Antique settee - worth re-upholstering?

I am redesigning my living room in a French farmhouse eclectic type of style, keeping the medium golden brown oak floors and painting the walls white. There will be neutral and grey accents. I have what I think is a Victorian era settee that was given to me by a friend and I was going to incorporate it into the room by having it re-upholstered to match the design. It’s a little beat up and my husband thinks it is uncomfortable and not worth getting redone. I have no emotional attachment to the piece but think it would work design-wise and hate to toss an antique. I would like advice from someone who knows about antique furniture on whether they think it’s worth redoing. Quoted price is $600, not including fabric, which I am ok with.
