Our Story



O’Kelley’s Upholstery and Design is known as Atlanta’s premier upholstery shop. Founded in 1979 by Cecil O’Kelley as a furniture reupholstery business, O’Kelley’s has earned a reputation for excellence over the past 31 years.

Initially located in the heart of Buckhead Village, business demanded a move to a larger facility in Buckhead in the Buckhead Business District on Miami Circle. Today, O'Kelley's is located just up the road off Peachtree Industrial Blvd. in Chamblee, GA.

From Atlanta to Charleston, Savannah and Birmingham, and as far north as Boston, professional designers trust O'Kelley's for superior products and services. Likewise, we are happy to serve individuals with all their furniture reupholstery and custom furniture design needs. The focus in this area of furniture construction has been to build upholstered furniture to suit the creative expectations of the designer and the comfort needs of their customer.

We are open to the public and works with individuals desiring quality reupholstery services at a reasonable price. We are by no means the least expensive, as we do not cut corners. The products we use (and our workmanship) will last longer and therefore are a better value than other reupholstery shops. We also offer custom furniture design and can help you create a one-of-a-kind piece for your home: beds, ottomans, sofas, etc. O'Kelley's also works with many interior designers and furniture designers for their custom needs.


For local individuals in the Atlanta area.


We invite you to come by our shop and tell us about your project ... even bring in your piece if possible. We'll walk you through different fabric options and provide a quote for your job. We can also help to arrange pick-up and delivery of your items if they are too large to move.

For individuals outside the Atlanta area.


Because of O'Kelley's trusted reputation and long-running service record (almost 40 years!), many have discovered O'Kelley's while in Atlanta and have opted to send us their cushions, pillows, or entire furniture pieces for reupholstery. The nominal shipping fees are worth it to those who demand only the finest in time-honored production techniques. Simply call or email us and we'd be happy to talk you through the process.

For designers.


O'Kelley's works hand-in-hand with many designers across the Southeast. Timeliness, quality, and value are the three main reasons we receive so much referral work in the design industry, and we're proud of the many long-lasting professional relationships we have forged with other interior designers.
