Customer Images

Chairs restored Just a note to say thank you for a job well done. We are very pleased with how the chairs turned out. The quality of the Charlotte commercial fabric and the workmanship of your upholsterers have exceeded our expectations. While the dining room set is already 20 years old, it was made in Canada and the base of the chairs as well as the table are made of powder coated steel and are virtually indestructible.

I have attached a photo of our dining room set. Feel free to show it to your prospective customers and to add it to your website.

Once again, thank you for a great job.

Best regards,

Paul Pinaud

Customer Comments

Dear Kessels’ staff,

Somewhat belatedly, Tony and I would like to thank you – all of you – for the excellent work you have just done for us. Both the large sofa unit and the small sofa are quite perfectly executed, and are giving us a great deal of pleasure.

From the careful pick-up and return crew, to the matching, designing and sewing crews, to the front of house staff, especially Ria, with their patient help and support for our fabric selecting, everything was done with the utmost professional care.

Visitors have admired our all-new living room, and ask what firm did this, and we have told them with complete confidence that Kessels’ are the company to go to, for upholstery perfection.

With our sincere regards,

Tony and Judy Stansby, Kanata, ON

The horsehair fabric was supplied by the German company Emil Rotter. The work has been featured on their website. The article is in German, but here is a translated version. April 28, 2021 …
