Subject: Your Fantastic renewal of my replica Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman!
Message: Been nearly a year, but I have sat in the product of your work only four times!
The chair, ottoman and your recommended wood veneer woodworking genius’s work product turned out so well, I just want to view the chair, not use it. I bought the chair and ottoman new in 1971 when I was single.
It had aged well through my care, but eventually, my thirty year old daughter’s puppy chewed the material and veneer. Moved from Illinois to Knoxville, and had to bring my “memories” with me. Knoxville’s Best magazine rated you highly, is the reason I asked for your help. And I totally agree!
You spent time and effort to send me such a numerous amount of material samples, spent an abundance of time, giving recommendations, helping me
decide on material. Your material choice
comments and your final work product,
brought a mid century classic back to
showroom life!
Your upholstery skills are viewed and admired daily!
Thank you so much!
May you work safe with your knife and scissors!

Rachel does an outstanding job re-upholstering furniture and has even helped us rebuild a few pieces that needed significant help. She pays great attention to detail and her workmanship is impeccable. We've been very pleased with the fabric selections she offers. I would highly recommend Knox Upholstery!

In love with every single project that I have had done with Knox Upholstery! I started with 6 dining room chairs, moved on to a velvet barrel chair, and then recovered 3 couches! Even though we have moved I look forward to still being a client of Rachel's - she is professional, honest, meticulous and very well priced! I recommend Rachel to all of my friends!

I Love Rachel. I have never been through the process of picking fabrics for furniture. I called Rachel about reupholstering my grandmothers mid century living room furniture. I was overwhelmed by the task and I really appreciated Rachel's patience and guidance. I refer her to everyone I meet and would use her services again. She is amazing and I love my 'new' furniture.

I can not say enough about Knoxville Upholstery! Rachel is awesome!!! Her work is impeccable and her customer service far exceeds anywhere I have ever been! She really cares about her work and loves what she does! You can see it in the rocker we had refinished by her. It was a rocker that meant a lot to our family belonging to my husband dad who passed away. We love it! Rachel was very helpful picking out a very good quality fabric and we appreciate her for everything she did! Thank you Rachel!!!!

I waited nearly a year before Rachel had time to upholster my grandmother's Duncan Phyfe couch, and two chairs. Sure, I could have found another upholsterer but Rachel has a reputation as being one of the best. And she is. I can't begin to tell you how beautiful a job she did on the furniture. I would recommend her work in a heartbeat. I would also recommend that if you have to wait a little while it's well worth doing so.

Rachel did an amazing job restoring my grandfather's stool. I love it! She was helpful in selecting a leather remnant that suited the stool perfectly. She completed this restoration in time and on budget. I highly recommend Rachel for any upholstery projects.

Rachel is very responsive and professional. Her prices are extremely reasonable, especially considering the high quality of her work. She completed my project sooner than I expected. I would definitely go to her again for upholstery needs.
