Furniture Clinic: End the Curse of Slouchy Couch Cushions

“More than once we’ve seen this happen and it’s actually an easy fix.  The tufting is just an added touch”

With cold weather and holiday entertaining just around the corner, our attention often turns to our home interiors. Take a good look at your furniture from the perspective of a guest: How do things really look? A few easy updates can make a big difference in how people see your home.

My big problem piece is a sofa from the mid-1970s that I haven’t had time to repair or reupholster. To get one more year out of it, I updated the loose back cushions with symmetrical tufting. This is a quick, easy trick that I tried out on a love seat last year with amazing results. You just need a tufting needle, tufting twine and basic sewing skills.
