Top Reasons to Upholster an Old Piece of Furniture

Whether you’re moving into a new home or redecorating, you can’t help but notice old furniture that has been lying around for years. Maybe you bought it years ago, or it was inherited from a family member. Be it an old lounge chair, faded couch, or ripped cushions, the urge to replace old furniture is strong because it looks out of place, or outdated. But is it really practical to get rid of them and buy a new one? If you want to refresh your furniture, reupholstering might just do the trick.

New Look, Old Memories


An ottoman you bought with your first salary, the chair cushions you bought for your first house, or your father’s favorite chair - things with sentimental value are hard to throw away. That doesn’t mean you’d have to keep them in your garage so new ones can take their place. With proper care, they can serve as family heirlooms. Classic pieces of furniture can easily be modified to fit your current style. It just needs the right kind of fabric and skilled reupholsterers.

Client Testimonial


Thank you a million for revitalizing our Queen Anne's so beautifully! I told My husband that the style might date us but then he reminded me that the antique set is 1800’s!! I started to take inventory of the entire room and average age of furniture is 1800 with a nod to 1700 in wall coverings!!! We now have trendy fabric! - Happy Tucson Customer

Better Fabric for Longevity and Style


When choosing the right upholstery-grade fabric, you have to take some things into consideration: Do you want the space to appear bright, simple, or intricate? Who’s going to use the space? How often is it going to be used? For example, Mildew-proof fabrics like Sunbrella is great for both indoor and outdoor use. Aside from being easy to clean, it can withstand high traffic, so you don’t have to worry about it being used to often. Most upholstery-grade fabrics comes in different textures, colors, and patterns that can match any space in your home. The possibilities of customization are endless.

Environmentally Friendly


We need to bring back the good old habit of fixing things when they’re broken. The idea of getting new furniture may sound great, but nothing beats the feeling of giving old things new value.  Re-upholstering lengthens the life of your furniture. By simply modifying your old couch or chair, you’re creating far less waste, and using less energy. 

High Quality, High Value


Don’t throw out Granny’s Victorian-style chairs just yet. Oftentimes, older furniture is made with high quality materials & unique designs that is held at high value these days. Breath new life into it by choosing durable, elegant, upholstery-grade fabrics- making them looks as good as new. If you can’t find a place in your home for old furniture, why not reupholster and refurbish them? If it doesn't fit your home's style, you can easily put it up on ebay or Craigslist - that way you’ll have funds to buy a new, modern couch or chair for your living room. Fabrics That Go makes custom-made furniture to fit your style >>

Show Off Your Arizona Pride with Southwestern Pieces in Your Home

Arizona has a unique culture and that can easily be shown in architecture and interior design. This distinct Southwestern style is colorful yet sophisticated and can be used with many other interior styles. It’s not that hard to incorporate this style into your home. Show off your Arizona pride with these simple tips:

 

Show Sophistication with Patterns


Pendelton, cabin, southwestern, Mexican, serape & Navajo patterns have all have cultural significance. Most of these patterns use colors akin to the Southwestern landscape and serves as a testament to lineage and heritage.

Oftentimes, people associate class, style, and taste to the weavers dedicated to reclaiming this style.

In hues of brown and red, sometimes even green and blue, these patterns break the monotony in the negative spaces of your home. Adding southwestern patterned pillows with vibrant colors to a plain couch can be a great idea.

Try mixing and matching to see which works best for you.

Add Variety to Space


Some Southwestern style fabrics integrate very well with most Arizona homes. It adds a pop of color while retaining the cozy, inviting feeling. The patterns are interesting enough to uplift a space, but not loud enough to stick out like a sore thumb.

This sofa is the epitome of southwestern color. You can add the most amazing upholstery pillows in the style you're looking for to accent the plain space.

Furs, hides, and leathers also make perfect southwestern accent pieces. Fabrics That Go has a wide variety to choose from, IN-STOCK!

Update Worn Down Furniture


Incorporating Southwestern style into your home doesn’t have to be a major undertaking. A great idea would be reupholstering a beat up wooden chair,  an old ottoman, or a faded couch. Simply use the fabrics as valances, table runners or throw pillows covers. Stick with the existing palettes in your home when choosing a new fabric.

