Depending on whether this is the first reupholster for your furniture or if it has been reupholstered many times, the end result will vary from the original look of the piece.  We do our best to mimic the original presentation and details but in some instances those details are not able to be replicated.  Should you have any specific needs for your furniture, please let us know when setting up the order.  We reserve the right to make alterations to the design as necessary to ensure a successful reupholstery job.

• Does Murphy’s Upholstery refinish antiques?

Murphy’s Upholstery does not re-finish; however, does have a list of talented individuals who can do everything from dipping the piece to hand rubbing your fine inlaid woods. After the wood is made beautiful again, we pick up the piece from the re-finisher and add the upholstery for you.
