Sofa worth reupholstering?
Our current sofa has been very comfortable for sitting and sleeping!!! We bought it from EA about 12 years ago. It is a light colored fabric that has seen its days! It has 3 cushions and a semi attached back. The back cushions look lumpy. The seat cushions are in good shape; I do not think they are spring cushions.
Today, I finally turned it over and opened the back to see how it was constructed. There are individual springs, so at first I thought it was 8 way hand tied. Upon further inspection and research on web, I think it is a drop in spring system. The wood frame looks like 2x4s you would buy at lumber store. I don't know how to tell if it is the hard wood, but it is not pressed wood. It has dowels, a corner wood support, and is glued.
I am debating about getting a new sofa or reupholstering this one. If I get a new one, I am going to go with a higher end brand like Henredon. Now that I have seen the inside, I am leaning towards putting this one in the basement, but not reupholstering. It has value in that it is still comfortable, but appearance wise, it not suitable for living room anymore. ( Normal wear and tear)
Still, a new sofa is expensive, so I would appreciate some opinions.
