Ten examples of chaise longue we have restored and reupholstered. The modern chaise longue was first popularised during the 16th century in France, hence the rather lovely name ‘Chaise Longue’ – it always congers up a sophisticated romantic feel. Chaise Longue were created by French furniture craftsmen for the rich to rest without the need to retire to the bedroom. I think I need one.
Here is another example of a completed reupholstery job. A neatly designed oak occasional chair with some wear and patina. We reupholstered as selected by our customer in a peach patterned linen with a coordinating braid.
The chair owner is shipping the chair to Wales.

Parker Knoll Retirement Chair Tartan Moon Wool fabric.
I recall them been old chairs back in the early days – here we are still restoring and reupholstering Parker Knoll.
A 75-year-old Parker Knoll Chair | Awarded as a Retirement Chair at some time for services on the railways. Covered in a lovely Wool Tartan Moon Fabrics. We have reupholstered Parker Knoll chairs and sofas throughout our 30-year history. Note the red pins near the feet – it’s all about the detail.
Just ready to be delivered to its home in Darlington. A plain side chaise longue reupholstered in a lovely Ross fabric self pattern. Similar to a damask with a small pattern.
In a lovely blue fabric, this is a unique style sofa we reupholstered. Seen here just delivered to our customers home.
The curved detailed lines are really sharp on this fantastic sofa, we made arm caps for practice reasons as this soft will be used daily and the addition of the large scatter cushions really sets it off.
It’s a particularly large sofa that the customer has owned for years. The lady loved it could not find a replacement, therefore, had this one restored and reupholstered in Linwood Fabrics ‘Forget Me Not’ fabric which is discontinued now. We made the rather fine looking scatter cushions using the customer supplied fabric. Another one I want to take home 🙂
The shape of this chair is adorable anyway, covered in newspaper it would still look good :). Here we have restored and reupholstered in a modern velvet with a contrasting back panel. Its something I would have not thought of. Our customer did and it looks great and we made a bespoke unique chair.

Some examples of reupholstered and restored antique furniture we have restored.
This glorious chair was hand made by our customers’ Grandfather. Made of solid oak, it was our pleasure to work with it
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Now a matching pair of bespoke pieces for a study. Perfect.

Classic Furniture – The sofa in these photos has been reupholstered by us twice in the last 20 years – still going strong and is truly a Classic.
Our customer sourced and provided the fabric and designed the arm covers with tassels and detail of the matching rope. A wonderfu selection.
Chesterfield Sofa in deep red velour. They never date and good quality versions are designed so they are extremely robust – look great and last a long time.
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.
