I had a couple of leather trim pieces installed by Steve in my VW Mark 5 Golf.  I tried to install them my self,  but I lost the wrestling match.  Steve did a terrific installation,  I am most pleased.  Steve did a complete custom interior about 12 years ago in my S10 pick up truck.  The materials, workmanship and style all have held up in this daily driver.  Their noise insulation material has reduced the noise level in the cab.  I get a lot of compliments when I show up at Cars and Coffee.  Thanks!

I was fortunate to get my Nana's chair. It needed a lot of work. They transformed it beautifully, I am so pleased to have it back.

I went to the marine division of Mac's and Dean was amazing! He was fast, did a great job and reasonable prices.  I went to three other places first and they wouldn't even give me a quote until the job would be completed.  I will definitely be returning!

I had some buttons replaced on my tufted sofa cushions, and Michelle did a great job at a very reasonable price with a super quick turnaround. Very pleased.

Had a minor repair on my newer car console. Picked out a color to match and matched the stitching and look perfectly. A little low tech with a disorganized look to the office, but the work was quality.

I had a great experience here! I was skeptical that anyone would be able to repair my rare red leather Chinese ottoman as it had pretty special stitching on the side that had split, but when I picked it up, I really had to look to see which side they had repaired! I was surprised that they were able to match it so well. Friendly staff, great work and very affordable! I highly recommend their services and would trust them with even the most delicate of projects. Nice job Mac's! More...

incredible work! make sure to stop by for an estimate and then schedule the work. if you can ignore tony's gruff personality it will be a smooth process.

Based a referral by another marine business in Ballard I contacted Mac's Upholstery to fabricate a cover for a propane tank on my boat. Craig, who works alongside Dean in their marine warehouse, made a pattern for my tank and fabricated a very good looking and well designed cover for the tank for exactly the $100 price quote. They are very experienced marine canvas and upholstery professionals and I highly recommend them. More...

Fantastic service. Tony was great to work with. I emailed a picture of the chair that needed the arms reupholstered, and he got back to me right away with a very reasonable price to get the job done. Right on time Miguel showed up at the office to pick up the chair. (I was happy to pay the extra to have the chair picked up and returned.). I thought the chair was going to be returned the next day, but I was pleased to get a call from Tony about 3 hours later saying the chair was done. He said Miguel would be at the office at 2:30 to return the chair. Right at 2:30 Miguel was at the door. The chair looks great, and the craftsmanship is obviously professional. The chair is about 14 years old, and would have been over $1,000 to replace. For a fraction of that (including the delivery), the chair looks like it will be around for many more years. Don't hesitate to do business with Mac's Upholstery. It's a trustworthy business, and really nice people to work with. More...

My bad kitty decided to urinate on one of the couch cushions on my Queen Anne couch. Needless to say, it was ruined. I went to a few upholstery shops to get an estimate and they were all in the $225-$275 range. I checked in with Macs and Michelle quoted me around $130.  They had a deal!  I took the good cushion in and my cushion covers. They did a fantastic job of matching the cushions in depth firmness and fit in the covers and with taxes, it was almost 1/2 of other quotes I received. I highly recommend them for your upholstery needs. More...

I had an enormous water leak and got as much as 2-3 inches of water on the floor when it rained. Mac's found the problem within 30 minutes of dropping the car off, had a very reasonable quote, got the part within 24 hours (1 full day sooner than they had estimated) and had me back on my way  in no time. The staff was very friendly, professional, and honest. I'd use them again in a heartbeat! More...

We first used Macs in 2003 for a large mid-century couch, and again this month to recover 2 mid-century chairs and repair webbing for a MCM love seat. If you are looking for a place to have mid-century modern furniture upholstered this is the place. They have an incredible amount of fabrics to choose from, and many that fit the 1950s era. Upholstery is not cheap - but their attention to detail is hard to find, and well worth the price. They take great pride in their work and it shows.  I would trust them with my most treasured furniture piece. More...

