Customization Process

McLaughlin is committed to preserving the art of custom upholstering and furnishing. Our award-winning artisans specialize in creating luxurious, custom-made upholstery and furniture built to your precise specifications. These are unique and timeless pieces that speak to the heart of New England quality.

Our old world manufacturing methods, attention to detail and use of the finest natural materials are an integral part of our reputation for perfection, and each one of your heirloom pieces is crafted by hand in our Boston workroom.

Primed with a practical knowledge of 18th century upholstery techniques and a historical archive of over 25,000 patterns, our craftsmen have become famous for creating New England works of art.

New England Craftsmanship

Select a initial design from the traditional and contemporary concepts in our portfolio, request a match from our historical archive of over 5,000 pattern models or present us with a vision on a scrap of paper.

Like a classic bespoke suit, the proportions of your creation will be custom tailored to your personal tastes in comfort, fabric and style. The smallest of details will be matched to your desires, down to the very last nailhead.

The final result is American-made furniture of luxurious comfort and outstanding beauty. Depending upon the complexity, our award-winning artisans may handle your piece over 900 different times.
