How much will it cost to reupholster a sofa or chair?

With reupholstery, you can expect your money to travel that bit further. If you buy new, you can almost always expect to buy again a few short years later, so it’s actually more expensive in the long term.

The price of reupholstery is generally influenced by size, style, fabric, and whether or not your furniture is antique. You can expect reupholstery to cost from around £800, and that price will cover you for years to come. With reupholstery you’re making an investment so we want to ensure that it’s something you’ll feel proud of, and that’s why we’ll go that extra mile to replace any damaged springs or padding, completely free of charge. Unlike other companies who may just replace the fabric on your furniture we virtually rebuild your treasured piece from the inside out.

We’re passionate about providing the best possible reupholstery service – we want to give your furniture that “wow!” factor back – and our prices reflect that. The price will vary dependent on the suite, but we’ll be able to provide a more specific price once we’ve seen your sofa or chair when you sent us images of your sofa via whatapps at 90305057 Singapore.

Reupholstery is a traditional craft, so if you’re investing in the service, you’ll be supporting traditional Singapore workmanship by local craftsmen and women, too.

What’s the environmental impact of reupholstering and buying new?

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Building furniture from scratch has a huge impact on the environment – it takes around 1000x more CO2 to make a new piece of furniture compared to refurbishing an old piece. The UK would save around 1.5 tonnes of CO2 emissions if we re-used our old furniture instead of throwing it away.

06-environmental-impact

Reupholstering and reusing furniture is hugely beneficial for the environment – it reduces the effects of global warming, helps save our plants, trees and forests, and reduces the chance of losing some of the planet’s most endangered, and important, animal species. As it stands, only 17% of furniture is being recycled, and UK landfill sites are filled with hundreds of thousands of old furniture pieces each year.

According to Wrap UK, reusing and recycling our old sofas avoids 52,000 tonnes of CO2 eq per year. Not only that, but households benefit by over £320 million per year as a result of the sale of items through reuse exchange and avoiding the purchase of more expensive, or brand new, items.

So, it’s safe to say that reupholstering has many more environmental benefits than buying new furniture does. So if you are in Singapore and you want to do your part in helping with this cause.

Cost of reupholstery

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Reupholstery can cost just as much as buying new furniture, depending on the work required and fabric used, says Vince Chiang, partner of highly rated Centrepiece Furnishing in Singapore.

20180120_142242

For example, if you need a single cushion re-stuffed and reupholstered because your puppy chewed it up, the job could cost about $270. But if your couch needs a full overhaul that involves re-stuffing, reupholstery and repairs backboards, the job could cost between $900 and $1,200, or more.

20180429_154941

Fabric drives the cost, with a typical sofa using at least 16 yards of fabric and a typical chair using about 7 yards. Cost for upholstery fabric typically costs starts around $45 per yard. Designer fabric typically starts around $85; while high-quality velvet fabric can cost as much as $200, says Vince.

The amount of fabric affects labor costs — more fabric means more labor. Intensive or special reupholstery work, such as the following, can increase labor costs:

20180717_103654~2

• Attaching, replacing or fixing welt cords, or fabric cords that outline the seams of cushions and pillows

• Making sure that shapes and patterns align

• Tufting, forming patterns by threading through fabric and tying the ends with buttons or knots

Whether the cost of reupholstery is worth it depends on the quality and sentimental value of the furniture, says Vince. If you have acquire your sofa from the likes of Ikea, Courts or Vhive, the structure of the furniture may not be worth the reupholstery as it will defintely cost more than buying a new one from them.

Instead of buying new, consider transforming your dull furniture to a brand new-looking one through reupholstery.

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Reupholstering your old grubby sofa can perform wonders. It involves recovering or improving the look of furniture while restoring its original form. You can change the sofa color, material and design completely to match your latest wall color or room decoration. Reupholstering not only gives you the opportunity to choose your own material according to your needs and preference but also provides an option to economize on your budget.

Reasons for reupholstering

You may want to leave your sofa the way it is for as long as you can, but when is it time to give it a face lift?

Type. Your sofa could be an antique piece of furniture or one that carries a sentimental value. This type of sofa is hard to replace as it has unique craftsmanship and features that modern furniture lacks. Many of such sofas come with either plain or elaborately carved frames made of durable wood which is not only valuable but also irreplaceable.

