We treat your antique furniture with the respect it deserves

Antique furniture is timelessly elegant. From family heirlooms to antique store bargains, older pieces need the care to ensure you can enjoy them for decades to come.

Signature Upholstery specializes in antique furniture reupholstery, restoration, and repairs that:

  • Return damaged or worn pieces to their former glory
  • Complement the piece’s original style and heritage
  • Use the best quality products and most talented craftspeople

Our team members are trained in traditional upholstery techniques, including deep diamond buttoning, hand-stitched edge forming using horsehair and coconut fiber, and detailed stud and braid finishing.

Our work is built to last

There’s more to antique furniture restoration and repair than basic reupholstery work. Padding, support linings, springs, and webbing break down over time, which can affect structural integrity and comfort.

Your antique furniture should outlast its new upholstery. That’s why we inspect every piece – inside and out – before recommending a course of action.
