Buying Upholstery Options and Steps for Reupholstering

Reupholstering and Custom Upholstered Chairs

Reupholstering Chairs

The process of reupholstering chairs can seem overwhelming when you do not know where to begin or feel like you have to work with a few different shops and contacts to get the job done. Whether just the seat of the chair needs to be replaced or a whole set, our designers can help with reupholstering dining chairs, parsons chairs, slipcovered chairs with the ability to customize by adding trim, nail-heads, finishes and more. Here’s the easiest approach by steps:

  • Estimate yardage and costs. Either bring a picture of your item to the showroom or schedule an onsite design consultation so the right amount of upholstery fabric is ordered with estimated costs.
  • Visit your local fabric shop – that’s us! – and explore all of your upholstery fabric options both in-stock and special order. Make your selection with the help of our onsite designers.
  • Customize with finishes, fabrics, wood and trims. This is where you can get creative and truly create custom benches, chairs, sofas, ottomans and more.
  • Add nailheads, remove them, or puff up seat cushions. There’s always a way to make an existing piece better.
  • Send to Aiden’s in-house workroom for reupholstering. The turn-around time is typically 8-12 weeks from the order date or 2 weeks from receipt in workroom.

Upholstered Dining Chairs

Dining chairs need to be functional and durable, while this is also a place where many want their selections to stand out. Found a picture on Instagram or Pinterest of upholstered dining chairs that you love? We can source anything. Simply set up a design consult to find and order exactly the right dining chairs. Create a dining space with something brand new or work with what you already have to create the perfect style and piece at right price point.

Popular Upholstered Office Chairs

Working from home occasionally or have a nook in an open floor plan for computer and office work? Maybe even homework for the kids? Many choose Parsons chairs with castors or upholstered occasional chairs work. These are typically custom ordered so you get exactly the functionality that you need. Or, just go with a comfortable upholstered chair that can also slide into any corner of your home when unused.

Custom Benches

Benches for residential and commercial come in all sizes, shapes and styles like Contemporary or Traditional, so it’s easy to see why many opt for custom benches and upholstered benches for their spaces. Here are a few examples:

  • Dining bench or cocktail ottoman, tufted or skirted
  • Ottoman cubes and storage cubes
  • Square or rectangular
  • Popular big round and box pleated benches and ottomans
  • Double them or quadruple small cubes together
  • Add castors to move around room
