Our Upholstery Process

Re-upholstering antique furniture is a delicate process that requires patience, precision, and a deep understanding of traditional craftsmanship. Here’s an overview of how we transform your antique pieces:

  1. Assessment and Consultation: The process begins with a thorough assessment of your furniture. We examine the frame, springs, padding, and existing upholstery to determine the extent of the work required. During this consultation, we discuss your preferences and provide fabric samples for your consideration.
  2. Frame Restoration: If the wooden frame needs repair, our skilled carpenters restore it to its original condition. This step is crucial for ensuring the structural integrity of the piece.
  3. Spring and Padding Replacement: Over time, springs and padding can wear out. We replace or repair these elements using traditional methods and materials to provide comfortable and supportive seating.
  4. Fabric Selection and Cutting: Once the structural repairs are complete, we move on to the fabric. We carefully cut the chosen fabric to fit your furniture, paying close attention to pattern alignment and grain direction for a flawless finish.
  5. Upholstery: Using time-honored techniques, we meticulously attach the new fabric to your furniture. This involves stretching and smoothing the fabric to avoid wrinkles and ensuring a tight, professional finish.
  6. Final Touches: The process is completed with the addition of details such as trim, buttons, or tufting, depending on the original design and your preferences. Every piece is inspected thoroughly to ensure it meets our high standards of quality.
