Family Team Creates Unique and Quality Furniture

Hi! We're the Hillyard's and we are the owners of Blue Chair Upholstery! We are thrilled to have you stop by our Etsy shop and would love to make you something amazing!


1. Kevin does all the upholstery.

Every bit of your piece is handmade by Kevin, a professional upholsterer and crafter with over 15 years of experience. You don’t have to wonder who is working on your piece after we design it, and we didn't just take a class and are practicing on your piece. You work with just us through the whole process and you're in good hands - we're professionals 😉.

2. You’re supporting small business.

Your purchase doesn’t go into a big corporation, but directly to our family. This is how we make a living and you make it possible! As a result – we love you! You get a personal and one-on-one connection with real people through the whole process. You are never just a number or a sale to us, you are a treasured client and friend 💜.

3. It’s good for the environment & good for you. 🌱

Up-cycled furniture is a fantastic way to reduce, repurpose, and recycle – without sacrificing quality or style. We even have recycled fabric options available.

We can also make any piece completely organic and chemical free (organic latex foam, organic fabric, all natural milk paint, etc.), which is good for you and for the world you live in!

We package your completed work of art in recycled cardboard and reused pallets – with the boxes custom designed to your piece to eliminate unnecessary waste and give the maximum amount of protection.

Our shop is also solar powered. ☀️

4. You’re getting something uniquely you.

You won’t find our pieces in a big box store, or in any store for that matter! You’ll be getting something custom-made just for you! Your piece isn’t made in a factory, or shipped from China. Every bit of it is hand-crafted by a skilled artisan. Even with the same design, no two pieces are exactly alike. Which is why you're looking on Etsy anyway, right?

In addition, you get personal and individual attention to create your dream piece. Sarah will walk you through each step and work with you to design something that will be just what you’re looking for.

5. The sky is the limit!

Whatever you are looking for – we can make it. If you can dream it, we can do it! Get something functional, durable and without all the harmful chemicals. Get something sensational and conversation-starting. Get something that will be a work of art in your home for years to come.

6. You’re getting something top quality.

Handmade, by a skilled professional, with the best materials, every time.

We can find you the perfect vintage frame to up-cycle, or we can build from scratch. And you don't have to choose from a set of pre-fab options - we can build frames exactly the way you want, to any specifications.

7. You’re doing good. 👊

A portion of our proceeds go to charities, including making custom chairs that are donated to charity auctions or built for non-profit children’s housing organizations.


Kevin is the upholsterer. He has over 15 years of experience in a huge variety of areas and has done upholstery work for hotels, student housing, designers, grandma’s antiques, etc. and has done work in Park City, Jackson Hole, New Zealand and Australia. Kevin loves working with his hands and seeing the progress in a piece as he works. He's thrilled to have made a career out of something he loves to do. Each piece reflects his attention to detail, his craftsmanship, and his love for what he is doing.

Sarah is the designer and the - everything else! She excels in finding new styles and combinations that can be either classic, or break the mold. She handles all of the customer service, runs our Etsy shop, finds all the fabrics, takes care of content and PR, and designs our pieces - often working closely with clients. She loves fabric days with Kevin and finding unique vintage pieces.

We have 3 little girls who love to pitch in. They are often with us when we’re running business errands and have their own little work area in our Utah shop.

We are so grateful to get to do what we love as a family!

Pieces ship internationally through LTL (less than truckload) Freight Shipment. Since our items are larger and more bulky, this ensures high quality and safe delivery of your item, while keeping costs minimal.

Smaller items ship via FedEx or UPS.

Please send us your shipping address upon ordering. Residential shipping is included on the listed price, but if you could have it shipped to a commercial address it would be $25 cheaper. A lift gate is also available for $25 extra, though the vast majority of our pieces are under 100 lbs.
