Oak and pine were the most popular woods of choice. Chairs would often have split spindles, bulbous Spanish carved feet, and rush seats. Chests, large cupboards, and trestle tables were embellished with Flemish scrolls, ornately carved panels, and ornamental twists. These design elements made the massive Jacobean pieces appear very formal and stately.
While reupholstering certain pieces of furniture is cheaper than replacing them, not all furniture pieces are worth the effort. So it's advisable that you consider the age and quality of the furniture before deciding to replace the fabric on it. In some situations it would be more logical to replace the furniture piece altogether, instead of reupholstering it. So ask the right questions before you go through with it. What's the age of the furniture? How much longer will the furniture likely last? Would the reupholstering cost as much (or more) as the value of the furniture piece? You may need to do some basic checks on the furniture, to determine the wear and tear, and durability of the piece.
Wood veneers can be difficult to match. It is possible to buy new veneer strips, but they are generally thinner than the old hand-sawn veneers and do not always match in colour.
