Let’s say the springs groan each time you sink into your obviously tired sofa. Or you’ve grown bored with those taupe calico chair covers that once seemed so tasteful. Frank Cangelosi, owner and chief stuffer at Lore Decorators for 45 years, can reinvent your furniture at half the price it would cost to buy replacements. Choose fabrics elsewhere or sift through an extensive selection of swatches. Prices are about $850 for a sofa and $400 for a chair, plus fabric.
