Why Reupholster?

If your old sofa looks like it's on its last legs, don't be too quick to bundle it out of the house. Resourceful homeowners are discovering that many old pieces have a value that you can't buy today. And they are restoring them through reupholstery. The economics of reupholstery works for them too. For dollars and cents it can be a good investment; one of today's best buys.

The value is in the frame

If your old sofa or chair has a good frame, it's worth reupholstering. A frame is the essential element in the structure, and if it is solid there's no point going out and buying a new one. So, what's a good frame? One that is made of hardwood (oak or maple, for example). Hardwood has longevity. A clue is it's weight. Hardwood is heavy. That is why furniture salespeople will often lift up one end of a piece of furniture when showing it to a customer. They are demonstrating the frame's weight. Most furniture is made of hardwood; however, "bargain" furniture or off-brand name furniture can be cheaply made. If you have purchased this type of furniture in the past, you know what we are talking about. Before you decide to throw out the piece in question, let our experts evaluate it. In most cases we can restructure the main supports and create a structurally sound frame that will last for years

Fabric advantage

A significant advantage in reupholstering is fabric selection. Most new furniture dealers offer only a limited number of fabric choices. At our shop, you can choose from a practically panoramic range of colors, textures and styles. With 80 different sample books, we have over 9,000 samples to choose from! Here you can find just about any fabric, at any price, to fit any decor.

Our art

Even the best brand name furniture producers can't touch our custom quality workmanship. Most top brands are mass produced. Although structurally sound, this kind of production can not match our craftsmen's attention to detail, and most often the materials used in manufacturing of the product are of lesser quality in order to cut costs. At City Upholstery we refuse to cut corners.

We use only the highest quality supplies:

 High density foam (any firmness you desire)
 The best nylon thread and bobbin
 Top quality cotton and dacron wrap

Quality materials are only half of it.
