Universal’s special order upholstery adds dining chairs and counter stools

, Jan. 2024 – From the living room to the bedroom and now the dining room, Universal Furniture is expanding its special order upholstery capabilities in its Conover facility.

“Customers continue to tell us they want more cover options in dining chairs,” said Universal Furniture President Sean O’Connor. “We compiled our best-selling styles across modern and traditional designs, and created a domestic program that offers upholstered dining chairs and stools with the same craftsmanship as our special order sofas and chairs.”


The dining chair program offers a total of seven chair styles and four counter stools, all bench-made at its Conover facility. Counter stools and five chair styles come in a selection of over 400 fabrics along with 50 leather choices. The two slipcover styles are available in fabric only. These dining chairs are available now to interior designers and retailers, and leave the warehouse in just six to eight weeks, aligning with Universal’s standard lead time for upholstered items.

In addition to body fabric, customers can customize finishes. The dining chairs include seven finish choices for wooden legs, and two metal finishes: stainless steel and aged satin pewter. Counter stools are available in two metal finishes, nickel and white satin bronze. The wide selection of fabrics includes velvets, linens, cottons, and performance fabrics, all in a rainbow of colorways and patterns.
