Should I Reupholster this Inherited Sofa?

Good Questions

Q: I recently inherited this sofa from my mother. I know little about it except that she bought it at a decorator's showroom on the Upper East Side roughly eight years ago. There are no tags on the piece.  The fabric is not my taste, but I do like the shape.  How can I determine its quality and if it is worth spending the money to have it reupholstered or re-covered?
