Denver Upholstery Design Expands into Vacant Lot

Denver Upholstery Design is working with new Colfax  business, Abbey Tavern, on its seating.Steve Volz and his wife Megan spent the Great Recession starting an upholstery business in his garage at 11th Avenue and Jersey Street.

Today, Denver Upholstery Design has moved to its third location on Colfax Avenue to accommodate explosive growth. The firm provides custom upholstery services and repair as well as furniture fabrication. It serves all Denver hospitals and most mountain casinos. They’re currently designing new seats for the Abbey Tavern, scheduled to open on Colfax and Filbert this fall.

“When I quit my job and opened the business, I was pretty scared,” says Volz. “But I’ve learned that if you do what you say you’re going to do, on time, the business will come. I grew up in Park Hill and am glad to expand my business on Colfax.”

The new location, at 5520 East Colfax (on Holly), is a former used car sales lot that has been vacant for years. A building is being renovated into a new design center and fabric sales store. The space will also showcase custom made furniture by a network of local designers, including new pieces made of reclaimed wood.

“There’s nothing like it in Denver,” says Volz. “We invite all our neighbors to come by and see the activity—and bring your old furniture for a brand new look!” They’ll be open at the end of September.
