This is a question asked quite often by customers. Is it cheaper to buy new furniture rather than upholstery the existing furniture we have? There are several variances to look at in response to this. Many manufacturers are producing bulk produced products overseas and importing them to Australia. Bulk produced products are done quickly and rushed as they have a large quantity to get through therefore quality and craftsmanship is lacking in the final product. The products used inside the furniture are also of substandard quality and do not last long resulting in a worn out look generally once the two year warranty has expired. When we upholster goods or custom make products we use Australian made products such as 10 year warranty commercial grade foam, commercial grade elastic webbing and only use upholstery grade fabrics. Our leather is either imported from Italy or the USA. Our work is completed by qualified tradesmen who are highly skilled and have 60 years combined experience in upholstery. Sydney Upholstery strives and delivers high quality furniture.

So is it cheaper to buy new or reupholster? In the short term it may be cheaper to purchase brand new but when you need to upgrade your tired worn out lounge every few years it doesn’t end up being cheaper.
