Has anyone ever had their sofa reupholstered and if so, who did you use and was it much cheaper than buying a new suite?

I have a comfy sofa and chairs and am thinking of getting them recovered rather than buying new, but I don't want to spend a fortune.

Member of family had a very old Gplan suite stripped down and re-covered with new foam and modern fabric. Merebrooks West kirby. Cost getting on for nearly as much as a new suite (but she liked the frames shape and size. Looked fabulous when finished. It lasted about 6/7 years with very light use by a skinny person, then when it was moved to a new house with two heavier people,after just 3 mths, the foam seemed to give up the ghost and sink in, all along where your back should be supported . It never recovered and had to be replaced. Having seen that, personally Id never bother reupholstering, Id go for Plumbs covers , or a new suite.

If you go down the new suite route have a look at Sofa Sofa . We had a couple from them 4 years ago as we liked their designs and they seem to be pretty good on price.
