FR Review:
Despite its Massachusetts address, McLaughlin Upholstering Company is considered by a majority of Florida-focused interior designers to be “an invaluable upholstery resource.” Especially considering the many New York-based interior designers doing projects in Southeast Florida, it would be unwise to overlook the company dubbed the “Mercedes-Benz of upholstering.” Founded in 1889, it's a third-generation, family-owned manufacturer of custom, high-end upholstered home furnishings. Company CEO Kevin McLaughlin, now 50 years old, took over the business at the tender age of 20 and grew up absorbing generations of experience in hand-made craftsmanship. According to sources, the result is a company that “understands how things should fit and seat” and that consistently supplies its customers with products that are comfortable, of the highest quality, and durable.

McLaughlin maintains a 5,000 square foot showroom in Boston and a 3,000 square foot showroom in New York. Although the company possesses a historical archive of more than 5,000 patterned models, 90 percent of the pieces the firm produces are custom made-to-order. Supported by a “skilled and meticulous staff” of 23, McLaughlin handcrafts each piece working closely with designers, from the frame on up, to ensure the perfect fit.

Sources say, “prices are high, but the quality is there.” On average, McLaughlin’s projects range from $50,000 to $500,000. The company can handle everything from a single piece to an entire house. Standard turnaround time is 12 to 14 weeks, but if you’re willing to tack on another 20 percent to the price tag, faster timetables can be accommodated. One must have patience, though, because McLaughlin does have a waiting list of at least three months.

Representative Client Comments:
"Kevin is one of the most personable guys you'll ever meet." "Quality, beauty, service and a good value for the investment." "They are very professional, make you feel comfortable, and their work is amazing." "If I ever have a question about a piece, Kevin gets back to me within 24-hours." "Incredibly flexible - going from traditional to contemporary - meeting any need." "Thinks outside the box to develop solutions." "The generations of knowledge is invaluable."
