A delightful pair of Georgian Dining Chairs
Reupholstered in a Ross weave.
A customer chose a really fresh choice of fabric colour-way with a matching braid. These classics look beautiful in any home setting, modern or traditional. Not only beautifully made but they are surprisingly heavy. Try picking one up, you’ll get a bit of a shock! Oh and i love the colours!
An antique footstool reupholstered in leather to match fireside chair.
We recently restored an antique fireside chair in this leather hide. There was just enough to cover this footstool also – so here it is about completed waiting on the bench for the finishing touches of the upholstery round headed pins in each corner. See the ‘Rolls Royce’ corner stitch in the detailed photo – Lovely!
Put your feet up!
Its not just ‘re-covering’
This is restoration. As you can see in the photos below; we strip the furniture back and remove the, in this case 200 year old, padding and reconstruct using modern variations of horse hair and modern wadding. Checking and fixing the frame then we re-fit/replace and tie-in with twine the coil springs.
Modern furniture is not built this way. And this type of furniture was an expensive luxury in its day, therefor it was built to a very high standard. The comfort is something else.
We have a 1904 chair in our shop – come and sit in it, you wont want to leave – remember we close at 5!
Antique furniture is amazing value currently
Restored and reupholstered in a modern fabric creates a classic that will last for a very long time. A lovely antique button back chair restored and reupholstered in a light soft velvet – gorgeous!
One of the most lovely chairs I have seen for a while.
Leather Button Back Chair
It was in bad condition but the frame structure was good and most importantly the owner found it so very comfortable. Indeed we had to wait till after a comfortable Christmas to collect and start the restoration.
Leather is not always leather
Many of us have modern leather chairs – we repair and reupholster a lot of them. Sometimes the ‘leather’ is not actually leather though. Modern factory produced leather furniture can sometimes be a treatment cover to look, feels and smell like leather but its not. Sometimes the leather is only on the parts you touch and sometimes it is very thin rolled leather.
Genuine Leather Tanned Hide
The ‘leather tanned hide’ we use is about 1/4 cm thick, tanned from a genuine hide and will last as long as Sherlock Holmes leather library chair.
Good Quality Furniture Will Last and Last….
Buy quality furniture and it will last a lifetime, actually better value that buying new. We reupholstered this fine Wesley and Barrell chair which was purchased over 20 years ago – maybe more. Wesley-Barrell, a British company since 1895 makes traditional and contemporary furniture. Restored and reupholstered furniture is returned to our customers in ‘as new’ condition, to last another 20 years – now that is good value!
A nursing chair is a chair that’s comfortable when nursing an infant, set low with a deep seat.
In Victorian times the nursing chair was a low seated partially upholstered chair, comfortable and easy to move to where best and warmest, often by the low fire in days of old. We find them often from old houses that ‘back in the day’ actually had a nursery.
This chair form was particularly popular in England and found primarily in upper class homes. The types of wood most frequently used were oak, rosewood or walnut,this example is fully upholstered. Often passed down through the family, a nursing chair can hold those lovely memories of nursing the child in the middle of the night.
Always a magical chair and now used mostly as a bedroom occasional chair or dressing table chair or something to throw clothes on! Always pretty and a popular restoration.
