Recommendation for Paul, re-upholstery

I bought a wonderful chair from someone leaving Cuenca, and while it is in great shape and very comfortable, the fabric ended up not working for my color scheme. I read that Paul was the guy to go to for recovering, so I emailed him and set up a time for him to come over and show me samples.

He arrived with a ton of fabric samples and waited patiently while I looked through them several times (picking furniture fabric is high-pressure decision making!). Once I decided on my choice, he calculated the price based on the chair in question. I also had several throw pillows that came with the apartment (furnished) that I absolutely loathe, but can't get rid of because they don't belong to me. I asked Paul if he could make new covers for them and he quickly produced some samples of fabrics in the color I was looking for.

He arranged to pick up a 50% deposit the following day (because I stupidly didn't hit the ATM before he came over) and gave me detailed receipts for both projects. His team came to pick up the chair, and he took one of the original cushion covers as a template.

Two weeks later, Paul texted me to let me know everything was ready and set up delivery time. Our chair and cushion covers are gorgeous and I love how they change the room. I no longer have to look at the hideous brown and yellow striped monstrosities that came with the apartment, but I also don't have to store seven large pillows to make room for new ones. Everyone that has come by has commented on how gorgeous the chair is and I will definitely be sending everyone Paul's way should they require similar services. Given the quality of the work and turnaround time, the price was more than fair and a fraction of what such a project would cost in the US.

Attached are photos of the original chair, the newly covered chair with a close up of the beautiful fabric, and the cushion covers he made for me (solid green).
