In my quest for great heirloom quality upholstered pieces, I have a set of "go-by's" that help me determine whether a particular piece is worth the expense and effort to reupholster. This is an important question in this age of mostly-imported furniture that is readily available to the American consumer and often at a pretty cheap price. As I often tell people who ask for this advice - do not spend the money on fabric and upholstering labor unless you know the piece warrants the expense - and YOU appreciate the difference.

I only have one set of chairs (plus ottoman) that are Lee Industry pieces in my current inventory but have had quite a few over the years. I wish I could find many more!
