"I contacted the company through the email that was listed on Angies list. Received a response the next day. Took pictures of the old recliner and emailed to Kat and
. Went on
web site to pick a fabric from various suppliers they use. Received a 15% discount on fabric (thank you Angies list).
and son picked up the recliner from my house. Recovered the recliner and delivered it to my house. The chair is beautiful. Workmanship is great. It is obvious
takes pride in his work. I could not be happier. The price of 800+ included the fabric. Actual labor was $480. This recliner will still be in use for years to come. Thank you Kat and
. And thank you Angie's list. I am a very happy customer.

by email, very prompt, and wanted to replace the fabric on our chairs before a large graduation party. Didn't have any idea about what type of fabric, but he suggested a website and also local
's. Ended up getting fabric from
's and due to our impending party, he was able to finish the job in one day! Very reasonable, the chairs look great and I would definitely recommend him and call on him again. Also he picked up and delivered my chairs at no cost!

Sample Upholsterers Reviews

South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
showed up on time at my house. He was very professional and went straight to work. He explained why he had to replace the whole headliner. He worked quickly and quietly. He was professional and courteous.
I would recommend him and use him again in a flash.

was a pleasure to work with and his work is immaculate. We love the size of our old couch, but it was in serious need of an update. He replaced the foam (one seat cushion where there were previously three, three back cushions where there were originally six pillows) and added legs, then upholstered the entire thing in new fabric. His expertise in this field is obvious. He had detailed answers to my questions: i.e., how high the legs should be, how firm the foam should be, etc. He also reupholstered our two wingback recliners.
HIs customer service is excellent. He drove to my house to look over my furniture and give me an estimate. He drove back a few weeks later to pick it up, then brought it back when it was done. No charge. We were having our floors redone, so he was willing to take our furniture a bit early and keep it until he finished another job, freeing us from the problem of schlepping three heavy pieces of furniture around the house during the floor installation. He kept me updated by sending pictures via phone.
The furniture is 100 percent comfortable and beautiful.

is worth every penny. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat.
"I called Mr.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
on Monday, he returned my call within a couple hours, and came to my house two days later on Wednesday. Mr.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
arrived promptly as scheduled. He was polite, diligent, did the work at my home, and left the area where he worked clean. He explained that he had previously had a career as an upholsterer working for several local companies and now, retired, he does repair work in customer homes. I failed to ask for an estimate before work began. Mr.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
hand-stitched the four frayed areas. I feel like Mr.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
did a professional job and I was pleased with the outcome. Obviously, since the furniture is a decade old and I had no replacement fabric, the process involved pulling together the frayed fabric so it could not be made to look exactly like the original the new corners are rounded and the old corners squared). I do feel that Mr.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
made the best of the situation and I will no longer feel embarrassed or have to give an explanation as to why an inch of stuffing is poking out of my furniture corners when I have guests over. The repairs took Mr.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
5 hours which means the charge breaks down to $70/hour. I did not get a price estimate from any alternate upholstery company. Therefore, I don't know what this would cost elsewhere. But since the only material provided was thread and Mr.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
has no shop overhead, I did feel like a labor charge of $70/hours is pricey and therefore gave a lower rating in that category. It is possible that other companies have similar/higher labor charges and my Angie's List rating in the Price category is unjustified.
"We have an Italian18-year old full leather 2-cushion loveseat with matching sofa. The seat and arm padding has deteriorated to the point that we decided to have it renewed.
We telephoned
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
and were pleased to learn his schedule allowed him to make a same-day visit to examine the piece and give us an estimate. He arrived punctually, driving a clean late-model van displaying the shop logo.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
was friendly and professional. Unfortunately for us, we learned this is a very well-made loveseat that would require stripping the leather and extensive disassembly to do the job right. Replacing the padding would entail virtually rebuilding the piece at a cost greater than our expectation. We're not certain that we want to do that and instead, will shop for a new replacement. If we are price-shocked by the cost for a quality new replacement loveseat, we will reconsider rebuilding this piece and the companion sofa, and in all likelihood we will call on
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
to do the job.
"We were so happy to find
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
who did a wonderful job of repairing our loveseat and recliner!
She came to our home within a few days of contacting her about the job.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
was prompt, very friendly and a great worker. She restitched the cushions that had become torn away from the top part of the loveseat and now it looks as good as new.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
saw that the fabric on the recliner seat had been worn terribly thin, she suggested that we could have her sew the headrest cover over it. We thought that this was a very creative solution to our problem and certainly cheaper than getting the whole chair reupholstered! Even though the size of the headrest cover was a little short of covering the whole seat, you can hardly tell that the seat has been "patched". You can't see the stitches at all!
In addition to being a fantastic upholstery craftsperson,
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
gave us some helpful hints about upholstery care and cleaning. We will certainly take her advise and order extra fabric the next time we buy upholstered furniture. She also guarantees her work for one year and told us to call her if we had any problems with the work she had done. I would highly recommend her to anyone who need upholstery repair.
"We had a 1st class experience working with
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
. The reupholstered furniture we got back surpasses our expectations. In 3 of the pieces, we had complex fabric patterns. The way they matched the patterns were incredible. The level of detail that they put into their work was extraordinary. The furniture is BEAUTIFUL!!! The turn-around time was also very quick. They picked up and delivered the furniture, which made it very convenient.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
is very personable and professional. This was the best reupholstery experience we've had and will definitely use them in the future. With great delight, I am highly recommending them to our friends!!!
"Their people were courteous and punctual and completed my installment as expeditiously as I could of expected. They left everything neat and clean and were very professional.I couldn't be more pleased!
"I guess my job dropped in the cracks and stayed there for 3 weeks until I decided to check on progress. Nothing had been started or fabric had not been ordered. Took my money and held it for 3 weeks with no phone calls with regards to delay, etc. Job should have been completed within 2 weeks. Owner never apologized or took responsibility, etc. Made me feel as though it was my fault Poor customer service and communications
