  • When to reupholster?
    We can give furniture a fresh look, take out dated details, and give an heirloom piece new life – updating the fabric, renewing fillings, replacing cushions, and restoring structural elements when needed. These processes make the cost of reupholstering close to the price of new furniture. Here’s when it’s worthwhile. When you love it. Your furniture has a history that can't be bought: the first piece of furniture you bought in your marriage or a wing chair that belonged to your grandfather. If a piece has sentimental value, it's worth recovering. When it has a good frame. If your furniture has a sturdy hardwood frame and quality construction, it's worth reupholstering. Expensive antiques may be reupholstered dozens of times. But if it was inexpensive when first purchased, it may not be worth recovering. When it can be updated to your taste. Good upholsterers can update a piece of furniture. They can create a longer skirt, remove tufting or channeling or plump and soften a piece that is too hard-edged — all according to your taste. When it will cost less than purchasing a new piece of furniture. Reupholstery isn't an inexpensive process — but it may be less costly than buying new furniture. When you are concerned about the environment. Reupholstry is a way to rescue an outdated or well-used piece of quality furniture that would otherwise be discarded.
  • How the upholstery process works?
    Contact us via quote, phone, email, or social media. Include a picture if possible, and tell us about the piece, the style, your décor and your needs. Your answers enable us to advise you on the most appropriate fabrics and options. We provide you with an initial quote. Your quote will be based on the information you provide and the options you select. When the order is finalized, we send the fabric and clear instructions on what is to be done to the workroom. The furniture arrives. We will compare the work order details to the actual piece of furniture. In some instances, our workroom can visually examine the piece and make recommendations based on that inspection. In other cases, the old covering and decking are removed, then the piece is examined and the spring work is inspected. Sometimes improvements will be suggested. We will determine if any of the following are recommended, and if there will be any additional charges for this work: Additional padding to the framework Webbing and/or support materials added or replaced Tightening and/or retying of existing spring work Touch-up to exposed wood Frame reinforcement
  • How we price upholstery?
    First, know this: we are furniture fans. We want to help you preserve your personal history, and understand every piece is an old friend. We earnestly do our best to make the process as affordable and transparent as possible. That said, reupholstering isn’t an off-the-shelf process, so pricing is variable. The size of the piece, the style, the fabric, the details, structural defects (such as the ones that are revealed only when the fabric is removed) all play a part.
  • Drapes vs Curtians
    Curtains Curtains are generally made from lightweight fabrics and are designed to add a decorative flair to windows. Unlike inside-mounted blinds and shades, curtains are installed completely outside of windows and may cover only a small part of your windows or a large portion of them. Their design often makes them a stronger focal point of rooms than blinds and shades. Many curtains are relatively short and may fall only to the bottom of the window sill, while others may be floor-length. Curtains help protect your blinds and shades. If you already have blinds or shades and add curtains to the mix, you may find that your existing window treatments will last longer and require less maintenance and cleaning—especially if you keep your curtains closed. In addition to keeping pets and their sharp claws and teeth at bay, curtains also act as dust magnets. While you’ll still need to dust them on a regular basis, curtains are easily removed—just slide them off the rod—and can be simply shaken off outside. Curtains can complement and accent your blinds and shades. If you’re looking for curtains that purely decorative due to already having blinds or shades installed on your windows, you’ll be happy to know that curtains are an excellent way to further enhance the beauty of your window treatments. Curtains can create interesting contrasts to the colors, patterns, and textures in the wood, fabric, or synthetic materials used in your blinds and shades, and they can also add an extra infusion of color to your room. VS Drapes Many people think curtains and drapes are interchangeable. However, they are two unique window covering types. Drapes are made almost exclusively with thick and heavy fabrics and typically are floor-length in size. Drapes are great at insulating and soundproofing rooms. While thin, sheer curtains will provide virtually nothing in the way of insulation and soundproofing, thick thermal drapes are great for reducing heat loss during the winter and keeping cold drafts at bay. Thick drapes also create a dampening effect for loud and bothersome noises, making them ideal for homeowners who live near train tracks, industrial facilities, or busy highways. Drapes can give a room a formal appearance. Curtains are generally considered informal and casual window coverings, while drapes are more formal in both appearance and function. Drapes are perfect for dining rooms, living rooms, and other areas where guests are frequently entertained. However, drapes don’t have to be installed only in formal rooms. When paired with high-quality blinds or shades, they’re perfect for adding a touch of elegance to any room in your home.
  • Why Roman Shades?
    Roman Shades are a timeless classic in window coverings. Rich, full-length draperies can certainly add drama and elegance to a room. But sometimes you need a clean, streamlined look at the window, especially if space is limited. Roman shades are a classic staple in décor, and are known for the soft, modern polish they bring to any room. In their basic form, Roman shades are simply fabric window coverings that can be raised or lowered with the help of a cord system and rings sewn on the back of the fabric. When raised, the fabric stacks evenly in horizontal folds.
