 Working on upholstered furniture at Cape Cod Upholstery Shop: 

  • The old fabric is removed and all repairs like gluing the frame, tying springs, replacing padding, cleaning exposed wood and many other details are done. Making sure the structural support of your upholstered furniture is in good shape, is an important step in the upholstery process. 
  • Next in the upholstery process is the fabric. The fabric is cut, sewn and upholstered to the furniture, making sure the fabric is on straight, the fabric is taut, and the patterns are matched. 
  • Furniture is delivered back to the customer. The customer is 100% satisfied because the job was done correctly from start to finish.  

 Working on cushions at Cape Cod Upholstery Shop:

  • A template is made assuring the finished cushion will be a perfect fit.
  • The cushions are cut and sewn paying special attention to pattern matching, the corners being square and he welting being straight. 
  • Cushion filling options are: the original cushion, new foam and dacron wrapped cushions, or a variety of custom options like solid down & feather cushions or envelope style cushions. Envelope style cushions have an envelope and a core. the envelope is filled with either down and feathers or premium loose polyester fill. The core is typically either a spring or foam core. 
  • Cushions are delivered back to the customer. The customer is 100% satisfied because the job was done correctly from start to finish.

Collecting Massachusetts Sales Tax on Reupholstered Furniture

Paying Massachusetts sales tax on upholstery can be confusing.  The Massachusetts Department of Revenue regulates upholstery as a Fabrication.  The total invoice amount is taxed at 6.25%.  Labor, supplies and fabric are taxable. Labor is taxable even if the customer supplies the fabric.
