Save yourself time and go straight to Lee Upholstery–they are fantastic! They did a great job of breathing life into my vintage 1950’s couch and chairs…and in just one week! The vinyl was in very bad condition but there were decorative areas that I really liked, so I asked Chris Lee for a bid for repairing the tears and cigarette burns.He assured me that a repair would not hold up due to the location of the burns/tears and the brittle condition of the vinyl. Chris indicated that reupholstering would be a better long-term choice and he suggested using the decorative areas from the old vinyl as accent pieces on the newly recovered couch and chairs.One of the chairs was not a part of the set, but now it appears that way because Chris’s idea to use the old vinyl as insets on the newly recovered furniture makes it look like a set.His creativity was the key to maintaining the furniture’s unique look and feel, despite the wear and tear. His team also repaired the broken areas on the couch, reglued all other wobbly areas on the couch and chairs, reoiled all the legs and arms of each piece, and adjusted the type and amount of padding in the cushions to make it more comfortable and improve the appearance.I had not even considered doing that and it made a big difference.I still cannot believe they accomplished all of this work in just one week. I don’t know if Lee’s Upholstery is the cheapest bid, because it is hard to compare their bid with others–all other companies gave me a bid for just repairing the burns and tears. Now I know that just a repair job would have been a complete waste of money because it would not have lasted. Plus, I would not have ended up with a matching set in like-new condition.This company’s team of professionals goes above and beyond, and I really appreciate Chris’s willingness to suggest an alternate approach that would last longer.He has in-depth knowledge of furniture repair/reupholster, and his crew has real expertise and imagination. They did much more than just a reupholster and repair job, and I feel that I definitely got my money’s worth.CHRISTIE BRANDT

The entire experience was excellent.  Chris came out and provided not only an estimate but also expertise and knowledge that was very helpful in making decisions.  The timing of the services was outstanding – he was able to fit our job into the shop schedule very quickly and the turn around time was phenomenal.The pickup and delivery of the furniture was on time and efficient.  The finished product is absolutely beautiful and exceeded our expectations.  The quality and workmanship are exceptional and the customer service is unparalleled.  We highly recommend Chris and his staff!Sherry Robbs

I had an excellent experience – called the number – left a voice mail. They contacted me within the day and had an appointment to look at my chair set-up.Chris was very professional in appearance and speaking to me about the chair, length of time to redo the chair and I was able to purchase my own fabric.  Chris told me the price, he took the chair with him, I shopped for the fabric and was able to drop off at the business.We were in no hurry to get the chair back and have received back within 7 days! WOW…the chair looks great! We are very happy with the final result. The chair was way too nice to throw away and I am so glad that I found Lee’s!  SUPER JOB!Jane Williamson

I have a Wing Back Rocker that was my grandfathers and have been looking for the perfect fabric to reupholster.Once I found it I then needed to find someone that would do the work, without having to buy fabric from them, and would appreciate the quality of the piece.  I found that in Lee’s Upholstery.The chair was delivered last evening, and it is beyond my expectations.  I have 2 other chairs and will use Lee’s again.Donna Wlaschin

I picked Lee’s Upholstery based on the reviews I read on Angie’s List. And everything everyone said was absolutely true.
Chris came out and gave us an estimate on reupholstering a 3 cushion Queen Anne couch with tufting.   
I purchased the fabric online because it was much less expensive than anything I found in the fabric stores- I showed Chris the swatches I had and he said the fabric was fine and a good quality.  I ordered two extra yards so I could make throw pillows.
He said it would take a week and exactly one week from the time they took the couch away – it was returned.
And it is absolutely beautiful!I am so impressed with Chris and his staff regarding responsiveness, skills, service and reasonable price I wish I had something more for him to recover.
Unbelievable perfection. The quality is better than anything I could have found brand new.Thank you, Chris, Barb and Lee’s Upholstery.Joyce Maxwell

I was extremely pleased with the entire experience—from the first day I called til the finished products were delivered.  Chris came out a few days after my initial call to discuss my needs.  I was very impressed with his  professionalism and his knowledge.The biggest obstacle was to find a fabric to use on the chair that needed to be reupholstered.  It’s in my great room that’s decorated in Christmas reds and greens—-colors that are not currently in vogue. And I was interested only in reupholstering one chair—not change the fabric in the entire room.I was very pleased that Chris was as concerned about getting an appropriate fabric as I was.  He did not try to sell me something that wouldn’t fit in; he was happy to wait as long it took to make sure we had the right fabric.Luckily, I found a wonderful fabric in an outlet store, and Chris was perfectly happy to work with it.  To tie it into the space, I also had him recover 3 barstools in the same fabric.Chris stopped and picked the items up on a Friday and delivered them back to me a week later.  The quality of workmanship is excellent.

I will definitely call them again!

Lee Upholstering reupholstered a recliner for me. Their response to my phone call was very prompt and helpful. I am very satisfied with the results!They came to my house to take away the chair, and returned wthin two weeks with the finished item. I picked out my own fabric and they did an excellent job of matching the style of the upholstering to the fabric and to the chair design. I am very pleased with the way it turned out!.Mary Ellen Dower
