Summers done, back to work

Ann and I have been enjoying the summer, and spending time at our wildwood location.
Fall has arrived on schedule, along with an influx of work.
We are enjoying restoring a lot of antiques so far, and flling in dinning room furniture for the many Holidays right around the corner.
Still some slots available to get your pieces complete for your family holidays-Hank

Happy New Year

Wow,
Time flys, and Im getting slower.
Another great year for Renaissance Upholstery and our family.
Our youngest, Tracy was married this fall and taken a position at Barrows furniture, while continuing her work with us as our design consultant.
Hope everyone had a great new years!!

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.

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.

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.

January is brisk

January has started off with a bang. Many customers have decided to go ahead with furniture refurbishments, and the shop is full. Now we just have to get more hours in the day to get these projects completed.
Our daughter Tracy is back to school after a long winter break, so we are a little short in manpower.
