Frantic Summer

Summer has traditionally been a slow period for us, and a time to catch up on needed projects. Not this year. With the work coming in from our Cape May location, we are just keeping up with demand. It is ,of course a good problem to have. Would like to ask those looking for work to be done for Thanksgiving to be sure to get to us early this year, to guarantee delivery.

2016 is here

The Holidays have come and went, so its time to get back to work. We have an interesting Victorian couch that we should be starting soon. Ann is excited to work on this piece, as it is quite beautiful , and unique. Plan on taking a bunch of before and after pictures on that one.
It sounds so early, but customers are looking to get their spring pieces done for Valentines day, Easter, etc.

Christmas and Hanukkah are getting close

Christmas is coming, and as usual, we are increasing our hours to keep up with everyone that has just looked at their dining room chairs, and noticed that they really need to be reupholstered b4 the holidays.
We probably can commit to about 8 more sets that can be completed b4 Dec 22.
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!!

NEW NJ LOCATION

Well, after many years in business, we are pleased to announce our second location, in Wildwood NJ.
We had purchased a home there a few years ago, and have been fixing it up since then. Repairs are complete, and have opened Rennaisance Upholstery-Cape May to service customers with summer homes. We have completed a few pieces, and our NJ customers have been pleased with the results.

Time Flys

Thanks for a fantastic 2014
2014 went by so fast it was like a ride at disneyland. In addition to our most successful year yet, we have added our first franchise location, Renaissance Upholstery-State College , run by Tom Bellet. Tom will be specializing in antique, and classic furniture reupholstery, and window treatments as well as working with Penn State University  with their needs.
We have also started doing work for Cape May NJ. customers. We have a shore home in NJ, and will work out of that location on weekends.

Renaissance Upholstery in National Magazine

We recently were asked to participate in anarticle in Woodworking Magazine. Ann has been making leather cushions for a woodworker in Skippack. The style chair he manufactures is called a Morris Chair.
Anyhow, the article just came out, and the chair and cushions are on the front cover.

Woodworking magazine was so pleased they asked us to participate in another article on ottomans in the near future

Fall snuck up on us

Fall has arrived all to quickly here at Renaissance Upholstery. Usually we have a slow down in the late summer months, but certainly not this year.
Ann has been working on some beautiful victorian pieces that will be completing this week.
Next up are a few contemporary pieces that ran afoul of the family pet.
Hope all have a great Holloween.

Merion Cuntry Club Chooses Renaissance

For the 2013 USGA at Merion Cuntry Cluis year, the facility needed to upgrade their dinning room seating. We were happy to recieve the contract, and delivered 34 chairs, each of which had over 350 decoraive tacks. We were able to complete the job a week early, and all were impressed.

Back from the tropics

Ann and I just returned from an Easter vacation in Cancun Mexico. It was very relaxing, and we are now back at the shop. Glad we are so relaxed, because business is starting to back up a bit. We should be back on schedule soon. Hope all had a Happy Easter.

Specialty boat cushions are beign requested by some of our customers with beach homes, that were hit last year by Sandy. We have also done some motorcycle seats, and even an airplane seat this month. Hope you all have a great Easter.
