Dilcia's story

Although the U.S is my home now when I first came here, I had no income, no education in English, and a family to care for. Through plain hard work and grit, I succeeded in establishing my upholstery business in New York back in 1991. Although upholstery is humble in its nature, it's significance is not. To reupholster a piece of furniture is to preserve memories, brighten a room, and bring joy into a client's eyes; it is to breathe life into a forgotten item. I enjoy my work, and I'm happy to say that my team does too, we know the significance of our trade-in our community. Both places of business and homes get love from my shop and if you visit upper Manhattan, you'll be able to see moments of my craft in small shops and windows.
