Born and raised in the Netherlands, Ivar has always been creative: as a teenager he would fix his own bicycle or would be helping his dad in the yard. After being employed in a wide range of industries and businesses, in 1996 he decided to study business in Chicago as an international student. Appropriately, after that he managed a marketing department for 7 years.

Creative juices were flowing in the office, and in the evening and weekends Ivar fixed up the house he lived in. All the trades: ceramic tile, roofing and windows, electric, drywall and plumbing. three consecutive homes in the seven years.

Ivar was introduced to the upholstery restoration industry in 2007 as he started his mobile business in Chicago. After a few years he had built a client base, both residential and commercial, and hired an assistant. Life was good and... in 2018 the move was made to California, starting fresh.

Since 2019 Ivar’s expertise in the upholstery field is available in the OC area and he takes great joy on both the crafting/ creative side with upholsteries as well as enjoys customer contact.

Besides working his business, in his personal time Ivar paints, sculpts, and improves his living space, and enjoys activities such as tennis, hiking, swimming, and walking on the beach under the Californian sun.
