Master upholsterer Barry Griffiths career began in the early 1980s as an apprentice for R.W. Toothill. It was whilst with R.W. Toothill that Barry mastered the modern skills and techniques of upholstery.
Today the skills Barry has mastered help to provide a high quality of service for an ever-growing customer base that welcome the work he does. Barry also gained his City and Guilds Qualification at Newcastle College of Technology where he studied upholstery and re-upholstery for 3 years. The course provided a practical understanding of the traditional methods of upholstery.  These techniques are important as an understanding of methods helps with work when dealing with the various antique pieces that come into the workshop.

    A Cintique chair with a family story: This lovely chair was originally purchased when the current owner was born in Newcastle. Some years later the chair lived with the father. Now it has been restored - frame repaired and cleaned down, reupholstered in a blue Linwood Juno Weave fabric - it has returned to the lady in London for another generation.
