☞ BESPOKE: Lore Upholstery in East Harlem

Those getting ready for spring cleaning and decorating for 2014 really should start thinking about reviving some old furniture that might just need a new outlook.  East Harlem's best kept secret is the family-owned Lore Decorators that does all their custom upholstery work on sight. Skip the middle man and go directly to the source to get an old antique couch or chair repaired with your own fabric or a selection that the store provides.

We have had items purchased on eBay for almost nothing shipped directly to Lore and they delivered it  to our door brand new based on fabric we selected previously from the store.  Custom drapes are also a service for those in need.  New York magazine has listed Lore within their "The Best of New York" issue in the past.

Also on the plus side is that going direct will be only about one-third of the price for the same service anywhere else in the city.  Lore is located at 2201 3rd Avenue between 120th and 121st Street. Tel. 212-534-1025. Take the 6 train to 116th St or the 4,5 train to 125th Street.


  1. I have used Lore many times and they do excellent work! Indeed a best kept secret.

  2. Glad to hear positive reviews! I had heard mixed things but it sounds like just bad info!
