What Houzz contributors are saying:
Get the upholsterer's take on potential fabrics. Before you buy the yardage you need, take a sample to the upholsterer to be sure it's appropriate for the project. If he or he advises against it, follow that advice — if you insist on using the fabric anyway, you might end up with a subpar job. If you're smitten with the pattern, ask if you could use it for draperies, an accent pillow or another application. Ask how necessary repairs and other imperfections will be documented. This way, you can ensure that you won't take the blame for a ding that you didn't create. Be realistic about the time frame. Quality upholstery jobs take time, and top upholsterers usually have a backlog of jobs. You probably will need to wait at least several weeks, and maybe longer, for your finished piece. Be patient, and the results will be worth it.Have a fab upholstery project to show us? Post a photo below!
