If your sofa, or chair has a good frame, it's well worth reupholstering. The essential element in the structure is
the wooden skeleton inside, and if it's solid, there's no point in buying a new one. Many times your old frame
is constructed better than the new, imported furniture that is flooding the market today. Our experts here at
Recovery Room Upholstery can tell you if you have such a frame.
At Recovery Room Upholstery you are able to choose from thousands of fabric samples to complete your decorating
project. Among our quality fabric suppliers are Robert Allen, Fabricut, B. Berger, Barrow Industries, Greenhouse Fabrics,
We carry replacement foam in various densities for your comfort. Many times it is best to replace the foam at
the time of recovering. When we make new foam cushions, they are wrapped with a dacron batting which gives
a nice plump look, and protects the foam from the air, which prolongs it's life. We also offer spring, or marshall,
units for authenticity when recovering an antique.
Depending on the time of year, our back log can range from 2 -3 weeks in the off season, to 8 - 10 weeks in the
peak season, preceeding major holidays. We generally don't pick up your furniture until we are ready to
begin working on it. Once your project is picked up by us, you should see it back in your home in a couple of weeks.
Yes, we do work with leather on occasion. We have several suppliers that carry quality leather hides, and you can
see samples of them in our showroom.
Our workroom does repairs of many kinds including re-glueing, replacing zippers in cushions, replacing broken
springs, replacing rubber webbing straps. If it needs repairing, we can probably help.
When your furniture goes through our process we clean the wood and oil it with a scratch covering furniture oil.
In the case of teak wood, we use a teak oil recommended by top scandinavian furniture suppliers.
If nessesary we can refinish the wood trim. We take care of small refinishing projects in our shop, but if there
is a substantial amount of refinishing, we send it out to a professional refinishing shop.
Many times we are able to change the way your piece looks. Some options include re-styling the cushions, using
a different treatment on the skirt, and changing the legs or casters. Depending on the frame, we may be able
to change the height of the back, or the shape of the arm. Call us with your ideas.
We don't make draperies, however we do make custom cornice boards padded and covered to compliment
your decor. Cornices can be straight along the bottom edge, or shaped to your taste.
Recovery Room Upholstery does not do upholstery cleaning, however we do have a cleaning service we
recommend. Please call Castle Cleaning Systems at 262-554-8040 for a quality cleaning job.
Recovery Room Upholstery owns it's own truck, and offers free local pick-up and delivery. If you live more
