This sucker is heavy and solid as a rock! The upholstery has seen better days, but even so is still in pretty good shape for it's age. I will definitely take the skirt off to modernize it and instead of re-upholstering completely, I think I'll do a slipcover. This piece is exceptionally well made from a furniture company out of Pasadena, CA ( I lived in Pasadena when I was first married and our son was born there!)
Hastens horse hair filled mattresses which cost an arm and a leg......Anyway, I can see potential for a huge mess in trying to open up the cushions for reupholstering, so that's why I'm slip-covering instead.
I think I want to go in this direction....

Yea, I think I really like the paisley print. What do you think?
