Frequently Asked Questions

This decision is often based on how much you value the current piece of furniture not on saving money, as there is always a new cheap piece of furniture you can buy.  For example, is the furniture an antique or family treasure? Is it the perfect size for your space?  Is there some sentimental value?  In these instances recovery would be preferred. The question that remains is would you prefer to restore it to its former glory or transform it to a modern look? 

Yes. We have expert craftspeople skilled in all manner of timber repairs, restoration and refinishing to the most intricate pieces. Our craftsmen have expertise in;

(a) Repairing and/or replacing broken or missing pieces and filling holes and fixing imperfections.

(b) Stripping & Sanding – by hand or by machine to delicately pair back to remove existing finish and prepare for new finish

(c) Staining – if a colour change is required

(d) Polishing – applying multiple coats of Shellac

(e) Lacquering – applying multiple coats of lacquer until the right finish is obtained

It’s easy to get a proposal to restore or reupholster your furniture.  Simply complete the details on the Contact page and include some photos of the furniture.  Its best to take photos standing back so we can see the whole piece and up-close if you want to show specific details.  Photos are essential as it allows us to provide an accurate and quick price upfront. It’s also helpful to get a full description of the work required in addition to your contact details and brand of furniture. Once we receive your enquiry we will get back to you within 24 hours.  

From here the process varies depending on whether you are getting you furniture reupholstered or restored.  You can find the specific process by selecting the relevant link below.

Reupholstery process

Restoration process

This will depend upon the pieces to be re-upholstered. If you have a lounge suite to be recovered, we would normally require the suite on our premises between 2 to 3 weeks. However dining chairs would take considerably less time. All sorts of variations can occur with some fabrics coming from overseas taking 3 weeks to arrive from time of order. It also depends on whether the fabric stock is here in Australia or whether it needs to be ordered. We can advise you at the time of the quotation how long we expect to take to complete the job.

Our business hours are Monday – Friday 7.30am – 5pm and Saturday 7.30am – 3pm. While you are more than welcome to come in and view our extensive fabric range sourced from major Australian suppliers (including Warwick & Profile), it is helpful to call ahead to make an appointment to discuss your specific furniture upholstery or restoration requirements. You can find these details on the Contact page.

All deliveries can be contactless if required. Our staff are fully vaccinated, wear masks and regularly use hand sanitiser. Social distancing practices are always adhered to. The first step is to organise a time with you to pick up your item and we would call you on approach. If the item is not too heavy you can leave it for us in your front yard for collection. If it is heavy we are happy to collect it from your home and put it safely into our vehicle.

Daylom Upholstery prides itself on offering the finest quality workmanship at affordable prices and only employs the best qualified tradespeople. To support this we only invest in top-tier equipment and use the highest grades of fabrics, sourced from major Australian suppliers (including Warwick & Profile) and we offer peace of mind with 1-year warranty on our craftsmanship and 3 years on fabrics.  We have a large client base of both residential and commercial customers who will happily use us again – but don’t just believe us feel free to check out our Google reviews.

    Thanks to the team at Daylom & Vovo my Grandad’s mid-century Chiswell dining table and chairs have been given a new lease of life. Beautifully and expertly restored the team kept me up to date on the works plus we’re so patient and … More helpful as I had to make the big call on new material for my chairs, I’m so happy with outcome, thank you!

    Our second restoration. An antique Australian red cedar chair, sympathetically repaired and restored. The chair has always resided within the roll top desk just recently restored. The association continues. Thank you

    I highly recommend Daylom and Vovo Upholstery. I have recently had my 4 seater Moran leather lounge and footstool re-upholstered as after 19 years they were looking tired and the leather was wearing badly. The reupholstered pieces look … More great, the cushions plumped-up and comfortable again and the detail of the finish is perfect. The only hiccup in the process was out of their control as the fabric I had chosen for the reupholstery from Warwick was out of stock and Daylom and Vovo helped with finding a substitute.

    Daylom and Vovo re-upholstered our decade old, cracked, kid trashed, vinyl topped Oz Design dining chairs, returning them to as new condition. Couldn't be happier with the results. Making contact was simple, uploading pictures through … More their website, they called me within days with a quote. Items were picked up from and delivered to our home in a much shorter time than expected. Would highly recommend their service to anyone within the Sydney area.
