Furniture Upholstery

Meet The Owner, Erick Negrete

Updated: Oct 4, 2020

Can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today. You can include as little or as much detail as you’d like.

My father first introduced me to upholstery when I was 13 years old. During the summer, he would take me to an upholstery shop he was employed in. My father did not own a shop at the time, but he was an amazing upholsterer with 20 years of experience under his belt. He took pride in his work and always paid attention to detail. An upholsterer is only as good as the quality he demands. Fast forward to 2012, I graduated from high school and immediately after enrolled in college to take business classes. From here, I made it my mission to master the craft of upholstery! My father and I started the business with as little as $2,000 and no clients! It was a tough journey but slowly we created a strong online presence. With my father as my mentor, I was able to learn the art of restoring furniture of any style. He instilled high standards and work ethic onto me. As he always said, "Make it nice or do it twice." Now that the business has been passed down to me, I continue to instill top quality workmanship in everyone that works in my shop. My passion is upholstering any piece of furniture and bringing it back to life.

 

Has it been a smooth road? If
