Blackwood Parker Knoll close.

Blackwood Parker Knoll Chair

We love this clever restoration. Blackwood varnished chair reupholstered in a Printed Velvet fabric by Linwood Fabrics.

We restored and re-varnished the frame in black then reupholstered in this amazing printed velvet. The chair has been shipped to London.

Footstool leather pipe

Footstool piped in leather

I really like this one, it’s a straight forward box footstool. Our customer made her own design by selecting a lovey wool plaid fabric and asking us to pipe the top in leather – a great idea that makes this piece just that little more interesting to look at and touch.

All our reupholstery is bespoke and it’s really delightful to see fresh ideas from our customers that we tailor to their requirements – I wish I could keep most of the pieces we produce 😐

Did you notice the Shepherds castors? If you don’t know Shepherds castors; they allow very smooth movement of furniture on the carpet. Perfect for a footstool to slide around as needed.

Window Seat Green All

Window Seat Cushions

There is something magical about a window seat, you can sit in the cooler area next to the window, almost outside but not. They always remind me of low sill Georgian windows – all very romantic…

Bespoke to fit the window seat area. The fabric is in sage green by Ross Aqua Clean Fabrics selected by the customer. The shape, overhang, piping and depth etc can all be selected and designed by the customer. We will, of course, advise and support to get the correct fit and best long-lasting version for your home. I think this looks really lovely against the colonial blinds and I love the shade of green. And the Aqua Clean fabric can be cleaned by just water and it looks lile linnen.

Howard Chair

A Howard Chair

These are a delightful design. Known as a ‘Howard Chair’ after the original manufacturer in London. There are many variations of this plain but distinctively styled chair. They fit in a modern and a traditional home. We can make a new version to order but this was one we restored.
