The Art In Upholstery

We live in a world that treats everything as easily disposable. Instead of embracing the history and the creativity of a piece, it can be just as easy to rehome a piece of worn furniture in the landfill. We offer you a different option, though. Instead of trashing your grandmother’s old living room set that you grew up with, why not give it a second life?

Before the times of cheap mass production, furniture was made to last. Even the highest level of craftsmanship cannot protect the fabric of furniture from the wear and tear of everyday life. When the fabric of a piece of furniture is showing its age, yet the frame is still holding strong, what is the owner to do?

That’s where we come in. In her many years of experience in world of furniture and home decor, Karen has honed her skill with upholstery. Whether you’re looking to recreate the look of a piece, or to give it an entirely new look, Karen listens to what you’re looking for, goes over the fabrics that we have that might match your vision, and gets to work. The art in reuphosltery is in the details, in which Karen is meticulous. The quality work that she supplies can exceed the first life of the furniture.

When you are left with your grandmother’s furniture, and it doesn’t fit your decor (or it’s a little worn around the edges), we come to the rescue. Not only do you save furniture with personal history and significance, you’re saving that furniture from taking up space in a landfill. It’s environmentally friendly!

We also work with our sister store, reDesign, in this process. If the wooden parts that show are in need of a facelift, Alex at reDesign can break out her collection of Chalk Paint© by Annie Sloan and bring color and paint technique into the equation. What might have been a boring chair is now something new and exciting!

We are so proud of the work that we’ve done, we’ve included photos. Check out some of the work that we’ve done.
