniture is expensive and people almost never research or really learn about its quality before they buy. Since they don't know a lot about what they are getting, they wont know if they are getting a high quality piece of furniture and a good price for what they are getting. Many people do not understand the advantages of reupholstering with new fillers and fabric. So let me explain a couple of reasons to reupholster at all.


Let me just say it plain and simple: you are using less resources. Now let me go a little bit more in depth into what that means. When you buy a new sofa, you use more resources like wood from the earth, which requires a tree to be chopped down. That's just common knowledge. But, when you have a company reupholster an old sofa, and make the old one better, you aren't using that many resources. Some of the materials used in re-upholstery are also good for the environment. Many fabrics use recycled materials and environmentally low impact methods. But that isn't all, Polyester Dacron is used for padding and cushion wrapping and also has recycled components.


In your life, your style will probably change. Maybe you used to like leather furniture but now you like velvet. But that is not a reason to waste your old furniture. For some people it could be that there are pets in their home and they need a material that is easier to clean. This can be solved with the help of Zarin Fabrics. Just because you decide you don't like a certain piece or you cannot have it because of pets or children, then you can simply have us reupholster it for you!
