Custom Upholstery

Classic foyer or entryway in a country home with blue upholstered wing back chairs and an antique stool with a white spindle staircase behind.

Everything in your space should be special — even that treasured, threadbare recliner that’s been with you for years. We breathe new life into your existing pieces and create a design plan that melds them together seamlessly with the new pieces you need. We select materials with an eye for utility as well as aesthetics, because our spaces are meant to be lived in and enjoyed. Our artisan partners are dedicated to delivering a product that is unique and made just for you.

We believe in preservation

In a disposable world, we take the time to build, and rebuild, things that are made to last and remain beautiful. Meticulous craftsmanship is reflected not only in a piece’s beauty, but also in it’s utility and comfort.

Every piece can be chic

These vintage dining chairs were well made from high quality materials but had seen better days. We collaborated with our partners to give them new life. A custom embroidered monogram makes them truly special.

Every piece can be unique

Two dated and forgettable armchairs seemed adrift and helpless in this home. We brought them back with a classic plaid fabric and a new seat for comfort. Now, they rival any contemporary piece in a luxury showroom – but no one else has chairs just like these.

If you have pieces that are important to you, we will integrate them with new pieces to create a cohesive and curated look. At Karen Fron Design, we help you find the perfect fit and deliver high quality pieces that are made (or re-made) to last.
