Interested in getting an estimate? Here's how the process works:
email me Photos
Typically the most convenient way to get started is to email a few photos of your project to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once I've received the photos I will most likely have a few questions such as comfort, age and condition of the piece. I will then email you an estimate based on the photos. You may also make an appointment to bring your piece to my studio in person if you prefer.
Since you never truly know what will be needed until you have stripped the piece of it's old materials I will estimate pricing based on a basic recover and a full re-upholstery. The difference between them is a recover is only replacing the old fabric and leaving the foundation (ie: springs and cushioning/foam) as is. A full re-upholstery would include replacing the springs, cushioning/foam and possibly some repairs. This is something we will discuss based on the condition and unique needs of your piece and you can choose what you would like done.
Select your fabric
Once you have accepted the quote the next step is selecting fabric. Typically my clients will make an appointment to visit my showroom at this time. I have many special order fabric books you can select from in my showroom in Shelton. I can also point you to a few of my suppliers websites if you would like to shop that way. You may provide your own fabric however I will not be able to warranty my work if not ordered through me. I have no way of knowing the quality of fabric not supplied by my trusted sources. If you order through me I will take care of any issues that may come up like flaws, back orders, shortages etc.
The Design Details
For some the process of picking a fabric is quick and others it takes a bit of time. I am happy to help you find your perfect fabric and the details that will make it uniquely yours. Special trim, nail head, adding buttons or painting/staining the frame can really update and add character. Sometimes simplicity is best. This is the fun part of custom upholstery.
Time to Schedule
Once your fabric is ordered we will schedule your project. This is the best way to insure everything is here and ready at your scheduled time. I am typically scheduled 6 to 8 weeks out and work in order projects are received. A 30% deposit is due at the time fabric is ordered (or at the time of drop off if providing your own fabric.) Payment is to be paid in full upon delivery/pick up of your piece.
I hope this was helpful. Please feel free to email with any questions you may have. I look forward to working with you and transforming your furniture into a functional and beautiful piece of art.
