FR Review:
Known by others in the trade as "the master," Fred Karl has taught 54 apprentices how to create upholstery the "correct way." Karl learned from his father, who was trained in Germany and started the family business in 1926 in Greenwich Village. After studying architecture at Pratt, Karl started working with his father in 1968.

Remarkably, Karl has over 300 clients a year with only about two on staff. Karl is said to be obsessive about overseeing every detail in his 1,200-square-foot workshop. Many fine dealers and Sotheby's count on Karl's fastidiousness. Everything is done by hand with tools that fit into a little overnight bag.

Representative Client Comments:
"This is the top of the class in Connecticut." "Karl is the ultimate in personalized and knowledgeable service." "You not only receive a piece of incredible furniture but also an education working with Karl." "I would trust him with the finest antique."
