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.

Thousands of satisfied customers recommend our services to their friends, neighbors, colleagues, or relatives to come to McGilligans upholstery shop. Our styles include traditional, retro, modern and classic.

Seating on our frames use an 8 way hand tied spring system for added support
