Great job by Stephen!
Sofa restored in a timely fashion

Shailesh Bhopatkar, Lexington Ky

In 2021 I brought home two adorable puppies. In May 2022 I bought a brand new loveseat. And the puppies personalized it. It was ruined. I thought I would have to slipcover it or buy a new loveseat. Today Stephen brought me back my brand new sofa. I am thrilled!!

Elizabeth Robinson, Georgetown KY

Stephen did a great job getting an ink pen mark off our sofa. Looks like new! Very professional and concerned about the details. This is the third job (sofa and 2 vehicles) Stephen has done for me and completely satisfied and highly recommend his work.

Thompson Chris, Frankfort, KY 40601

I had the pleasure of working with Stephen for my repair needs recently. He offered AMAZING customer service and was very responsive when discussing procedure and quoting price points! He is VERY detailed-oriented and ensured he took his time with the job. Honestly, I have never been made more comfortable of a process until encountering Stephen. He deserves a 10/10 on everything! I would definitely recommended him to friends and family with similar needs. Thanks a lot Stephen! I appreciate your business and craftsmanship.

Lucretia, KY

I had the best experience with Stephen Bland of Fibrenew. I requested a quote for a 6 yo recliner that needed new filler and foam in the seat and lumbar area. Stephen respond within a day with a quote and we set up the appointment. He came to my home yesterday morning to evaluate the job and returned later that day to pick up the furniture to repair in shop. Stephen returned my chair today and the work was flawless. His customer service is beyond reproach and I would definitely recommend Stephen Bland and Fibrenew for all of my upholstery needs. He and Buddy were a real pleasure to work with. Thank you Stephen !! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Kim Liggett, Lexington, KY

My car driver seat was so worn I thought I would need to replace it. Fibrenew came and repaired it so well that the seat looks brand new now. A great experience and a great price. 10/10 would recommend!

Josiah Ford, Louisville, KY

We are thrilled 1st with the office manager at a high-end Marine dealer who referred us to Stephen Bland of FIBRENEW of Lexington, she set us an appointment to meet with Stephen the next day, upon meeting Stephen I was very pleased with how professional, pleasant, courteous and attentive he was while at the same time he quickly reviewed my needed repair and promptly sent to my email his quote for those repairs, we arranged a mutually convenient day and time for Stephen to come to my home. Stephen arrived in a timely fashion for our appointment and nearly 2 hours later I was thrilled at the amazing repair Stephen had completed, there is absolutely no sign of any flaw or fault ever having been present on my C5 Vette driver's seat, if ever I need such repairs in the future Stephen will be my go to person, he's Awesome!

Mikaela Campbell


Had the pleasure of meeting Stephan Bland today and seeing the results of his work on my friends Italian leather sofa, love seat, chair and ottoman. Looks like it just came off of the showroom floor. New life into a set that was headed to charitable donation. Stephan is kind, easy to work with, totally accommodating and a leader in his craft
Highly recommend him and Fibrenew to you!!

Jerry Fox


Stephen was professional and knowledgeable. My sofa looks incredible and we have a path forward for care and restoration. Thank you!

Sherry Wagner


Did an outstanding job removing ink stains out of my boats white seat. I tried everything possible to remove the stain. Within an hour you couldn't tell the stain had ever existed. Thanks again for your services my friend. Very much appreciate.

Brandon Flowers


Stephen was on time and very respectable and polite. He was able to distinguish the root cause of the issue very quickly and resolved it to my satisfaction.

Thomas Shepherd, Georgetown Kentucky

We were referred to Stephen by a local furniture store when we asked about repairs to a torn leather couch. Stephen got in touch with us right away and was an absolute professional start to finish. I am stunned at the quality of the work and timely turnaround. We will absolutely recommend Fibrenew to everyone and would use them again.

Melanie G, Richmond, KY

I could not be more pleased with the quality of work I received by Stephen with FibreNew. I have a 20 year old leather sofa and chair I felt was hopeless and he repaired both to look new again. He did an excellent job replacing the cushions with new foam. In addition he refurbishing the leather color back to its original and removed creases in the leather to look as good it did the day I bought it. I highly recommend Stephen and FibreNew for any of your leather repair needs. I will use them again in the future.

