Epic Seating

Two weeks ago my favorite upholsterers showed me the drawings for a new booth they were about to build.  They were excited about the upcoming challenge- neither had ever done a booth quite like this before.  Today they both stood back to survey their handiwork with me, and finally a well deserved pat [...]

The seating for this restaurant has been fun for the entire shop, the upholstery department very much enjoyed the new materials in [...]

New booth project

A new customer of ours is collaborating with our designer for all of the seating in their restaurant.  We love a creative collaborative effort!  This fabric was initially chosen to be tufted for the booths.  On the prototype the pattern looked really cool tufted, changing the lines with the fabric folding, but the material had [...]

Everything is in exactly the same place, or there has been a recent remodel with entirely new fixtures, lighting has changed, etc... and the booths still might be in the [...]
