At Kay Chesterfield, we’re so proud of our Craft that we invite you to stop by and take a guided tour through our workshop. Meet our team, talk with them about your project, and watch them work their re-upholstery magic …transforming worn furniture into unique and handsome pieces.  

Kriss, President & Owner:

What’s your favorite thing about working at KC? “I love collaborating with the craftsmen on the workshop floor and watching a unique project come to completion”. 

 

If you were a fabric, what would you be? "I’d be an environmentally-responsible wool, felt or hemp, because I’d like to help reduce the amount of harmful chemicals in our world.”

Lee, Residential and Fabric Selection Specialist:

What’s your favorite thing about working at KC? "In the 20 plus years I’ve been here, I love working with our clients—getting to know them, their lives and their tastes. I feel like I become more than Lee, Re-upholstery Advice-Giver, I become Lee, Friend.”

 

If you were a fabric, what would you be? I’d be raw silk because it flows freely and moves with the light.”

 

Gonzalo, Workshop Supervisor:

What’s your favorite thing about working at KC? “I’ve been here for more than 20 years, and I feel proud to be working for a company with a great reputation and strong heritage”. 

 

If you were a fabric, what would you be? “I’d be leather because it is strong, classic, and has more “alma” (soul) than fabrics.”

Valerie, Senior Project Manager:

What’s your favorite thing about working at KC? “I love the spirit of this place. We’re all part of a collaborative team, helping people make old furniture new. And Kay Chesterfield’s been doing it since 1921, so I’m excited to be part of such an impressive legacy”.

 

If you were a fabric, what would you be? "I’d be an eclectic blend: 46% Wool (for breathabiity and natural inflammability); 28% Bamboo Viscose (for environmental properties);12% Cotton (for cool earthiness); 7% Alpaca & 7% Mohair (for a cozy touch)"
