Isabel is the best at what she does. I’ve used Gamino Decor to upholster numerous sofas, chairs, benches, etc. for not only myself, but clients. She does amazing work and is very meticulous. She has also made drapes and some pretty intricate pillows and cornice boxes for me, all of which came out beautifully. I would definitely recommend using her. Not to mention she is just a great person to work with.

I had inherited a set of silk, triple-lined window treatments from a friend who decided to remodel his bedroom after only 16 months. They were like new but too long and not—in the case of one of my windows—wide enough. Isabel re-purposed all to fit new lengths and widths by deconstructing and re-building a set of new draperies for my bedroom. For a second bedroom, I provided her with 18 yards of new silk fabric and she created new draperies with lining. Every piece, when finished, fit perfectly as measured (with her detailed instructions) and the end result is really beautiful and exactly what I’d hoped for. I waited 14 years to put beautiful draperies in my two bedrooms and worried they wouldn’t be what I’d imagined. Wrong! Isabel is a pro and knows her stuff. She has never even been to my home and she was able to guide the process along to finish by being able to imagine what I’d explained and described. Her prices were more than fair. She’s not high nor low in pricing of her work. She’s fair and does beautiful, quality work along the way. I am thrilled with the results! I’m very “particular“ (some say “picky“) and might have been a little more maintenance than most of her clients and all the work was done over the span of 12 months as I’d been distracted with “life“ events which delayed my involvement. Isabel patiently worked with my schedule and seemed to know when and when not to gently prod me along. No PotteryBarn or Crate&Barrel window treatments for my house. No comparison to the quality and attention to detail you get with a local business owner and artisan like Isabel who cares for the product they provide. Next? Some pillows and maybe recovering an old leather sofa with fabric. Thanks Isabel!

I had two mid-century chairs upholstered. Isabel Gamino was delightful to work with. Her selection of fabric was perfect and the price so reasonable chairs look fantastic. I would gladly recommend this firm to everyone looking for truly good work at a reasonable price and with a quick turn around.

Wow, Isabel and her team are fantastic! They rebuilt a foam cushion that came with a six-year-old high-end designer sofa with complex button stitching. A single cushion on a long sofa with buttons (plus a thick, delicate white fabric) is difficult. I never liked the original cushion — too soft — so the folks at Gamino removed the complicated stitching, built an entirely new cushion that’s 1000 times better than the original, and re-stitched immaculately. And super fast! Sofa looks brand new but much more comfortable. Super highly recommended.
