Furniture Upholstery

I went to trade school for five years while I was working for an upholstery company in Jamaica before I came to the U.S. Now, I own a store in Jamaica and I’m also the co-executive owner of Tidewater Furniture Upholstery here in Portsmouth.

I’ve been in the upholstery business for twenty years, and if I didn’t love it, I wouldn’t be in it. I love what I do and I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to open two stores.

The number one source of my clients is word-of-mouth. Some people come here based on referrals and others find us online. When someone recommends you and your work to their friends and family, that’s the best praise you can get. I love to see a smile on my customer's face when they pick-up their furniture from us.

“With God, all things are possible.”

I had my dining room chairs reupholstered about 7 1/2 years ago. They still look gorgeous. I also brought in my couch cushions to get new foam 6 years ago. They're still in great shape (even with my toddler jumping on them every chance she gets).


So incredibly happy with how my couch and recliner turned out! Best prices around and the service was done so fast! Thank you so much!

Why should I choose Tidewater Furniture Upholstery for my furniture upholstery?

Tidewater Furniture Upholstery has been upholstering and repairing furniture for over 16 years. We provide top-quality upholstering services for clients all over Virginia.

Our workmanship is legendary. We value every piece that passes through our doors because we know that these pieces are valuable to our clients.


The team at the Rivertown Interiors workspace has years of experience working in furniture upholstery. We handle every piece with extreme care and attention to detail. The results of a poor upholstery job are obvious and impossible to hide. Bad fabric matching, crooked cording, and loose fabric result in a piece that not only looks poorly done, but it ends up being uncomfortable to sit or rest on. Our craftsmen realize that aesthetics aren’t the only thing at play when we upholster and repair your furniture. We want you to enjoy looking at and actually utilizing your furniture after we are finished with it. That’s why we take care to give our full attention and energy to every piece we work on.

Whether you simply want a new look for your outdated sitting room chairs, or you have an old family heirloom sofa that needs to be brought back to life, we have the artful skills and attention to detail that it takes to bring your pieces back to life. Whatever look or feel you are going for, we can help you. It’s our goal to ensure that all projects reflect the personality of our clients. No matter if you want class, whimsy, elegance, or fun, our team of craftsmen will provide a superior product.

Is my piece worth paying for furniture upholstery?

Will my pieces lose value if I bring them in for furniture upholstery?


Not at all. Actually, the opposite. Most furniture pieces are brought in to us so that the value will be maintained. The number one reason for a refinish or for furniture upholstery is to preserve your pieces. If your furniture is on the edge of breaking or if the fabric is ripped and has holes, it’s not beautiful, and you can’t enjoy it to the fullest. When you bring your things to us here at Tidewater Furniture Upholstery, we promise to give you a final product that is beautiful, professionally done, and looks like new. Call now for a free estimate.


Can I provide my own material for my furniture upholstery?

However, we have a massive inventory of all kinds of materials for your furniture upholstery. We have luxurious fabrics of all kinds, and we also carry a sizeable inventory of leather.
