Wrinkles in curved deck furniture
Curved deck furniture is when a seat or back on a sofa, love seat or chair is curved in from the arms or out from the arms. We frequently receive calls from customers stating there seats are wrinkled and look misshapen. They say that there furniture is only a few months old.
Why is this happening?
When you have this type of curvature, the fabric tends to become loose very quickly. This is due to the curvature itself. As the foam padding compresses the fabric looks looser and looser.
What can be done?
Well there are a few options to return fullness and minimize these wrinkles. One is to steam the leading edge of the seat area, this will do two things, it will tighten the fabric and also expand the foam. The other is to remove the fabric and add a additional layer of polyester to fill the void. Another way is to remove the material and re sew it tighter.
Will these procedures be permanent?
Unfortunately no! This is one of the down falls of purchasing curved deck furniture. No matter what is done the wrinkles will re appear.
What is the cost of these services?
To steam would generally run about $100.00. To remove the fabric and re pad is about $200.00. The price will fluctuate depending on the layout of the furniture.
