A person who works with upholstery is called an upholsterer; an apprentice upholsterer is sometimes called an outsider or trimmer.

The chair, a beautiful work of art, is tufted with buttons and is usually accompanied by an antique leather ottoman.

The materials which are important to the quality of an upholstered product, such as a bed, sofa, chair or ottoman, may be considered in four categories: the frame on which the upholstery is to be constructed; the spring system ; the cushioning or padding ; and the final fabric or leather covering.

The trade shares many of the skills required in upholstery, in addition to being able to work with carpet.

In 18th-century London upholders frequently served as interior decorators responsible for all aspects of a room’s decor.

We offer help and support for all of our upholstery supplies and products at Gary’s.

Original style reproduction vinyl, leathers and New Old Stock materials are used on all of our seat upholstery kits, carpet sets and convertible tops.
