We had two very tired old wing chairs and were moving to a new home. I had some material I had bought a long time ago and brought it to Dominic, the company owner and craftsman. For the other chair, his assistant Beth helped us choose a coordinating fabric that we just love. The front of the shop has finished pieces and tons of fabric samples, and the workshop in back has work in progress. We felt very welcome to look at what Dominic was doing. He is a genuine Old World craftsman, working every piece by hand with great care and an obvious expertise. He is very happy to explain his techniques, what your project needs to be well finished and he really knows what he is talking about. We knew the fabric on our chairs was very tired, but he explained how the frame and the seat cushions were worn down and why they would need to be rebuilt. We felt we were in the hands of a "Maestro".
The end result is fabulous. The chairs are comfortable and provide full support. Considering the work and the time it took to do it right, we found his price very reasonable. Now we can't wait to re-upholster another chair! Bet helped us look through fabrics again and she really knows her stuff, and learns very quickly what you might like. She has an amazing eye - she found a gorgeous fabric for the next project, and we can't wait to see the results!!!
