About Our Upholstery

Most of the pieces in the Design Wright Studios Collection can be tailored to your specifications.

That family-sized sofa for a media room? It can also be made to work in a tiny house. A lounge chair can be made to fit a basketball player or a gymnast. Not only can your furniture’s dimensions, depths, and leg heights be made to order, but also its coverings can be customized to stand up to children, pets, and the rays of the sun. 

We stand behind the quality of our Collection. Here’s a look on the inside:

Skilled craftsmen put finishing touches onto furniture by hand

  • Frames are made from kiln-dried hardwoods such as maple and oak. Joints are double-dowelled and corner-blocked for maximum strength.
  • Seats are engineered on an 8-way hand-tied suspension, to provide the utmost comfort and longevity.
  • Cushions are constructed with an inside core made up of tiny individual coils surrounded by ultra cell foam. This core is then surrounded by a thick layer of a down and feather blend, encased in a channeled, down-proof sewn cover.
  • The cushioning is environmentally safe, and meets or exceeds UFAC fire retardant standards (TB117-2013). In plain English this means that the cushions are not treated with toxic chemicals but are still fire-safe.
