Reupholster your old lounge and repolish your heirlooms! Your old furniture can live again better than before with our lounge repairs, reupholstery and timber repolishing services.

Most furniture made before around 1998 is generally much stronger and made better than what is made today and was made in Australia mostly or Europe and will have a strong frame that will last a life time.

Unfortunately the furniture you buy now, in particular the upholstered furniture is mostly made in China and has very poor frame construction inside including cheap foam and webbing and will only last 2 to 3 years and is not worth reupholstering, which is why if you have older furniture you should really keep it and get it refurbished as opposed to throwing it out and buying new items.

Custom built furniture

Another side to our services is that we make custom built arm chairs, lounge suites, sofas and bedheads to your specific design. They can come in your choice of fabric or leather. These custom built pieces have heavily strengthened full timber frames and come with a 15 year construction guarantee, so if you want genuine well-built sofas that last, talk to us about what design you would like. We also reupholster commercial furniture and custom build certain commercial upholstered items.

We guarantee that we will rebuild underneath the correct way the first time, even though you can’t see what’s there, it is essential to have your furniture rebuilt correctly so it lasts the maximum time for you to get value and your money’s worth out of it.

Get a free quote

If you require a quote for furniture restoration, there are 3 ways to get it:

If you are serious about keeping your current furniture and having it properly reupholstered or restored someone can call out to you with samples by appointment.

If you are just wanting an estimate at this stage you can email through some photos of your furniture and let us know how many pieces there are and what types of fabric you are looking for and we will come back to you via email with a ball park estimate.

We won’t get involved in rough estimates over the phone without seeing an image first, as it’s too much guess work and will probably be way out from the actual real price!

You can visit our workshop with a photo of the furniture, look at our samples and then we can give you a firm quote that way.

If you would like an approximate estimate before deciding if you want to get your furniture restored you can email us some photos to
quotes@abrhomeindustries.com.au or abrhomeindustries@hotmail.com, or click the button below:

PLEASE NOTE! We don’t give estimates over the phone without seeing an image/photo of the furniture due to the large number of designs around.
Asking for a quote without details is a bit like saying “how much is a car?”

Thank you so much for my couch.  I am really thrilled with it. Sorry I didn't have my other one done by you and not that other mob.  That may be another job for the future.
We had our 3 and 2.5 seater Australian made sofas recovered by Colin and his team as well as a silky oak piano stool renovated and reupholstered. We couldn't be happier with the result. Separate to the obvious quality of workmanship, what really stood out was the service. Colin was also responsive in terms of communication and was patient - with the majority of our correspondence over email and several months ...

On behalf of ISPT I’d like to thank Colin and the team at ABR Home Industries (Brisbane Upholstery) for the professional job completed restoring our furniture, dating to early in The Regent’s lifecycle. All works were completed and delivered to site within condensed timeframes. The team was instrumental in resourcing and selecting a fabric reflective of the original treatment. The final restoration and new upholstery presents amazingly and we are ...
Had three items restored. One was an old sofa with wood and metal frame. The mattress and upholstery had long since gone missing. ABR restored this to new condition with new matching mattress and upholstery. Next was an old meat safe which has been in the family for well over 100 years and was really showing its age. It has been restored to original condition back to the original timber ...
