To banish former eras from a home, it's easier to reupholster the furniture than reframe circular rooms or evict the orphan from the scullery. Modernize your space with today's Groupon: for $95, you get $200 worth of furniture reupholstery and related services at MOD Restoration on Third Avenue in Brooklyn. This Groupon is valid for labor, delivery, and purchasing of fabric, leather, and new foam cushions for the furniture being reupholstered.
Catering to young professionals with an eye for design and passion for fashion, MOD Restoration repairs and refurbishes furniture made of wood, leather, fabric, and metal. The experienced fabric-wranglers will reupholster your favorite couch, chair, or reclining kumquat with an inspired, artistic edge. Furniture fanatics can call upon the mending experts to tackle makeovers for their dining chair seats (starting at $75 each), ottomans (starting at $180), or throw pillows (starting at $75 each).
Put your Groupon's value toward an exterior for your favorite oversized chair (starting at $350) or new terrycloth textures for headboards (starting at $450), and Fido can sleep in a pet bed ($125 and up) sporting equal retro chicness. Residents of the five boroughs, western Long Island, northern Jersey, and southern Connecticut can enlist MOD's muscled movers for pick-up and delivery service for chairs ($75), sofas ($175), or two- to three-piece sectionals ($250).
When seeking prints to cover beloved lounging relics, peruse fine collections of vibrantly patterned prints by Kravet, Lee Jofa, Beacon Hill, Robert Allen, Ralph Lauren, and Design Tex. MOD offers 25% off retail prices on all fabrics purchased for reupholstery projects. Visit the upholstery gallery for firsthand knowledge of how minimal creative visions can turn tired looks into cocktail party conversation pieces emblazoned with artistic bragging rites.
MOD Restoration is the brainchild of Sim Fern and Hanny Lerner, a husband-and-wife team. In addition to dressing furniture in fashionable new ensembles, they keep tabs on their seasoned artisans who work throughout New York and San Francisco. They've made a name for themselves in the world of mid-century modern furniture and love resurrecting pieces by iconic designers, from George Nelson to Hans Wegner. While they work with architects, designers, and the likes of Ivanka Trump, they draw from a vast fabric collection from designers such as Maharam and Kvadrat. They also use these fabrics to make custom drapes for windows.
