Upholstery and Cushioning

This month we’ll be talking all about upholstery. For many people, upholstery never crosses their mind. For others, the idea of re-upholstering includes a new couch slip from Ikea. And then there are those of us who absolutely love upholstery. We thought we would share our passion and our knowledge, to help you see exactly what can be done when you opt for custom furniture.

This chair desperately needs a new look! Wait until we’re done with it!
With any custom job, after you’ve picked your frame, you’ll move on to your cushioning. This is the fantastic part about custom work, your furniture is made for your comfort. If you want to be enveloped in a down cushioned chair, go right ahead.

As you get older though, you need a more firm seat. For those people getting into their senior years, just the act of sitting down and getting back up becomes a pain. Having the option to raise the hight of the seat and make it more rigid makes a world of difference.

This is exactly the thing that makes custom furniture so wonderful. You decide what the chair will be used for, and build it around that need. Whether the chair is for grandpa or for a new mom, it’s built to be as comfortable as can be for the user.

After you decide on the frame and the cushioning, the fun begins! Next week we’ll be chatting about fabrics, finishings and matching your custom furniture with your lifestyle.
