I thank the neighbor who recommended Ismael Banuelos of Ismael's Custom Upholstery in Dublin (925-216-7415 - firstname.lastname@example.org).
He just delivered my re-upholstered wing chair and ottoman and they are beautiful! He reinforced both pieces making them stronger inside and he refinished wood parts on both. I happily recommend this lovely man who restores belief in fine craftsmanship. (May, 2017)
Over the past 8 months my husband and I have had several chairs reupholstered. I would like to recommend our upholsterer, Ismael Baneulos.
Two of these chairs had been in storage for years, and needed a great deal of "rehabilitation." Ismael not only created new cushions for them (old Mission Oak chairs) but also completely dismantled one of them, and reglued it so that it is now once again solid. Two others were new dining table chairs that had no seat cushions, and he worked on these so that they are not only more comfortable, but also much more sophisticated.
Ismael's work ethic is very strong, and I feel that he went "over and above" what I would have expected. He finished all the work when he promised it, and also picked up the furniture and dropped it off.
Ismael is a fine craftsman, and a warm intelligent, engaging person with whom I have had several wonderful conversations. He can be reached by email at: email@example.com (April, 2017)
