About Us

"For more than 20 years Chicagoland residents have trusted our family-owned and operated upholstery business with projects such as furniture reupholstering, antique restoration, wood refinishing, custom built furniture and a lot more. At our studio we are precise and take pains to ensure that your upholstery work is done correctly and on time. Many other upholstery businesses don't have the experience and expertise and many more do not provide the level of customer service that we do."

~ Nelson Paiz


Nelson Paiz, owner of Nelson Upholstery Studio, apprenticed at several upholstery shops as a young man. He learned more of his upholstery trade along with wood refinishing at a large furniture upholstery manufacturing business in Chicago. He continued his education and experience with another company as a furniture pattern maker and also went to school to learn auto upholstery. When he gained enough knowledge and experience he felt confident to open his own upholstery and wood refinishing business . . . Nelson Upholstery Studio.

At Nelson Upholstery Studio we allow customers to visit our workroom at any time and see the progress on every project. You can even see our upholstery staff and seamstress at work! We want you to know who is working on your upholstery and where it is coming from so you can be confident in the quality of service you are getting. Our business has thrived since 1990 because we provide high quality, timely upholstery services.