I had a major leak in my sunroof (1990 4Runner) and the inside of my car was soaked for weeks. Brought it in to Mac's and they fixed it quickly. Very reasonable price for the work they did.Warning: beware the mean old man who lurks in the parking lot... he's the landlord, not affiliated with Mac's. You can avoid him by parking on the side of the building where it says "park here for estimates." More...

Mac did a great job on the cushions for my new kitchen nook. Their designer worked with me on fabric choices and had a great eye for what would work.  Although I was promised they would be done by Thanksgiving they were a couple weeks late.  But the quality is great and I have had rave reviews on the work.

A big shout-out to Michelle!  Our dining room chairs were in desparate need of reupholstering.  I threw one in the car and went to a couple of shops in Seattle to get prices and look at fabric.  When I got to Mac's and spent a few minutes talking with Michele, I knew I had found the place.  Not only was the price right, but she took time to consult and her sense of fabric and color were so helpful.  She sent me home with lots of samples, so my husband and I could take our time making our choice. The finished products were delivered on time and done very professionally. More...

My car just had a milestone birthday. It can now buy its own beer! In honor of that, I had some interior work done by Mac's in Ballard. The price was reasonable, the materials are high quality, and it looks great! Tony worked with me as if I were having a major renovation, taking the time to help me pick out the right color, coordinating with my schedule, and overall having remarkable patience (in retrospect, I maybe obsess a bit much over the details). He took the time to give me good advice on how to care for the leather seats so I can make them last longer. When it comes time to do a bigger project, I won't even need to shop around. I know right where to go. More...

Mac's does water leak repair, also. Steve is very thorough and the results are no more water in your car. It doesn't belong in the car, does it? It took 3 days to get the job done, and my 2002 PASSAT WAGON, no longer allows water to get into the car.Excellent work, as i expected based upon the recommendations of the local body shops in the CROWN HILL, BALLARD neighborhood.Drew More...

Awesome experience at Mac's!A gallon of milk spilled in my Jeep Liberty. After trying to clean myself and a enzyme treatment at a local detailer, the smell in my jeep a week later was unbearable! I was referred to Mac's to have my carpet removed, washed and the foam padding replaced. I spoke to Steve, who was super friendly and explained the process and had confidence they could solve the problem. In 2 days, they worked miracles- I was doubtful, but my car is as good as new and they met the price they quoted.  I will absolutely use Mac's again and will happily refer them to anyone in need of upholstery needs. Great experience! More...

Had Mac's fixed most of the seat in my vintage car and the results were outstanding ! They took a pig's ear and made the silk purse out of it! Only gripe is that it cost more than expected , but that was due to the extra work required to get it right , since the seat was falling apart. They are  artisans. More...

Well I guess I had a slightly different experience here. Amazing if they are so bad they have managed to survive since 1948. But speculation aside... I bought a Chev Impala in Spokane (I live in Seattle) because finding one with anti-lock brakes and traction control for a good price was quite the challenge. I got a used Alamo rental car that was one year old and had 26K miles on it. I was a base model car but had the ABS and TC and was only $12K. So I transferred the alloy wheels and cargo net from my old Lumina, got a folding rear seat from a totaled Impala at the salvage yard, then went to Mac's to have a leather package added to the car. I went through a catalogue of many styles to pick from and picked out a set that was specifically for a Chev Impala. I was able to take a sample colors out to the car and see what would match the rest of the interior best. After the ordered leather arrived, Mac's finished the job within a few days and it looked fantastic. The leather was better than what the GM factory puts in Impalas. Mac's also took out the floor carpets to thoroughly clean them to remove the rental car smell and make them look new, which worked well. They could have just talked me into replacing the carpets, but said cleaning them cost less, so I didn't feel like they were trying to squeeze me for extra money at all. They even installed the folding rear seat with an arm rest in the car and got rid of the old fixed position one with no arm rest for me. So for another $1500 (in 2006) I ended up with a great looking car that cost a lot less than a new one with those options. Mac's did a really professional job. Now it is 2010 and I still have the car and the leather is still perfect and so are the carpets. I would go here again for any upholstery work without hesitation. More...
