When we made the move from Durban to Johannesburg, one of the things I was most concerned about was finding an accomplished upholsterer. In Durbs I had the amazing Suneal who treated me like family, and produced great quality work at a competitive price. I was really worried that I wouldn’t be able to match his exacting standard – that is until the lovely Levinia, introduced me to Dexterous Dawood!
Based in Westdene, Dawood operates out of a small shop, which doesn’t look like much, but the magic he creates there immediately washes away any misgivings you might have about the location! Like Suneal, Dawood’s prices are reasonable, but dare I say it, I think he may be even more skilful, turning furniture that looks like it belongs on the top of a rubbish heap into contemporary masterpieces!
If you’re ever in need of any upholstery work, please don’t hesitate to give Dawood a shout. He may not always deliver on time (the downfall of many a craftsman!), but when your new armchair or sofa arrives, I promise you, you won’t begrudge him those few extra days!
