About Dela Studios – Upholstery

Dela Studios is a custom upholstery service located in Hamlin Township, Michigan.  After successfully establishing our business in the Kansas City area in 2009 we decided to pursue our dreams and in 2016 relocated to our original home state of Michigan.

We are dedicated to serving our clients with excellence through superior craftsmanship using the finest quality upholstery fabrics and upholstery materials available.  Our commitment to you is that when your furniture enters our studio to be upholstered every detail will receive special attention.  One of our greatest rewards is seeing our client’s reaction when they see their newly upholstered piece of furniture.

A Family Tradition for Three Generations

For over 90 years, the de la Durantaye family has been working in furniture repair and upholstery.  In 1922, Raymond de la Durantaye opened a business he called the Fix-All Shop in Bay City, Michigan. It was the place where anything could be fixed. Raymond (a.k.a. Gramps) would figure out a way to repair anything a customer brought in. Soon, his reputation preceded him having gained his upholstering experience from the ground up at a Grand Rapids, Michigan furniture factory and the small fix-it shop developed into a furniture repair and upholstery business.

Gramps moved his family to Detroit in the 1930′s and established a new business, Crenshaw Upholstering. He taught his sons the art of upholstery and eventually the family business became known as Durantaye & Sons Custom Upholstering. In turn, they taught their sons the skills they acquired from their father. For three generations, the de la Durantaye family has been upholstering furniture using the finest quality materials and the professionalism that was Gramps’ trademark.

Integerity & Workmanship

Gramps placed great value in integrity, hard work and top notch quality.  With this in mind, we started our upholstery business in Olathe with quality workmanship and integrity at the forefront of our business.  Not only does this maintain our grandfather’s legacy and honor our father, it means when you hire Dela Studios to upholster your furniture, you are getting the highest level of quality and service in the area.  No furniture leaves our studio until we consider it “Gramps Approved”.

As the third generation our mission is to continue our family’s legacy here in the Hamlin Township area echoing Gramps’ words, “May we have the pleasure of serving you?”
