Sample fabric
At Pick-Up

If you give us the nod, we'll schedule a pick up with you.  By this point you will know the major costs: upholstery labor, fabric, cushions, foundation work, trimmings, etc.

We will review your upholstery project so we're all on the same page.  And check out your furniture.   Most projects take two to four weeks.

At Delivery

We will deliver it back to you.  Again, scheduling a time.  Cushions placed, pillows plumped and skirts straightened.   Then, please:  sit, lounge, flop, flounce.

We accept payment by check or cash.  Any reasonable fabric remnants are delivered as well.  And your 10 year warranty begins.

Re-Upholstery Overview

Upholstered items are often embedded in a setting with many other furnishings and accessories.  It can be difficult to replace a single piece without revising the entire setting.

Upholstered items with outmoded or worn textiles can be easily re-tasked into a new theme with alternate fabric and treatments.  Our workroom regularly upholsters antiques as well as more modern furniture - from foundation spring-work and padding through to special cushions and final treatments.

What A Furniture Upholsterer Does

Re-upholstered Modern Chair

An upholsterer covers furnishings, pillows and other interior elements with fabric.


Depending on the project, upholsterers also add or replace padding and springs, attach fringe and other decorative trims, upgrade or replace cushions, add details such as piping and tufting, refinish wood and more. Some can repair or build furniture. 


A competent upholsterer can be one of the most valuable pros on your home decor list. 


Not only can he or she give a worn piece of furniture a stylish new face, but an upholsterer also can craft unique decorative elements - making your space look polished and pulled together.

Fabric, padding, springs and framework - on upholstered furniture these basic elements combine to provide a variety of visual and tactile appeal as well as functional comfort.  A nicely textured upholstery fabric with an attractive pattern and tasteful color is merely the outer layer.  A tight deck, robust spring work, smooth padding, resilient foam, and lofty  stuffing all contribute to comfortable and durable upholstery.

10 year upholstery warranty for residences

Yes.  For example: if some stitching lets go, or a cushion we replaced goes flat or a zipper fails - call us.  We'll fix it.  It's that simple.  See the complete Upholstery Warranty.

Furniture Upholstery at the Jersey Shore

We've heard that it is difficult to find local upholsterers at the shore like Avalon, Absecon or Egg Harbor.  A few years ago we extended our service area to include much of the southern New Jersey shore area.  Since then, our delivery truck has been in shore towns such as Linwood, Somers Point, Longport and Brigantine.
