Keith was wonderful to work with. He explained everything to me and he was able to solve the existing problem. He is friendly and very professional. He completed the project earlier than I expected. Highly recommend his work.
Keith is, simply, the best upholsterer in the business. He is a master of his craft, an old-world artisan with an exquisite understanding of form and fabric and an innate ability to visual a finished piece. These qualities allow him to apply the fabric to the sofa or chair so the pattern matches perfectly across all planes in the most pleasing way possible for every piece. I grew up in the furniture business, so I understand, appreciate and deeply respect Keiths expertise. Keith not only reupholsters furniture; he restores each piece, as well, when require, by replacing old foam, tightening the frame, replacing damaged legs and
casters, touching up stain and varnish, and thereby insuring every
project leaves his shop in optimal condition with years more usefulness. Keith finishes every project within the time he estimated it would take to
do so, if not sooner. And his prices are very reasonable. It is for all these reasons Keith has reupholstered the following pieces for my
daughter and me: two large sofas; three love seats; four kitchen counter
chairs; a rocking chair; four fully upholstered chairs; two occasional
chairs; and a valuable antique three-piece parlour set. Keith even made two cushions for me from the fabric he removed from my counter chairs because he liked it so much! Every piece has been beautifully restored
and reupholstered. For some of these pieces, I selected fabrics from his vast array of samples, while for the rest, Keith was happy to use the
fabric I had purchased elsewhere. On top of all his professional
attributes, Keith is delightfully charming, accommodating and friendly - a pleasure to work with. I cannot recommend him highly enough. His multiple five-star ratings speak for themselves.
I contacted Upper Canada to replace the foam on a Keilhauer bench seat.
Less than satisfied with the quality of the work as it did not look like the original as requested, an as I was assured it would. Cushions were now "puffy" and some edges were uneven. Communication was poor. Emails went unanswered for several days. Estimated time to complete the work went from 3 weeks, to 1 week, to apparently the morning of the second day.
When I complained, Upper Canada offered to take at look at it and "work with me" but could not assure me that he could fix it and make it look the way it was supposed to, stating "any changes he could make would make an insignificant difference".
Less than an inspiring comment to take the time and effort to bring the bench back to him.
Would definitely not recommend this vendor
I found Upper Canada Upholstery through Homestars when looking for someone to reupholstery a recliner. Keith has a great selection of fabrics to choose from, and you can take the books home without charge!
The job did not take too long, and we are extremely pleased with the workmanship. Keith is a true professional, and also a pleasure to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending his company.
This review is to recognize the immense talent of Keith of Upper Canada Upholstery. He took an old (but beloved) chair I have from Nepal and beautifully refurbished its cushion. Rather than sitting in a closet, it is now on view for all to see!
We spoke with a number of upholstery companies and found Keith very knowledgeable, skilled and helpful. The quality of work is high and price very reasonable. It was important for us to have someone we could trust handle these pieces from 1972.
Keith is an amazing one man show at Upper Canada Upholstery! He is a master upholsterer who takes great pride in his work, he is an incredibly kind & patient gentleman and he is an absolute pleasure to deal with! We recently had him reupholster a 1970s love seat that required diamond tufting, two 1950s mid century modern living room chairs and a 1930s foot stool. All of these items were extremely sentimental to me as they were from my late parents home so you can imagine my concern when selecting an upholsterer. He kindly allowed me to spend as much time as I wanted looking through his many fabric books and very patiently discussed all my upholstery options right down to the very last detail. His turn around time was quick and everything came out amazing. Honestly I cannot say enough positive things about this very talented, special and kind man! I would highly recommend him for any and all of your upholstery needs, he does beautiful work at a fair price and he is an absolute joy to work with!! - Keith...thank you so very much for everything, your time and efforts were so very much appreciated!!! Take care!
Keith’s work is outstanding! He is the consummate professional who loves his job and takes great pride in his work. He will have re-upholstered 6 sofas and 8 chairs for me. Every one is perfect. He has an excellent selection of fabrics, or will use your own. He is very fast, too, and extremely reasonable. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
I found Upper Canada Upholstery on Homestars. I had 2 benches I bought from an online furniture site that had mis-aligned holes so the legs would not screw in. Being acrylic, visual appearance is key! Keith did an amazing job! He was able to quickly come up with a solution and complete the job with incredible speed, and the work is fantastic. And super affordable! I highly recommend and will bring more work to Upper Canada Upholstery.
