Simply the best! Mike and the team at Upholstery Restoration & Select Fabrics have been reupholstering high-end furniture for me for 20 years. Their work has always been of the highest quality. My latest projects to reupholster four dining room chairs in high-end leather and one accent chair in a Scalamandre chinoiserie fabric exceeded even my high expectations. The pictures speak for themselves. The work is simply stunning. True craftsmanship at its best! Thank you kindly Mike and team. I’m already looking forward to my next project with you!

Hi everybody,

You refinished the little half-chair; you made the gorgeous pillows and you upholstered the wing back chair and now I want to thank ALL OF YOU!

Thanks to Beverly who took the order for the chair, gave us some discounts and was otherwise adored.

Thanks to Caitlin who answered our inquiries and dispatched the delivery of the chair “repair” team.

Thanks to David M. for getting the fabric and ordering the pillows EXACTLY as I wanted them and did his best with the antique half chair.

Thanks to O.B. for matching a competitor’s price and then lowered it even more on the fabric for the wing back chair and who as the quality control person was eager to make me happy with the cording repair.

Thanks to David who came with the reliable delivery young man and proceeded to fix the cording on the spot here in the apartment.

To all of you. You have an excellent team company and be assured that if you ever need someone to give you references, I am the person!

Dear Edward,

I want to thank you for the wonderful job you have done for Mrs. Allen. She is very pleased with everything and has mentioned to me on several occasions how nice all your employees have been. She will be celebrating her 99th birthday in March and is so happy to have her furniture reupholstered for all her family to see.

Very truly yours,
Jennifer Griffin

Dear Staff at Upholstery and Restoration Unlimited,

Thank you for the exquisite job that you did in restoring my chest. It is absolutely beautiful. I have additional pieces of furniture that need refurbishing so I will be doing business with you again soon.

Please give my sincere gratitude to the persons who worked on my furniture.

To Upholstery Restoration:

Just a note to say thank you for the wonderful job you did on my two sofas and the club chair. Everything is perfect, right down to the box pleats and the full gathers. I hope for your sake that your customers are more decisive about their colors than I was, but it was worth the many trips.

Best regards,
Diana Jeffrey

PS My cat and husband like them, too!

Dave and Beverly,

Many thanks for your excellent service.

“I had a wing back chair with spring springs and two fine mahogany dining room chairs with broken arms. I chose them because of the comments already submitted. Their work is excellent. And completed on time. I can’t see where the repairs were made. I didn’t check other companies so don’t know about their prices. But other companies could not do better work.”

Dear OB, Dave, and Beverly,

In a word, we LOVE our “new” couch and we enjoyed working with you to do the estimating and select fabrics. The final product was an astonishing transformation of our old piece of !@#$#. Please see the attached picture for a view of how wonderful it looks- we have a before picture for comparison.

We also want to thank you for working with us until everything was to you satisfaction.

Sincerely yours,
Roland and Joanna

Dear OB and Staff,

Ray and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the beautiful upholstery work you and your staff did on our family room sofas. You have given us the new contemporary look we were unable to find in any furniture store. We now have a family room we are proud to show. Your excellent work and prompt service was exceptional. It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Thank you,
Ray & Ann Hutzler

Dear OB:

I just want you to know how pleased I am with my “new” table and chairs. You did a perfectly beautiful job! Danny said I could count on you to do a beautiful job, and he was right. I will continue to recommend your company every opportunity I get.

Thank you very much for the great job and the prompt pick up and delivery.

Bonnie French

That is a beautiful restoration on my settee. Worth every penny!

Mary Lynn

Dear OB,

I just wanted to write and let you know how happy we are with the restoration job you did on our kitchen table. We are so pleased with the way it came out and how nicely it matches our new kitchen chairs. Please extend our thanks to Angel who did such fine work.

We very much appreciate your help.

Very Sincerely,
Debra Halprin


Thanks very much for finishing our console table. The work looks first class. The table had details we never appreciated until you lightened the wood.

Bob Lawrence


The sofa, chairs and tables are fabulous!

Thanks for everything,
Fondly, Frances Anderson

To Whom IT May Concern:

When I was a child, I thought my parents’ carved walnut bedroom set was the most beautiful furniture I had ever seen. I recently inherited it and knew it would be difficult to find the right company to covert the double headboard/footboard to my queen-sized bed frame. All of the pieces needed some patching and touching-up. In addition, because of its sentimental value, I would need to find just the right people to do the job.

I called a couple of recommended companies and got estimates but still did not feel comfortable. I decided to drive along Howard Avenue’s “antique row” and notice the storefront of Upholstery & Restoration Unlimited, Inc. I spoke at length to Beverly O’Brien and her son, O.B., and learned that the family-owned business has built the interior of the restaurant, James III, part of The Pavilion apartments. Additionally, your work included The White House, FBI, British Embassy, and many reputable hotels and restaurants in the metropolitan area.

I was initially concerned about my estimate, but David O’Brien’s assessment the following week was right in my financial ballpark. David is an incredibly skilled artisan and treated this assignment as if it were for himself. He crafted the structure of the bed frame to fit the headboard/footboard and cleaned it beautifully.

As far as I am concerned, this is just the beginning. I have 8 more pieces, which need some degree of repair/refinishing, and I could not have found a better, more professional company than Upholstery & Restoration Unlimited, Inc. Your work is superlative and I have trust in your word. What was good enough for the White House is certainly good enough for me!

Rita Coopersmith

TO OB and Staff,

Thanks for the super job. Your attention to detail and the workmanship is superb. Our 22 year old sofa and chair look better than it ever did. We will definitely recommend your business to anyone needing upholstery work and furniture restoration.

Marilyn Reynolds

Dear Mr. O’Brien,

We just had several pieces done by your team and I want you to know how very pleased we are with the beautiful work your team does.

Your staff is most helpful and professional and the work was finished when promised and as promised. I examined all the work carefully. It is of the highest quality.

Please accept my thanks and gratitude for work well done.

Priscilla Dewey

Dear U.R. crew-
Thanks for the great work on those outdoor cushions. The client is thrilled!
Margaret Rubino

To the Two Daves-

What can I say to you? I am bowled over. It was quite wonderful timing the little blue bedroom chair was finished where I came to pick up the slipseat. Over the years, your team has done quite a bit of work for us and it has all been excellent. Where someone tells you what they want, you get it and are able to produce it. I know that when I bring something to you it will be done and done beautifully.

I wish you and your staff continued success in all that you do.

With gratitude,
Priscilla Dewey
