Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is it cheaper to reupholster than buy new?

Yes. And, well… No. For all full explanation read the article here.

Q: Can I supply my own fabric?

Occasionally we accept COM orders if the fabric is upholstery weight and passes our physical assessment. We do not offer warranty because we can’t verify origin or quality of the fabric. At our discretion a surcharge may apply.

Q: Do you pick up and deliver?

No. We stay close to our strengths, providing great workmanship and value. Click the Vendors page reputable for a delivery company we recommend.

Q: Do you do in-home estimates?

Our preference is to meet in the showroom. We have a large fabric sample selection that will allow you to find the exact color and texture you desire.

Q: How long does it take to do the job?

Typical turnaround time: 2-3 weeks once its in the shop.

Q: My dog ate the arm on my leather sofa… is it worthwhile to fix?