Quality. The quality of your sofa is another factor that deserves consideration. If you have splurged on your sofa but need to cover an unmovable stain, it is logical to get it upholstered instead of replacing it with a new one. Usually, older furniture is considered high quality as it has heavy hardwood frames, high density foam or cotton padding and eight-way, hand-tied coil springs that enhance its durability and increase its value. On the other hand, newer furniture of good quality contains a built-in mechanism made of hardwood and has solid features like maple framework and eight-way hand-tied springs.

Comfort level and stability. The comfort level depends on the softness or springiness of sofa seat, its height, its material, the width of the seat, the height of the headrest and its stability. If you feel safe and enjoy sitting on your sofa all these while, upholstering it may seem more sensible than replacing it if the fabric or leather is stained or discolored due to age. Feeling comfortable also translates to accepting your sofa as a distinctive part of the room.

settee-before-after-1024x435

Cost. As a general rule of thumb, reupholstering a piece of furniture costs about SGD $1200 and above. However, the exact cost depends on the type of fabric to be replaced and any structural repairs needed to be performed by an upholsterer. Perform comparison shopping by asking for quotes to gauge the cost of upholstering in order to determine whether upholstering is a better option.

Tufted Indoor and Outdoor Patio Furniture Cushions.

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

We offer tufted patio cushions for all non-deep seating applications as our standard. Tufted cushions are stuffed full with pure spun polyester. Tufts without buttons are sewn into the cushion. Tufts provide that puffy shape and hold the poly-fill in place. Typically these cushion covers do not have a zipper. However, zippers can be added for an additional charge. Tufted patio furniture cushions will fit many different furniture styles and sizes and are very comfortable. Tufted cushions provide excellent softness and style. There is no noticeable mismatch between the cushion and the product shape. Our tufted cushions fit many variations of furniture seat and back shapes and furniture styles. They always look good because they are puffy and fill the space.

71xnccspzel._sl1280_

We have listed many of our main selections and sizes of tufted cushion for you to choose from. Our tufted cushion are constructed using quality polyester fill which allows it to be used both indoors and outdoors. Many popular outdoor seating groups use tufted seat cushions and do not use back cushions. For chairs, settees and sofas, tufted seat cushions have rounded back corners. You can choose how many tufts you want when ordering.

pillow-for-bench-seat-custom-bench-cushions-indoor-custom-window-seat-custom-window-seat-cushions-custom-bench-cushions-indoor-pillow.jpg

Tufted wicker cushions are designed to fit most common types of wicker and rattan furniture as well as other types of patio furniture. Wicker chair cushions and love seat cushions are typical shapes and sizes for most patio furniture. The front of the cushions are straight across with squared-off front corners. The back corners are rounded-off.

A tufted cushion is one that is made using a filler rather than a solid foam. Tufting is the name given to the process of sewing small circles between the top and bottom fabric covers securing the two layers of the cushion then filling the cushion with a fiber. These small sewn circles are called tufts. The purpose of the tuft is to hold the fiber fill from moving around inside the cushion over. Tufting a cushion in this way keeps the material inside the cushion from getting lumpy or uneven. Usually, the fewer tufts you have in a cushion, the softer and thicker the cushion.

71xnccspzel._sl1280_

Similarly, the more tufts in a cushion, the more firm the cushion. Density of the filler also plays a part in the firmness as well. Typically, cushions with more tufts hold their shape better than cushions that have fewer tufts. Cushions covers are crafted into the desired shape having one sewn seam around the circumference of the cushion. A small section of the seam is left open in the back for the fill to be added. After the the fill is added, the cushion is sewn close.

Can Rattan Furniture Be Used Outdoors?

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Rattan, a natural plant fiber, is both durable and flexible, which makes it an ideal resource for furniture crafting. While rattan furniture can be used outdoors, it should not be left out from season to season, as it will eventually wear out and break apart.

palm-springs-armchair_ls

Rattan, commonly used as the caning material to build the frame of a chair or table, is also used for the woven wicker portions of some furniture. While these fibers are extremely durable in both of these applications, they are essentially dried-out plant matter.

palm-springs-armchair-abw_1_ls

Exposure to constant sunlight, rain or continual changes in temperature or humidity will affect your rattan furniture, even if treated with a sealer containing a UV protectant. If using rattan outdoors, cart it inside during harsh weather and place a cover over it when not in use to prolong its usefulness. Rattan lasts far longer on a protected porch or indoors than it will left out exposed to the elements for months on end.

