FR Review:
Oakley is a master of period work. The firm specializes in upholstering 18th- and 19th-century pieces using traditional techniques, such as eight-way, hand-tied coil springs, and materials, such as horsehair, down and jute webbing. The company will also restore and preserve old furniture frames and make furniture from interior designers' specifications. Some say, however, that they must provide very detailed drawings. Owner Jerry Chlopek was trained in Europe, and his excellent craftsmanship distinguishes Oakley from its Chicago-area competitors, according to many loyal clients.

Oakley shares a building with furniture restoration experts, Bernacki & Associates (see review), and with Cinematronix, which creates custom home theaters (see review). It often works with Cinematronix on seating for home theaters and antiques. Clients say Oakley is easy to work with and speedy in comparison with other firms.

Representative Client Comments:
"Their number is the first button on my speed dial." "Respectful and easy to work with." "Can create absolutely anything from a picture."