Tim Landers, KY

Thank you Stephen for excellent care of my “new to me” sectional sofa. I was gifted a sofa from a dog owner and my real estate agent told me just who to call. The couch looks and smells brand new! Not only that, despite weather and equipment challenges, my couch was ready in time for my move in date to my new home! Call Stephen at Fibrenew Bluegrass for a quality job well done! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️


Leah Chandler, Louisville KY

I work in detail @ Northside Family RV where Stephen was called to do a vinyl flooring repair. He allowed me to observe from start to finish and I was amazed. I literally watched the scratches and gashes disappear before my eyes!

Jacque, Lexington, KY

Awesome service and the work is incredible... Highly recommendable!

Keir Lyles


Steven just fixed the drivers seat in my corvette, he did an outstanding job and was very courtesy, I would and am going to recommend him to all my friends.



Great service.
Very satisfied.

Michael Frankrone


Stephen was great. He was on time, very clean, protected my floors with his blanket while he worked on the leather chair and explained the entire process very well.

As far as the actual work, he had to do multiple things to my leather chair to get it right. It took him about 2.5 hours and the end product is like new. We have two of those chairs and one can not tell the difference between them once he was done.

Very satisfied with the work. Thank you.

Sasa Cibula


Stephen was amazing. If you are in need of some work done, do not hesitate to contact him. Professional, courteous and detail oriented. You will not be disappointed.

Christopher Stobaugh


Stephen's Fibrenew company is exemplary. He is prompt and gives excellent service! The job he did on my daughters car was well done. The best part is Stephen's kindness and character. So happy to have met this person.

Whitney Durham


Excellent service and quality. My children decided to markup our leather couch with a sharpie, Stephen was able to dye the leather back to original condition with minimal effort. Very satisfied with his services.

David Sandlin


I had a leather couch, recliner, and foot stool that the leather was showing raw spots. I reached out to Stephen at Fibrenew SE Louisville and he made all items look brand new. I highly recommend this service for any repairs to furniture, autos, boats...basically anything with a seat! Great job and I will use again!

Ken Karlen


Stephen fixed my office chair that had multiple tears in the seat leather. Looks like new! Professional, friendly, and timely service.

Brenda Goforth


Mr. Bland worked on an old family heirloom, antique dinning room set and chairs along with cushions for our sofa. Specifically targeting the details within the furniture. Mr. Bland, with care handled our deceased mother's heirloom as if it was a piece from his own home. In preparation we were extremely pleased and excited to see these pieces come back to life again. There was not a crack nor crease in his work and it looked as if we purchased it brand new. His work is impeccable and gleams with pride. We are so elated and pleased to continue to have and pass down this furniture to our children. Mr. Bland was a very pleasant, fair and honest man taking his time to break down the process for us and giving us a thorough review. We are so very pleased with his work, and will recommend his services to any and everyone in need of the service he provides. Thank you so much Mr. Bland!

Scott & Tionne Ford


Stephen did a great job restoring my two leather sofas and restoring a steering wheel. Thank you very much!

Zuany Nida


Highly recommend!!
I have used Stephen multiple times for car upholstery, home, and office repairs on leather and vinyl. He is extremely easy to deal with and mobile! His quality, communication, and customer service is second to none.
Look no further this guy is the best!!

Woody Howard


I had a leather sectional couch that needed to be refinished with a very quick turnaround. Stephen was able to complete the job within the timeframe needed and personally returned the item. His communication and customer service was excellent. Additionally, the job he completed exceeded my expectations with the couch looking brand new again. I would highly recommend him and his company for any restoration services.

Tolik, Louisville, KY

Stephen renewed our 40 year old leather loveseat and my favorite chair. Sun damage, dog nail scratches, and general aging were almost completely removed without having to stain the leather, which would have resulted in a monotone appearance. Stephen hung in there and applied nine coats to achieve the desired results. The two pieces still retain some character (and memories) but the aged look is subtle. I appreciate the hard work and expertise - and whole heartedly suggest you call him up if you need leather repair. Thanks, Stephen!

Douglas Adolf, Waddy, KY

From the first point of contact Stephen Bland was up front, honest, extremely professional which made it easy to converse with about my project. Stephen took time to explain the Fibrenew process in detail, he assured me that I would love the final product. Stephen was able to explain the process so much, that his assurance convinced me to give him the opportunity to complete other pieces of my interior that was scheduled to be completed by the upholster. His attention to detail was spot on, I could not tell the difference from my sample piece of leather to his Fibrenew color match. Stephen understood my goal of saving as much of the originality on my 1964 Buick Electra as possible, with his help I was able to achieve that goal. If it is one thing I can say about this franchise owner is he completely out did himself and I highly recommend contacting Stephen for your next project.

