Our family history as upholsterers goes back a little further than 1965 to my great grandfather Frank Ellis Boothe. Frank started upholstering in 1942, opening his own shop in downtown, Newport News, working side by side, with a local mattress maker. Frank eventually moved his family and business to Poquoson where he continued working as an upholsterer for his remaining years.
Robert Glenn Boothe Sr. grew up in his fathers shop tearing down furniture. In 1965 Robert and Mary Boothe founded Boothe’s Son Upholstering Co. To date they have upholstered over 10,000 pieces of furniture for customers ranging from Northern Virginia to North Carolina and beyond.
