Well, I doubt you'll be able to restore that kind of damage without re-upholstering! You can start by taking cigarettes (or whatever you're smoking) outside of your home and have your guests do the same. This will ensure ALL your furniture and rugs are safe from dropped cigarettes or carelessness; and it has the added bonus that you'll likely smoke less, which will be beneficial to your health.

vacuum the ashes up, then maybe wipe it clean with a damp rag or a sponge. Then take an exacto knife (or some other type of sharp scraping object) and scrape/cut off the burned nubs. Again, wipe with your damp cloth, and in an hour when it's all dry, vacuum up the "bits".

Good luck.
