Beachley said no time frame has been set to begin the demonstrations and classes, but they are a part of the plan.
He said his family's 120-year-old furniture company deals primarily with interior designers along the East Coast, but, like every company, wants to grow.
Large American furniture factories are starting to target the interior design industry for business to help their companies grow. That shift has affected companies such as Beachley Furniture, which works largely with those interior designers, he said.
"We want to continue to grow as a company," Beachley said.
To do that, the company looked at the skills and talents of its employees and came up with the reupholstery concept.
"The (reupholstery) business is going to grow tremendously. With the big push for 'green,' people are tired of filling up landfills with old sofas," and want to refurbish them instead, said Wolf, who has been reupholstering furniture for 25 years in addition to his work at Beachley Furniture.
Beachley Furniture, which has had its headquarters at 227 N. Prospect St. for 100 years, converted a room in its neighboring building - the former Goodwill building - for the reupholstery service.
Wolf said it took workers about two months to set up shop in the 1,900-square-foot room.
On this day, worker Mandy Wallace was using a staple gun to fasten fabric to a chair while worker Gebreamlak Kahsay ripped old fabric from another chair.
Wolf said they were in the process of reupholstering 21 pieces of furniture for a designer in Maine.
"Our goal is to become the biggest reupholstery shop on the East Coast," Wolf said.
The company is charging between $650 and $700 to reupholster a couch and about $150 to reupholster a footstool, Wolf said.
He said that the company promises a four-week turnaround for its reupholstery jobs.
Wolf, who was trained to upholster furniture in Hickory, N.C., said the company will train workers who want to learn the trade.
"A big part of it is the sewing. Sewing across the United States is a dying art," he said. "Sewers are valuable. The upholsterers are only as good as the guys and girls who cut and sew in front of them."
Wallace learned how to reupholster while working in the props department of an Indianapolis theater.
"This is what I really enjoy doing," she said.
Wolf said the company's reupholstery service is also able to draw from the employees in the main building if they need help to finish a large order.
The most rewarding part of the job is seeing a torn piece of furniture transform into a finished piece, Wolf said.
"It's involved, but very rewarding," he said.
