Upholstery is becoming a lost art in America. It’s getting harder to find people who do it well. There’s a high probability that you’ve got something at your home that could be transformed by re-upholstering it. Assuming the piece is good quality or sentimental, re-upholstering makes sense.
If pieces are in good shape structurally, they can be stripped of their old fabric and work can begin. Usually, new foam is added to give the chair or sofa the proper support. Padding wears down over the years from use, therefore, it’s crucial to add new foam to assure the piece is comfortable again. We offer a few options for the trim of the seat. We can use a standard single/double welts or add decorative nails to replace the welting.
Is your furniture in really rough shape? Don’t worry we have the ability to make the necessary structural repairs and fabricate any pieces that may missing or too broken to repair. Recently, our customer brought in the chair below. The front leg was completely broken and the design work was missing from leg. We took the chair completely apart and rebuilt the missing design. From there, the chair was re-glued back together so it was structurally sound. All the old fabric and old padding was stripped from the seat. Next, new foam was added followed by the fabric the customer selected.
When she saw the chair, she stated that she even had her doubts when she dropped it off. The greatest compliment was that she couldn’t tell which chair had been repaired when she compared it to the other matching chair we upholstered a few years back.
