I recently purchased some furniture that was "Blind Tufted" and within a month of having the furniture it began to sag and look extremely sloppy and worn. Can you give me some education on blind tufting? I have not been able to find any information on the subject, although it would seem to me that without a button to hold the fabric in place, this would cause the look of sagging and flatness.
I really could use your advice.
I wish I were an expert on the subject, but I actually have not heard of problems with blind tufted furniture.
My guess would be that it was more an issue of overall quality than it is the method itself.
For example- this sofa- from overstock.com- is $471.00
This sofa, from Old Hickory Tannery, is $3600.00.
I would be willing to bet that the Old Hickory sofa's blind tufting would perform far better than the less expensive piece. Am I saying that you have to spend $3600 to get a good quality sofa? No. I think sometimes we can make a $600 purchase and feel like we just spent a lot of money- however, in furniture dollars, it's not so much. Am I wrong? Was your sofa more expensive than I am guessing?
Question: Where was your sofa made? North Carolina or China?
I want to open this up to everyone- do any of you have blind tufted furniture? Have you had problems with it? Are any of you happy with it? Will you tell us the brand and what you spent on it, how long you have had it, and how high the use is in your home?
What is blind tufting? It is essentially tufting without buttons. ;)
