Before & After: Furniture Makeovers That’ll Make You Do A Double Take

Whether it’s your great aunt’s forgotten sofa or a divine (albeit tattered) wingback chair salvaged from SOWA – furniture that was constructed well is worth fighting for.

OK, maybe not worth fighting for in the literal sense. But, great furniture is worth investing in a proper re-upholstery job. After all, solid vintage items built back when expert carpentry was the norm can last longer than a lifetime, if restored back into the stunning showpieces they really are.

The benefits of investing in once great furniture became evident after a recent trip to Zimman’s – the nationally known home décor and fabric destination located in Lynn.

Not only can their team of knowledgeable designers and expert craftspeople transform your furniture by applying exquisite fabric – (they offer over 50,000 textile options) – they breathe new life into it by stripping it to its frame, re-gluing its joints, tightening its springs, adding new cushions and polishing dated woodwork.

Here are incredible before and after images of great chairs and couches saved by Zimman’s and the owners who loved them enough to make them shine again.
