It all started for Curt with a dream of building his own custom cool Furniture a couple years out of high school in 2001. Wanting to educate himself with the tricks of every Upholstery/Leather worker trade he has worked in Furniture, Auto and Marine Upholstery shops as well as a horse saddle shop and aircraft restoration shop! Gathering all he has learned as well as material sources across the globe he combines all these individual talents into every job he does. "The range in projects keeps my days interesting, I love redoing a 1950's Vintage Rocking Chair as much as recovering an old Harley Seat".
The ongoing excitement and driven passion to be a part of helping turn your ideas to reality keeps Curt's skills alive...
"I learn new tricks everyday, I find new inspiration everyday".
In the meantime Curt and his right hand lady "Paula" are here working on your projects and striving for perfection...
So; if you have a vision for that worn-out wing back chair, or are looking for a creative solution to recover anything at all. We are ready for you!
We combine a love of furniture, fabrics, and design to provide you with the best possibilities for restoring, reinventing, or just recovering your favorite pieces of furniture. We pride ourselves on being able to take something you have and turn it into something that you love.
A major reason for reupholstering is purely sentimental. Your chair, sofa or love-seat is your favorite piece of furniture, or maybe you inherited the piece from your mother, grandmother or favorite aunt. Sometimes, everyone in the family loves the piece, including the dog…
It’s satisfying to restore a piece that has been in the family for years. Many people who had their furniture re-upholstered contend that they wanted to preserve their memories of the furniture; perhaps it was the first furniture acquired after their marriage or it has been handed down from generation to generation.
Perhaps you want to restore a family heirloom or just update a special piece that brings you back in mind to precious times. Reupholstering that original can be your investment in sustaining a family history you need not live without!
Updating an old collectible for your home or business for sentimental reasons, can be a challenge and a reward, as well as a wonderful conversation piece for years to come. An expert upholsterer can help you maintain the unique individuality of a piece, or turn an old look into a new exiting fashion statement.
Have you ever heard the expression “they’re just not building things as well as they used to…” New furniture, while it looks nice in the store, is not being built as well as furniture from even just a generation ago and, for the most part, will not stand the test of time. Historically, the new furniture industry has been dictated to by the consumer, particularly when it comes to price.
For many years manufacturers have been struggling to remain profitable and supply furniture that the consumer considers affordable. Profitability for the manufacturer has usually been achieved by using cheaper frame construction, cheaper fabric, cheaper foam, cheaper and less padding, etc. The latest trend has seen production move to offshore factories to further reduce costs, particularly labor costs.
Purchasing household furniture is an expensive proposition, and should be looked upon as an investment. Re-upholstery is not necessarily expensive, considering the cost of many brand name pieces plus delivery charges. When a furniture piece is re-upholstered, you should expect to receive at least 15 to 20 years of use, assuming normal wear and tear. This is normally a very good return on your investment.
