A nice pair of two-seater sofas we reupholstered. The Linwood Moleskin fabric is quite lovely to look at and touch. The pair of Moroccan-style sofas make a neat social sofa seating area. We are a Linwood Fabric stockist Our Fabrics Page
I don’t think we need any words to describe this chaise lounge. The colour choice is the key to the look of this piece of furniture. See how the green velvet draws out the light highlights of the wood.
The chaise lounge was reupholstered for our customer in Thirsk, North Yorkshire and fully restored covered in Linwood Omega velvet. The lady is getting married on Saturday and will sit on this for photographs. What a wonderful idea.
I adore this very strong-designed chair. Our customer selected genuine leather to replace the original leather and I think it was a good choice. We only use high-quality leather hides and it shows really well on this chair. It will last for another 100 years I am quite certain.
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.
A nice example of a modern knole style sofa in Linwood Omega velvet print. The black sofa is already in place. We added new large scatter cushions in the Omega print to complement the newly upholstered sofa.
When your living room looks like this, would you ever go out?
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.
Here is something a little different. We reupholstered a relatively recent Chesterfield sofa in a sunflower gold velour. The chesterfield was probably manufactured in the 1980s, so it’s not ancient like some we have restored. The dimensions are good, a deep seat and a slightly higher back. It was bespoke restored to go in our customers guest cottage/chill-out area at the home in the Cotswolds.

Thank you Gill for sending the photos of the sofa in its new rather lovely new home.
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.
