Spotlight: T's Upholstery

In this "Spotlight" feature, we'll feature one of our local residents, businesses or other community member. We hope this will give you an idea of the wonderful range of people and places you'll find when you visit Lower Lawrenceville.

Our first "Spotlight" features T's Upholstery Studio. T's Upholstery Studio draws in visitors from around the region looking for the best in custom upholstery and more. Inside their beautiful space, you'll have the opportunity to browse plentiful cases, shelves and walls of upholstery and other fabrics as well as a carefully chosen selection of gifts; small, mostly vintage furniture and other goods.
