The origins of early padded upholstered furniture go back to the 17th century. The basic concept of furniture upholstery has not changed all that much since then. As in the 17th Century, there is still a lot of labor that goes into an upholstered piece of furniture. The good news is the tools and materials have changed. Staples have replaced tacks. Horsehair has been replaced by more comfortable padding like CertiPur-US foam. Cleanable, sun- resistant synthetic fabrics like Sunbrella are welcomed developments, especially here on Cape Cod where humidity is a constant concern. All these products have brought the upholstery industry into the 21st century.
My hope is the photos in this gallery will represent what I can do for your upholstered furniture and cushion projects.
