FR Review:
Jose Quintana's soft goods can transform an entire room, shifting the space from Old World to contemporary - or vice versa - without the renovation cost. Each one-of-a-kind piece or window treatment exemplifies Quintana's flair and resourcefulness; the fabric may vary with the budget, but what's underneath is consistent quality. His work is made for longevity, the outcome of his dedication to the craft and the client.

Although Quintana started his career working under other upholsterers, his skills on the production line demonstrated a clear mastering of traditional techniques. Thanks to word of mouth among the trade, Alex Papachristidis pulled Quintana from the shadows of freelancing, had him craft a headboard for the Kips Bay Show House, and landed him on the front cover of the New York Times' 'Art' section, almost overnight. To follow up his debut, Quintana opened his own company in 2000, and the phone hasn't stopped ringing since.

As busy as Quintana and his team of eighteen are, clients report that daily communication is normal and expected - at least a few phone calls, if not a meeting. Even if he has to outsource the labor for frames or repairs, Quintana accepts any project related to upholstery, and takes full accountability when handing over the finished piece. Whether one pillow or furniture for an entire apartment, standard cotton or the finest silk, any job is accepted with gratitude and executed with precision. This company leaves customers believing that "you don't need to have a million dollars to make it look like a million dollars."

Representative Client Comments:
"He is our one and only upholsterer." "Everything is authentic and hand-made. Never looks off the rack or mass produced." "Our careers evolved together. At this point we share the same vision and even our own language." "He will take on projects of any scope, but always delivers the highest quality." "Lifetime relationships with the best designers in the city." "Customer satisfaction is his main concern. Jose is determined to make the client happy and will redo a project three times if that's what it takes." "Jose is a genuinely nice person, we are all very fond of him." "Jose is deeply honest. He never tries to cover himself up and holds himself accountable for any mishap."