Tyree williams, Louisville, KY

Stephan Bland was our Fibrenew technican. He was wonderful. He emailed, called, and was prompt with setting an appointment up. He listened to our problems and gave advice on how he could solve them. We have a leather loveseat that now looks almost brand new! And it only took him a few days to complete the job! I would definitely recommend him to anyone! A very nice person, who was a pleasure to meet and work with.


I had family come in for my son‘s graduation party. My living room furniture and area rug needed to be cleaned. Stephen came in and cleaned everything. The rug looked brand new when he was finished! The furniture was spectacular! And everything smelled really good and clean. He was on time, and he did what he said he was going to do. Highly recommend. Five stars!

Shelly Gardner, Shelbyville KY

Thank you so much for the great service and attention to detail for all my repair needs. Stephen will do what he can to make sure your torn or worn leather, vinyl, plastic, even something that you think is gone. Why replace when you can repair at Fibrenew with Stephen? You might not want to replace something that family left you when you can repair and keeps those memories alive everyday. Give 5 ⭐️

Stephen, Shelbyville ky

Stephen is absolutely phenomenal! Customer service second to none quality of work as well.
I would highly recommend him to anyone before you go shopping for a new couch, office chair, office furniture or a new car!!

Woodrow Howard, KY

Thank you!!!!

Bernadette Box, louisville, KY

My husband and I were very pleased with the service, professionalism, and quality of work performed by Mr. Stephen Bland.  He did an awesome job repairing damage to our sofa that occurred during a move.  Should we ever require such service in the future, we will most definitely call Fibrenew and request Mr. Bland.

K Hicks

We have used Stephen with Fibrenew to repair imperfections in 3 of our vehicles and I'm completely blown away at how perfect each repair looks every single time.
I would be a satisfied customer based on his flawless work alone, but it's the extra "Stephen-ness" that comes along with it that make me a cheerleader for life!

Brandon Cerrito, Shelbyville

I had 2 cream colored upholstered dining room chairs that had been worn over the years from holiday events, everyday seating and the cat’s favorite spot for hair balls! I had used a variety of products to clean the seats over the last 2 years and they just progressively got worse! Then I met Stephen Bland and after hearing what he did I asked him to come out at take a look. When he came out I had forgotten that his service is mobile and started cleaning the chairs that day!!! His services were quick and turned out better than I could of imagined. With seeing the fabulous results immediately, I asked him to clean the patio cushions and just on a whim asked if he could also add stuffing to the cushions and to my surprise the answer was YES! His expertise service saved me time and money from not having to shop for new chairs and cushions!! And his friendly, easy going attitude made it a first rate experience!!!!!!

Michelle Marks, Louisville, KY

Stephen did an amazing job repairing some vinyl seats on my boat. He showed up on time, addressed the issues, showed me before/after pics from previous repairs, and then gave me a fair quote. Completed the job on the spot and within 2 hours. The end results are amazing. Highly recommend Stephen for any vinyl repairs.

Steve Yager, Mount Washington, KY

Stephen Bland at Fibernew done a masterful job re-dying my bar stools. They were already in good shape; my wife and I just wanted to change the seat material to a different color to match our new furniture, and the outcome exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Stephen, if you are looking for 5 star results.

Kenyada Saunders, Georgetown, KY

Stephen repaired and color matched our vinyl boat cushion as well as our leather recliner. Excellent work and service. Thank you!

P. Heckman, Louisville, KY 40213

I have a leather chair that had multiple tears and scratches in the seat. Stephen was able to fix it to look new again. It could not have been easier. He came to my house, picked up the chair, and delivered it back when it was complete. You cannot tell it was ever repaired! I will call him again anytime I need restoration.

Brenda Herron, Louisville, KY

Roxanne L, Louisville, KY

We had a 15 year old sectional that was showing some discoloration. We tried to restore it ourselves but it did not work.
We called Stephen and he came out to look at it in 2 days, gave us an estimate on the spot and restored it right then and there.
It looks like new! We are very pleased and will refer Stephen to our family and friends. He is very professional and polite as well!

