Upholstery and Furniture Recommendations

Post New Topic

Hi,

Three questions. I am trying to refresh an old house and am looking for some help.

1. Is there an upholsterer in Tobago?
2. Is there is a modern-style furniture store in Trinidad? If not, does anyone know any furniture stores that aren't too expensive?
3. I might ship some things from the USA. Any recommendations for shipping companies?

thanks!
Laura

My friend here has nice furniture and I think she said she bought it all at a place called Signature? Google it and see if that exists. Another friend recommended an upholsterer here in Trinidad and here is the contact:662-0855 Gopaul Upholstry and I am about to have them come out to look at some chairs to reupholster. Maybe you can call them to ask for a recommendation in Tobago?

Actually one little store here I really like which has beautiful wood furniture (rustic style or shabby chic) is called Con Brio- more pricey but nice. It is brought over by her mom from India (similar to Mexican furniture) and you can see what her mom has and make an order to bring over what you want if she happens to be in India.
Another popular shop is called Mi Casa. Other than that I would say do bring it here with you, along with most things!

Thinking I may ship furniture as well. Does anyone have a quote on that cost? Moving from Washington DC, US.

You will need to find a shipping company from your end that ships to Trinidad. What you need in Trinidad is a Broker to help you clear your crate/container/barrel etc. thru customs. It's hard to find a good reliable one, some like bribes...

You need to figure out what you are shipping, build a crate for it and measure the dimensions. The pricing will be the weight and the dimensions.
