OUR ALCHEMY FAMILY
Welcome to ALCHEMY (reupholstery and design). ALCHEMY means transformation - change! Our ALCHEMY family believes in the power of restoration in discovering, exploring, enjoying an authentic lifestyle as a new creation - a "ChangeMAKER". Our vision and heart's prayer is to serve others with integrity, to inspire the increase of JOY OF CREATION in the home and local community, and to encourage others to share the JOY of the process of becoming a new creation.
My father volunteers as my #1 GO TO GUY FOR THE UPHOLSTERY ANSWERS.
My husband serves in furniture refinishing and chair caning repairs.
I serve as lead upholsterer/designer.
My father, as a young Upholsterer, over 30 years ago.
My husband doing some wood repairs.
That's me doing some spring repairs.
WE ARE A SMALL FAMILY BUSINESS that loves to recreate/redesign lost and forgotten treasures that would otherwise end up in the landfill. I was trained in the craft of REUPHOLSTERY from age 11 by my father, a retired upholsterer with over 30 years experience in the industry.
We believe in Slow Design - Slow Design is to promote well being for individuals, society, and the natural environment. Slow Design seeks a mindful approach to designing that takes into consideration a wide range of materials and social factors as well as the short and long-term impacts of the design.
I studied Architecture Design at Penn State University and received a BA in Integrative Arts as well as a Minor in Architectural History and Sociology.
We feel blessed to have an opportunity to serve others and in the process become transformed as Changemakers in our community. We look forward to serving you.
