How To Make Old Upholstered Furniture Smell New Again?

Q: So, i just scored the most amazing Danish modern swivel rocker (not pictured) on Craigslist for our coming-soon baby's new room. It's in great shape, no stains, no rips. but it smells like OLD. :) I see a lot of great nurseries on Ohdeedoh using mix and matched decor like this and I just wonder what's the secret to getting things to feel new without re-upholstering them?
