The Stickley Difference
Engineered For Comfort
Fully Mitered, Fully Lined Skirts
The legendary comfort of Stickley Fine Upholstery is achieved by Marshall Unit coil springs over a sinuous spring foundation, a construction feature rarely seen today. Unlike the simple foam used by others, the muslin-covered springs of a Marshall Unit will not pocket or sag with use, ensuring luxurious comfort and consistent back support
The intricate picture frame seam at each corner of a Stickley fully mitered skirt eliminates extra layers of fabric and allows it to drape freely. Stickley skirts are fully lined so that you will never see staples or ragged edges beneath a Stickley skirt. Even these hidden areas are to be as clean and neatly tailored as the surfaces you look at every day.
Center or Flow Matched
8-Way Hand Knotted Construction
Center Matching is used for fabrics with a dominant center motif where the placement of a fabric’s motif is in the center of each seat and back cushion. All multiple piece sectionals are center matched.
The artisans at Stickley Fine Upholstery still secure each spring with 8 separate hand-tied knots (rather than simple loops) of high quality tying twine. This old-world process takes twice as long, but the results will last a lifetime.
Flow Matching allows the pattern to “flow”, both horizontally and vertically through fabric placement across the surface of the piece. Flow matching requires the highest degree of skill and patience.
A Proud Legacy
Most Stickley frames are made from 5/4 kiln dried maple with joints that are double doweled for maximum durability.
For over 100 years the Stickley shopmark has signified a commitment to the highest levels of craftsmanship. It can be found on every piece of Stickley Fine Upholstery.
Skirted pieces are fitted with adjustable glides that allow the skirt height to be adapted to varying carpet thicknesses, as well as to hardwood floors.
