Has your chair or sofa seen better days? Sit back and relax—we’ve got them covered. Furniture designer Raymund G. Agana offers three ways of breathing new life into old furniture. His advice for those who are interested in giving their furniture pieces a makeover: “Choose your fabric according to your lifestyle, needs, surrounding purpose, and aesthetic sense. Browse through magazines, and if you find the look that you want, ask your upholsterer to copy exactly what is in the picture. They usually make better works if there is a visual example.”
