Before you throw out that old furniture check to see by whom it was made. The following companies made excellent upholstered furniture:


  • Barrymore
  • Beatz
  • Braemore
  • Coombes
  • Cooper Brothers
  • Farquharson-Gifford
  • Fry & Blackhall
  • Kroehler
  • Sklar
  • Sklar-Peppler
  • Snider


If in doubt about which company made your furniture, just make sure it is at least 10 years old.



Customer Comments


Although I have had the rejuvenated chair for over a year - I am still overcome with pride and pleasure when I see the chair and the fabric. Indeed, it is a rare day that, either when I leave in the morning or return at night, I don't admire and give thanks for the beauty that you created.

Moving to a smaller home, we can change your sofa into a loveseat. When downsizing, your best investment may be the furniture you are already sitting on.

Older furniture is of higher quality and can be easily converted to match your new lifestyle. We may even be able to use your existing fabric. An investment that considers the past and the future.

Of course, we also build custom seating to fit any space. Call for a free quotation at (613) 224-2150.
