The difference, careful centering and matching can
produce as essential elements add a quality re-upholstery job is
obvious to anyone interested in fine craftsmanship. These are
the details at which we excel!
All patterns, large or small, are centered on seats and backs.
Planning and careful measurements are necessary before any
cutting is done. Inside arms are centered when working with a
large, distinct pattern, and if a chair has wings, they are then
matched either to the inside arms or inside back.
Separate pieces are cut identically, with great care taken to
ensure that each one matches its complement. Sectional pieces
must match, slip-seats, cornices, throw pillows and chairs as
well. Where couches have multiple backs, all must match.
Channels on a channel-back chair are cut and installed with
precision, in order to create a visual order pleasing to the
eye. Sometimes, an upholsterer's pride in perfection is the
catalyst for turning a piece of furniture into dramatic work of
art, using pattern and color to achieve beauty unmatched in any
modern furniture factory.
Stripes and plaids present a unique challenge. Stripes must be
cut and aligned precisely by the upholsterer, but the meticulous
attention required in working with a plaid is the best proof of
a proud craftsman. All the vertical lines must be aligned with
those sections adjacent to them.
The final steps in the process is making skirts and cushions.
Skirts are cut, sewn, and installed. In front, they match with
inside back, platform and front border of seat. On outside arms
and outside backs, the pattern must match as well.
Cushions are then made, with both faces and front borders tying
in to form a continuous flow of pattern seldom found in new
