Advanced Matching & Custom Color


We formulate a unique color to match your leather or vinyl. This formula is kept on file in case you ever need to re-order. Customization is recommended for bright primary or secondary colors, auto and RV interiors.

8 oz. is the order minimum and a separate cost.

Note: Send us a sample of the material (see below). We will contact you to collect payment after we’ve received your swatch. Your color is formulated within 1-2 business days after receipt of funds.

Matching fees are non-refundable. We do not accept returns on Custom Colors unless we find fault in the product or match to the sample provided. Please read our return policy.

Find a Sample

The bigger the better. Color matches will not be guaranteed on samples smaller than 2″ x 3″ size.

A sample can be any of the following:

  • Cushion case
  • Swatch of the original leather or vinyl (found underneath cushions, along inseams, or stapled to the frame)
  • Paint chip from a hardware store
  • Fuse panel cover or headrest from a vehicle (wrap carefully to protect from a box cutter)
  • Piece of drapery or flatware

We match the sample you provide us. Swatches taken from under cushions or on the frame often do not resemble their faded counterparts, which means our Custom Color may not either, and you may have to refinish the entire piece. In this instance, you may prefer going with a less expensive stock option.

Photographs of your pieces are helpful in determining quantity of finish needed, but we cannot mix a color to a photograph.

Send a Sample

Please fill out and include the Custom Color Request Form. If you mail a physical component such as a headrest, cushion case, etc. we recommend insuring the item with the freight carrier in the event it is lost or damaged.

    From when I sent in the color sample to receiving the color took about one week. I got right to work and finished the leather loveseat and ottoman in about 6 hours - VERY quick and easy to apply. We now have a brand new couch and ottoman, replacing the old eyesores.

    Amazing results!
    We were changing black vinyl booths in good condition to our custom ‘space blue’ color. We were recommended applying a primer coat first. They looked pretty nice even with 2 coats of primer, but of course not the color we needed. It only took 2 coats of our custom color on top with a few touch ups. I am blown away how incredible they look!! It saved us thousands of dollars! This product opens up a ton of future opportunities! LOVE!!!

    It has taken me almost a year to use rub and restore on my turquoise sofa.  No idea why now!  It is perfect and easy to use. Thank you so much for mixing the exact colour.

    Happy Customer
    Thank you so much, the French blue custom color is a perfect match and the chairs turned out awesome, no one would know these oldies but goodies have endured over 50 years of loving use.

    I’m sure this is no surprise to you, but the result of recoloring our leather sofa is impressive.   It looks like new, ready to rock with the re-do of our media room, also very worn and tired.

    Thank you so much for walking me through your process.
    It’s rare to find a product that lives up to the claims, and yours exceeds your promise.

    I am thrilled with the way my sofa and chair turned out. I was able to complete both of them in one day. The green color was a perfect match. Thank you so much for all of your help. All of the instructions were perfectly clear.

    I thought I needed to buy a new sofa but I am now happy to keep my old one.

    Your quick response to all of my questions was appreciated and my order was here within two days.

    I will be telling all my friends about your company.

    excellent company!!!
    I bought a white sectional after I bought a recliner. The recliner was only six months old but it didn't match the sectional, so I ordered ivory and did a color change, but it was way too white. I sent a piece from the bottom of the sectional for a color match and it was almostma perfect match.
    Besides having the best customer service around, they really know their stuff.

    We couldn’t be more pleased. The color is an exact match, it was easy to apply using the direction. Our loveseat looks like new again. I am so glad we found Rub and Restore.

    We are totally amazed
    As bad as our sectional looked, we are totally amazed at the transformation. We rescued two puppies over 18 months ago and their rough playhouse destroyed the finish on our sectional. We were so embarrassed of the sectional we were thinking of buying a new set until I found Rubnrestore. We were skeptical at first, I even put off doing it for a few weeks thinking it wouldn’t look that good. The transformation is amazing, it looks like new! You saved us $5000 in replacement cost. I highly recommend Rubnrestore.

    We are delighted with the results of our Rub 'n Restore materials.  Our furniture looks totally renewed and the process was easy with your detailed explanations. After 7 years of use and abuse, the surface looks new again. Thank you for your assistance.

    WOW!!!!!!!  The footrest and front edge of the cushion of the unit on the left is the one that was redone.  It took me less than an hour and is perfect.  Thank you very much!!!!
