About Us

Queen Anne Upholstery and Refinishing combines the excellence of old-world, classic craftsmanship with innovative, modern techniques and services you can count on. We are proud to be family-owned and -operated.

In 1936, Queen Anne Upholstery started out restoring one-of- a-kind, high-end furnishings for Seattle’s wealthiest and most discerning private residences.

In 1984, Robert Emtage purchased Ballard Refinishers and two years later purchased Queen Anne Upholstery. In the early 1990’s, Robert’s son Seth Emtage took over the helm and began expanding the business. In 2012, Ballard Refinishers and Queen Anne Upholstery merged into one – to be called Queen Anne Upholstery & Refinishing.

Over the last several decades, Queen Anne Upholstery & Refinishing and its commercial division, the QA Group, have become the industry leader in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

Founded in 2011, QA Group is a full service Custom Commercial Furniture and Refinishing Company. We serve all major commercial markets, including hospitality, hotels, architects, designers, government, marine, healthcare, health and fitness centers, senior living centers, and educational markets.

Today, QA Group is the largest booth manufacturer in the Northwest with over 75,000 square foot factory.


Every Piece of Furniture Has a Story

The restoration and re-upholstery of furniture are necessary investments in the continued endurance of your beloved pieces.

  • Replacing the fabric
  • New padding and/or cushions
  • Re-webbing the sagging springs
  • Completely rebuilding the upholstery foundation (springs, webbing, padding)
  • Frame issues: repairs or modifications, refinishing or mold mitigation


Reupholstering provides several benefits that make it preferable to buying new furniture. We’ll examine it to ensure that reupholstery is a viable option and discuss your vision for your piece. Our showrooms have thousands of fabric samples to choose from, but we can also custom-order something if you don’t see the perfect one.

Custom upholstery is all about choosing details to create something that’s uniquely yours. Our expert designers will discuss your project with you and show you all the material options available.
