Manuel Niola is a man who takes great pride in his work and the results he achieves demontrate that! He is friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. He redid a sofa and an antique chair for us. Both are perfect! I would recommend him to anyone who wants both value AND quality. I have already had two people as who did my furniture and both have requested a referral!

Excellent job, excellent service. We will continue to patronize your company.

I would be very remiss if I didnt thank you all for the great service. I am extremely pleased with the service I received. Its nice dealing with a company who can give us personal service. Thank you for making our day perfect!

We recently had a very large coffee table upholstered & turned into a beautiful ottoman! The workmanship Niola Furniture did was far beyond what we expected. It really does look like a work of art. Manuel is so knowledgeable, prompt & wonderful to work with. His prices are reasonable & I would recommend him to anyone & give him my return business any day.

Your support team is prompt, professional and courteous. It mirrored the companys ability to deliver on its promises

Your staff are what makes you special. All professional and friendly.

Manual refinished my dining room table and upholstered 6 dining room chairs. He is extremely knowledgeable,conscientious and reasonable rates. My table and chairs look brand new. Don’t waste any time getting other estimates he does amazing work.

AMAZING WORK! I had them repair and reupholster my great great grandma’s sofa and chair. The pieces are well over 100 years old and have been reupholstered several times. The last time was 30 years ago. Niola/Manuel did a noticeably MUCH higher quality of work than whoever reupholstered the pieces last time. My mom, who had them reupholstered 30 years ago, was so impressed with Niola’s work that she offered to help pay for it after seeing the finished pieces because it was “well worth the money.”

When Manuel dropped the finished pieces off he said that he was proud of the work he did on them. He should be proud and I’m impressed that he does take pride in his work, and it definitely shows.

Niola was very professional and easy to work with. Their workmanship is impeccable. Highly recommend and would definitely use again.

Niola Furniture does amazing work. They redesigned my sofa and it turned out incredible. I strongly recommend Niola Furniture, you won’t be disappointed!

We feel VERY fortunate to

We feel VERY fortunate to have found Manuel. We had a leather sofa and loveseat which needed to be reupholstered and Manuel did an absolutely beautiful job. From helping us select the leather to delivering the final product, he was professional and easy to work with. He took a couple of pretty worn out pieces and made them better than new. His work is impeccable and he is so nice to work with. He does amazing work and we will use him again if we have another project, and we put him first on the list of upholsterers in the Twin Cities. Anyone with an upholstery job should be using Manuel without question.

Quality work

Manuel was great to work with from start to finish. He helped me find the right fabric to reupholster my headboard and and bench and it looks amazing. His quality of work was impeccable and I would highly recommend him to anyone. His price was very fair and he delivered the pieces back to me on time, as promised. I will definitely use him again and truly appreciated his professionalism.

Excellent job on my two oversized Black Lacquered chairs with nail heads. Less than two week turnaround and very convenient pickup and delivery.

I don’t make decisions very

I don’t make decisions very easily, I think I always believe that if I just look a little longer I’ll find something better. The Niola Furniture website is impressive as were the reviews. But it was the moment I met Manuel, and heard him tell of his beginnings in the upholstery industry and the passion he has for creating quality work, I knew I didn’t need to look further! After 30+ yrs we had our 2 wingback chairs upholstered by Manuel. The price was very reasonable and timeline was great. And the best part, the quality of this man’s workmanship was beyond my expectations. The chairs are perfect! I plan on having another chair that belonged to my mother redone, and with as much sentimental value that I have for this piece I wouldn’t let anyone else touch it than Manuel and his staff.
Thank you Manuel.

I recently had a chair

I recently had a chair reupholstered and a family heirloom bureau repaired. Manuel picked up the pieces to transport to his workroom. He was prompt, professional, and simply delightful to work with. The work he did was absolutely beautiful. I would not hesitate to recommend Niola to anyone who needs these services. I am so very happy that I discovered this company and will definitely use their services again!

