Getting a quote:
Send in pictures and dimensions of your piece to get a quote on labour, padding, and wood refinishing (any major wood repairs are additional). I can then give you an estimate without the fabric. Fabric costs are based on selections
I will help you through the entire process. This is the first step in the upholstery process. I carry a large selection of custom upholstery fabrics. You can take books home to see the fabric in your space. *COM (Customer’s Own Material) Fee - $10.00 a yard and fabric must be approved.
Wood refinishing can really elevate a piece. You will be able to choose your stain colour and finishing (ex. Matte, gloss ect…)
I require a deposit for the cost of all fabric and padding material before anything is ordered. This also secures your space in my schedule. The remaining balance is due upon completion of the work. I have a small shop so pieces should be picked up promptly once the work is complete.
An estimate is good for 60 days. It is contingent on no major repairs once the piece is torn down. I will communicate with you throughout the entire process.
What do I need to get a quote/price?I will try to give you the most accurate quote I can, in order to do that, I just need some photos of your piece, measurements of the overall dimensions as well as the seat and back. Then I would love to see what your inspiration is (are you looking for patterns, solids, or any specific accents?). Depending on the prices of the fabric selection that you choose the price can vary, so providing as much information as possible will help to provide you the most accurate quote. Can you just give me a ballpark price? Unfortunately not, every piece is so unique we don’t have standard prices for anything.
Can I bring my own fabric?Customer owned material or COM must be approved to ensure the suitability of the fabric. I also charge $10/yard for COM fabric as without knowing it’s origin or content takes more time to work with. I also make no warranties of COM fabric.
How long will it take?Depending on the complexity and my current schedule most pieces take 4-6 weeks for completion.
I want something unique but don’t own a piece of furniture I would love to recover, do you sell furniture?"es! We have an inventory of quality furniture pieces that are ready to be recovered, check them out here
Do you make window treatments or cushions?At this time we don’t do any window treatments, there are many talented people who can! We can do custom cushions, just send in you information for a quote!
Does size matter?In this case it does, because we work out of a small studio (down a set of stairs) there is some limitation to the size of furniture that can be recovered. This will be discussed at the beginning of the quote process.
Can you teach me upholstery?At this time we are not offering any training course. There are some fantastic online resources through The Funky Little Chair that we highly recommend! https://thefunkylittlechair.com/
Do you offer pick up and delivery?Pick up and delivery can be arranged for an additional cost within one hour of Okotoks. We are based out of a private studio in Okotoks Alberta. Appointments are by request only as we don’t keep general opening hours.
