Testimonials

Not many upholsterers would have attempted this custom restoration, but you were positive and enthusiastic and produced a very professional, unique re-upholstered sofa that we will enjoy for years. Cat approved!

Their attention to the needs of their clients and the high quality of the finished items, presented to them for rebuilding, reshaping, refinishing and reupholstery, is beyond exemplary. Each year our firm is contacted by other upholstery companies, but we remain firm in our loyalty and satisfaction to and with Recovered Treasures.
I returned from my trip yesterday afternoon and was excited to get home to my new living room. We are very happy with the furniture, both with the fabrics that we selected and the quality of your work. The room looks awesome! Thanks so much for working with us on this project. I will bring pictures with me so you can see how great it looks.

I have received a lot of compliments about my newly recovered furniture from family members. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job. It certainly has given this heirloom extended life. When I picked up the footstool a few days ago, I had forgotten to ask if there was anything left on the bolt of material I had purchased for that purpose. If there is, I would like to have arm protectors and perhaps a head protector (bits of hemmed material to put on the arms and the back) to extend the wear. I believe my grandmother had similar items on her chair when it was in her house. I know many years ago they used to crochet or sew "protectors" (called "antimacassars") to serve a similar purpose - particularly when the men used the use creams or oil on their hair as was the fashion at that time. Thank you!

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you again how thrilled I am with the chairs. As thrilled as I am, my husband Bill was even more impressed! He says a family heirloom has been restored!!!!!

Thank you both very much for the nice job you did on reupholstering our Scandinavian-style leather chair and ottoman. The work was done well within the time frame Steve originally suggested that "might" be possible. We are more than pleased with the results you both achieved. We are also very pleased with the help we received from Steve at both pick up and drop off times; very nice customer service. PS. If one of your possible future customers wants to have a look at the work you did on our chair and ottoman, we would be happy to arrange for them to see it.

"Thank you so much for the service of reupholstering the child’s rocking chair at Ronald McDonald House® Atlantic Canada. Your commitment to supporting our families is greatly appreciated. This chair holds great meaning to our families while providing comfort for the boys and girls staying at the House. Ronald McDonald House® prides itself on being a home away from home for families. It’s that peace of mind that allows them to rest and focus on their children during challenging times. We are able to provide care and support to families because of businesses like yours who generously give to the House. It is so wonderful to have members of the local community giving back to the House. Our doors are always open if anyone would like to come for a tour. We look forward to a continued relationship with Recovered Treasures in the future. Thank you so much for helping us give sick children what they need most…their families."

"Thanks very much for the upholstery work on the antique sofa and the little footstool. The sofa looks great in the photo, and Blaine’s wife, Karen, says it looks beautiful. We have another job for you when we come down. Thank you for your good and thorough work."

Maureen, To you, your husband and your son, thank you! What an absolutely glorious job you all did. I’ve not seen such fine sewing, such brilliant reconstruction/refinishing and such effortless hauling of furniture before. My hubby was absolutely gobsmacked, in a good way, which made it even better. Once the craziness of all the Old O chairs dies down, we’ve another piece or two for you to work your magic on. I’m just about to show photos to the person whose grandparents first owned the pieces. I’m positive they’ll be impressed too. Simply brilliant work on your part!

I was especially blown away by the chaise – I am glad Carolyn decided to fully invest in a new seat cushion! Thank you so much for your wonderful service – I will make sure all the designers and stagers I know in town hear about you if they haven’t already."
