Where can I find fabric/upholstery material for furniture in Central Switzerland

Here is a not-before-asked question....I would be most grateful for any pointers!

I am looking for a store where I can purchase fabric for upholstery. There used to be one in Lucerne in the Neu Stadt (sort of behind Hotel Astoria), but now it has turned into an evening dress shop!

I have tried to look online in German and English, using all of the German words that I could think of that might describe what I am looking for. So far, I have used: Stoff (fabric), Polstermöbel; Möbelbezug.

Have a good weekend!

Kristina

Hi Kristina. I am sure you can find fabric/ upholstery material at Laura Ashley. I have seen one of the stores in Zurich. Other than that, you could try Ikea.ch , they sell material for various things as well. Good luck!

Re: Where can I find fabric/upholstery material for furniture in Central Switzerland

I'm reviving this thread because I'm also looking for a store in the Zurich/Uster area that has a decent selection of upholstery fabric. I'm particularly looking for a brown chenille or soft ultra-suede type fabric.

Does anyone know of such a store(s)?

Re: Where can I find fabric/upholstery material for furniture in Central Switzerland

Have a look at the Creasphere website www.creasphere.com

The one in Peseux Neuchatel is great. There is one in Wadesnwill - if that is near enough? On the site - click on 'Filialen' to see the map with shop location. They do both dressmaking and furnishings materials, and have Vogue and Burda patterns too.

(@ Meloncollie - after my Bac, all I wanted to do was travel the world. But my parents insisted I did a trilingual PA course, so I could work along the way. 6 months at the Ecole de Commerce Neuchatel, short-hand, English and German, accounting ... and of course, typing. Never lost it ... lol. Mind you I didn't get far- London, Stoke-on-Trent and Leicester, wow! )

Re: Where can I find fabric/upholstery material for furniture in Central Switzerland

I *think* this place is still in Uster:
http://www.creasphere.com/index.php?id=20

It's been years since I was there last, but back then they had a limited selection of upholstery fabrics. (The Wadenswil one has some upholstery fabrics, but last time I was there - maybe a year ago - they didn't have any of the colors or fabric types I wanted. (I was looking for something William Morris-ish, in a substantial natural fabric - not to be found.)

There is also Modesa on Löwenstr in Zürich - again, the selection is limited:
http://www.modesa.ch/de_site.php?sit...ich&logo=logo1

But I've never found what I consider to be a really good home decor fabric shop here. If you are looking for something other than the usual... Milan. Or France.


(ETA: You type faster than I do, Odile. )

This one is not in Zug but if you have a car it is in easy reach:

http://www.haas-shopping.ch/

The shop is huge and there is a lot of choice. They even sew things for you for a very low price. I bought all my curtains in there and I every time I need fabric or gadgets I always return. Also, they have a very large price range for the fabrics.

Just to give you a head's up before you see the estimations on reupholstery in Switzerland that you will receive--they will be screamingly high. Like "don't bother, just buy a new couch high".

I needed a white couch reupholstered and I got three estimates from reupholsterers in Lausanne. They were 6, 8, and 10 THOUSAND francs.

Honey, I think I set a new land speed record on my way to rent a steam cleaner.

Re: Where can I find fabric/upholstery material for furniture in Central Switzerland

For anyone fancing some DIY upholstering, I'm selling 6m of new upholtery fabric (width 140cm) in colour "stone," which is a light beige with some greyish tones. The fabric is brand new, selling because the colour doesn't suit me and I was too late for returning it. CHF50

here's a picture, or you can come see the fabric for yourself in Zurich Kreis 4:

Hi Kristina,
You could try Les Tissus Colbert in Hegibachplatz or in Wollishofen ZH.
They have beautiful fabrics and reasonable prices

Re: Where can I find fabric/upholstery material for furniture in Central Switzerland

Just throwing this out there...But I am an upholsterer.

Attached are a few before and after examples of some of the more technical things I've done. If you have the materials, I can handle the labor for sure...but I wont pick your fabric out! Very reasonable rates (compared to the known market at least).

If anyone has any questions, just let me know.

Hi!
I'll bring this up! I need to upholster a headboard. Ttamasle, do you still do it? Otherwise, does anyone know a good one and as cheap as possible in Zug?

Thanks!!
