Here’s what our customers are saying…

Winner of the Madison Chamber of Commerce “Extra Mile Award” for 2012 for their outstanding, above-and-beyond customer service, exceptional craftsmanship, and teamwork AND winner of Madison’s “Merchant of the Month” for September 2012 for keeping the Madison business district inviting and prosperous.

“We have used Reupholstery & Restoration Plus for three furniture projects, and have been consistently impressed with their outstanding craftsmanship.   We first brought two benches to their shop. The benches were literally in pieces, after another “craftsman” had held onto them for five months, during which time he had literally destroyed them in trying to figure out how to reupholster them.  No one else we contacted was even willing to try and repair the pieces, but Johnny said he liked a challenge.  One week later, Johnny and his team had the job done perfectly!  Not only that, he was able to describe where the other craftsman’s efforts had gone awry.   Shortly thereafter, we brought in an upholstered ottoman.  It was a beautiful patchwork piece that had faded and torn over the past decade.   We wanted to recreate the patchwork with new upholstery. A couple weeks later, we picked it up and it is even nicer than it was when we first bought it. Johnny even repaired a couple spots on the legs that our dogs had chewed when they were puppies.   Most recently, we took in an antique telephone bench that was so unstable, I dared not sit on it. It now feels as safe and sturdy as it must have felt when its original owners first bought it many years ago (back when people needed telephone benches)!  They even custom made a cushion for it, using the same upholstery they used on the benches.   If you have a “furniture challenge,” bring it to Reupholstery & Restoration. They will meet or exceed your expectations.”

Re-upholstery and Restoration is one of those hidden gems. It would be hard to meet a harder-working local merchant with a warmer personality than Johnny Thomas and I would encourage folks who are enjoying a walk around town to stop in and say hello. You will surely be welcomed and impressed.”
–Kenneth Toumey, Madison Chamber of Commerce President

“Wow! Johny’s excellent craftsmanship is apparent in every inch of our furniture set and worth every penny and more. How did you get the double welting to curve like that anyway? You have really exceeded all expectations.”
–Valerie J, South Orange, NJ

“Johnny Thomas is the most amazing upholsterer and I have already recommended him to several friends. I took an upholstery class from Mr. Thomas and was regularly impressed by his knowledge and expertise. When it came time to have my couch reupholstered, I knew I would bring it to no one else. He gave me expert advice on my non-traditional choice of fabrics and not only did he deliver a stunning final product, but the couch was completed in one weeks’ time! I am very pleased with the fine results.”
–Stacy P., Morris County, NJ

“You’re the top! Thanks for making our lion roar again!”

“Friends and family thought I should just throw out my sectional, but I thought it just needed to be updated. They can’t believe that it’s the same sectional. Thanks for a job well done!”
–D.F., Newark, NJ

“My compliments for the excellent job you did on re-springing and re-webbing and generally refurbishing my 7-foot sofa. I particularly liked the way you were able to recover some of the original fabric from hidden parts of the trim strip around the bottom to repair the arm rests. I would not hesitate to recommend Re-Upholstery and Restoration to anyone who wants prompt and professional upholstery work.”
–Michael Y., Gillette, NJ

“I just wanted to thank you for restoring my favorite couch to even better than it was when I bought it brand new. I am amazed at the fine craftsmanship and expertise. It is so comfortable. I know it will last now for many more years to come. I made the right decision to have it restored by Johnny. He did a great job. Also the whole team from the person who answered the phone, the person who gave me the estimate, the people who picked up and delivered my couch were very kind, caring and professional. It was also done very quickly, within a weeks time. I am very satisfied and very impressed. Thank you so much. ”
