Here’s what clients had to say…

“The finishing on my two chairs and stools was excellent. You came to my house to help me choose, picked up the chairs and delivered in about 3 weeks. I strongly recommend Unique Upholstery & Design.”

– Florence Roberts AB

“We have used Unique Upholstery many times over the years and have never been disappointed with the quality of workmanship. This is why we have confidence in recommending Unique to our own customers.”

– Leno Macri – Leno Macri Furniture Repair and Touch-Up

“Although I had an idea of what I wanted for a fabric – staff were helpful and knowledgeable. There was a huge selection of fabric to choose from. From the moment I walked into the shop, I knew I had come to the right place. Joe’s work came highly recommended from someone else in the upholstery business. My antique chair was finished on time and just as beautiful as I had imagined. I will definitely be a “repeat” customer and have recommended Unique Upholstery to many friends. No criticisms- just a pleasure to business with you!!”

– Margaret Galloway AB

“I am a happy repeat customer because of your friendly service, quality of fabric selection, and excellent advice and workmanship. Much better than another business I had used previously. In a word, I am confident of getting good VALUE when I use Unique Upholsteryā€¯.

1. Punctuality. When Joe agrees to take on a job, a time is agreed upon and you can feel confident that the job will start and finish in the agreed upon time frame.

2.Quality.Joe, you always do a excellent job. In the two years I have been using your service I have never had any problems with the work you have done.

3. Price. I have always felt that we have been getting full value for the service Joe provides.”

– Andrew McLeod – Boston Pizza Mayfield

“Always friendly and courteous. This is my 3rd round of re-upholstering my furniture. I’ve always been very happy with the results. Many of my friends have asked for Joe’s phone number and they have always been pleased with their results too.”

– Myrna Dushinski

“Excellent assistance to choose the right product. Good work, in a timely manner.”

– Velda Fulford

“I always use Joe for my re-upholstery needs. Bottom line – he does excellent work. The patterns match, the seams are straight, the cushions fit, essentially, the piece turns out just the way it was supposed to.

I also rely on Joe to help me create custom pieces for myself and my clients. I can show Joe a picture of an upholstered piece I saw on the Net or in a catalogue or magazine, and he’s able to turn it into reality, with a few perfect changes to make it an original. He can alter the size and shape of a piece to fit my clients’ needs too (ever notice how much furniture out there just doesn’t seem to fit your body?).

I’ve been recommending Joe for years. I’ve had a few smart clients who listened to my advice, and they’ve been very happy with the results. And whenever I need a piece for myself, I go to Joe.”

– Leslie Chevalier, Chevalier Design Inc.

“Very helpful friendly service and exceptional workmanship.”

– Jeanette Drozdiak

“I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for the high-quality upholstery work you have always done for The Old Woodworks over the years of our association. Your work has always been of the highest quality, as reflected by the comments made by our many satisfied customers. Whether a small or a large job, you have always produced a superior result, on a very timely basis, and at a reasonable cost.

Good reliable service is in very short supply these days, it seems, and finding a craftsman such as yourself, with well justified pride in your workmanship and attention to detail, is highly appreciated and rewarding.

I have no difficulty in recommending you for any upholstery project. I am sure that any customer will be entirely satisfied with the final result and find their confidence in you well placed.”

I would have no problem in using Joe’s services in the future.”