Talk to us to find out how you can better protect your rattan furniture and perhaps custom made some trendy cushions and seatings for them.

How to maintain rattan furniture

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

We’re glad to see a familiar favourite – rattan furniture – in the limelight again. Being a natural material, the vine is used to make furniture because of its great strength and durability.

20190102_133123~2

However, always keep rattan pieces away from strong sunlight and rain, as these elements can weaken its fibres. Humidity is fine though, as rattan grows in this climate.

To keep rattan pieces in tip-top condition, we advise brushing them now and then
to keep them free from dust
and mildew, which can cause the fibre to decay. Then, wipe them down with a soft cloth dampened with soap suds made with dishwashing liquid (to avoid over-wetting the rattan). Use a toothbrush to get into the cracks and crevices.

20190102_134557~3

Always distribute weight evenly on the seat; never kneel
 or step on the seat as the concentrated weight will exert unnecessary pressure on the strands. Spills should be taken care of immediately before they harden or stain, by wiping with a sponge wrung from sudsy water. If you spot mould or mildew growing on your rattan furniture, simply clean with warm soapy water. Then, rinse well and dry it outdoors.

palm-springs-armchair-abw_1_ls

To restore dry, cracked, or split rattan, apply boiled linseed oil with a brush. When the furniture won’t absorb any more oil, wipe it clean with a soft cloth. Allow it to dry or harden before using the furniture piece.

How to Bring Rattan into Your Spaces in an Elevated Way- Singapore

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

If anyone says rattan isn’t the most beautiful, versatile thing in the world of furniture, screw ’em,” Kamelin says when referencing her love of the material, New York–based interior designer. “Rattan and wicker is the equivalent to going to visit someone, and when they open the door, they’re barefoot. You suddenly feel like, ‘Oh, phew,’ because they’re welcoming you into their home to hang out rather than socialize. It’s softening and disarming.”

Start Small

small

If you believe rattan is an outdoor-specific material, I encourage you to think again. “I use it in just about every room, and I like to mix it into more formal living and dining rooms to add a relaxed vibe to those spaces. Try mixing vintage and antique rattan with modern and antique furniture to give your interiors a more interesting, collected look.” Our team also suggests easing into the aesthetic by pairing unobtrusive pieces — like a small rattan drinks table or magazine holder — with existing furniture, like a traditional armchair.

modern look

Say you have a vintage rattan piece, how do you make it play nice with your existing decor? Kamelin advises bringing in the material in pairs. “I would tell people to get two of anything, so that it has a cross reference in a room,” she says. “If they wanted to get, say, chairs, they should get a set. That or bring in something else in the room like a rattan box or planter or mirror. It’s all in the balance.”

20190102_132421~2

We know how to take rattan and wicker furniture from frumpy to fabulous. “If you’re working with a chair or a sofa, for instance, simply adding a seat cushion or pillows, or going all in with a new upholstery job in a current fabric, can go a long way toward making the piece feel more modern.”

Fresh new year, Reupholstery some of your furniture for a fresh new start!

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

20180717_103654~2

Take a closer look at the piece of furniture you want to reupholster. Is the shape still sturdy? Is the upholstery worn and threadbare? Will the piece need new batting and cushions? Asking these questions will help you determine the scale of reupholstering you will need to undertake. If some parts of the couch are already sagging, you might need to replace the batting. If the frame itself is weak (wood is sagging, splintered, or broken), then you may need to replace these as well…or let go of the entire piece completely.

mmexport1526988801379.jpg

Also, how old is the furniture piece? If it is an antique or an heirloom item of great value, always get professional help so that you can replace and reinforce the couch without damaging the piece entirely. The value of the couch may diminish if you try to reupholster on your own without respecting its original look. In addition, the cost of profressional upholstery will cost in region of SGD 900 and above for a armchair, or $1500 for a 3 seater sofa. So if your sofa is not of good quality, it may not be worth having it upholster unless it has sentimental value to it.

