We reupholster sofas, chairs, antique furniture, restaurant booths, hotel furniture, hospital chiropractic benches, slipcovers, and more. We use basic time tested classic and modern upholstery techniques. In our upholstery shop your furniture is in the good hands of professional upholsterers. Any restoration such us: stripping, webbing, tying seat springs, knots stuffing, new fabrics, stitching edges rolls, piping or hand stitching; we do all of them in our local upholstery shop.








Many reupholstery shops simply place some new padding or filling over the existing cover or old upholstery fabric and then apply the new upholstery fabric.

McGilligan’s has never taken this approach when reupholstering a customer’s furniture. When we reupholster your furniture, we strip it down to the frame and springs so we can check the condition of the frame, glue joints, the spring system and the foundation padding. Any loose wood joints are re-glued and re-doweled as necessary to restore them to original soundness. Springs are re-tied, re-stretched or replaced as necessary and any padding that is not in excellent condition is restored or replaced.

We then hand cut and sew new patterns and pieces for your furniture and apply them with time-tested methods only the most experienced furniture artisans understand.


Patterns in fabric are matched, exposed wood is touched-up or refinished as needed and cushioning materials are restored or replaced according to your (our customer’s) requirements.











When updating the look of your home might be to simply get some upholstery or slipcovers for your sofas, ottomans, headboards, or chairs. The process to do this is similar to how we deal with custom furniture upholstery. We offer free estimates to customers who live in or near Madison. We can come to your house or business to offer our professional advice or you can come in to our workshop and give us the dimensions of what you need done. After that you choose the material you want for the upholstery or the slipcover. After that has been selected we will give you a reasonable time frame of when it will be done and soon you will get a sofa or chair that will look brand new without the cost.
