Tom Loszchuk: Hey Marc and Mandy! I’m here to talk to you about how you can jazz up your home with new upholstery or custom furniture. When doing a custom piece, we have all kinds of options to work with: the springs, the coils, the webbing, the stitching, the leather. There’s a limitless amount of selection in all these different things from all over the world that you can choose from. There’s a lot of opportunity to rejuvenate an existing piece of furniture that has fabric on it. There’s a lot of fantastic pieces out there and many of them unfortunately are going to landfill. We would prefer not to see that. If you have a custom piece in your home that you like, let us come and check if this is worth reupholstering. Many pieces are and so if you do then you can choose your own fabric or vinyl or leather, what stitch you want, what foam you want, and we can bring this piece back to life.
Why invest in custom furniture?
The main reason people opt to customize their furniture is to get a perfect size, fit, and function. For these reasons, customization improves the efficiency of the home, as your furniture is doing the exact job you need it to do for the space it’s in. Zenlia Home Store specializes in furniture that is custom-made and designed for maximum efficiency and utility.
Tips for customizing your furniture:
- Plan ahead and plan well

- Have physical pictures and drawings of exactly what kinds of details you like
- Prioritize customization in rooms that are used frequently
- Order samples of things like fabric and finishing whenever possible
- Consider your delivery method
- Inquire about the return policy
