We have a La-Z-Boy brand cream coloured leather couch (three seater and a two seater) that is about 10 years old and is starting to show its age. The leather is starting to show some cracking on the seats, and the centre of the cushions are quite saggy. The style still looks good though, and the frame of the couch is very solid.

Has anyone had a couch restuffed and the leather restored? To replace it with new leather suite of similar quality it would be upwards of $5k for both. We have two little kids so I'm not keen to replace it with something new for a few more years.

I have had the couch professionally cleaned but that didn't really fix the wear on the cushions.

I once got a quote to have 4 leather bar stools recovered.
The quote was more than the original cost of the stools.
No idea on couches but I imagine it would run into the thousands.

I’m kind of in the same boat. Leather couch just starting to crack. I’ve got an 18 month old and trying to hold on till he’s at least 4-5. Then I’ll replace the whole couch.

I had a spot repaired on a cream leather sofa and it worked out great!

It was on the middle seat and was like the colour was scratched off. It was about 3cm2.

The couch was 10 years old and we had it repaired a few years ago.

It looks fantastic. Can't tell at all.

Not sure how a repair would go on a whole couch that needed spot fixing but you could always ask.

I don't mind if costs up to around $1200-$1500 if it means that I get another four or so years out of it. But if it's more than that I think it would be better to live with it then replace the whole thing.

It works out to be around $60-$80 per scratch or deficiency.  But given you have a lazy boy lounge I would be outlaying the cost for repair.
Google leather restoration in your area.
