Aside from maybe your mattress and dining table, a sofa is the most important furniture purchase you'll make for your home. While you may consider dozens of options and break down the pros and cons by durability, style, and comfort while making the purchase, there is never a guarantee that you'll love your sofa forever. But by the same token, why would you fix something that's not broken? Would you replace your sofa just because you grew tired of its color, its shape, or the way its fabric is aging? What if there was a way to make it look and feel brand-new without kicking it to the curb and buying a whole new one?