Manuel and his team reupholstered

Manuel and his team reupholstered a chair, ottoman and antique bench for me. The work is absolutely stunning and such high quality. The new fabrics are beautiful and the team at Niola furniture went above and beyond in enhancing the cushion in the bench. It has never looked so lovely nor been as comfortable. I am so happy with craftsmanship, quality and professional service. I already have plans for Niola to reupholster a sofa and winged-back chair.
Thank you for giving my furniture new life!

Amazing work

We have used Niola Furniture twice and his work is impeccable. The first time he reupholstered a 1920’s wicker lounge and most recently 4 dining room chairs from Mexico. His workmanship is of the utmost highest quality and I would highly recommend using him. He is professional, knowledgeable, and his prices are reasonable. He is easy to work with and we will most definitely use him again.

Herringbone fabric Sofa, chair & Ottoman

My wife and I own a modest house, so the furniture we have is proportioned to fit the spaces accordingly. We tried to find new furniture with the same dimensions, but everything we looked at was bigger and deeper. We actually liked the style of our sofa, chair and ottoman so much, we decided to find fabric that closely matched the original and go the re-upholstery route. After reading customer reviews on Angie’s List, we decided to go with Niola. We are SOOOO glad we did! After getting a rough estimate, we got an agreed upon start date and dropped off the furniture. About 3 weeks later they called and said it was done. We were a little nervous about whether they were going to duplicate the fabric directions of the original, but they didn’t disappoint! Everything looked and felt fantastic!- The piping, fit of the fabric (over the curved arms and backs), the cushion foam density and feel- all was better than new! We will definitely be back and recommend Niola to anyone that has re-upholstery needs.

Thanks Manuel and Niola crew!

Loving Manuel’s work at Lake Okoboji, Iowa!

Manuel is very professional and takes such pride in his work! I love my two beautiful chairs that he upholstered. I’m so anxious to see the other items that he is working on for me. I recommend him to all…. He is honest, friendly and fast! Best in the business! A real professional!

Carhie Harden

Awesome service

We found Niola Furniture online to get a price on doing a re-upholstery on a old ottoman we had. We brought it in on a Wednesday and picked it up on Friday morning! It looked fantastic and the price was extremely reasonable. We will definitely be back!

After suffering sticker shock from

After suffering sticker shock from looking to replace a leather sectional that had two badly damaged seat, I looked into having Manuel and his team fix and reupholster them. He took great care in selecting a leather to blend in with the remaining sections so that only the damaged two needed to be repaired. It was so much more economical than either reupholstering the entire sectional or replacing it that I also had him reupholster a wingback recliner that had also suffered at the hand of puppy chewing. The wingback he was able to complete using a fabric I had purchased (thinking I would try to do it on my own). I am so glad I had him do it instead. His attention to detail in lining up the patterns on the fabric make it a work of art – far beyond my expectations for it. Their workmanship is stunning, he was wonderful to work with, reasonable pricing, and the pick up and delivery of my pieces made it so easy. I will definitely be using Manuel Niola and his team for my next upholstery projects!

We recently had 5 barstools

We recently had 5 barstools for my kitchen island reupholstered and are delighted with the results. Manuel took the time to talk with me about the project and show me samples based on my description of what I was looking for. His workmanship is impeccable and the chairs look gorgeous. The service was personal and courteous, the price fair, and the work was completed quickly and with care. I would trust him again with future projects and highly recommend his work.

Large sectional reupholster

Niola did an awesome job recovering our large sectional couch. New fabric and cushions. Result looks better than when it was new. Manuel was very helpful through the entire process. The cost was fair and much less than the cost of a new couch.

We had Niola make a

We had Niola make a set of custom leather banquette cushions with tufts and buttons, a feature that other upholsterers can told us they refused to do because it was too hard. Niola nailed it! The cushions were fantastic, and EXACTLY what we had asked for. Fantastic work–thanks so much!
