Thompson Upholstery Service is a Green business, we have made a commitment to reuse, re-purpose, recycle, restyle and reupholster. We believe in preserving old furniture because it is strong and solidly made, and because we don't like to see it end up in landfills. "They just don't make it like they used to" is so true in the furniture business. Most new furniture is made of plywood, particle board and cardboard - yes cardboard. The average life span of a new piece of furniture can be as short as 3-5 years, whereas an old, solid piece of furniture that is reupholstered could last 20-30 years. It really does pay to reupholster.
New fabric brings new life to old furniture.
