Our upholsterers have over 30 years experience with many different styles of furniture. Not all of the upholstery pieces we do are antiques; we also work on more modern pieces. Another part of our business is making cushions for outdoor furniture and boats. We carry a large selection of fabrics both in-stock and special order.

Early Metal Frame Chair
We have only seen two of these since 1983 when we opened our upholstery shop. These are unusual and difficult to cover using traditional wood surface techniques. The entire base frame was re-glued and some metal parts repaired. It was reupholstered in velvet with diamond tufting and French gimp.

Victorian Sofa – c. 1860
The frame of this sofa was rather delicate. We re-enforced the joints with extra glue blocks. The upholstery was done in a traditional manor. The inside back has diamond tufting. This was a very time consuming project, but is a beautiful family piece to be used and enjoyed.
