In addition to my expert reupholstering and antique restoration, I specialize in custom-built seating furniture. I have been designing and building upholstered furniture since 1981. A made-to-order sofa or chair offers you more options on upholstery fabrics, furniture size and scale, tailoring details, and special treatments that are not available with manufactured furniture. The sofas, loveseats, chairs, lounges, and stools shown on the pages of this web site were built by me from scratch or using special-order frames for upholstering.
With an emphasis on both style and comfort, my furniture incorporates quality frames, springs, padding, and cushion materials. I employ time-tested construction methods to create seating furniture that will provide decades of service.
• Hardwood frames made of maple, ash, walnut, mahogany, poplar, and alder • Double-doweled joints provide superior strength • Glued and screwed corner blocks add additional reinforcement to frames • 8-way hand-tied coil springs in the platform • No-sag springs in backs for added comfort • Standard cushions made of HR foam with Dacron wrap • Optional down cushions, and foam-and-down cushions available
• A wide variety of styles available from the Classic Designs Portfolio • One-of-a-kind designs available (for an additional design fee) • Sofas & loveseats built to the inch • Custom sectional-sofa configurations • Odd-size chairs and chaise lounges • Custom leg designs and finishes per client specifications • Many options available on skirts, fringes, trims, contrasting welts, brass nails, and custom treatments per client specifications
