PROCESS OF BECOMING A NEW CREATION
ALCHEMY means transformation.
We are here to help you transform your project from the OLD to the NEW. Each project is custom done to meet your one of a kind design style and budget. We follow a 3 step design process of 1. Discovering, 2. Exploring, 3. Enjoying in order to provide you with our best service.
STEP 1: DISCOVERING (YOUR STORY)
THE HISTORY OF YOUR STORY
HOW OLD IS YOUR PROJECT PIECE, IS THE FRAME STRONG ENOUGH FOR REUPHOLSTERING OR WOULD A SLIPCOVER DO JUST FINE?
Thus, begins the storytelling process. Reupholstery is more than beautiful fabric. Just like a home remodeling project we must learn about the frame of the structure in order to decide on the best approach towards transformation. A vintage furniture piece will be your best bet for reupholstery because of the quality of the craftsmanship from days gone by (real wood vs fiberboard /MDF). Newer mass produced furniture can contain both materials and if the furniture is medium grade the best approach is a custom slipcover.
Then comes fabric selection. We offer fabrics for sale from Greenhouse Fabrics, Charlotte Fabrics, Revolution, Sunbrella and many more (free samples provided to all ALCHEMY clients).
We also offer custom refinishing in 3 types of treatments: chalk paint, oil-based stain, or latex spraying. Finished with clear/dark wax or poly.
