Bring us your family heirlooms to restore.  We will check the entire piece to see what needs replacing including the padding, if need be; the springs, and the cushions.  We can also undertake modifications such as replacing the legs, making up new inserts from foam to spring-and-down, or vice versa and change the way it looks by swapping out the fabric. 

For owners of costlier furniture, sectionals and suites, it can be more cost-effective to reupholster well-loved pieces than replacing with new, while still obtaining showroom looks.

Unlike some shops, we don't just cover over the old fabric when a sofa is brought in to us.  We pride ourselves on our work and we remove the fabric from the furniture we upholster, then replace the  padding as needed, before upholstering with the new fabric.



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.
