Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I re-upholster my furniture when I can buy new pieces?

The quality of a new piece of furniture purchased today will not be anywhere near that of an older vintage piece. Most new furniture today is made poor quality materials, like particle board instead of solid wood, elastic webbing that stretches out of shape, and nails or glue instead of screws and corner blocks. Good furniture that has been re-upholstered and well cared for will last much longer.

What is the advantage of having my furniture custom built?

The best reason to have your furniture custom built is that you get to design it yourself and no one else will have a piece like yours. If you can dream it, we can build it.

What are the advantages of having my furniture re-upholstered?

1. When we re-upholster your furniture, we inspect the structure and integrity of the frame. If there are problems, they can be repaired, adding years to the life of your furniture.

2. When we re-upholster furniture, all old covers are removed and a fresh layer of batting or cotton is added. This takes care of any odors, allergens, and dust mites that can cause health problems.

3. When we re-upholster furniture, any problems with the exposed wood, such as scratches, dings and discolouration, can be resolved if you like.

4. When we re-upholster your furniture, you select a fabric and style that reflects your personality and taste. The re-upholstered piece will be unique to you.

Do you make slip covers?

Yes. We offer slipcovers for your furniture, including hideaway bed sofas.

Why should I slip cover my furniture?

1. The number one reason is you love your furniture for how it is built but not so much the fabric. Over time fabric wears out or maybe you just want a new look for it without it being permanent.

2. The quality of a new piece of furniture purchased today will not be anywhere near that of an older vintage piece. Most new furniture today is made poor quality materials, like particle board instead of solid wood, elastic webbing that stretches out of shape, and nails or glue instead of screws and corner blocks. Good furniture that has been slip covered and well cared for will last much longer.

3. Slipcovers are easy to care for. We can pre-wash the fabric before it is ever sewn and when there is an accident you can throw it in the wash for a quick clean up.

What will my custom slipcover cost?

Each slipcover is a one-of-a-kind, designer piece, so there is no standard pricing. We can give you an estimate over the phone by the measurements you give us and through you answering a few questions about your furniture pieces.
