Christina Lambert Upholstery's Profile
|Display Name:||Christina Lambert Upholstery|
Very well written article. I have to agree with some of the comments, demographic has an influence on the price. In the Cincinnati area and compared to this article, I can see my prices being very competitive with the ones listed, perhaps too cheap at times for the work involved. It's very important to look for things like matching patterns, zippers, direction of the nap on fabrics like velvet, just to name a few. This should be a given part of the workmanship of the upholsterer. It is a dying art, and a good job is worth the investment. All these things play into how satisfied you will be in the end and for the period of time to come till you decide to recover it again. My studio is small (attached to my home) but I've worked for large companies similar to Calico Corners... you'd be amazed how they mark up the prices of the small businesses, but they also offer additional services most upholsterers won't. My goal is to give my clients more than just the upholstery work by helping through the process as a designer, seamstress, and upholsterer. If you can find someone like that in your area, you may be able to get a discount on future work for referring them. Small businesses need your support. Thanks again for the upholstery tips!
