Furniture Transformations

Our designers often take pieces of furniture and transform them from something dated and worn to current and fabulous with a great new fabric and a little help from our professional upholstery workrooms! Being able to see beyond the surface imperfections and determine if a piece is salvageable is first and foremost.  If the frame is interesting and in good shape and if there is a functional spot for the piece to go, then why not consider reupholstering?  Repurposing and up-cycling is good for our environment as well! 

We might have a piece of furniture that has a family history or has sentimental value and we just can’t part with it but, it has seen better days because of multi-generational use, children or pets.  It is amazing what can be reimagined with some fresh paint, stain and new fabric.

This unique and charming camel stool had a great frame, interesting carved detail and nail trim on the legs but, the leather was worn and it was missing some buttons. 

With a little vision, a dark, rich stain and a vibrant, southwestern fabric it is amazing how new life was given to this small but eye catching piece!

Our designers took this plain white sofa and ottoman and made them unrecognizable! First the seat cushion needed to be lengthened by six inches! 

They chose a gorgeous and luxurious velvet for the sofa and added button tufting to the seat back for an elegant and sophisticated look.  The ottoman was reupholstered in a pretty coral color to compliment the sofa. 

One of our clients moved into a new home and wanted to start fresh with their living room furniture. The old, cracked leather ottoman was about to be let go.

Since the frame was still in great shape, the designer suggested reupholstering the ottoman in a fresh, fun fabric that would be durable, and putting it upstairs in the game room.  The makeover results are remarkable and really changed the whole personality of the piece!

This piece came to us after our client returned from antique treasure hunting.  This settee had beautiful hand carved woodwork but the fabric needed to be replaced.

  Once the settee was opened up, it was evident that new batting was also in order!

A gorgeous, sophisticated fabric was chosen and this stunning piece was placed in a traditional and elegant study.


Remember, just because your furniture piece is past its prime, that doesn’t mean you have to part with it! Re-upholstery can breathe new life into a beloved piece, and is a great way to up-cycle!
