This was a really good article. It is very informative and well written. Oh, and I still have my couch and love seat, which are maybe 25 years old. I had the couch cut in half and made into a 1-1/2 seat. They have been reupholstered and yes, it is quite expensive. I bought the fabric myself. If you have your furniture reupholstered, look at the person's work. Don't presume they can do the job to your satisfaction. Most will have jobs in progress. Discuss exactly what the upholsterer will be doing and get it in writing. Take a picture of your piece before it leaves . . .

Where can I find a down filled sofa that doesn't cost me an arm and a leg? I've wanted one for years but I can't afford $1000 sofa! Help!

Please help me figure out which cushion to choose. I am looking for longevity, comfort, and not interested in a sloppy look. Photo shows my options. Thanks in advance!
