Lets do this a little different.

 

A note from Upholstrei founder, Reioni

If you’re a furniture enthusiast, vintage lover and conscious consumer then you’ve found your home. Welcome!

I'm Reioni (pronounced Ray-o-ni) or Rei ☼ for short, a furniture upholsterer based on Awabakal land in Newcastle, NSW. This here business of mine is committed to diverting furniture from landfill, championing transparency in the furniture industry and creating a new future for our world.

There’s no greater feeling for me than to have revived what already exists. To create something that will be cherished again. To make something that will be loved and not discarded. 

I am deeply influenced by life in the slow lane with an emphasis on using creativity and fun to keeping our minds and homes uniquely ours.

My commitment to the planet ensures that every Upholstrei piece will last the test of time. Read more about my ethos.

 

Working with me

I undertake a small number of bespoke furniture upholstery projects for designers and collectors throughout the year on an application basis. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BESPOKE SERVICE IS FULLY BOOKED
FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2021.

I also offer small drops of furniture to shop which have been lovingly brought back to life using my hands and the skills I have built over years refining my craft.
