Antique Restoration

One of our specialties, antiques are at the heart of what we do. We work on all sorts of antiques, including Empire, Victorian, Eastlake and Provincial furniture. Our expertise includes frame repair, horse hair, hand-stitches edges, tufting, channel backs, leather, coil springs, and nail head trim. 


No matter the style or age of your furniture, we've got you covered. No job is too small. Whether it's a kitchen chair, your favorite recliner, or the formal sofa in your living room, we are up to the task!

Pictured left is our signature 4-way match. Every patterned fabric is matched is this manner for a professional look.

Custom New Furniture

We make high quality custom new furniture. Select from our frame catalogs, or bring in a sketch from your own design. Have an existing chair and want to make it a pair? We can do it! Custom headboards of any size and shape can be made and upholstered for you. Add tufting or a shirred border for a unique look!

Chair Caning

Caning, rush, shaker, and danish cord seating are also done on the premises. This is the lost art of seat weaving, kept alive at Imperial.

Foam Replacement

Are your sofa cushions tired, saggy or too soft? We can replace the foam rubber with your choice of firmness. Types of foam include ultra flame retardant, latex, and memory to name a few. We now carry soy foam which is more earthy-friendly. 

Furniture Repair

Upholstery repairs are the most common, along with wood repairs like broken legs and sheared dowels. WE DON'T MEND LEATHER OR SPLITS IN FABRIC.

Drapery and Slipcover Service

Our interior designer Teresa will work with you to design the perfect window treatments. She will make sure that they reflect your style and compliment your functional needs. Call or email to make a design appointment.

Slipcovering old furniture is a great alternative to re-upholstering when the frame, springs and padding are all in good shape. If all that is needed is a fresh look, then slipcovering can save you some money. Call, click or come in to get started!
