We needed a couple of chairs reupholstered and found Alissa who specializes in mid-century pieces such as ours. The craftsmanship on the chair she completed is top notch and she was also very honest in her evaluation of the other chair’s marginal suitability for restoration. Easy to communicate with and reasonably priced, Alissa is an easy recommendation to make if you are looking for upholstery services.

“I’m very satisfied and pleased with Alissa’s work! My newly recovered Scan-modern dining chairs look wonderful. She and I selected the fabric from an online discounted source; she did a perfect job on the chairs. I highly recommend her for design and upholstery!”

Alissa reupholstered a set/8 Grange (high end) dining chairs that I bought in France which have a rather challenging back section that is narrowly inset in the wood frame. She did an absolutely amazing job! Especially considering that I chose a microfiber/velvet like fabric that had a specific nap to it and each part of the upholstery had to have the nap matching. Her attention to detail shows and her quick turn around time was great.

Alissa did a wonderful job reupholstering my dining room chairs. She was easy to work with and the job was completed quickly. I was not enthusiastic about this project as I thought it would be a hassle but Alissa made it easy and fun! Highly recommend!

Give Alissa a call! She turned the tattered and duct-taped remnants of a Danish modern chair I had kept in a garage for almost 20 years into a beautiful and oh-so-comfortable reading chair in my office. She also created replaceable, zip-off covers for a custom 12-foot long window seat cushion and was great to work with throughout, keeping in touch about costs, timelines, and fabric choices. A great experience and I’ll definitely call again if we have future upholstery or refurbish needs.

Alissa has a wonderful eye for design, style, and color. Her studio displays a wealth of options which she generously shares. Alissa’s workmanship is top-notch–highly recommended.

Even though Alissa usually works with mid-century modern furniture, I contacted her to see if she would be interested in working with my antique chairs. I was so pleased that she agreed to take on the challenge, and she did a beautiful job! She helped me find the perfect fabric and gimp, and the result was three gorgeous chairs. Her workmanship was impeccable. I recommend her highly!

We are very pleased with our newly upholstered chairs. Alissa had good ideas on streamlining the chairs and the end result gave us some nice clean lines. She is great to work with!

Two time-worn expressions apply to ARP Upholstery: Hers is a labor of love, and Alissa goes the extra mile. My dad’s Baughman chair looks better than new and some less valuable, but loved, chairs were saved, in the end.

I stumbled upon Alissa via Craigslist. She was coming up North to do some work and I serendipitously had a need to reupholster a chair I purchased at a small shop in town for $75. She provided the most exquisite fabric – modern and bold – which fit perfectly in my space. Her work is exceptional and her rates are reasonable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to my friends/family and also utilize her expertise again.

Alissa Arp found the perfect fabric for my old sofa and did a beautiful job reupholstering it. Great communication and everything was done in time and at cost estimated. Highly recommended!

– G.S.

We have nothing but good things to say about working with Alissa and about her work: a good selection of fabrics to choose from for our six dining room chairs, fun to spend time with in her pleasant studio, very profession job on the chairs—and prompt, too. We’ll return to Arp Upholstery for our next job.

– Vince and Patty Wixon

Alissa, your work is unbelievable! Our dining chairs look like new, and we love the new upholstery on the bedroom chair, with matching pillows. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!

-Vicki Purslow

Alissa Arp’s work – We had been looking for someone to cover our kitchen window cushion and our friend found Alissa. She did such a wonderful job. She was delightful, clear, efficient. Every day I am grateful to see the beautiful cushion and pillows she made beautiful for us. I highly recommend her.
