Vintage sofa frame quality
Earlier I asked about the vintage sofa/loveseat from my grandmother's place, and the consensus was that it might be worth reupholstering if the frame is good quality.
I can't take the sofa and loveseat to be evaluated by an upholstery shop right now, but I have been researching online what makes a sofa frame high quality, and it appears that the sofa/loveseat are not.
I took some pictures of the springs and frame base...through a hole that is ripped at the underside of the loveseat. The zig-zag springs, not coils, are not hand tied, and it looks like I can see stapled frame...which is supposed to be another sign of lower quality. The corner blocks are nailed, not screwed. The pillows are stuffed with either batting, or batting and foam, and I can't find a manufacturer name anywhere.
I'm thinking about just taking the foam/batting and using it to firm up our currently super squishy/uncomfortable sofa ;-)
Here are a couple pics, can anyone tell what kind of frame quality I'm looking at?
