I had an old overstuffed sofa that used to be my Grandmother’s.
The only thing I didn’t prefer about the sofa was the horsehair upholstery.
I remembered lying on that sofa when I was a kid. It would scratch my skin, however I alway fell asleep hastily. It was so plush with its thick stuffing, that you sank into it. When I realized the sofa was still in the house, I had to take it. There was no way I wanted someone to throw it away prefer they had thrown everything else that had belonged to my gram plus pop. I showed the sofa to my hubby plus he said we needed to have it reupholstered. I called a reupholstering supplier that was in our area. I told him about the sofa plus he told myself and others they would use sawdust to stuff some of those sofas. If this sofa was old enough that it was filled with sawdust, it was going to take a bit more work. My hubby told the guy who came to the modern home to look at the sofa, that he wanted it reupholstered no matter what the cost. The only difference was that we didn’t want horsehair for the fabric. The reupholstering supplier representative plus his partner took the sofa with them. He told us he would have someone call when they had an quote plus scope of work. When we got a call two weeks later, I was told they would need to update all the stuffing. Although it wasn’t sawdust, it had deteriorated since the sofa was almost 100 years old. The fantastic news was that they could customize material to match the blood red color of the original horsehair.
