I have two swivel rockers with a matching ottoman in my living room that I got years ago. The set is beginning to show wear, as it has survived two large dogs and countless cats. The fabric on the arms is worn and there are picks from the cats on the back of one of the chairs.
Hubby and I decided to go out shopping for new chairs this morning. First we went to Farmville to Green Front Furniture. If you check their site, you will see that they occupy 12 different warehouses, equivalent in size to 12 football fields. You would think I would be able to find something that I liked. But no ... everything was either too big, too gaudy, the wrong color, or uncomfortable. I think there was just too much to look at and it was cold in those old warehouses. So we left and went to a couple of chain stores and a mom and pop store and still couldn't find anything.
If the set I have was better quality, I would get it reupholstered. I'm just afraid if I put much money in it, it would fall apart the next day.
So it looks like for the time being, I will keep my old chairs. They are comfortable and I don't have to worry too much about messing them up. Just don't look at them too closely.
