Our Menaul showroom consumed a lot of our time and attention
that we felt would be better spent at our factory. We
chose to close that location and will opened a small
showroom at our factory location in January of 2003.
We did not go out of business, we just closed that store.
We will not however continue to carry furniture that
we did not produce - mostly sold in the Sofas To Go
When it comes to the basic measurements that do effect
the engineering - it's not a problem. We cannot modify
the lengths and depths of upholstered pieces like sofas,
loveseats or living room chairs. The only other thing
that we do not do is any kind of turning - like on a
lathe. Otherwise our motto is if we can draw it, we
can build it!
If you are in the greater Albuquerque area, we can arrange
someone come help you. This will need to be scheduled
and may take up to three weeks. Otherwise we suggest
a visit to our factory complete with all of the measurements
Yes. Please call us to see how many yards would be needed
and we will let you send your fabric to us.
We only reupholster furniture that we have made at our
Albuquerque factory. Please be aware that it is often
expensive to reupholster because of the labor hours
involved. We start from scratch - you get new foam,
new decking, and new fabric. The only thing that we
utilize from the original piece is the frame on dining
chairs or the arms on sofas. The frames that we build
are built to outlast the upholstery, so it is a good
idea to reupholster.
We still sell the kits. If you want to pick them up
from the factory, see "Directions". If you
like, we can US Mail them as well. Just call or e-mail
us and we'll take care of you.

It goes back to our physics classes, when two objects
rub together one of those has to give. Since fabric
upholstery is normally wanted soft, it eventually gives.
What is does when it wears is another issue. Most fabrics
will "pill" or get nubby as it is worn. This
is natural and there's nothing that can be done about
this. To help ease wear spots, on sofas, it is recommended
that you flip the cushions over periodically or if they
cannot be flipped, rotate their position. Typically
on a sofa, the middle cushion does not get much wear
and usually one of the arm cushions gets more use. Rotating
the cushion that gets used more around will help the
overall look of sofa. For dining chairs, swap the chair
with a spot that doesn't get used as much. Vacuuming
the upholstery also adds life to the fabrics by getting
out the abrasive sand and dirt.
All of our furniture still has its warranties. The only
items that you are responsible for are proof of purchase
and to get the piece to our factory. We can arrange
a pick-up and delivery for a charge. Please call us
to set up any service calls.
Styles and colors are not problem, although sometimes
fabrics have been discontinued. Something else to consider
is that the different finishes age differently over
the years. We can either match the current shade of
the piece, or match the original color of the piece.
Heck, while you're at it, why not have it all refinished
