1930s Mustard Sofa

Authentic 1930s Sofa, Shell Back Sofa

I may use this word too often, ‘stunning’ and I may say this too often, ‘I want to take it home!’ Both apply here. We restored this 1930s sofa and reupholstered in a mustard Linwood Omega Italian Velvet. The quality, detail and styling are exquisite.

Our customer looked for this exact style for some time, originally made in Denmark, she found it on eBay and shipped it to us. It’s art you can sit on.

Loveseat in Gold

A wonderful love seat, we reupholstered for our customer in Yellow rich Gold, how amazing it looks in the bay window. Its got a 1930s look and style to it. The shape and curve of the loveseat are enough, a patterned fabric will detract from the style. This plain fabric choice shows off the shape and boosts its appeal with the beautiful gold velvet.

1930’s Oak Rocking Chair

We are delighted to restore this sprung rocking chair.

Our customer loved the chair but it was past its best. To buy a new chair or restore the old was the question. It fits nicely in the conservatory, the customer liked the style so she decided to instruct us to restore the wood back to its original colour, re-web (under seat springing) and reupholster with all new foam padding.

The result is a fine quality bespoke restored chair.

We used Ross fabric as selected and think it works really well.

Note the all new webbing and fabric under cushion sleeve as it was originally.

1930​s Chair

The strong shape and sturdy lines of this chair made me fall in love with it. Our customer chose a beautiful Linwood houndstooth fabric with a gentle stone and lichen colourway. The build quality of this era of furniture manufacturer is impeccable – again, sturdy and strong quality. The equivalent, if you could buy one new, would be over £5000. And it’s great to restore rather than make new – a delight. Matching sofa below.

Office Chair For Home Study

Rather clever what our customer did with this office chair for her study.

Instead of the typical plain or blue (boring) fabric, she selected this high-quality deco style fabric to create a more soothing to look at and stylish office study chair.

We also reupholstered a matching chest footstool.

1930’s Fluted Back sofa

We often talk here about the value of buying older quality furniture and restoring it to your style and taste.

This 1930’s Fluted back sofa is a perfect example. With a matching pair of chairs.

Our customer selected the combination of carved and plain high-quality velore to create a stunning one-off showpiece that you can sit on and look at to enjoy.  And of course, if you were to order a new version of this quality the total investment will be about double.