Lastly, ask yourself: How much time do I have? Depending on the extent of wear and tear or damage, as well as the size of your couch or chair, reupholstering may take the upholster at least a week or two. If you plan on doing so, make sure you have all the information you’ll need. There are many step-by-step upholster in SIngapore and we care not cheap as we cater to high end sofa, so pick us only if you are discerning with quality.

upholstering can create a brand new look and feel to your furnitures

All that said, if you are able to reupholster, this will breathe fresh life into the piece of furniture you’ve so loved through the years. Seeing it in its new clothing will also help ensure its place in your home for the years to come. And you feeling refresh for the new year!

Decorating with Woven Accents (No matter your decorating style)

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Rattan, bamboo, cane, they’re all HOT right now.  It’s what validates a “score” when thrifting or vintage shopping.  Everybody wants everything woven, basically.  And for good reason.  I would almost take it as far as saying every space NEEDS something woven.  Woven accents add such an element of texture, and texture is definitely needed in every space.  Another reason why woven pieces are generally always good is that they all seem to be unique and maybe even one of a kind.  Even if you buy a rattan stool from Urban Outfitters and know that 1000 other people will have the same stool, it’s still going to feel unique.  You could even claim that it’s vintage.  I doubt anyone would ever know.

20190102_133041~2

*If you are curious of the difference between rattan, wicker, bamboo, cane (plus a few more that aren’t as popular), Pier One has a great breakdown of woven furniture HERE.  In short, wicker is an umbrella term for anything woven (cane, bamboo, seagrass, rattan, etc).

Rattan: “The primary material used to create wicker is rattan “vine,” which is actually a prolific climbing palm called Calamus.  The production of wicker furniture often utilizes material from the entire rattan plant: Peel, core, pole and all.”

Cane: “When rattan’s outer skin or peel is removed and cut into thin strips, the resulting material is called cane. Rattan cane is used for weaving chair seats or wrapping joints on wicker furniture and is produced in many different gauges, ranging from carriage fine to the largest slab rattan. It has a natural glossy finish and does not accept stain or paint well, but is considered most beautiful in its natural state.”

Bamboo: “Bamboo resembles rattan and is often mistaken for it; however, one of the biggest differences between the two materials is that bamboo has a hollow core and rattan is solid. Also, bamboo has distinguishing ridges where the leaves were attached, while rattan’s leaf nodes are not so pronounced.”

Most of the rattan, bamboo & cane that I see used in spaces nowadays is used in a specific type of space.  The space that mixes styles, has a mix of high/low pieces – the space that a lot of people call their style.  But…. woven furniture and accessories can be used in ANY style.  Seriously. Any style.  The most traditional of traditional spaces?  The most minimal modern space?  Yes – woven pieces will always work.

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Now that tropical interiors are making its rounds in home decor, it’s official: rattan is cool again. Once commonly associated with your grandma or only with outdoor furnishings, the natural material delivers laidback, resort charm in spades. With everyone from IKEA to luxe furniture brands on board the rattan train, it’s safe to say it’s back and bolder than ever.

A brief history on rattan
Quietly, rattan has remarkably stood the test of time. Its history goes way back; the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt were buried with wicker furniture. Even the Roman empire were big on rattan furnishings too. In Asia, raw rattan largely came from Indonesia and were shaped into furniture by craftsmen in China; due to its proximity to both, Singapore was said to be Southeast Asia’s biggest exporter for rattan furniture. Eventually, the booming trade and colonists in Asia brought rattan to America and Europe.

Rattan revived
Its popularity may have briefly waned, but like the seventies, you’re now seeing it everywhere again . Want to come home to a lush, tropical retreat? Fill your abode with plants, global accents and natural materials like bamboo, and of course rattan. With its current, modern designs, you’d have no problem fitting rattan in your home regardless of your home design.

See how you can incorporate it into your home or personal style below…

Pink sofa, the unexpected colour of choice 2019

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Pink is one of those colors that’s difficult to work with. It got a reputation for being too girly, associated with fairy tales and princesses but, in fact, it’s a lot more versatile than that. There are many different shades of pink and they each transmit a certain look and feeling. So, when you think about it, a pink sofa in the living room is not such a bad idea. It can actually be an unexpected and quirky feature that will tie everything together in a unique way.

pink-sofa-and-striped-pillows

I really like how fresh this pink sofa looks here, surrounded by warm, neutral colors and complemented by those diverse accent pillows. A perfect example showing how sometimes it’s worth being bold.

pink-velvet-sofa-and-wooden-beams

Too much pink is usually disturbing. A much better alternative is to have a single pink element in the room such as this velvet sofa. Then it becomes a focal point for the room and stands out without making it seem like you’re trying too hard.

