You should regularly flip your upholstered cushions (both the seat and the back cushions) depending on the frequency of their use. You will find that your upholstery will wear out evenly and your cushions will maintain their shape for longer. Do pay particular attention to the centre cushions on three-seat upholstered sofas. The centre seat is typically avoided by people – they’d rather sit on the side next to the armrest. If your sofas contain identical cushions for all 3 seats, switch the centre cushions with the ones on the sides regularly to ensure even wear, maintenance of cushion shape and protection for the upholstery on the 2 side seats.
Another great way to restore your cushions and give your sofa a new look is to decorate just the edge of your cushions with appliqué decorations. Tassels and small pompoms are really easy to sew on by hand. You can use them to create contrast, and really give your old cushions a makeover.
We start with a classic: the Chesterfield is a sofa with a lot of personality and it’s ideal for environments decorated in English style from the nineteenth century. We associate these types of sofas with the upper classes. In the beginning they were made by hand, although nowadays they’re manufactured in warehouses. This type of sofa has a low backrest (around 75 centimeters) and has a full upholstery with wide armrests. The first impression we get when we see a Chesterfield sofa is how comfortable and inviting it looks!
