Former Domino contributor Rita Konig shared her own Before & After with The New York Times style blog, The Moment. When she purchased the sofa, it was temporarily upholstered in burlap — which lasted about 2 years...
When it was time to finally upholster her find, Rita chose a patterned Allan Campbell fabric — and it looks fantastic! I love that pattern is making a comeback! She had to purchase 17 yards and she also replaced the foam cushions with down. Through her post and in the her responses to readers' comments, she outlines all the costs and decisions she made during the process. It's a great resource if you are considering professional re-upholstery!
