Welcome Spring With All Things New

Each year, It’s Bout Time Upholstery celebrates the onset of spring by introducing bright hues, exotic patterns, and even a bit of brilliant blue into your day. When spring comes, each of us gets an opportunity to look around, reassess our living space (and even our life!), and make appropriate changes. In the upholstery business, that can mean reupholstering tired couches, ordering a custom focus piece, or even outfitting your boat for the summer. Whatever is on your to-do list this spring, we hope that you meet your challenges with vigor, ready to face another year with a smile.

With the birth of our long-time owner’s new grandson, Brock, everyone at It’s Bout Time has had an extra reason to smile. Come on in to visit; we have many more photos to share!

Brocade Home

It’s a hard knock life. So kick up your feet on a luxe chenille ottoman and while away the hours. Not everyone can come home to a soft brocade cushion, take a sip, and let the day go. One of our customers gave it a go with this custom made chenille brocade ottoman. Its ruched sides and inverted pleats in a muted zebra print add a hint of kick in an otherwise classic, luxurious pin-cushion piece. In this hard knock life, it’s up to you to find your brocade home. Let us help you at It’s Bout Time Upholstery.

Sold: Extra Long “Mohair” Sofa

8.5' wool velvet sofa

When you’ve been around as long as we have, you get a feel for what’s needed inside Bellevue living rooms. Are you looking for a piece of furniture to fill out that one long wall that dwarfs every peice of art you buy? How about that open space that needs a cozy, unassuming line–one that separates living areas while inviting conversation?

Look no further.

8.5' wool velvet sofa

This luxurious custom-made elongated sofa boasts an impressive eight and a half feet of length! With typical depth and height (34″ x 27.5″), it isn’t oversized or overstuffed. We like to call it “just about right!”

We took the sturdy frame, added all new supports and springs, and crafted the piece from the inside out. We chose a decadent Robert Allen wool velvet upholstery fabric in color “Cocoa” with 100,000 double rubs (in English – it’ll withstand a lot of wear). The look and feel are reminiscent of mohair, without the designer price. At $1,900, you can probably afford that big, gorgeous painting you’ve been eyeing as well.

Four “Chairs” for Spring Time!

Spring time sunlight brings with it a new awareness of dust, clutter and… faded upholstery. On the next sunny day, draw up your blinds and take a good look around your living room, entryway and dining room. Upholstered chairs and sofas in these highly visible entertaining areas are often victims of sun exposure that leaves their colors muted and uneven. If your furniture could use a little spring cleaning, take a hint from the upcoming season and visit us to browse through our cheery collection of fabrics in springtime hues.

This season, all colors bright, airy and bold are in! And at It’s Bout Time Upholstery, we’re finishing up the first of our spring redecorating projects. Here are a few examples of what spring can mean in your home. Whether its bold and modern (like the snake-patterned armless chair in teal), a delicate classic (like the breezy white floral below), a study in contrasts (like the ultra-modern zebra print on a traditional armchair body), or a flouncy, fun floral (like the blue lacquered poppy armchair), let It’s Bout Time take your home spaces from drab to dynamite this spring!

… And if your chairs are weathering too quickly, may we suggest some new custom-made window treatments!?

It’s Bout Time Featured in Magazine Cover Article

425 Magazine January/February 2011 Cover

That’s right! Check out the January/February issue of “425 Magazine,” and you’ll see our handiwork right in the cover article.

“Her Haven,” a look into the colorful Medina home of clothing designer, Nancy Cirillo, is a prime example of just how much some new upholstery can do for a home. Designer Nichole Jacobson took the expansive residence from ‘grand traditional’ to ‘glam sophisticate’ overnight with splashes of bright color, bold patterns, and luscious textures.

Nichole worked with It’s Bout Time Upholstery to turn a classic side chair into the hot pink focus piece featured on two of the article’s images. This is what Jacobson had to say about the process (p. 28): “One of the more fun transformations was lacquering a French side chair hot pink and reupholstering it in a beautifully soft, textured velvet of the same color. I then added a touch of nailhead on the armrests for some bling!”

We loved working with Nichole because she shares our enthusiasm for bling and our history of turning tried-and-true furniture pieces into unforgettable show stoppers.
