Chair Rental Offer for Weddings Effected by the Colorado Flooding

Are you planning a wedding on September 14, 15, 20 or 22? Has your gorgeous venue with views of overlooking mountains been moved to a YMCA or banquet hall with metal folding chairs? Or no chair rental at all?

If you need chairs in the next two weekends because your initial venue displaced your wedding, we can help. Our collection of brown and white mismatched vintage chairs can turn an old barn, a YMCA or homogenous hotel room into something special! We want your wedding to be special amid the chaos.

Claire and Eric’s wedding at Highlands Ranch Mansion

On May 25, 2013 – we had the wonderful opportunity to provide chairs for Claire and Eric’s wedding at the Highlands Ranch Mansion. They used our dresser, dessert hutch, white ladders and white vintage chairs.

For their head table, Claire & Eric used the white vintage chairs while their guests sat in chavari chairs. It made the head table stand out and look so unique. Isn’t the floral arrangement over the head table by Flower House so cool? The recently refinished floors at Highlands Ranch Mansion were gorgeous too.

Upholstery Services – Dining Room Seat Replacement

As you may know, our inventory of 100+ vintage chairs have been bought from thrift stores and estate sales. We have re-upholstered all of chairs, as well as couches and sofas. When we are not renting our chairs, we are repairing. Please contact us if you’re interested in our upholstery services in Denver, Colorado.

Dining Room Seat Replacement starts at $30 per chair. If you supply the fabric – we will replace the foam, batting, remove the old fabric and recover the chair. During the process, we will take pictures of the old and new cushion so you can be sure you are getting a high quality repair. The cost is $30 per chair. It does not include the fabric or additional items. Here is a list of our most common repair charges.

  • Is the wood part of the seat cracked or missing?+ $5
  • Do you want piping as a box cushion? +$5
  • Do you want piping lined at the bottom section of the chair cushion? +$5
  • Do you want decorative trim? +$5 (if you supply the material)
  • Does the chair to need to be secured so it’s no longer wobbly? +$15
  • Do you want the chair painted or stained? +$20

As part of our dining room seat replacement service, we will loan you temporary chairs while your chair gets a face lift. Full payment is required at time of service if you use our loaner chair program. Depending on the season, turn-around time is approximately 2-5 business days.

Imagine what your before and after could look like!

Re-upholstering a Side Chair for Lounge Furniture

At Chairs with Character, we have over 100+ chairs with upholstered seats. Some seat replacements are straight forward while others are a bit more fancy with tufted buttons. We put our chairs through extensive chair rehab ensuring the stability and quality of each piece.

chair rehab

Because the chairs we buy are used, we replace 100% of the cushions and fabric. If we bring the chairs inside and our dog starts sniffing it, I know that he smells a funk whether its a cat or other allergens. Next, we bring the chairs into the workshop and start the upholstering project. Design Sponge has a great tutorial post for basic seat replacements.

While seat replacements are straight forward, don’t let Pinterest trick you into thinking re-upholstering is a walk in the park. Recently, I spoke to a bride who was going to buy lounge furniture and have it re-upholstered only to find out that it typically cost $400+ per piece. A small side chair can take 10+ labor hours, 5 yards of fabric and supplies to upholster. While you can find lounge furniture off of Craigslist or other vendors, we re-upholster our lounge furniture in-house to ensure quality control.

In the past month, we bought this chair at a thrift store. We have painted the legs and replaced the fabric. We only have the box cushion to complete before showing you the side-by-side before and after!

Last night, we grew our collection. We now have 3 similarly style chairs + a long couch in off-white. These will be ready for rent around June 2013. Contact us if you’re interested in seeing these pieces in person.
