Wood Services:

Our wood refinishing includes hand stripping the finish of your piece, fine sanding, custom stain matching for any piece of furniture done in our shop and sealing the wood. We do wood repair for wobbly frames. For wood antique restoration we restore the current finish rather than stripping and starting over. We also repair caning on chairs and Rush restoration.

Upholstery Services: We upholster anything from cornices to sofas, chairs and walls. If you are looking to have a piece upholstered call us for an estimate. We offer pickup and delivery service.

In our shop we carry a large selection of fabric samples to choose from or you can visit two different websites that we use to supply our fabric. To view fabric styles and colors online go to: www.barrowindustries.com or www.greenhousefabrics.com. We also carry in our shop a large selection of nails and trims.

At Nelson Upholstery we replace and or repair cushion stuffing on removeable cushions. Upholstered pieces require many more hours to replace failed stuffing.

We try our best to finish your upholstered piece in a timely fashion although all projects are different so the time to finish a job depends on the size of the piece.

We work on antique uphostery which uses horsehair and cotton as stuffing. Modern stuffing consists of urethane foam and fiber. With an antique piece, if possible, we try to remove the horsehair, wash and dry it and put it back in the piece or purchase new horsehair. Antique upholstered pieces are more about the filler. The fabric companies no longer make fabric like the old patterns and styles so it is unlikely to find a new matching fabric for an antique piece.

Nelson Upholstery Studio can create and build custom built furniture to suit your space, tastes or accomodations. We need pictures and dimensions for your custom job.
