Parker Upholstery specializes in residential and commercial upholstery projects.  We also do patio cushions and decorative pillows;  custom headboards; and window cornices.  Parker Upholstery has extensive experience in working with heirlooms and antiques, performing restorations.  

We have a wide selection of fabric samples and can source fabric for clients. We do custom replacement cushion inserts, where cushions have collapsed, deteriorated or been damaged. We offer in-home repair services for damaged or torn fabric; tightening of frames, rewebbing, and missing buttons.

We work with cane furniture as well.

Please explore our menus for more detail and take a look at our gallery.  If you have any questions about a possible project we might be able to undertake for you, please contact us.  Please also take a look at work we don't do.


About Us

Earl Parker started his apprenticeship in upholstery in 1980 and started his shop in 1986. Parker Upholstery started out in New York and moved to Clayton, North Carolina in 1991 where it has been based ever since. His shop accepts work from across the state and from further afield, such as New York, Florida and Texas for refurbishing.

Parker Upholstery especially loves to work on family heirlooms and bringing older pieces back to life. Earl Parker says  that every piece we deliver is a piece we would take home ourselves, otherwise it would not be delivered back to the customer.  His experience working on older pieces of furniture  - which were constructed differently to modern pieces - allows Earl to be able to perform restorations to the way they would have looked when they were first made, using the same types of methods of construction as were used originally. 

Parker Upholstery is also able to take on corporate, school and institutional clients. Clients include DuPont's conference room; CEO office chairs; as well as doctors' examining room tables.
