This wing chair, a fireside wing-back chair, is a turn of the century classic. The inside back panel you can see is a coordinating pattern fabric. The fabric is the original fabric of the chair our customer wanted to retain as it is a reminder of her late husband who loved the chair.
Linwood omega velvet fabric is what we chose to compliment the original fabric. The customer is delighted with the result and so are we – it looks just lovely.

Well, it’s not really. This is the first Kingston chair (on the left) we reupholstered as part of a group of six. The one on the right is, of course, one of the chairs before we *reupholstered it and on the left is the freshly reupholstered Kingston chair. We hope you like this strong demonstration of what we produce. It’s not often we get the chance to show a ‘before and after’ photograph.
*When we reupholstery an item of furniture we don’t always explain that the internals is also fixed, strengthened, re-foamed, wrapped, and re-sprung as required before we reupholster.
A classic victorian chaise lounge we reupholstered for our customer. Our customer sourced the fabric, it looks stunning.
We have restored and reupholstered countless chaise lounges over the years – here are some other Chaise Lounge examples Often they are in a bad state, the frames are delicate due to the fine design and long stretch between the legs and the coil springs will need replacing or re-tieing. All are repairable to make your Chaise Lounge as it was new.

Information: The original Knole Settee (also known as the Knole Sofa) is a couch chair that was made in the 17th century, probably around 1640. It is housed at ‘Knole’ in Kent, a house owned by the Sackville-West family since 1605 but now in the care of the National Trust.
This very pretty and delicate chair was stored by the customer for years in the garage with the intention to have it restored in the future. Our customer decided to have it reupholstered when she moved house (So we collected it from one address and delivered it to another).
It is a Victorian chair; we cleaned and waxed the wood, restored the internals and reupholstered it in the customer’s own fabric. Learn more about reupholstery fabrics
Look at the beautiful curve at the top of the back, the pleated arm fronts and the delicate braid edging – just lovely style and quality design.
A lovely Victorian Chaise Lounge. We have reupholstered some 100s of chaise lounge. Mostly Victorian and Georgian and some modern versions, they were particularly popular in Victorian days. This example is unusual as it has a metal frame. A total refurbishment and reupholster, we think she looks delightful in blue and we love the curved form of the front edge. The fabric is a Linwood Italian velvet in a teal blue. Delivered to our customer in Darlington.
Where would you find such a quality classic like this in modern retail shops? – I’m in love.
1960’s retro sofa with two matching chairs. Upholstered in a blue Wemyss fabric. All the wood was stripped back and waxed. More fabrics to browse on our fabrics page. Our customer bought the sofa and chair set some years ago second hand. Stored it for a long time, then decided to have it restored and reupholstered. We are glad to see a historic design icon saved to serve for many years in the future. A side note: If you look for a new equivalent to this style of sofa and of this bespoke quality you will need some thousands of pounds. This is a restored original.
Thank you to our customer to allow a few photos at delivery – they look stunning. Now living in the West End of Darlington.
