Dear AT,

A friend was going to throw this love seat in the dumpster a few years ago when I rescued it with the ambitious idea of reupholstering it myself (it soon became clear this was not going to happen).

It was already in a severe state at the time and has only gotten worse, but I love it.

The cushions are made of down and have definitely seen better days.

The springs are sagging and the padding on the couch itself is wearing thin...

But the unique curved design of the structure makes me think this might be worth holding onto.

I'm wondering if any of your furniture savvy staffers/readers might know anything about it and whether it's worth spending the money on.

There are two labels, one, "Henredon Fine Furniture" is sewn into the fabric below the seat cushion and the other, "The Schoonbeck Company," is on a piece of paper stapled to the base.

Thanks! Angela