pink-sofa-in-colorful-eclectic-decor

In an eclectic and colorful living room, a pink sofa can fit perfectly without looking out of place. Throw in some abstract artwork, some patterned accent pillows and a striped area rug and feel free to improvise.


pink-sofa-in-industrial-inspired-room

Even a light and feminine shade of pink can look good in a living room defined by dark wood, neutral colors, exposed bricks and subtle industrial touches. In fact, the pink sofa balances out all the other elements.

pale-pink-sofa-and-striped-curtains

But, as we’ve already mentioned, there are numerous different shades of pink to take into consideration. Some are actually closer to neutrals than to other vibrant colors. Take this sofa for example. It may be pink but it’s not exactly super bold or dramatic.

pink-sofa-and-matching-artwork

You can coordinate the sofa with other elements in the room so it doesn’t look out of place. For example, you can have matching artwork, an area rug, a lampshade, etc. Keep the rest of the elements neutrals however.

pink-sofa-and-polka-dot-rug

Some shades of pink are so beautiful you can’t take your eyes off them. This mesmerizing sofa works perfectly in combination with the black and white polka dot rug. What a successful combo!

pink-sofa-does-not-stand-not

Don’t always expect a pink sofa to be the center of attention in the living room. It’s possible for the sofa to be a lot less striking than other accent details featuring colors that are a lot ore vibrant.

pink-sofa-outshone-by-greenery

Similarly, this pale shade of pink is outshone by the vibrant green accents. It does look beautiful in this setting, especially because of the brown accents and all the natural colors.

pink-sofa-and-brightly-colored-furniture

On the other hand, when a bold color is combined with other equally vibrant shades it doesn’t stand out that much and instead shares its importance with all the other elements. This is a really beautiful example.

pink-fabric-sofa-in-sync-with-the-decor

In a living room décor that’s so harmoniously composed, a more vibrant shade of pink would have looked less beautiful than this light tone. It’s also a matter of texture. Everything seems to be in perfect sync, including the fabric sofa, the area rug, the lampshades and the rest of the furniture and colors.

dark-pink-sofa-and-whitewashed-brick-walls

By comparison, the much deeper and darker shade of pink is a welcomed focal point in this case, considering the whitewashed brick walls, the flooring and everything else that contributes to a casual and eclectic look.

Although the rug seems to be the main attraction in this living room, the sofa and ottomans don’t lack flair either. In fact, the color alone is enough to make them stand out. In this eclectic setting, all these elements fit naturally.

pink-sofa-and-lucite-coffee-table

This is a similar situation where there are many other colorful and eye-catching elements in the room besides the pink sofa. The transparent lucite coffee table is an interesting feature.

two-matching-pink-sofas

If you opt for two sofas instead of just one, the color you choose for them should be less striking than in the case of a single accent piece.

pink-and-purple-sofa-combination

Another valid option is to combine two distinct and equally vibrant colors like pink and purple in this case. The wooden flooring and the black coffee table and the perfect elements to establish a balance here.

feminine-pink-sectional-in-a-nook

If you want pink to be a delicate, feminine color in your home, then emphasize these details through shape, texture and other elements. This curved sectional combined with the round table and white curtains is a good example to follow.

textured-decor-with-velvety-sofa

This is a tasteful color combination enhanced by the fact that texture also plays an important role in the overall décor. The velvety sofa, the fireplace surround and, of course, the flooring are all elements contributing to this result.

pink-sofa-and-matching-curtains

Coordinate the sofa with the curtains to obtain a cohesive design. This would turn both elements into focal points if they feature the same vibrant color such as in this case. By comparison, all the other colors will blend in.

sofa-coordinates-with-area-rug-and-kitchen-accents

There are other ways to integrate a brightly-colored sofa into a living room. For example, it can coordinate with the area rug and even with a few accents in the kitchen if it’s an open floor plan.

living-room-sofa-matches-kitchen-backsplash

Similarly, the sofa can match the color of the kitchen backsplash in order to create a visual connection between the two areas that share the same floor plan.

pink-sofa-on-blue-accent-wall

But what if the pink you’ve chosen for the sofa is not the only bold color in the room? Actually, two strong colors can be put together as long a they don’t clash. Blue seems to be a good choice in this case.
