Welcome to Richard Hosker Whyte’s Antiques and Upholstery, offering high quality Furniture Repair and
Re-upholstery for both private and contract clients throughout San Diego and the surrounding areas.

With over 10,000 fabrics to choose from in the Shop, you’ll certainly be able to find the right fabric to enhance and complement your furniture at Whyte’s Antiques and Upholstery.

Our skilled upholsterers are able to create beautiful results using traditional techniques and a careful eye for detail. Our experience means that we are equally at home re-upholstering a beautiful and valuable antique chair, a striking contemporary sofa or a popular restaurant’s booths.

Our service spans the full range from repairing small tears in fabric, recovering a cushion right up to our full and comprehensive traditional restoration service which includes the salvaging of horsehair and retention of the original structure complemented by springs, burlap, cotton wadding, down and a wide range of both comfort and preservation foams.

Buttons, channel backs, tufting, welt cord, braid, zippers and cushions are all supplied and expertly hand finished to order.

Our selection includes beautiful fabrics from such brands as Robert Allen, Ralph Lauren, Maxwell, Burch Fabrics, Charlotte Fabrics, Duralee, Silver State and Greenhouse. Our huge range of fabrics also includes a wide choice of high quality imported European and American leathers, velvet, vinyl, micro suede and faux leather. And you can rest assured in the knowledge all our work on your furniture is completed here by experienced craftsmen in San Diego.

Perhaps you have been deliberating whether to replace your sofa or to re-upholster your existing one or perhaps whether your antique chair or dining set really can be brought back to life. Well, our before and after photos below demonstrate what amazing results we can achieve – and often so much more cost effectively than a new purchase!
