Fun at The Stripping Workshop in Worcester MA

Fun at The Stripping Workshop in Worcester MA


One of my favorite businesses in Worcester, MA, is The Stripping Workshop.  Before your mind goes there, let me tell you that The Stripping Workshop is a furniture upholstering and refinishing shop!

Occasionally, I'll have a piece of furniture, usually chairs, that need new upholstery.  And without a second thought, I take the piece to The Stripping Workshop.  They offer yards and yards of upholstery fabric, in all different price ranges.  You select your fabric and leave your furniture at the shop.  They give you a quote and call you to pick it up when done.  So easy and so beautifully done.

Right now, they are working on a set that my husband and I inherited from his parents.  It is a mid-20th century chair and ottoman, made in Denmark and very mod in design.  I selected an art deco fabric of red and orange half-circles to replace the worn and matted original yellow fabric.  The folks at The Stripping Workshop called me recently to come in because they needed to rebuild some of the underlying framework of the chair, which had become rotted over time.  I decided that they were moving in the right direction, and they will probably finish the chair by month's end.  I'll post some photos of the set once all the work is completed.  Both the chair and ottoman are going to look fantastic.

This is awesome stuff to share - especially since I'm within driving distance and have a chair already in mind! Thanks, Kathryn! Sturbridge is a great place to make your home and sharing tid bits about the area's amenities make it more desirable for buyers who are thinking about that area.

I had a couch and chair reupholstered years ago, it was such a great investment, and it was like having brand new furniture. I'd love to see the before/after.