Most Popular Southwestern Fabric

Chaco Sage is one of Fabric That Go's most popular upholstery fabric. Custom-made furniture using this lovely fabric is available in our shop.

Using Patterns To Bring Personality To Your Arizona Home

When it comes to decorating your home, there are many places you can start. Some begin with finding cool knick-knacks, while others stick to throw pillows and curtains. However you start, just make sure it represents your personality! One easy way to do this is by using patterns in your decor. Here are a few ways to incorporate chic, quirky, or simple patterns -

 

BEDDING


When picking out bedding, some may stick to solid colors. If you’re trying to make your bedrooms look like a hotel, then a solid color may be your number one choice. To be more bold, have fun and pick out a pattern like chevron stripes, polka dots, or even something moroccan/southwestern inspired!

PILLOWS


Throw pillows are always fun to pick out. They can change with the season or change with your mood! There are quirky pillows with animals on it, or simple striped pillows that match most decor in most homes. Whatever you decide, make sure it’s something that screams you. If you can’t find the exact pattern you’re looking for, don’t forget that a throw pillow case is an easy and simple DIY that anyone can jump into.

CURTAINS


If you’re looking to add shade in your home while also giving it a subtle pop of personality, try looking to patterned curtains. When shopping for patterns here, it’s usually safer to stick to simple patterns such as stripes or textured fabric so as to not overpower the rest of the decor in your home. Curtains are also an easy DIY project. There are many tutorials online - some don’t even require you to sew!  

UPHOLSTERY


If you’re looking for a bigger, louder way to show who you are, why not pick a pattern for your upholstery? Whether that’s a couch or a chair, it’s another way to incorporate patterns into your home. The only tough part is that you may not find the right pattern to fit your home. If you find yourself running into this problem, this is another DIY project you can tackle. However, it is a little more advanced than making a pillowcase or curtain.

Should you feel intimidated by the prospect of reupholstering an entire piece of furniture, look for a company that can do it for you.

Tucson-based company, Fabrics That Go, is a one stop shop for this.

They carry over 10,000 bolts of fabric to choose from where you’re sure to find the right pattern, and they even have their own reupholstery service for those who aren’t interested in doing it themselves!

Fabrics That Go is a family-owned company run by a mother-son duo. They have been a part of Tucson community for over 30 years and going strong! Their knowledge in fabrics and DIY projects make them and their employees experts and are more than welcome to give advice on your future projects.

Your next Home Project: Add an Accent Chair

Accent chairs have many purposes in a room. Not only is it a means of providing extra seating for your house guests, but it can also be a way to add a splash of color, or bring attention to the style of the home’s decor.

Show Off Your Personal Style

Whether you opt for a classic wingback chair to match your home’s traditional decor, or a slipper chair for a more modern feel, accent chairs can give a room that extra pop of personality.

BUYING NEW


The Usual Route

Shopping for a new accent chair can leave you unimpressed, feeling generic or just not finding the style and fabric combination in the choices that are mass produced.

REVIVE AN OLD PIECE OF FURNITURE


Think Outside the Ordinary

Dig through your Parent’s/Grandparents garageyard sales, or search through OfferUp or Craigslist for that piece of furniture that has the perfect bones.

Often times, older furniture is made with better craftsmanship and more durable materials, so you will be left with an amazing one-of-a-kind piece at the end of the day.

When you have found your accent chair’s skeleton, you’ll need to find the perfect fabric to match your home's style.

Here are some of our favorite home decor style & fabric combinations:

Modern/ Contemporary:

To match the clean edges and sleek style of modern homes, geometric patterns are ideal to bring sophistication and elegance.

Boho-Chic:

Southwestern fabrics are trending right now, especially in boho-chic or rustic homes. An accent chair, or even a stool, upholstered with southwestern fabric will grab your guests’ attention and bring your personality to center stage.

Traditional:

The most popular fabrics used in classic or traditional homes is damask, a pattern that has been popular since its appearance in the 14th Century.

Mid-Century Modern:

The unique style that is popular in The Arizona Community due the popularity of famous architect Frank LLoyd Wright. If you come across a piece, a bright color fabric is a great way to bring a burst of color to honor the style.

Come & Visit
