Madison’s Oldest Furniture Repair Service

At McGilligan’s our mission since 1917 has to do the best job every time

Since 1917 McGilligan’s has been offering professional custom furniture upholstery and reupholstery services to the Madison Wisconsin and the surrounding areas.

The McGilligan family has been serving Madison since 1917. The finest craftsmanship and detail go into each and every piece of furniture and lighting that we work on. No exceptions.

From kitchen diners, stool tops, and benches to custom work, McGilligan’s has the experience to work on any and all types of furniture.

Due to some changes with regard to retirements, vacations, and other changes, McGilligan's is only taking on a select number of jobs. Feel free to submit your upholstery request to us. If we can fit-it-in/do the job we will get back to you. If we can't we will forward your request to a local upholstery shop that we recommend.
