Usually an expensive sofa is in use from 5 to 8 years under normal use and treatment for it. (But of course if 2,000 people sat on the couch for a year, even if it is expensive, sofa quickly loses its previous form). On average, for a family of 5 people this sofa will serve about 5 years. Then sofa’s quality will be deteriorating, although it is still possible to sit and lie on it for about eight years (if you are Lucky). But experience shows that people do not like disharmony at their home especially if you can buy something beautiful and new. Thus they go back to the store for a new sofa : )
Inexpensive sofas serve from 1 to 4 years, not more, as this type of sofas is not designed for long use. Usually, the inexpensive quality sofas are designed for occasional use, such as in a home office room or in the country house. Of course, lonely people buying a sofa do not use it in a way that it can be frayed during a year.
We talk in order to help you recognize what you need, to recognize factors that will fulfill those needs and to create customized products following those guidelines.
This businesses approach is primarily meant for our highly-customization-centric clientele. Moreover, this approach seeks to help you, our clients who may struggle to spot exactly what you want and find yourselves confused between a huge variety of options.

Since the customized production only begins when the order is placed, there is a lesser chance of a loss, which is another way we can reduce our carbon foot prints. This will help create a greener world for our future generation.
Therefore, in the current scenario it is important for businesses to listen to our customers’ needs, taking the likes and dislikes of the customers very seriously. This is because the customers were evolving, and the demands began to vary from customer to customer.
We no longer have customers that are dumb and have big corporations dictating to them what they want. In fact, with the alert public of today, the power structure has been altered forever because businesses have to focus on customers if they wish to stay in the competition and this shows for many of our discerning customers.
Customers who are discerning in quality and luxury will be able to understand the reasons why our sofa will cost a little more than mass produced products.

Being able to carry off black is not as easy as you may think. Bascially, it is a strong, masculine and bold colour that requires one to be very certain with what you want before you can have it as your main sofa colour.
What can I say about black?
It is definitely a statement of choice!
That you know what you want in life!
It can not only be mysterious, it can also be playful if we highlight it with some cushions or Art.
As usual, you may want to get it custom made at Centrepiece furnishing so that what you acquire is not only one of a kind but also of top quality. And certainly, you may have to invest more into the sofa here but you only live once and i am sure you are worth it.
Why do you need it?
Because you have active and beautiful children!
And adorable pets!
So your sofas for everyday use need durable fabric. Cotton and linen are winners (but watch out for loose weaves — they can snag). Also terrific: synthetic microfiber, which can mimic most fabrics and is stain resistant. Cotton and linen can be treated for stain resistance, but even then they aren’t as easy to clean, or as durable.
Blends of natural and synthetic fibers tend to peel within a year.
Wool and leather are handsome and strong but expensive.
Silk is sleek but fragile.
Fabrics with patterns woven in tend to wear better than those with printed patterns.
Tip: Ask Centrepiece furnishing for a piece of fabric larger than the usual swatch. Place it where the sofa will go. View it in natural and artificial light — and see how much you still like it after a few days.
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.
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.

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?
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.
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, horsehair 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.
As a general rule of thumb, reupholstering a piece of furniture costs about 50-65% less than purchasing a brand new designer one. However, the percentage depends on the type of fabric to be replaced and any structural repairs needed to be performed by an upholsterer.
Of course, if your sofa is from IKEA, COURTS or mass produced, it may not make much sense to get it upholstery as it may cost you more than buying a new furniture from them. Perform comparison shopping by asking for quotes to gauge the cost of upholstering in order to determine whether upholstering is a better option.