Cindy, Louisville

For the record, I usually give 2-star and 4-star ratings for things. I try to reserve the 1-star and 5-stars for reviews that truly deserve them. Very well-done, Stephen.

My wife and I (military) purchased a wonderful living room set of leather furniture in Charleroi, back when we were stationed in Belgium. 19 years, 3 kids, 2 cats, 2 dogs, and 7 moves later... what once was easily the nicest furniture in the house, was looking pretty poor, and had us wondering if we should replace it.

In hopes it might still be salvageable, I gave Fibrenew a call and started discussing options with Stephen. I had my doubts... I'm not used to high-traffic items lasting longer than 10-15 years (if that). On hearing what the furniture was and looking at some photos, Stephen assured me it could be restored to new condition. We made plans for pickup and gave him a chance to show what he could do.

These pieces (Couch and two one-seaters) are quite heavy, and constructed with a lot of Ardennes-region solid wood. The couch takes up a very deep footprint, and the one-seaters are nearly the size of typical American love seats once you account for all of the padding and woodwork. Decorative leather side-panels surround them (they're designed to be seen from all sides), and there are a ton of leather trim elements. Stephen definitely had his work cut out for him.

It took some time, and coordinating delivery was a challenge (particularly due to the ice storm), but when the furniture was returned, I was stunned. The leather was impeccably cleaned and restored. Not surprisingly, there is one spot from 17 years ago where our cat had made a deep cut on the arm... treated and sealed very nicely, though you can still tell it is there... but cat's fault, not Stephen's.

I was most surprised by the condition of the front edges of the seat cushions. 19 years left a LOT of wear on them, and I had feared the leather was degraded beyond repair. You can't even tell where the wear patterns were. Amazing job!

If you're contemplating cherished pieces of your own...

1) Color-scheme of the leather was unchanged... restored completely to its original appearance.

2) Wood was completely intact and in original condition. Nothing was broken, chipped, or weakened that I could notice. I assume Stephen's primary focus/expertise is the leather, but I asked him to go over the framework and check/tighten any structural elements that looked in need of attention, which he did.

3) Stephen was very polite, prompt, and thorough communicating with us. He answered all of our questions skillfully, and accurately projected when the job would be finished.

4) The character of the furniture remained what we had fallen in love with 19 years ago. Stephen delivered as promised, and the living room set is once again the best furniture in the house. Thank you so much!

A big shout out to Fibrerenew SE for their amazing work. The driver’s seat of my Mercedes Benz was repaired with great quality and workmanship. Excellent work! Totally recommend it!

YMorph, Louisville, KY

Stephen with Fibernew SE Louisville repaired the driver's seat in the 2010 Lexus RX350 driven by my granddaughter. The seat bottom was in shreds and the back was damaged. Stephen replaced the leather cover on the seat and repaired the damaged back. We were completely satisfied with his work. The price was quite reasonable, and we appreciated the accommodation in scheduling to work with my granddaughter's college schedule.

Steve Thompson, Louisville, KY

Stephen Bland did an awesome job. He was punctual, professional and knowledgeable about the services being provided. The seating in my truck looks completely different. I will definitely use Stephen again.

Jon Hardin, Louisville, Kentucky

Stephen did a great job. He was quick and efficient at repairing a hole in my sofa. You would have to look real close to actually see where the repairs were done.

Paul Newton, Louisville, Ky

I give Fibrenew SE Louisville 5 stars. He repaired top stitching on my sofa. If you didn’t know it had been repaired you would hardly be able to tell. He was very polite, respectful. He was on time. Something you rarely see. Great experience.

Jackie Haney, Louisville, KY40291

Stephen from Fibrenew did really great job. I have added before and after pictures to look at. He came to my home at Shelbyville, KY to repair the left arm rest of my vehicle and you would never even know there was a tear in the leather material now. If I could I would give him more than Five star. He did his work very patiently and helped me to understand how he is going to fix this. Thank you so much....

pranab das


Stephen at Fibrenew was absolutely incredible to work with. Great communication throughout the entire process. He came to my office in Shelbyville, KY to repair an imperfection in the center console of my truck and you would never even know there was a tear in the vinyl material now. Five star service all the way around. Thank you, Stephen!

Brandon Cerrito


Steven did a great job repairing the vinyl on 3 pieces of equipment. He arrived on time and finished the job on time. I'd recommend him to anyone needing repairs. Very professional.
