A modern chair restored and reupholstered in Ross fabrics.
The hurdle often can be the price. It costs more to reupholster say a Next Interiors or Laura Ashley chair than it does to buy a new one. The great thing about the likes of Next Interiors or Laura Ashley is that they are ‘on-trend’ and the fabrics used are very lovely to look at. The negative is that they are made to a price and probably mass produced in China or India – nothing wrong with that as it gives us a great deal – but they are made to a price and engineered to last just a few years with average use.
For value for money and a piece of furniture that will last much longer your better off buying an older quality chair and investing in a restoration of your design.
Here is an example of a fairly standard traditional wingback chair restored and updated with an ‘on-trend’ fabric. Costs a bit more, take a little more time to instigate but made to your style using British craftsmen and quality fabrics. There is no other like it!
This one is dark teak framed chair with a heavy rubberised and foam seat pad which is very firm to sit on but extremely comfortable for all sizes and weights – adults and children alike.
A super quality chair that is part of a ten-set we reupholstered in a beige weave durable fabric for a long dinner service!
Customers own fabric. Tidies up two kids bedroom chairs – looks cool!
Interesting this chair as it has a low back rail with a high back foam cushion. The back cushion fits behind the seat foam. Possibly a Ikea designed chair.
“I am thrilled with the result, they are wonderful. I have ordered new blinds and am looking for “pieces” to finish dressing the room.
I would thank you all for your friendliness and professional attitude.
I would have no problem recommending you to anyone thinking of reupholstering furniture.”

A customer chose a really fresh choice of fabric colour-way with a matching braid. These classics look beautiful in any home setting, modern or traditional. Not only beautifully made but they are surprisingly heavy. Try picking one up, you’ll get a bit of a shock! Oh and i love the colours!
Reupholstered in a stylish woven fabric.
If you have good quality solid frame conservatory furniture, its worth reupholstering or in most cases simply recovering the cushions in a modern up to date fabric. We can also replace or re-wrap the fibre back cushions and foam seat cushions.
Fabric used on mass produced conservatory furniture often is cotton based, thin and made to a cost. The sun of course eventually breaks it down and your left with a good frame.
An option is to custom make a bespoke replacement with an upholstery grade quality fabric.
Not only is this a cost effective way to build a quality bespoke product, it also means you don’t have to shop for (often inferior) replacement – you keep the furniture that you know and know it fits.
This example was recovered in a stunning Linwood fabric that really suits the style of room.
When Jo delivered the reupholstered cushions the room was not quite finished but I promised I would send photographs so please find these attached. I am thrilled with the result, they are wonderful. I have ordered new blinds and am looking for “pieces” to finish dressing the room. I would thank you all for your friendliness and professional attitude.
I would have no problem recommending you to anyone thinking of reupholstering furniture.
Best wishes, Ida.
PS just waiting for warm weather to use the cushion on wrought iron garden seat!
An old saying that is new to me ‘Never cast a clout till May is out’ rings true today as we wake up to snow, a day after we put together our Spring window.
Edwardian chair fully restored and upholstered in fabric supplied by customer.
Our customer purchased this set of a Three Seater Sofa and a Love-seat some 12 years ago, the fabric was tiring and a change of colour was required.
Originally upholstered in a light beige now restored and reupholstered in light grey chenille fabric.
