It’s All in the Family

With It’s Bout Time Upholstery on your team, you get fabulous results every time. Our experts have been perfecting our art for decades so you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your cushions will come back superbly stuffed, your pillows perfectly plump, and your hardware solidly strong.

This classic living room set is an example of the bread-and-butter of our business. We like to post pictures of creative pieces and showing workmanship, but our most consistent clientele typically come in for a simple sprucing and a fabric change. The photos below show the after view of the couch and one of two chairs (with a bonus baby!).

Our customer chose a smart earthy-yet-modern print from the longstanding, traditional fabric company, Kravet. Not only can it withstand the wear and tear that family room sofas tend to get, it comes in a versatile pattern that can withstand intermittent redecorations that our client is known to do.

Come by the shop during business hours and browse our extensive selection of fabrics. We know you’ll find the right fit for your family!

Where Style Meets Function

Functional Brown Vinyl Ottoman

Though we didn’t put it in the name of our shop, custom furniture makes up a major part of It’s Bout Time Upholstery’s business. We’ve made countless custom-made pieces, some traditional and some more exotic. It’s just one of the ways we serve the unique desires of our customers. No matter your needs and style, you can always count on us to design and construct furniture with the highest quality materials and finest craftsmanship.

Take this custom-made ottoman for example. Like many Bellevue residents, this family found themselves precariously balancing soda cans and coffee cups on their old tufted ottoman as they settled down to watch television. As you might imagine, spills, near-spills, and the resulting anxiety brought them to It’s Bout Time to order a more functional alternative.

Functional Brown Vinyl Ottoman

This piece serves their purposes perfectly. We included a small table in the middle of the ottoman to house beverages and snacks safely. But just in case of accidents, Kravet vinyl fabric wicks away spills and cleans with a dry towel. Removable pillows can be recovered or replaced at a whim but attach to the body for seamless use as either ottoman or extra seating.

If you are in need of a more practical but stylish television-watching experience, come on by the shop! Because let’s face it. Often, an ottoman is not just an ottoman.

Custom Textured Ottoman: For Feet

Bellevue patrons usually want one of three things when they order a custom ottoman: 1) They want an ottoman that will never be touched, much less used for feet (or worse – feet with shoes on!), 2) they want an ottoman that will actually be used as a table, with a decorative tray for holding beverages, or 3) (and more rarely) they want an ottoman for an ottoman’s job. That is, they want something with an extremely high thread count that can withstand bare, socked and shoe’d feet, trays, coffee drips, and maybe even crayons.

This customer wanted #3. So we outfitted a custom made ottoman with her exact specifications in a Duralee Suburban Home Collection fabric that can withstand anything her family and friends can throw at it. While our expertise makes us adept at creating one-of-a-kind artistic pieces for the likes of local designer jewelry and handbag stores, our bread-and-butter is in creating high quality custom made furniture that fits your hearty lifestyle, for years and years.

It Started On a Summer Saturday….

If you’re ever tempted to reupholster your own furniture, look no further than this example. See the dilapidated love-seat bench below? This is what our customer found when he decided to reupholster his own decades-old settee for a “Saturday project” this summer. Unfortunately, he discovered a chair bottom that needed all new springs, padding and alignment. In a moment of sheer genius, he decided to bring it to us. The gorgeous ancient mahogany wood was solid, so all he needed was an experienced upholstery shop to rebuild the inner workings for a fraction of the cost of a new piece.

Gold fabric brings out the light-catching qualities in this rebuilt settee

At It’s Bout Time Upholstery, we’re a little too popular to churn out a rebuilt piece on a single Saturday, but within a couple weeks, he had an understated (and comfortable!) seat that brings out the lighter golden hues that used to hide in the wood. If you’re faced with a similar problem, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’d be happy to provide an estimate, and help you get your home back in order, one piece at a time.

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.

Not Your Everyday Nailhead Headboard

Custom made headboard and bench

It’s okay. We know that not every brown headboard will match your bedding, your armoire, your curtains and your foot bench. It’s yet another reason to skip premade bed accoutrements and let us help you select that perfect shade that will tie the room together.

This fabulous king-sized bed sat alone in the middle of a large, white-washed master suite. Our client needed a brown headboard that contrasted the luster of her side tables in a shape that brought out the square pattern in her bedding. But we did her one better. We added an additional custom-built bench to add yet another layer of texture, shape and color. Do you think we nailed it? We do.

Little Miss Muffet Sat on Her Tuffet…

The exact design of Miss Muffet’s tuffet is unknown, but our forefront designers agree that this delicate pincushion plaid constitutes a perfect perch for a quick afternoon snack!  Notice how the pleating and button detail integrate seamlessly into the pattern, while the thinly striped piping provides an understated contrast.

Fill Out Large Spaces with Luxurious Ottomans

Do you ever feel like your living room needs more visual draw in the center of the room? Many of our clients find it challenging to come up with enough furniture to fill out their larger sitting rooms, living rooms, family rooms and play areas. We have found that a couple small ottomans and a large coffee table are the answer for many larger decorating spaces. We leave the coffee table to other professionals, but stylish, luxurious ottomans like these are right up our alley!
