Design consultations are held in our Boston showroom or over the phone, at your convenience. If you are seeking a source of inspiration, our portfolio features an extensive selection of models, any of which can be altered to suit your signature style and comfort.

Your wildest dream is possible. We can begin with as little as a pencil sketch, a fabric swatch or a page torn from a magazine. Since 1889, our craftsmen have transformed the most exceptional personal visions into a perfect reality.

Gracious and knowledgeable service is what you expect and what we provide. Our professional consultants have spent years in fashion and design, and retain an innate understanding of color and space. If you have any questions – about any stage of our craftsmanship – we are here to answer them.

Your time is precious to us. From the initial design consultation to our handcrafted assembly and upholstering process, you can expect to receive smooth, seamless service founded on New England integrity. Many clients have turned to us after frustrating experiences with other custom upholsterers.

Although timeframes differ according to the complexity of the custom-made upholstery, the standard order takes 10-12 weeks to complete. Our master craftsmen have been honing their skills for decades, and it shows in their harmonious teamwork.

During these weeks, we will keep you regularly informed of our progress. Over the course of 125 years in Boston, we have acquired a reputation for impeccable craftsmanship, dependability and service.
