Upholstery and its Types

You’re first question might be “what is upholstery?” Upholstery is an artful trade practiced by skilled specialists, like our friends in Reupholstery Detroit MI, for restoring furniture, which sometimes includes adding details like padding, coil springs, webbing, channels, top stitching, diamond tufting and more. Leather and top quality fabrics are often used for high end peices, but many upholsterers will use foam, faux leather, padding, and other synthetic material for more simple furniture.

You can generally rely on upholstery showing up in four different types: commercial, residential, auto, and marine.

In residential upholstery you find items such as:

  • Sofas
  • Couches
  • Chairs
  • Bench seating
  • Patio furniture for the outdoors
  • Cushions
  • Ottomans
  • Kitching and dining room seats

Commercial upholstery tackles more durable seating that sees a lot more traffic and use. In this type of upholstery, functionality and durability trump luxury and beauty.

Auto and marine upholstery are focused on any and all seating for boats and cars, as the name suggests. From car seats to yacht couches and everything in between.
