Hello AT,

I recently bought a vintage settee (made between 1960s-1970s?) and I'd like to know if it is a piece worth reupholstering? It's about 50 x 30 inches and I bought it for $125 because it seems unique (dunno who designed it)...

I have visions of reupholstering it in soft lemon velvet and lacquering the woodwork in white. Any info on its background or any ideas about reupholstering it (i.e. how much should I spend to reupholster it and best materials) would be great.

Thanks! Celina
