I bought an old chair. Loved the shape. The frame was very sturdy. The upholstery was horrible. Beckenstein had a barrel of fabric that was “very reasonable”. My Victorian chair is now a showcase.My Sofa is beautiful. Saved thousands! Same barrel. Fabric for both was less than $5.00 a yard.My only complaint was that labor, pick up and delivery we’re WAY to high.

Beckenstein Fabric has an encyclopedic selection of fabrics which can be daunting. When asked, they're willing to spend time with you to help narrow down which fabrics you should consider for your upholstery project and budget (which can still be a huge selection), and then identify individual fabrics for final consideration. In doing so, they identify the work- and wear-ability of the fabric so you know in advance how challenging it will be to apply a given fabric to a piece of furniture as well as how it will break-in over time. They also excelled in getting fabrics from the source on a rush basis. I was buying fabrics for a project overseas, and more than once they were able to get us what we needed on a very short turn around for trips to the project. Bottom line: fantastic selection and service!

Nice selection of fabrics, and Garry helped me keep the cost down, not pushing expensive fabrics but working within my budget. I ended up spending less than I expected!

I usually avoid rating goods and services, because I have come to see it as creating content with no reward, but when promoted by Beckenstein to rate their upholstery service, I jumped at the chance. This is because I was so delighted with the job they did. Several years ago they reupholstered a setee and two chairs that I own, and the results are of the highest quality—-and still look gorgeous. They used high quality mohair, which I bought off their sale table at deep discount. Their pick up and delivery was great, too. I would recommend them to anyone, and look forward to working with them again.

I love Beckenstein Fabric. I've been using their services for over 25 years which is a testiment to consistent, high quality work, lovely fabric choices and really good customer service. I'd add that I've priced their work against competetors in NYC and upstate...the price is really the same and sometimes less (especially compared to upstate where there are often fewer fabric choices and work quality may or may not be as good.) Most recent experience: My 16 year old niece wanted a high back chair to sit and read in in her room. We pulled an old one out of storage. It was well made but needed a LOT of TLC. We went to Beckenstein Fabric and Marne worked with my niece to pick out a fabric. She helped her find an inexpensive but lovely fabric that fit our budget. (She also made my niece promise to sit in the chair and read - My niece kept her promise Marne!!) Beckenstein then restored the interior of the chair and reupholstered it. Now a beautiful dark blue velvet high back chair sits in my niece's room! Thank you Marne and Beckenstein!!!Earlier experienceWe have a sun porch with a loveseat and a chair with ottoman probably purchased by our Grandma around 1910. I.e., it was much better quality than all the replacement furniture we looked at so we decided to invest in reupholstering the furniture rather than tossing them and purchasing new furniture that would fall apart in a few years and that we didn't really like. Marne helped me work through what fabric would work best in a sunny area and be durable. Then, when I zeroed in on a fabric collection, she helped me figure out which fabric would work best on what piece of furniture. We LOVE the results and we're coming back with more "heirloom" furniture this year. Thank you to Marne and the team!

I have been working with Beckensteins for over 20 years and they have always had great customer service with great accuracy and accountability with what I ordered. I have had my current couch reupholstered twice by them and from picking fabric samples with William, sitting down with Garry and getting a quote, to delivery and installation - everything was smooth and perfect.Highly recommend their services and staff - this is a one of kind institution, shop here.

Beckenstein reupholstered my Victorian rocking chair, and I am thrilled with the result. The chair looks beautiful, and it is even more comfortable than it was originally. The workmanship is superb in every detail; the price was right; and Garry and his staff could not have been more courteous and helpful throughout the process.

I got my upholstery projects back this week and can't stop and admiring them. Susie and the team at Beckenstein's really know what they're doing - and they do it very well. Am already thinking about what to give them next.

You have discerning taste. Perhaps you are a forward-thinking designer or a weekend warrior with an eye for color, pattern, texture, and shine. Or maybe you want to spruce up your room with a few touches that will change the look of the whole place. No matter who you are or what your tastes, upholstery pillows and padding are some of the fastest ways to put your personal spin on home or office decor. And there is no better place to have custom pillows made than Beckenstein Fabrics.

Custom Colors, Shapes and Pillow Designs

Beckenstein Fabrics has been around for more than a century because we do not make your ordinary Pottery Barn pillows. What sets us apart is your ability to customize the size, shape, color and fabric of every throw pillow we make for you. No more walking into your friend's house only to realize you have the same throw pillows. Our custom pillow covers are started only after you select the perfect fabric, size, shape, fill and accessories. And with our extensive range of in-stock and custom ordered fabrics the most discerning eye is sure to find the perfect thing.

Beyond Decorative Pillow Fabric

Beckenstein Fabrics goes beyond selling decorative pillow fabric. We offer customized design consultations for every client. Choose from one of our in-stock fabrics or leaf through thousands of fabric samples to find the exact color, texture and composition you want. Then, design the size and shape of your pillow. Need a 24 inch square throw pillow in silk? We can do that. Dying for a round pillow in embroidered brocade? We can do that as well. Finally, select your fill. Choose from poly foam, poly dacron or down for your ideal shape and firmness. Then, choose your finishes and accessories. The cost of your beautiful, one-of-a-kind pillow is determined by the pillow fabric by the yard, shape, size, fill, and finishes. Once you have made your choices, the real work begins as we custom build the pillow of your dreams. When all is said and done, you will have unique, breathtaking throw pillows sure to be a conversation piece in your home or office decor.

When Mass Produced Won't Do

Whether you are an amateur designer or a seasoned professional, you know that finding the right pillow can be a challenge. Big box stores peddle mass-produced pillows in similar color palates, "standard" sizes, and boring finishes. Millions of these pillows find their way across America where they are placed on retail store shelves and wait for bargain hunters to claim them on sale. It can be nearly impossible to find the right shape, size, color, and design of throw pillow you need to complete the look of your home, especially if your tastes are not dictated by a distant buyer. If you are considering high-quality, custom-made pillows, stop Googling "Pillow upholstery near me" and visit Beckenstein Fabrics for something that is as much a statement of your personality as it is a decoration.
