20 Years of ReupholsteryJune 29, 2018
“An art not forgotten”
Re-designing & bringing new life to a space can bring up the question;
“To keep or not to keep the existing furniture?”
Comax are designers as well as manufacturers of furniture which means we watch every step of production and know what makes long lasting and comfortable pieces.
We understand the sentimental value behind furniture and can work with you to get that desired end result.
When considering reupholstering, you should evaluate your piece, do you love the shape or style? Is it a family heirloom? Does it work perfectly in your existing space?
Reupholstering is about preserving and continuing the life of a piece of furniture. It’s not a quick cheap fix and nor should it be, Comax offers premium services and materials to give you longevity which is often more economical in the long run.
Reupholstery can often be thought of as “just re-covering in new fabric?” however it’s so much more. The process can involve stripping a piece right back to the frame, reinforcing the frame and joints and then replacing springs, all before the foam, filling and fabric.
Keep in mind with the saying “you get what you pay for” if you have received a few quotes and one seems way too cheap, it’s probably because it is. Cheap re-upholstery can often be simply covering the old fabric with new, a few staples here and there and within a few months you will need it taken care of again.
Choosing a fabric for your reupholstery can feel like you’re a kid in a candy store, overwhelmed by thousands of colours, textures and blends.
You might have a rough idea, such as you want a bold pattern, but it needs to be durable. You might want a bright colour, but it needs to fade resistant or want your antique restored to the original look.
Comax will guide you through our premium fabric house swatches based on your budget to make selecting a confident and exciting process.
The finishing touches can be the way to take something from plain to classic, and from dated to modern.
Personalise with antique studs to your leather ottoman, brass feet to that vintage armchair.
