You can design a super corner filler or occasional chair. You can design the style, fabric, and trim. Add a button back or plain, add a cushion or change the wood colour. Some completed upholstery examples are shown below.
Reupholstered for our customer in Darlington, we think the colour selection has really reinvented this chair. See the before photo.
Reupholstered in quality Scottish leather.
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.

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 classicly shaped small turn of century armchair. Fully restored and upholstered in Linwood Omega patterned velvet. Selected by our client now safely delivered to their home in Darlington.
I have seen a number of this style of chairs in auction houses recently. They are usually in extremely bad condition, particularly the frame and springs. This example was in good order when we first started the restoration.
Bent out of shape, creaky, broken frames with popping-out springs etc can be restored – but best buy a structurally sturdy version. Cost at an auction is at an amazingly low price currently, £200- 500 each. Restored, an equivalent value will be in the region of £2000 – 5000 each. And totally unique.
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.

A pair of matching rotating tub chairs. The chairs rotate on a metal circular base. Really interesting contemporary chairs.
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.

Thanks to our customer for sending a photograph of the chair in its new home. It looks great, the Chatsworth Fabric blends nicely with the wood on the chair what an inviting place to sit.
It’s difficult with blue, it can look cold. This matching pair of probably 1950s occasional chairs look tasteful in a french blue, certainly not even cool. An inviting smart and stylish pair of chairs. Indeed this is Ross Aquaclean fabric a fabric you can clean with just water.
