Furniture Upholstery Example Costs and Prices

While prices are specific to the variables of each reupholstery project, many projects are similar enough that they can be used as guidelines to get an idea of what your project might cost. 

With that in mind, we are posting these examples from actual projects.   Of course, we are always happy to discuss your furniture and can give you fairly accurate estimates within a few minutes.  You are also welcome to email us a few photographs of your furniture with a short summary of what you hope for it, and we'll respond with estimates, options, and suggestions.  An easy way to do that is to send us a link to photos you have on your on-line gallery (such as Picasa).

In some of the examples you will see that we have not included the cost of the fabric used.  Fabrics vary widely in price and fabric selection is specific to each person's taste and budget.  In those cases, the prices displayed are of the upholstery labor and sundry items.

Upholstery prices are affected by a few details such as:

    The degree of upholstery (completely upholstered or framed)
    Treatments such as tufts, channels, and pleats
    The quality of the existing padding and springing
    Finishes such as nails or fringes
