History of Upholstery Restoration and Select Fabrics

Edward O’Brien IV established Upholstery Restoration in 1988 after learning about furniture through his parents, Edward and Beverly, who owned and operated Victoria Antiques. They began working together. A few years later, David O’Brien was brought in. From the very first day Edward IV (O’B) started serving his customers, they were always pleased with the results . No matter what it took, he made sure each customer left satisfied. Upholstery Restoration started with 2 part time upholsterers and a seamstress at night, and evolved 20 plus years later into a full-service operation with 16 employees, each one committed to the highest quality of work. To date, Upholstery Restoration and Select Fabrics is known for the simplicity, honesty, and integrity of its people.

We think of ourselves as a rather unique business. With pride, knowledge, and integrity, we strive to make sure all aspects of your experience with us is a pleasant one. Starting with an in-home estimate, feel confident our estimator will be able to provide you with information and prices on needed repairs, as well as what we recommend.
