Every aspect of your piece can be personalized to suit your tastes. Choose from a century’s worth of finial patterns or design your own. Match the silk of a headboard to details in your décor. Specify the preferred depth of your diamond tufting or the exact tension of your hand-tied springs.

The feel of your masterpiece is just as important as the overall look. With sofas and chairs, our custom upholsterers take individual measurements of a client’s height, natural pitch and sit in order to create an experience of opulent comfort.

Your desires serve as our masters. We have been known to produce exact matches of complex fabrics, source exotic woods and adjust our beds and sofas to accommodate a variety of modern mechanisms.

Over the years, McLaughlin has become known for using the finest fabrics and most sumptuous leathers. If you have an antique in need of revitalization, our expert seamstresses can resurrect your existing piece with meticulous new upholstery.

There is no limit to the possibilities of color and material. Choose from thousands of fabric swatches and hundreds of patterns in our library, or present us with your preference. You can even specify the exact style, welt and trim of each piece.

Prefer a more luxurious look? Our custom leather furniture marries the richness of animal hides to the handmade quality of our solid hardwood frames. Select from a range of leathers in every hue, shade, texture and thickness.
