Ljubomir opened Star Upholstery in 1971 and grew his business as a recognized custom upholsterer. He trained his son Samuel to learn the upholstery trade starting when Sam was just 10 years old. Sam soon decided he would follow in his father’s footsteps and become a master upholsterer. He married and settled in northern New Jersey, where he worked exclusively with the prestigious interior designers in Manhattan, New York. Eventually, in 1989 he opened Creative Custom Upholstery
, which is currently the oldest full-service custom fabric and upholstery shop in the Oakland, NJ area.
