Hope this is the right board.
Advice please - we have two leather sofas we bought about 6 years ago from Furniture Village, lovely red ruby colour BUT on the three seater there are areas of the leather wearing off. We have had a leather restorer in and basically he tells us its cheap leather composite (apparently a bit like chipboard is to real wood ) and the cost of repairs would be beyond the original price paid for these, which was about £800 for the pair.
NOW, we were thinking we may as well replace them with some decent quality ones (shame, as they look great style and colour wise) but we now wonder whether it would be better to have our 18 year old multiyork sofas (which the leather ones replaced in the main room) recovered and reupholstered?
The frames seem totally fine, but years of kids and dogs ruined the covers and of course, the back cushions which were feather filled are sagging and need replacing and I dare say the seat cushions could do with replacing too. They are currently covered in throws and in two different rooms and rarely used
So - here is the problem. The sales are all on at the moment, should we rush out and buy new sofas or have the multiyork ones (which would cost something like £3500 in the sale nowdays) freshened up?
Any advice welcome please.
