Upholstery Shop



Maine’s Best Upholstery Shop

“Pistol” Pete Faris came to upholstery by way of technical theater, where he spent 10 years managing the prop shops of major theater companies from New York City to Tacoma Washington. Pistol Pete’s Upholstery was founded in Portland in 2006, and is now located in Yarmouth Maine, right off of Exit 17. We carry a wide selection of fabrics and leathers for indoor, outdoor, marine, and commercial upholstery jobs, and offer furniture pick up and delivery in the greater Portland area. We have experience working with customers on everything from small residential or marine projects, to multi-part commercial jobs. You can see our work around Portland at Hugos, Walters, the Portland Public Library, Empire, and The East Ender, to name a few.

Working with Pete and his team has been fantastic from start to finish. I love how communicative and helpful the team is and also how honest in terms of what might be needed and what could be omitted in order to make recovering six pieces of furniture affordable and fabulous. Pete has a great range of fabrics available and the finished products could not be nicer! I am so, so happy with everything they did for me and I recommend Pete and his team in the highest possible terms!

We just had a leather chair and ottoman re-upholstered by Pistol Pete’s. They did a fantastic job. We are extremely happy with the result and would highly recommend them.
