This company did not replace the dirty under layment in the pieces given them to reup. The stitching was sloppy and there were threads hanging out everywhere.

Besides that the fabric had grease spots on it.

I had to have the whole piece redone by another shop who did the work beautifully

I'd suspect the other positive comments were put there by Cy.

Cons: Felt like I was conned

I've been Cy Winship's customer for 8 years. Over that time he has reupholstered a couch, three chairs, and 10 dining room chairs; guided my design and color selections for 4 rooms in my home; helped me select flooring, paint and fabric; and provided an entirely new design concept for the interior of my home. I have referred 3 relatives and 8 friends and neighbors to Cy, and all have raved about his skills, taste, creativity, kindness and willingness to go the extra mile.

In my experience -- and that of those who I have referred to Cy -- he possesses a rare combination of qualities: he has extraordinary talent in design that he is able to combine with the tastes, interests and (importantly) budgets of his clients, and his personality and communication skills enable him to connect to clients of significant diversity quickly and thoroughly. Examples: he worked with my daughter to suggest design approaches for her first apartment. She had a very limited budget, but Cy's counsel allowed her to make very effective use of that budget, and she now lives in a great space. At the same time, Cy worked with my sister-in-law on interior design for a major reconstruction and remodeling of her large suburban home. Her taste combined with his design skills to make the new home both comfortable and beautiful.

Cy's capabilities and craftmanship are central to his design approach: his upholstery talents and artistry have helped me (and many others) make cost-effective use of existing pieces in new design settings.

Working with Cy is a great experience!

Pros: creative, caring, skilled

I have had the pleasure of working with Cy on several home upholstery projects & design work. He is a consummate professional and his work is outstanding. I have had numerous people comment on the chairs & loveseat he recovered for our home and how impressed they were on the quality of the workmanship. It's amazing to me that this talented designer who already has an enormous television presence still does so much hands on work on an individual level locally. His pricing is commiserate with most other upholsterers in Minneapolis, but the quality you receive is above and beyond.

Pros: outstanding quality, workmanship, great design sense

.

My experience with Cy has been nothing less than stellar - his work on pillows for our living room, curtains for the back bedroom and a reupholstery job for a 1920s settee are amazing - his ability to mix and match fabrics worked wonders for a surprisingly low cost (having used other upholsterers in the cities) Having worked with him for over 6 years, I've learned he has an amazing work ethic and really thinks of the clients first when looking for fabrics and pricing things out. Highly recommended!

Pros: Priced right, amazing quality, great to work with

I have had the displeasure of working with Cy.

My experience ... created curtains my 2 year old could have sewed better. Didn't turn hems (visible from outside deck) (uneven seam at floor)
After 4 months of excuses why he should but can't come fix the problem I received a nasty email stating he was too busy with 5 jobs running, gas is too expensive... I live 15 miles west of Mpls. Ive been congenial til now. I feel it's best to inform others not to contact Cy.
I guess he has no intention of seeing any of his clients more than once.
