“I have done business with Knops Upholstery in Oakland for nearly 15 years.  I am a strong supporter of local, small businesses and have never been disappointed with either the quality, price or customer service demonstrated by Knops upholstery.

I deal with a high-end clientele who recognize and appreciate the work that KNOPS has done for use: Upholstering chairs, sofas, and specialty items like TV covers, valences, lambrequins, and the like.  Communication with Victor Rodrigues has always been excellent. The products have always been delivered on time and for the price agreed upon.  Victor has been able to get hard-to-find fabrics in specific colors at great rates.  I would strongly recommend Knops Upholstery to anyone wishing a fist-class product, on time and at a fair price.  Excellent business to deal with!”

Knops Upholstery can make anything you desire.  We’ve worked with Victor on everything from building a custom chaise, reupholstering an existing recliner, crafting a bench cushion from an animal hide, and creating a custom leather pillow.  Their end product is extremely well made and Victor always delivers on time.  Our custom chaise is absolutely gorgeous.  We had seen a chaise in a retail store with a design we liked.  Victor created the same chaise with a more sturdy, quality design.  Victor reupholstered an existing chair and brought it back to life.  Not only did he replace the upholstery but he also recommended adding more cushioning to restore the chair to its original brand new feel.  No detail is too small…Victor created a large orange leather pillow for us.  We weren’t sure what color stitching we should use to pick up the colors in the couch so Victor sent us 3 samples of stitching on the leather so we could choose.  Victor goes above and beyond when it comes to customer service.  He helps anticipate what you need and makes thoughtful recommendations.  During this process we worked with a designer who helped us pick out the fabric.  Victor was wonderful working with us and also interfacing with the designer to create a wonderful product.  We’d recommend Knops Upholstery to anyone looking for quality craftsmanship and will continue to use them for our home.

“One word can easily characterize Knops upholstery - Professionalism.  Victor and his staff are a pleasure to work with, and, as such, Knops easily matches the highest standards set by any of the top upholstery specialists throughout the Bay Area.  They are very prompt and reliable in all aspects of customer relations and service.  We were extremely pleased with the quality of work that Knops did for us and would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone seeking an exceedingly high and truly professional standard of customer satisfaction.”

“I think the first time I used Knops Upholstery was in 1980!  Mr. Knops was still working then.  The quality of the work was unsurpassed—and it still is.  I recently have had all my living room and family room pieces reupholstered.  For some of the pieces, this was the second time Knops has recovered them.  Every single piece is beautifully done; the pattern matching and the fit is perfect.  And everyone I have dealt with has been so nice and helpful, with good advice on fabric selection and style--we have done things like changing the feet, and raising the height of sofas. 
We are “three generations” of customers of Knops—both my mother and my daughter have pieces that Knops has recovered!”

“I thought it was time to turn in my 15 year old sofa for a new one, but, when I started looking for a new one, I didn't find anything that fit the spot and the more I thought about it, I realized that the "green" thing to do, was to recover and re-stuff my old sofa.  I called Knops; they came in less than a week after I called them and measured and told me how much fabric I would need; I found the perfect fabric and had it shipped directly to Knops; they came and picked the sofa up and the work was done in 3-4 weeks; the sofa was returned to me; and it was perfect - better than new and no land fill had been used.
I hope and expect that my sofa will last another 10 years and unequivocally recommend Knops to anyone who is looking to have upholstery work done.”

“We are thrilled to use Knops upholstery.  We have used them for over 30 years and have been impressed with all their work.  We have used them to recover furniture, to design and build new furniture, to make slipcovers.  Their workmanship is excellent.  They work quickly and efficiently.  We can recommend them without reservation.”

“My husband, Duncan Mason and I, Deirdre McHugh highly recommend Knops Upholstery.  We have had the good fortune of knowing Stacy and Victor Rodriguez for two years and they have been a pleasure to know and work with in restoring our antiques.  We have had three Empire chairs recovered in red velvet as well as a Lincoln rocker.  The workmanship is excellent, the choice of color and fabric, perfect.  Victor and Margarita Rodriguez, his mother showed such patience and expertise in locating just the right materials.  Delighted by their skill, quick turnover time and reasonable price, we asked them to upholster our two prized silk damask wing chairs.  Victor found a pattern, more beautiful than what we already had and pointed out his preference of using gold toned damask to warm the area where the chairs belong.  Indeed, the result was phenomenal.  Without our even knowing it, the wood around the base of the chairs was re-stained, and at no extra cost.

We finally decided to have Victor tackle our French, Louis XIV couch and it looks better than when we purchased it.  The double welting that he suggested enhances the delicate lines of the wood surrounding the velvet.  We are delighted by the restoration of so many of our pieces and would be happy to speak with anyone contemplating upholstery work. 
The Rodriguez family has at all times been easy to work with from setting up consultation dates, detailed pricing accounts, to the finished product.  I appreciated the fact that I could contact Stacy by e-mail or Victor on his cell phone, at a moment’s notice.  The date of delivery and the cost have always been accurate and very reasonable. We would not use any other upholstery firm and only regret we have no other pieces to be reupholstered at this time.  It’s been a pleasure to know such professionals as the Rodriguez family.  Thank you, Knops Upholstery!”

“I recently hired Knop's Upholstery to recover two loveseats, which have been in my family for over 60 years.  Needless to say, I have grown quite fond of them, but over the years wear and tear as well as cat scratches have taken their toll.  Once contacted, Victor was at my door with a myriad of sample booklets as well as excellent advice. Since the Christmas holiday was fast approaching I was eager to have the work done ASAP.  Once I had chosen the fabric, the furniture was picked up post haste and after only 2 + weeks returned to me looking fantastic. I am totally delighted with the quality of the work and with the fabric that Victor helped me choose.

The lovely lady who answers the phone and schedules appointments (I don't remember her name) as well as Stacy, who does an excellent job of handling the finances and billing, complete this smoothly and efficiently run family operation.

I heartily recommend Knop's Upholstery for top quality workmanship, efficiency and pleasant service.”

What customers say...
Thank you so much for the fine work you have done for me and my clients over the past several years. Your work is impeccable, my clients love their "new" upholstered pieces, and best of all, I never get a call back about a problem. You have helped me many times to work out design issues with a piece of furniture, and you are true to your word on delivery times. I know when I give a client an expected delivery date; they (and I!) can count on it. For the pieces that have been beautifully reupholstered, and for the newly built custom furniture, your firm is truly professional in every way, and a delight to work with. Again, thank you for your good work.
