Best Upholstery

Our upholstery showcase and our draperies showcase is a prime example of the quality, and care we put into each and every project.  Our gallery of photos below is just a fraction of the work we’ve done for our satisfied customers.  After working on classical furniture and window treatments for the past few decades we’ve come to understand the importance of cherished furniture and sophisticated design.  The timeless pieces come to our shopworn with stories and memories.  They leave us and enter a renewed life to last for generations to come.

Best Upholstery in Alexandria is the best furniture restorer in the DC/Northern Virginia area! They turned my 35 year old club chairs - family heirloom pieces - into gorgeous, more contemporary additions to our home. There's a reason BU has been in business 47 years! Quality craftsmanship, great fabrics, wonderful staff and they pick up and deliver! Interestingly, you wouldn't know it from its unassuming location and no frills shop. I dug around & found a simply beautiful fabric and their artisan furniture repairers exceeded expectations. The chairs are comfy, cozy yet elegant and they were done in 3 1/2 weeks, just before the holidays! They even created arm covers for both chairs (which you can see in the 2nd photo). Thank you, CeCe and everyone at BU.

I was crying tears of joy when Best Upholstery delivered our beautiful chair yesterday. They absolutely transformed our beloved family heirloom, an antique Voltaire-style armchair from France, from a rickety, shabby brown velvet mess to a beautiful, sculptural blend of old and new. I can't stop looking at how beautiful it is now! I recommend them whole-heartedly to anyone who is ready to invest in redoing a treasured antique.

We recently had Best Upholstery recover a sofa/chaise lounge. We chose this company after reading the Yelp reviews, which were incredibly positive. The service and work quality we received was outstanding. They had an incredible selection of fabrics that we could choose from and order. The fabric came within a day and they immediately called us to pick up the sofa. They indicated it would take around 10 days to complete. Within 5 days the sofa was done and the quality was exceptional. They literally rebuilt the sofa to new. I will definitely do business with this small business again and hope anyone reading this review will give them your work. Their price is not inexpensive but reasonable and so worth it.
