Side & Occasional Chair Reupholstery

Reupholstering a chair is cost effective and can save you money if the piece to be re-covered was originally well-made or the style or size is ideal. This page covers dining room and occasional chairs. A dining room chair has a seat measurement up to 21”. An occasional chair is over 21” wide. These chairs can have wood arms (no upholstery) or no arms. To help determine whether or not to reupholster, read our article upholstery basics. The final cost to reupholster will hinge mostly on the fabric selection and any special features your piece may have (channel-back, tufting, buttons, etc). We use only highly-qualified and experienced upholsterers.

Estimated Pricing

Estimated labor prices and yardage below are based on purchasing your fabric and supplies from our store. Each piece of furniture is different and this chart assumes the furniture is in good condition (springs, frame, and all paddings). If additional padding (foam, dacron) is needed, it will be added to the balance due upon completion. Add 10% or more yardage for patterned fabrics. Note: All prices subject to change without notice.
