Wondering what my HENREDON sofa is probably worth?

clconderJune 24, 2009

Hi-

I would really appreciate some input on how much my Henredon couch is probably worth. It is 27 years old but the frame is in great condition. They don't make frames like this anymore! Amazing quality. It was reupholstered about 13 years ago and restuffed.

Any insight would be wonderful. I don't have room for it unfortunately any longer and I'm looking to sell it. Any suggestions on the best way to do this would be great too.

Thanks so much!

A 27 year old sofa that has been recovered and stuffed 13 years ago has very little value. And I would have to disagree that current frames are not made as good as those in the 80's (I sold furniture too, when yours was made).

You may be able to get a couple hundred dollars on Craigslist if the covering on it is good, but that will probably be it. Of course its not possible to put a number on anything without seeing detailed photos.

IF you cannot sell it, consider donating to Habitat for Humanity or similar. They are always looking for donations of usable furniture and will give you a receipt for tax deductions. Good luck.

I agree with thecollector. I recently moved and sold a fair amount of furniture. I have a Vanguard sofa in very good conditon and was told by a consignment store "It's just an old piece of furniture...worth about $150." It hurts but it is true.

The value in the sofa is that someone can buy it inexpensively and it is worthwhile recovering. The total price of the sofa and reupholstery would net a better sofa than one would get new at that price. However, I agree, it is in that age group that makes it "used furniture"

Concur with the above. Also note that reupholstery costs (fabric, trim, materials and labor) may deter prospective purchasers.

Perhaps you could sell for the "best offer" received.
