Original Custom Ottoman With Mohair

Design your next piece of furniture! We can replicate your favorite design or create a custom design just for you. Anything you can envision, we can bring it to life.

We will provide you with a sample so you can have a visual of the finished piece to see how it would fit into your space.  By offering a sample, prior to fabricating the finished piece, you will know exactly what to expect when your custom made  furniture is installed. Samples allow for revisions when necessary which are often made during this part of the fabrication.

Below is a perfect example of a custom designed ottoman with Mohair, decorative nail trim and chain bouillon.

Custom Chairs Built For The Hanes Group

We had the pleasure to work with Sarah Catherine Studio of Design, Retail Sports Marketing, MHS Interior Carpet Design and Studio 13 on a wonderful project at the Time Warner Cable Arena for the Hanes Group.

We build 6 custom club chairs, placing casters for easy movement on the bottom of the chairs, for to place in their box at the arena for a relaxing and comfortable area for basketball games.  Hanes will choose “lucky” individuals each game to sit in the seats.

Designing On A Budget

Looking through magazines or surfing the internet are great places to get inspiration for designing on budget. At Design Services of Charlotte we can bring a picture from a magazine to life. We have master craftsmen who can replicate furniture, or follow through on your vision by reupholstering a quality used piece of furniture. We guarantee our fabric to be free of flaws.

One fun idea is to take a professionally designed room printed in a magazine or online then hunt around town for items that closely match that design. Keep in mind that using a few quality custom pieces combined with discounted accents for the room you are decorating can keep you well within budget.

Eco Friendly DIY Chair Reupholstery

We wanted to dedicate a post to ordinary people creating extraordinary pieces from furniture most people would throw away. These people have an eye for seeing the potential in an old piece of furniture and the vision to make it into a beautiful work of art. Kudos to each and every person who is a successful DIY'er!

In our world today it is important to find creative ways to reduce waste. The term upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or higher environmental value. So not only are you having fun, you are helping to reduce waste.

We found five projects we wanted to share with our community. We hope you find them helpful and inspiring.

I love my job. I am always taken back by the stories behind special, sentimental family heirlooms. For example, a customer, stopped by this morning to take a peak at an antique, empire/sleeper sofa we are reupholstering for her mother who has Alzheimer's. Anne's mother is moving from her home of 54 years, to a condo for better proximity to Anne, her caretaker. As we were discussing changes she wanted for the sofa, she shared with me the sweetest story:
