Fibrenew Customer Reviews

5 Stars
“I am so pleased with the results of the leather refinishing on my couch and loveseat. My furniture was older (>12 years Flex steel) but certainly worth a try at rejuvenation. (Particularly after pricing new furniture.) Matt was prompt to answer my inquiry by phone, at coming to my home to give me a quotation for his service, professional in disassembly and reassembly of my furniture, and truthfully advised me about the service he could provide to me. Well worth the price for the end result! Color and finish is wonderful! The leather has a good feel and I was prepared for the potential of an odor the new finish. There was NO ODOR! A very pleasant surprise! I truly feel as if I have a new couch and loveseat! Looking forward to enjoying it for a few more years. I would recommend Matt of Fibrenew East Louisville and his team without reservation.”
