Trust Your Heirlooms to Trefler’s Furniture Reupholstery and Repair

From damaged antique chairs to formal dining tables marred by dark water stains, no piece of furniture can withstand all of life’s wear and tear. The great news is that these pieces can take on new lives with our high-quality furniture refinishing or reupholstery services in Newton, Massachusetts

What Is Furniture Reupholstery?

You’ll come across two similar terms here: furniture upholstery and furniture reupholstery. The first indicates that the furniture piece – often a bench or chair – has never been covered in fabric before, or has never had padded seating before. Reupholstery, on the other hand, means removing and replacing the existing fabric covers on sofas, benches, chairs, chaises, stools and other pieces. Sometimes your furniture needs more than just reupholstery; that’s when we add related services like replacing soiled cushion stuffing, repairing damaged legs or arms, or restaining the wooden frame. We’re ready to offer whatever service your furniture needs.

Our Services

Complete Restoration

We remove water stains, scuff marks, gouges and other blemishes. We also reupholster according to necessity or your personal preference, repair damaged parts, restore veneer and inlays, fix caning and rush weaving, and repair water or flood damage.

Complete Furniture Refinishing

We remove the finish on your furniture pieces, whether it is paint, shellac, lacquer, varnish or another finishing material. We also prepare the surface for new staining and apply the material of your choice. Sealing and hand polishing smoothes the surface and protects it from damage.

Furniture Modifications

If you love your wooden furniture but find that it’s not quite as functional or aesthetically pleasing as it once was, consider bringing it in for modification service. We can modify the appearance or structure of your furniture and help give it a new purpose in your home.

Custom Furniture Color Matching

For one-of-a-kind antiques, you could spend countless hours trying to match up a furniture color. At Trefler’s, we color-match your custom furniture with ease. Each piece of furniture returns to you with seamless blending and a beautiful finish.

Furniture Stripping

By stripping furniture of paint, varnish or other materials, we reveal the natural wood underneath. Often we combine this service with refinishing, where we stain or otherwise color the wood and then seal in the new finish.

Professional Furniture Upholstery

Turn to our skilled professionals for high-quality furniture reupholstery in Newton, MA. We examine your furniture and either upholster or reupholster with the fabric of your choice. We also fix cushion padding and seat supports.

Furniture Repairs
