Nashville-area company reupholsters furniture to match new rug

When Old Hickory, Tennessee, member Peach McComb bought her home, the previous owner left behind some furniture. One piece, a love seat, needed reupholstered. McComb also had an ottoman she purchased from a friend that needed work. “The fabric on the love seat was threadbare in places and the springs were coming out of the frame,” she says. “The ottoman was lovely, but the fabric didn’t go with anything in my house.”

McComb decided to have the pieces reupholstered after she acquired a rug from a family friend. She says she wanted to match the colors in the den to the rug. “I bought the fabric at a nearby warehouse,” she says. “I shot photos of the rug to take with me to the store, and I knew exactly what I was looking for, I just had to find it.”

Once she procured the proper fabric, McComb hired highly rated J Priddy Upholstery of Hendersonville, Tennessee, to bring new life to her furniture. McComb, an artist herself, says she hired owner Janet Priddy after seeing the quality of her work on other projects. “She covered several pieces for a friend of mine,” McComb says. “Her craftsmanship and attention to detail was impressive.”

McComb says giving an artist the freedom to follow their ideas produces great results. The $890 project brought a cohesive look to the room. “My den looks pulled together instead of hodgepodge,” McComb says. “She restored it [the love seat] to its former beauty.”
