Parker Upholstery Shop will upholster new chairs to meet your design needs. We can also breathe new life into older chairs.

We restore antiques to look as good as new by replacing the stuffing or cushioning material, strapping and fabric.  If the wood needs work, we can take care of that to period standards as well.  We do complete restorations.

Regardless of the type of chair, we've probably worked on one like it in the past.  Chair types we've re-upholstered include dining room chairs, living room chairs, wingbacks, austere Scandinavian-style chairs, kitchen chairs, outdoor living chairs, and more.



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.
