A friend has an old tete a tete loveseat. I had never heard of this before she mentioned she had it. She wants to give it to me. My thought would be to put all new foam, cotton, etc., cover in musin, then give a price that would include the loveseat and my labor to reupholster. The customer would provide the fabric.

The only value I see is that it is unique. Unique also can be a negative. Anyone have any experience with this type of loveseat? Any issues with reupholstering? Any thoughts on my idea to sell it?

The sides slide around to the back.

Can't say I've ever seen one much less worked on one. As far as resale, it would take a unique person with a unique house to purchase one.

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

Never saw one of these Gene, but it is different. I like the movement. It makes it dual purpose. I don't think there would be any unique issues upholstering it except for the obvious backs being curved like they are but not a huge issue. Fitting takes care of that. Their must be a mechanism that would allow it to be a knock down so it should be pretty easily reupholstered. It would need to be shown in the right place to sell for a good price for you. 2500 is not bad if sold without reupholstery. Add the Reup price would bring it closer to 3.5 - 4 k. Worth it for both sides.

When I was dating my Wife my future FIL made me sit in their tete a tete -and he added if I move one inch he'll clobber me. 
Seriously - these are used at ping pong tournaments -

I second what Paul said. That's a rare piece and there are people out there who would love to have an original. Definitely worth it, in my area. Can't say for yours.

I too think they are very unique and very cool. I've always wanted to make one with the big "S"back and very Victorian. The first one I say (pictures of, sadly) was actually a three seater out of an old hotel lobby. [wink] Think pinwheel [wink]. Every body got a seat without being "sitting with someone" on a small piece of furniture.
