SF Good Questions: Recommendations for Chair Reupholsterers

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)


Do you have any good recommendations for chair reupholsters in the SF/Peninsula area? I have a beautiful high back chair whose purple velvet just isn’t a match in our new Eichler. I got inspired by Mood Fabrics and have a few choices picked out, but no good local resources to revamp my chair. Do you have any suggestions?



We don’t personally have experience with any SF or South Bay upholsterers, but can recommend one in the East Bay. Kay Chesterfield Co. in Oakland is a full service upholstery shop located by the Oakland Coliseum, and we’ve had several great experiences with them. Look for a full post on the shop in the next few weeks.

We’ve also heard good things about Riita Herwitz, who is located in Pacifica.

Of course, we always recommend looking through our archives, these things sometimes come up in comments and other good questions.

Any other suggestions for Angela?
