Part of the problem was that I couldn't find a new sofa like the one I have now - so an apples to apples comparison is hard to make.

The less expensive sofas were made cheaply and the more expensive ones seemed geared toward a formal sitting room and the one I have is perfect for a casual living room - except that it's well made - (if that makes any sense).

Altogether, with fabric and labor, I paid $900 to have my sofa reupholstered.

I estimate that a new sofa of comparable quality, if it were available, would be around $2,200 - $2,500.

Of course, underneath it all, it is still an older sofa - but I'd still bet that it would last longer than a cheaper new one purchased today.

Hope I haven't confused you.
