Repair or Re-Upholster your Chair

A chair is normally thought of as just something to sit on, but, much like a bridge it is quite a piece of structural engineering.

Chairs usually don’t weigh much, but they often support a couple hundred pounds that might be rocking or tilted back on two legs.
This strength is a possible because of the bracing between the legs, back, and seat. You can easily understand that one loose joint puts a much greater strain on additional joints, causing them to weaken and separate.

Prevent your chair from breaking or having to repair your chairrepaired chair

Major problems can be avoided by inspecting and repairing the minor ones as soon as they are noticed.

The chair to the right has been re-upholstered with leather and we tightened and replaced some of the joints. This is a great way to save a chair, whether it is an antique piece of furniture that has been in your family for years or just a chair that you love. We can save it and bring it back to life!
