A Few Words About Us
TLC Upholstery is a family run business, established in 2002. Run by Trevor and Louise Cooke, hence the name, TLC. Trevor has over 30 years experience in the furniture industry. After completing a 3 year furniture apprenticeship Trevor gained experience as an upholsterer in the office furniture trade in the UK. After 10 years, Trevor decided he would like to gain more experience and moved into the household furniture trade, manufacturing lounge suites. In 2002, Trevor decided to start his own business. TLC Upholstery began as a home based business, which very soon branched out to new designs, creating quality, custom made lounge suites. In 2005 TLC Upholstery started attending various Craft Markets, selling mainly footstools. Now with the ever expanding range of products, TLC Upholstery has found these craft markets to be a great success.
It was at one of these Craft Markets, that Trevor was approached by a representative of an Educational Furniture Supply company, which lead into TLC Upholstery manufacturing over 40 different styles of Ottomans and Chairs for schools and libraries all over Australia and Southern Asia.
In April 2007, TLC Upholstery were successful in registering Sleeper Stoolzzz as a Trade Mark (No. 1133427).
In 2008, TLC Upholstery moved into a Factory complete with the TLC Showroom at 69 Triholm Avenue, Laverton.
December 2016, TLC Upholstery invested in a CNC Routing Machine allowing us to cut all our timber to perfection. This also allowed us to utilise the timber sheets more effectively, which means we are now generating far less waste.
