My Houzz: A Paean to the 1950s and '60s in Pennsylvania

Midcentury Living Room, Philadelphia

The sunken den, off of the foyer, receives abundant light from a bank of windows. This portion of the home was added on in 1968 after the original owners requested more space to accommodate their growing family. Bobbie found the 1950's sofa second-hand for $10, and had it reupholstered. She chose Crypton fabric as a means to save the sofa from the cats' claws, which means that not only will the style remain timeless, but the sofa itself will always look like new.

    I'm wanting to get a couch reupholstered that looks really similar to this one. Do you remember around how much it cost to reupholster this one?

    The cost will vary widely by upholsterer and where you live. Are you in Philadelphia? If so I may be able to assist you!
