Reupholstering furniture can bring it back to life, much like a pair of jumper cables to the punch bowl can kick-start a high-school dance. Rejuvenate lifeless furnishings with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of fabrics and home décor at Needful Things in Marietta.
Needful Things stocks a plethora of fabric and a variety of home décor accessories to jazz up homes' insides. Fabrics woven from the nimble fingers at Millcreek, Waverly, Richloom, and Robert Allen ($10–$15/yard on average) can be hung over windows, stretched over chair seats, and pleated over pelvises to make a kilt or lampshade costume. Or homeowners can accent window treatments with a variety of trims ($1+), including tassels, brush fringe, and cords. Needful Things also houses furniture and home accessories ($20+), including pictures, lamps, and candle holders that can fill houses with evidence of your personal style. Meanwhile, Needful Things’ professional designers can offer guidance and expertise during design consultations ($50/hour), and an on-staff seamstress stands by to create table skirts, pillows, and more.
