Simmering Upholstery was opened in 1934 and started operating out of a garage off of 17th Avenue SW.
A few decades later we moved to 10th Avenue and have been owning and operating the business for 4 generations and counting.
Custom upholstery is done with the customer, specifying design details and finishes, and we will work to achieve that goal. Special requests are welcome and pieces can be created from photographs and upholstered with genuine leather or fabric selected from thousands of samples from major suppliers.
We have a reputation for restoring and cleaning the most delicate fabrics such as tapestries, needlepoint, and leathers. As a result customers continue to entrust their most treasured furnishings to Simmering Upholstery professionals.
We offer a range of repair services, including but not limited to fixing legs, frames, and springs.

Bob did an amazing job when he restored an examination chair for my office. He is also very reasonably priced compared to others in Calgary. Highly recommend this place!
They did a miracle job with my Indian sofa. I can't believe my eyes. Most reasonable and hardworking place in Calgary. I would strongly recommend them. Jim and Nattalia are geat team. They delivered all the way to Chestermere for free. Can't thank enough for everything. Used the same fabric again and fix it was a big challenge but they did an excellent job. Thank you Jim.
Calgary Resident/Dog Owner
We had an unfortunate doggy pee on our couch. Simmering came out within an hour picked up our couch cushions and had them back to us in no time. The cushion looks better than ever and didn’t smell like chemicals!!! Highly recommend this team, it was a pleasure. We will definitely use again.
Simmering did a top notch job of re-upholstering our chesterfield, chair, and ottoman. The service from the fabric selection process through to delivery was exemplary. The craftsmanship and care shown by employees would be difficult to match anywhere. Thanks.
These guys are incredible. They did such an amazing job of our bar stools. The stitch work is better than the original, they worked ahead of schedule, and were very professional. I highly recommend!
Frequently Asked Questions
Why reupholster rather than buy a new piece of furniture?
New pieces of furniture tend to have weaker frames and parts that may only last a few years, whereas older pieces of furniture tend to be stronger and more durable. So rather than buying a new piece of furniture, you can get your older piece recovered in a new fabric and have fresh foam put in.
Do I need to purchase fabric through Simmering Upholstery?
We at Simmering Upholstery offer a wide variety of fabrics that you can choose from; however, if you have your own fabric, we will have to measure the yardage needed for the job then we can go through with it.
Do we do automotive reupholstery?
We do not do automotive reupholstery, but sometimes we can do boat cushions depending on the specific job.
What is upholstery?
