Custom Upholstery

One of my absolute favorite parts of a room are the upholstery pieces. I can see a fabric and a sofa and just know instantly that they belong together in a certain space. It comes quickly and easily to me, which is probably why it is one of my favorite components. There is something about creating a custom piece of furniture or re-upholstering an old piece of furniture in a new fabric that brings me so much joy (weird, I know). Because it is so near and dear to my heart, I thought I should introduce you all to my good friend Eddie. He's my go to guy for all of my upholstery needs.

This second video is one that I took when Eddie didn't know I was taping. My sister started asking him questions and he began explaining how he feels about the upholstery process. It's pretty priceless when he starts talking about the love that goes in to a piece.

If you're in the Orange County area, I would highly recommend Pete's Upholstery (Pete is Eddie's "pops") for anything you need done in the realm of upholstery. Just be sure to tell him that I sent you so that he'll give me some sort of kick back in the form of one of his mom's tomales.

I don't have a proper photo yet of the finished custom love seat, but that's her over there on the left.


  1. We do custom sofas and chairs and...for all of our projects.
    It is such an art. Worth the time, effort and years of enjoyment.



  2. Maybe it's the control-freaks in us that just have to have custom upholstery so that we can obsess over every detail. It definitely makes a difference!

  3. Love Eddie! He's the best. I'm so excited about my rocker!

  4. Eddie is adorable. I should have been more "interview-er" like. . . instead I just said uh huh, and "cool."
