Welcome to the Photo Gallery of Joe Gramm, owner and furniture upholsterer at Cape Cod Upholstery Shop in South Dennis, MA
Thank you to my many customers who have allowed me to showcase their completed upholstery projects in my Photo Gallery.
The photos in this gallery represent only a small portion of the work I’ve completed over the many years. My hope is this photo gallery will represent to you, the quality of work I can do for your furniture upholstery or cushion projects.
I am the sole upholsterer at Cape Cod Upholstery Shop. All the furniture and cushions in the gallery are a representation of my workmanship as an upholsterer. None of the furniture or cushions are ever sub contracted out.
If you are interested in finding out what it may cost for your upholstery project, the easiest way to get started is by emailing me a photo of your furniture or cushions along with a description of what you would like to have done.. This way I have a better understanding of your project and can provide you with a more accurate estimate.
What Makes a Good Upholstery Job:
Start with an Experienced Upholsterer
Every job I do needs to pass the “Eye Test”. I look to see if the pattern is straight both horizontally and vertically. In the carpenters world it is called level and plumb. Does the pattern match. Does the fabric conform to the natural shape of the frame. Is the welting cord straight and not squiggly. Is the fabric nice and taut so it won’t wrinkle over time. These are all the things that go into the eye test. The client may not know every detail that goes into a good upholstery job, but when the client looks at their newly upholstered furniture or cushions I want their eye’s to see beautiful workmanship.
What you see is only the beginning of a good upholstery job. It starts with the furniture frame. The frame may need to be glued. The seat and or back springs may need to be repaired. The padding may need to be replaced or added to. It’s really the frame, springs and padding where a quality upholstery job begins.
My prices can be higher than other upholsterers, but there is a reason. I have decades of upholstery experience and I put exceptional attention into every detail of the project. I use the highest quality upholstery supplies and fabrics in the upholstery trade, for example, Greenhouse Fabrics, Sunbrella, JF Fabrics, United Fabrics, Albany Foam & Supply, B & M Upholstery Supply and more.
My Pledge to the Client:
I’ve been an upholsterer for many years.
My goal is to exceed your expectations. Not only in creating a product that looks great, but a product that is built to last. Starting with the frame and ending with the fabric you selected. I hope my Photo Gallery has helped you in your research to find an upholsterer that is the right fit for your furniture upholstery or cushion project. I also give no obligation free upholstery advice on my blog page “Ask an Upholsterer“.
