Does the furniture have sentimental value?

One of our customer found an antique rocking chair 25 years ago in the attic of an inn his parents purchased. He’s dragged the chair with him to every home and apartment he’s lived ever since, through four or five different moves, says his partner, Leslie.

 “Over the years, it got in worse and worse shape,” Leslie says of the chair, which deteriorated with torn corners, worn padding, spots of discoloration, scratches and a ripped back.

 He thought about throwing it out, but his partner became attached to the chair. So he decided to repair and reupholster the piece of furniture instead.


“I wanted to fix it up for him as a Christmas present. I also got sick of 15 years of throwing a blanket over it whenever anyone came over, because I was embarrassed.”

 He spent SGD $1250 with us to repair the piece of furniture and learning the chair likely originated from the late 1890s, he says.


“It’s an incredible amount of money to spend on one chair, but it was old, an antique, and the quality of the work that was done was excellent,” he says.

 Consumers might want to consider keeping and repairing worn pieces of furniture they’ve become attached to, such as antiques or furniture passed down from parent to child.Modern-Sofa-Set-Eden-R6032-8B

If a consumer gets rid of a piece of furniture they inherited from a grandparent or parent, they might regret it.

 “There’s no price to sentimental value, so if your furniture means something to you, think hard before deciding to replace it,” he says.


Even if the furniture doesn’t have sentimental value, consumers might simply like their favorite sofa or stuffed chair, either because of comfort or style. Consumers should consider replacing worn fabric on couches they find comfortable, and that fit with the overall style and décor of their home.
