When is the last time you looked in the mirror and told yourself "I am enough." It's true, you may not have luxurious locks or blemish free skin, but you have a killer laugh and a way of making anyone feel instantaneously comfortable. Stop thinking about all the things you don't have and start celebrating the things you DO. Repeat after me, "I-AM-ENOUGH." This vintage mirror was upholstered with an Asian-inspired linen. Decorated with flowers, birds, and pagodas, this mirror is the fairest one of all.

SOLD | Soda Fountain | Pair of Victorian Style White Iron Bar Stools

It is easy to imagine a couple of teenage love birds nervously swiveling on these stools while on a first date at the local soda fountain. This pair of  Victorian-style white iron bar stools both have a handy (or should I say footsy) footrest. The seat of each of the stools has been upholstered in black vinyl. Each stool swivels.

SOLD | Uncommon Pheasant | Custom Made 1970s Love Seat by Umphred Furniture

Umphred Furniture, which is now known as Cypress Furniture, produces a high end product in an industry that is filled with cheap, poorly made furniture. This furniture manufacturer only sells to dealers and designers because they want to maintain a superior level of customer service and quality assurance.

This custom made 1970s love seat by Umphred Furniture has a curved front and down cushions. The compact stature of the sofa would make it perfect for a studio apartment.

Orient Yourself

With this ring, you just wed his entire family.

This set of eight thin, high-backed Asian style chairs were made in 1959. Asian undertones are evident throughout from the floral upholstery to the wooden base and curved legs. Each button backed chair has been carefully handcrafted.

This vintage velvet slipper chair is from the 1950s and has button detailing and multi colored stripes. Would make a great writing or vanity chair.

Fabric Shopping in Downtown L. A.

Downtown LA Fabric District Choosing a fabric for my home or for the shop used to be a problem for me.  After so many mistakes spending unnecessary money and time driving around too much, I have become a better fabric shopper. Just like shoes, perfume or clothing, fabrics are very personal. From texture, color, and pattern to quality and feeling,  choosing the right fabric can be a nightmare.  While some like strong colors, huge prints, or  harsh texture, others prefer soft, quiet and subtle fabrics. For that, I believe every chosen fabric reflects the personality of the buyer.

Stay Focused on Your Budget

When it comes to selecting a fabric, the first thing I think about is how much I want to spend on the total project. That way I don't go over the budget.  For example, I spent 150.00 on an awesome 8 foot 1970's sofa and the  upholstery guy charged me 450.00 to do the job. On top of that, I needed 15 yards of fabric which I had  to add-on to my budget.  These are things that I keep in mind to keep my self focused.

To save money, I go right to the source; the Downtown L. A. Fabric District. This is roughly the area between 9th and 8th streets and San Julian and Maple Street. There are over 50 shops and unlimited fabrics to choose from.  Michael Levine and Home Fabrics are two of my favorite ones.

Michael Levine

Michael Levine has two locations across from each other on Maple Ave. One of these has everything you need for upholstery. From sofa fabrics to cow hides, you will find it all here.  You will find the latest styles here and also be sure to look for their clearance tables in the back of the store where you can get some fantastic deals on high quality fabric.

Home Fabrics

My second recommendation is Home Fabrics located at 910 s. Wall St. (213) 689-9141. This is a very organized shop with two floors of higher end fabrics  and a good selection of trims. They have a great selection of velvet, silks and taffeta and the more you buy the more you will save. If you buy whats left on the role, you will get a better price. I love to browse all the different shops but seem to always purchase from these two stores.  I like how both these stores have the prices on the rolls whereas other stores in the neighborhood seem to price their merchandise  based on the way they perceive you and your ability to pay.

 

If you have any questions about fabric shopping or you have a project you are working on, contact us at 323-644-5590 and we would be happy to help you.

Vintage Furniture Upholstery in Los Angeles

At Casa Victoria, we believe a great investment is a high quality piece of vintage furniture. A sofa or chair that has been around since Kennedy was President and Pan Am were flying can easily be refreshed with new fabric and paint and provide decades more use and enjoyment.

Reupholstering: Make it your own for less

Reupholstered Sofa from Casa Victoria LA

The vintage furniture we sell at Casa Victoria, such as Baker, Henredon, Drexel and Lane, are of the highest quality craftsmanship. This means the bones of the piece, the hardwood frames and detailing were made to last. Reupholstering allows you to take one of these unique, high quality pieces and make it your own.

 

Of course an additional benefit is that by reupholstering, you get a top of the line piece of furniture at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a similar item new.

Caban Upholstery

We realize that taking on an upholstering project for some seems like a major task which is why we’re very happy to recommend our neighborhood upholsterer Tonatiuh at Caban Upholstery. He’s a small shop not far from Dodger stadium who does fantastic work at very reasonable prices, he finishes his work on time and even gives you your extra fabric back.

Tonatiuh became a master upholsterer years ago and we’ve been working with him for the last 4 years. You can contact him by phone at 323 921 7739 and do let him know that we sent you.

Do-it-yourself at All Size Foam and Fabric

Upholstery Supplies from All Size Foam & Fabric

For our do-it-yourself customers, we highly recommend All Size Foam and Fabric in Vernon where you can get all you would need for your project, from beautiful upholstery fabric to replacement sofa legs. It’s a large warehouse space where you can walk in with your old sofa cushion or pattern and be walking out minutes later with new comfortable foam.

Their selection of foam is fantastic and they will be happy to tell you about the different types. And did we mention their prices are really reasonable? Check out their great customer reviews on Yelp.

Always new furniture at Casa Victoria LA

We always have an interesting selection of sofas, chairs, stools, etc, waiting to be reupholstered, and new merchandise arrives every week. Come and stop by the shop and keep an eye on the CasaVictoriala.com RSS feed. You are sure to find that perfect item, that when completed with your touch, will be a special addition to your home.
