Extending the Life of Your Furniture
The University Upholstery Shop is committed to bringing quality upholstery services to the University community. Each year, our three trained upholsterers reupholster over five hundred items for various University clients. We are able to work on almost any type of project – from weight room equipment to large sofas to office task chairs. The Upholstery Shop is able to help the University reduce overall costs by repairing old and worn furniture with new materials rather than purchasing completely new pieces. For instance, a brand new guest chair averages around $500 while materials to recover the same chair might cost an average of $125. If a piece of furniture is broken or damaged, we often work with Building Maintenance or the furniture manufacturer to repair or replace the broken parts. So, if your department has furniture that is past its prime, consider using the services of our talented upholsterers to bring the piece back to life.
