Reupholstery is an art that gives a tired old piece of furniture a new life. When a quality chair, sofa, or any other piece of furniture is outdated or worn it can be made to have todays fabrics and styles with the structural quality of yesteryear. The master upholsterer can examine your furniture to evaluate if it is indead a candidate to be chosen to be reincarnated into a new treasure for you to enjoy for years to come. This process includes checking the frame structure, evaluating cushion and pillow condition, examing the spring system. Once this is completed the client then consults with the upholsterer or decorator as to the intended use of the furniture. The room it will be in, the lifestyle of the clients, the fabric wear-ability requirements, and of course the personal desires of the client will guide the choice of fabric for the furniture piece. When a piece of furniture is truly reupholstered it goes through many stages. The item is fully torn down, all the original fabric must be removed. The frame is repaired where needed.
The springs get rewebbed & retied (hand tied 8 ways). This provides comfort & durability for years to come. The body of the funiture piece is rewebbed & padded to better than original new condition. The item is then upholstered with high quality fabric or genuine leather with great attention to detail. The fabric pattern is matched with a flowing of the pattern, and plaids match 4 ways. The cushions and pillows are reconstructed to give a luxurious feel with great durability. This process takes a very high level of skills that only a true MASTER upholsterer can deliver.
Now that the furniture is truly reupholstered (not just recovered) it can be valued and treasure for what it is. It is a hand made piece of art that also functions as a seating area, and a purposely executed decorating item. This is one of the last true high quality items that consumers can actually obtain easily, and is affordable.
