Warren and Elizabeth were both so generous with their time, expertise and brilliant advice.
We inherited an unusual sofa-type piece of furniture, and were hoping for a few cushions to brighten it up, and render it usable once again. Elizabeth worked with us at length to help us find the perfect fabric and cushion arrangement. She was wonderfully respectful of our budget and off-beat tastes.
Warren and his team of artisans had brilliant intuition about the height, look and feel of the piece. They went way above-and-beyond, adding wood to the frame in a seamless way that kept the integrity of the original design and brought it up to a more usable height.
Every extra consideration was taken- so many that we didn't expect or know were possible. And the thing is wildly comfortable!
Delivery was convenient and perfectly managed.
We are so grateful to have found them, and will be back again.
Lovely humans. Great work.
The entire team at TapeMeasure is absolutely fantastic! Every detail was covered for my extensive home decorating needs - fabric choices, designs, installation - all were done with the highest professionalism and beautiful attention to esthetics.
Every single person at TapeMeasure is an absolute joy to work with, and I should know as I spent many, many hours over many months working with them to design window treatments, bedding and upholstery throughout my entire house. They helped me to make this the home of our dreams!
Working with Elizabeth and her team was a pleasure. They are unpretentious, have the ability to listen to your needs and guide you to solutions that work into your aesthetic and budget requirements. I have partially redecorated 4 rooms which can be more challenging than a complete project and the work they delivered is of high quality and on time. Just as importantly, the upholstered or the new pieces were the perfect additions to complement and yet update the rooms. They offered choices without being overwhelming and were willing to spend the right amount of time for you to make the selections.
I had them make drapes for my living room. They helped me with everything from picking out fabric to picking out hardware. They were very accommodating. Will definitely use them again. Very happy with the end result.
I was very pleased with the work performed, which has held up extremely well. The professionals at Tapemeasure reupholstered my antique (possibly Victorian), side chair, which had been my grandmother's. They replaced its tatty silk cover with a beautiful striped fabric. They also completely renovated the springs and underside of the chair, and carefully refinished the wood trims. They even found a matching passamenterie trim to complement the new fabric. The result was a very sturdy and serviceable piece of furniture, quite comfortable and good looking. I sit in it every day. The job was completed on time. The price was right, too.
Many years ago I built a sofa frame of American Black Walnut. I was pleased with the frame but not the cushions/upholstery. Two iterations later I decided that I needed professional help. I had never used an interior designer before. I contacted Tapemeasure and they readily undertook the challenge of creating a comfortable sofa. This they accomplished helping me with fabric choice and coming up with a design that has transformed the sofa.
Now whenever I enter the living room it generated a smile. A major success and a stunning piece, to my eyes. Completed on time and within budget this was a delightful experience. Elizabeth and Warren and their colleagues couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. A great experience and a lovely piece of furniture after 30+ years of frustration and discomfort.
Elizabeth was very helpful to me related to several projects in my home including:
Reupholstering my dining room chairs with a beautiful fabric... a light color, where I was originally thinking of something dark... I love how Elizabeth helped me see a different idea and they look great;
Reupholstering two arm chairs in my living room.... here there was less change, but the quality of the fabric chosen was terrific and i am very happy with how it turned out;
New wall paper for the stairway going upstairs and the top of stairs hallway... beautiful bold but subtle design perfectly mixing something classic yet contemporary and, therefore, adding a refresh to the space;
Beautiful, delicate Italian curtains for my living room, sunroom, and kitchen.... more gauze like than anything but incorporating subtle designs that add to the softness and beauty of the rooms.
I could go on as Elizabeth has helped me with other smaller projects. the key thing is that TapeMeasure has great and unusual fabrics, she takes the time to understand your space and tastes, and she has a great sense of style and challenges you to go outside what you may have walked in with as your idea. so what the many projects that Elizabeth has helped me with have been a collaboration where it is clearly what I love, but Elizabeth made it so much better by the quality of her materials/products and insight to help me some more exciting possibilities.
As i am now planning a small addition to my home, I can't wait to once again work with Elizabeth to make it beautiful.
Elizabeth at Tape Measure was fantastic. I wanted to reupholster two chairs and an ottoman and had some vague ideas about what kind of fabric I wanted. She helped me refine my ideas and collected great options for our project. After picking a fabric to work with, her husband picked up our chairs and ottoman and the work was finished in about 3 or 4 weeks. They look amazing and they even threw in a couple of pillows that they made with the left over fabric. We are very happy with our chairs that feel new again!
When my husband and I decided to do some redecorating, we also decided that we wanted to keep some of our chairs, which were family heirlooms. But they were desperately in need of updating and repair. We had heard about TapeMeasure from friends and the excellent re-upholstery work they do. We weren't disappointed. From the personal attention, spot-on taste of Elizabeth Calderone, who owns the shop with her husband Warren Cook, they helped us every step of the way -- from fabric selection and other decorating tips that have made a real difference in the appearance of our home. The style and feeling of their new shops says a lot about what you can expect. Ours was a first-rate experience.
The exemplary customer service as well as the outstanding upholstery, re-upholstery and fabrication of numerous drapes and pillows is the reason that TapeMeasure exceeded my expectations when redecorating my home. The attention to detail and expert craftsmanship was demonstrated when fabric patterns were joined and looked seamless. The owners, Elizabeth and Warren, in addition to their staff, take pride in every project they undertake. Their enthusiasm for finding the perfect accent trim on the smallest pillow is equal to redesigning and re-upholstering a 10 foot sofa. The exuberant look on their customer's faces when projects are completed is really what it's all about for the owners of TapeMeasure.
Highest quality standards in every category - the TapeMeasure Design team has an eye for beauty, incredible service, impeccable taste, efficient delivery, fair pricing - the best experience I've had - ever. I recommend them to everyone who appreciates working with the best!
This is about taste and craft-
Elizabeth's experience in the fashion industry explains her taste level and sense of service. We happened upon Tapemeasure and there we found beautiful, fine quality fabrics at various prices. Our project was to be a family room chair and ottoman. They were picked up and reupholstered so beautifully that - we decided to change our roman shades...then our kitchen shade...then our dining room curtains...then our master bedroom curtains, You get the picture: we're always looking for a project so we can bring more of those gorgeous fabrics into our home.
Tape Measure did a wonderful job of reupholstering my sofas. They also made the window treatments for many of the rooms in our home. I was delighted to find gorgeous D&D fabrics and workmanship right in my own neighborhood! I would highly recommend Tape Measure for your decorating needs- the selection is suburb and well edited, the quality of workmanship is great and the owner, Elizabeth, has a keen design eye.
