About the Owner - Nate Hedwig.

I enjoy a challenge and making things that are a little bit out there and different, or turning something old and run down into something shiny and new.

Upholstery Workshop is owned and operated by Nate Hedwig. I have been a Queenstown local since 2001 after moving here for a winter and then never leaving.

At Upholstery Workshop we pride ourselves on friendly, reliable service from knowledgable staff.  We have a large range of sample fabrics in store to choose from including PVC, vinyl, leather, canvas and foam. So we can find something to suit your needs. We also provide a pick-up and delivery service for those hard to transport items.

We got given these boxes of parts to turn into seats for a 1950’s Bedford truck. Quite the transformation.

It’s been a busy past couple of weeks.
We have done 30 of these dining chairs.
The one on the left is the original we had to match, the middle is what we had delivered to the shop and the right is one we have finished.

These are the jobs we really enjoy.
We turned a pair of worn out race seats into these cool looking jet boat seats.
The customer picked the colour and then we were given almost full creative control to do what we wanted with them.
Rather than a full vinyl back, we wrapped it in carpet to match the boat and make it more durable. Then went crazy on the styling. We’re super happy with how they came out.

Recently we did some work for a 1925 Hudson, but we never got to see the actual car. The customer just sent through these photos. We did the seat and the hood cover, and supplied the vinyl and carpet for him to do the rest of the interior.
