Upholster, restore or redesign - Which is best?
Many people build their rooms around the sizes of their existing upholstered furniture. That may mean a huge outlay to change many other elements in their rooms if they buy new. This makes re-covering a good option budget-wise.

Many people also have well-upholstered furniture that is well worth recovering. Of course, irreplaceable items and family heirlooms are always worth recovering. And the final price is generally less than buying a comparable new piece.

Deciding to upholster gives you freedom of choice that buying mass-produced goods cannot. Greggs Upholsterer at work. We’ll enable you to keep and maintain the integrity of the pieces you love, yet update them with a distinctive new look. Feed your senses with our lush fabrics. Get creative by adding contrast piping, different patterns on cushions, or other custom details. You can even work with us to design the exact vision you’ve dreamed of.


Greggs can provide complete restoration of your existing furniture pieces if needed. Unlike many upholstery shops, Greggs always strip old fabrics and add new padding etc. We can also check the integrity of the frame and springs that support the piece’s construction. The product that we will return to you will be better than new.


-At Greggs we enjoy helping customers to redesign their well loved old furniture to give it new life. We can change details such as altering the shape of an arm, the depth of a cushion or the height of a seat. We can update a piece’s lines or make it more ergonomic and comfortable. We use only the finest quality foam, felt, and other materials. Our competitive prices make redesign a value option for many customers. Let Greggs work redesign wizardry on your tired furniture!

David Screech, Gregg’s manager adds, “Once you have made the decision to upholster, we are happy to provide free in-home estimates if necessary.
Gregg’s can almost always provide cost estimates from a photograph. In the event we feel that we should examine the furniture in person then those arrangements can be made and the in home visit is complimentary. All upholstery services begin with your choice of fabric from our varied and eclectic selection. Once the fabric arrives and your furniture is picked up, your project can be completed in about 10-15 working days. If a customer has a specific requested completion date we will always try to accommodate that.”

Our Clients Speak

We have been working with clients around the world

“Gregg’s repaired and reupholstered an antique chair for us. The finished product exceeded our expectations for both the quality of the repair and upholstery. They are busy so don’t be in a hurry. But they delivered in the timeframe stated upfront. They also have an expansive selection of fabrics to choose from.”


“We just had a sofa, love seat and eight dining room chairs recovered at Greggs . Sales staff were helpful with material choices. The material and work is outstanding. They bent over backwards to be accommodating as we were moving. Picked up furniture before the move and returned it after we had moved in. David was pleasant and kept in touch. I would highly recommend this company and would use them again.”
