That doesn’t quite work, does it?
Is a statement we hear often when a client moves to this area for the first time.
Clients sometimes have a sound and functional piece of upholstered furniture which just doesn’t look right in their new or remodeled home.
Reupholstering a soundly built sofa or chair is a great way to make a piece fit in the overall scheme of your room.
Cost Savings Too
For the same chosen fabric, reupholstering a piece can save you between 10% – 25%, depending on the size and complexity of the piece.
Below, we share with you just a few of the many hundreds of pieces we have reupholstered for clients over the years.
If you have a piece of upholstered furniture that doesn’t quite look right, or is maybe a bit worn, but otherwise sound, give us a call to discuss reupholstering the piece.
This client wanted to brighten a dark corner of a room. We chose an apricot fabric with a medallion print to do so. The client was extremely pleased with the result.
Reupholstering seats and backs is a great way to freshen up a worn or dated dining room set. This was a set with cane backs, redone with a petroglyphs print. Seats are in faux leather.
It might not seem like changing fabric on a barstool seat is complicated. My husband might even be able to do one…a simple one that is.
But, tearing apart a sofa or upholstered chair, repairing or reinforcing the frame properly, replacing cushions or backing, and using the minimum amount of fabric or leather takes a skilled and experienced craftsman.
Fortunately, we have found just such a person, and we keep him very busy.
Most printed fabrics have what is called a “repeat”. This means how frequently the pattern is “repeated”. So a fabric may have a 24” repeat, which means the pattern is repeated every 24” of length.
Knowing how to cut and apply a fabric with repeat is critical to the end result. Otherwise, the pattern on a cushion may not align properly with the same pattern on the back of the chair or sofa.
This client found a chair she loved at a local antique store. The chair was in great shape, but the fabric and wood color didn’t work. A few yards of fabric and a complimentary pillow made a perfect “new” piece for her French Country decor.
Upholstery doesn’t apply only to sofas and chairs. Here we created a new upholstered headboard to compliment and coordinate with the new bedding. A new bench helps complete this makeover.
A repurposed, and reupholstered, privacy screen makes for a wonderful accent piece.
