Have you been looking for a quality upholsterer for a business project? Upholstery is becoming a lost art in America. It’s getting hard to find people who can do great work and also handle tight deadlines that businesses need. If you own a business, there is a high probability that your existing chairs can be brought back to life by re-upholstering. Whether it’s the chairs in your waiting room or all the dining room chairs at a country club, re-upholstery is a great option. Reason being, if your business has good furniture, often re-upholstering can be significantly cheaper than buying new and you get a custom look.
Even quality furniture can’t stand up to mother nature. When humidity levels fluctuate, wood expands and contracts and is susceptible to cracking.
Recently, a client contacted us with just this problem. They had a beautiful ten-foot long custom table made for them in Germany. The table was constructed from solid teak and was truly a remarkable piece of furniture. The couple had been transferred to Naperville recently and they noticed the table began to crack.
When you own a furniture refinishing business, you sign up to see a lot of rockers. In the years we’ve been doing this, we’ve seen rockers in every size/state imaginable.
Recently, a rocker came in that didn’t start out as a rocker. In its previous life, it was just a normal chair. At some point, stretchers were added and it was transformed into a rocker.
It can be overwhelming to buy new furniture that fits in with the pieces you already own and enjoy. At Wehrli Furniture, we specialize in transforming the dated furniture you’ve already purchased, to match your current tastes. As long as you have a vision, we can turn it into a reality.

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.
Furniture refinishing and furniture restoration are two very different things. When a customer asks to have their piece refinished, that means stripping its original finish, sanding, staining to match the customer’s color preference and spraying with lacquer to match the desired sheen. While all of those tasks are included in a restoration, they don’t make up the real challenge.
A saying I often hear is “less is more.” As it relates to furniture refinishing, some pieces are so pretty that they speak for themselves. Sometimes, restoring a piece of furniture means bringing it back to its simple intended beauty. Painting or staining it would just detract from its best characteristics.
Gambling has always had a romantic quality throughout American history. Its been portrayed in countless movies depicting the wild west, Prohibition times and various other genres. Some people make their living at it, others just enjoy sitting around a table with good friends.
Have you ever taken on project because it was the right thing to do? Maybe its that stray dog you take in or the friend you help move. I’m not sure if the recent pie safe we overhauled is a proper comparison, but its the best I can do.
