Richard was such a pleasure to work with and I recommend him highly. He is kind, courteous, honest, prompt, professional, and extremely knowledgeable about re-upholstery. I had searched far and wide for someone with the expertise to properly restore some vintage pieces to their former glory. The people I came across were either middle-men out to make a profit, or tradesmen who used inferior products. Richard does all the re-upholstery himself and he uses quality materials. He will do whatever is necessary to make the furniture the best it can be. Each item is truly treated as a work of art by this re-upholstery artist. And Richard is very fair and reasonable in his pricing. I purchased the fabric myself so the money paid to Richard was for labor and other materials. I was not charged extra for pick-up or delivery. If you trust your furniture with ArtCraft Upholstery, you will not be disappointed.
Richard was a consummate gentleman throughout the entire process of helping us choose appropriate material and installing it. He was very accommodating in schedule (he worked on the pieces while we were away for vacation), and quite patient as we mulled over several options for selecting and obtaining materials. Once we finally decided, the work was beautifully done and the end result was more than satisfactory.
Rich from Art Craft Upholstery did a great job reupholstering a loveseat from the early 1900s that I inherited from my grandmother. The piece had a lot of tufting and he did a beautiful job with all the details. He is a very nice guy and easy to work with. He was patient while I decided on the fabric and he kept me apprised of his progress.. The work took about 3 months but I was in no particular rush so that was fine. It was a pleasure to work with Rich and I would definitely use his services in the future.
Mr. Leach did a wonderfully complete make-over of my beloved chair. He was punctual, professional, a perfectionist, and honest. He picked up my chair to be reupholstered, and was flexible to allow me to pick out my own fabric from any place I chose, and over time communicated to me progress of his work. It looks like I gave him an old worn out chair, and he returned a brand new chair in its place. I loved also that he touched up the finish of the woodwork.
When I first called, Mr. Leach did not think he could take on the job because he works mostly alone and it is a very large piece. When he did take it, he was clear that it would take him a long time to get it done. He did the job by the date he had promised. He was always extremely pleasant to deal with. He tried to limit his aesthetic advice, but the advice he gave was good. The sofa was done very nicely and I’m extremely pleased with the results.
Richard reupholstered a sofa and two chairs in ultra suede for me. He did a very beautiful job using a difficult fabric. He is highly skilled, kind, thoughtful and professional.

Richard is great. A friend has used him for years and she suggested I contact him this winter to recover a cute chair I wanted to save as well as a curved bench. Rich matched a complicated pattern perfectly on the chair and suggested some cool design changes. You get what you pay for with upholsterers. Rich did a very nice job for me at an ok price; worth it. Book early, he’s busy.
In 2008, Richard Leach reupholstered my parents’ 1962 sofa, and recently a friend managed to break one of the bars in the wooden frame. I’m about 40 minutes away. Although he brought all kinds of tools for any eventuality, he was actually able to fix it simply and quickly with a mending plate, reconnecting the clean break in the wood. He did it in the half hour allotted by a loading zone for parking. He was very fair in what he charged, and I’m very grateful. My Blue Beauty is back to it’s old self! Mr. Leach is a nice man, a capable man, and a fair man, and I’d recommend him to anybody!
A very beautiful job using a difficult fabric.He is HIGHLY skilled, kind, thoughtful and professional.
