2000 Best Upholsterer

Fabric Place

Don’t throw that sofa out: Getting it re-upholstered couldn’t be easier, thanks to Fabric Place. The array of chintz, cushions, bias piping, and floral repeats might be overwhelming—at last count there were more than 50,000 fabrics alone—but this is one store where the staff takes the time to show you around. On-call decorators will swing by your house for a consultation (free with a custom order of $299 or more), all jobs are carried out at the company’s workrooms, and prices are extremely competitive.
