20 years can create a lot of memories. When it comes to furniture, it is rare for them to last two decades. Even for a great couch, the life expectancy at most is 15 years. However, when you love the furniture you have, it feels impossible to let it go. Most people, don’t think about furniture repair or restoration as a viable option. After all, most people associated the word restoration with repairing furniture that belongs to another era. Furniture restoration can be done to modern furniture too. Why give up on a beloved couch, when you can have a couch restoration done at Foxwood?
For 20 years, Doug loved his couch. However, like all things, time was taking its toll. Its firm cushions were becoming soft and plush, causing people to sink in. The wear and tear of constant use were showing in the leather. Doug’s couch was showing its age. Maybe it was time? But Doug didn’t want to give up his couch. But Doug couldn’t spend $800 a hide to replace the leather on his couch. That’s when Doug found Foxwood Furniture Restoration.
At Foxwood, we understand exactly what Doug’s couch needed. With over 30 years of experience, Foxwood has been returning antique furniture to its prime with integrity. When it comes to leather, preserving or restoring the old leather is impossible. During the restoration process, the leather is removed is replaced with a new leather hide. For Doug, he chose to replace his old leather with faux leather. Although the wear and tear leather were gone, the couch was not back to its prime.
The cushions were still showing their age. Without firm cushions, the couch would not be properly restored. That’s why Foxwood took the time to restuff every cushion, so every aspect of the couch was revitalized. With new leather and firm cushions, the couch returned to how it was 20 years ago. When Doug saw his restored couch, he was amazed to see it look and feel good as new.
While Doug’s couch needed a leather reupholstery for its restoration, each piece of furniture is unique. At Foxwood, we are prepared to handle your furniture repair and restoration needs. Do you have a piece of furniture that needs some care? Contact us today to see what we can do for you!
Recently, we helped a local young couple restore a piece of antique furniture that has been passed through their family for generations. Kristen is a medical student at Wayne State University in Detroit and Dan is a regional sales manager from Grosse Pointe. The soon-to-be-married couple wanted to put Dan’s great-grandfather’s couch in the living room of their new home in Birmingham.
The couch is a circa 1850s empire-style sofa with beautiful soft lines. However, the dated upholstery design of the couch didn’t fit with the design of their new home. So, Kristen and Dan decided to have the couch re-upholstered by Foxwood Furniture Restorations! The couple has grandparents in Ann Arbor, MI that loved the idea of reupholstering the couch to its original glory and encouraged the repairs.
When it came to picking a new fabric, Kristen and Dan selected a high-end royal green velvet fabric. As you can see, the fabric gives the old couch a luxurious new look. There is truly nothing quite like real velvet. The couch also needed a few repairs. The experienced contractors at Foxwood Restoration repaired an unstable wooden leg and did color replacement on the wood frame of the couch. Now, the antique couch is as good as new!

Just recently, we restored a channel back upholstered chair for Samantha of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Samantha wanted to give her old chair a fresh new look while maintaining its original character and history. It was a strong and comfortable chair with a swivel. The channel back chair was sentimental to Samantha as it had been used by her three young children who loved to play and spin on the swiveling chair. All three of her children had grown up playing and having fun on the comfortable chair.
Unfortunately, the chair was starting to show its age through matted upholstery and a faded design pattern. Samantha knew she had to find a reliable company to fix the problems and save the history stored in that chair. It was only when she was moving to a country property in the area of Ypsilanti that she decided to have the chair reupholstered here at Foxwood. Not only did she want to chair to be reupholstered, but she also wanted to give the comfortable chair an updated look. Fortunately, we were able to reupholster the chair and add a new fabric that Samantha chose. The end product was a fine-quality chair with a fresh new look that Samantha could be proud of.
In addition, Samantha was so happy with her restored chair that she referred some of her friends from Saline, Michigan! They wanted to have the wood refinishing done to their full dining room table set. We were able to refinish the table, chairs, and hutch to restore the youth and beauty of the wood.

Here at Foxwood, we have been servicing the people of Brighton for years. An example of this is Dale. Dale is a resident in Brighton, Michigan and he brought in his grandmother’s antique rocking chair. The insides of the chair had become flat which caused the chair to lose its beauty and support. Also, the circa “1950” chair was ready for the burn pile. But the chair was very sentimental to Dale as he remembered hours of sitting on his grandma’s lap in that chair. He was willing to do anything to save the chair that he remembered in his memories.
Dale remembered hearing about Foxwood and decided to take a chance. He contacted us and within a few days, Dale was able to look at all of the hundreds of fabrics that Foxwood has online and selected about a dozen of his favorites that were sent to his home. After matching a few of the fabrics to his other furniture, he picked his favorite and the reupholstery of his chair was started. Foxwood finished his chair in about 30 days and Dale was able to bring it home. Now, Dale is happy sitting in and enjoying his grandmother’s reupholstered rocking chair that will last from generation to generation.
