Uplift, repair, and return service​.

Repairs.
All types of repairs. Our Uplift, repair, and return service will fix most common problems like the broken frame, replace springs and repair the under-seat platform. Ask for a specific quote. Prices include repair parts but may require additional parts like new bespoke foams or sprung units – please ask for a quote.  The uplift and repair service is £400.

This standard service came from in the past collecting a sofa for repair then collecting it again later for further repairs. Realising that is is far more cost effective to uplift repair and refurbish a sofa all in one go.

What is covered in the price

The uplift and return delivery to your home. Check and make good the frame, springs, webbing and any other issues like ripped platform.

Every job is different. Usually a sofa will come into the workshop for one repair item, while it is there we check and repair all as stated above included in the price.

An Example

A customer contacted us to repair a ripped platform (the fabric liner under the seat cushions). We suggested the Uplift, repair, and return service​. On investigation we found the cause of the ripped platform was sagging springs. So we replaces the serpentime springs.

Additions can be new bespoke foam seat cushions, fibre back cushions, replacement legs and new seat cases. New feather inner cases to order.

Colico chair front

Chair in Calico Fabric

Calico is a base fabric usually found under loose cover chairs and sofas.

Here we repaired the chair and re-foamed the body before reupholstering in a fresh calico cover. The customer will now fit back on the loose covers.

A very delightful small Knole Sofa

Small Knoll Sofa

This is quite a rare Knole Sofa – I’ve never seen one of this size and it is quite unique in that the styling is squared. Possibly a 1930’s bespoke made to order piece. Great to fit our modern homes with timeless elegance.

Cintique chairs restored including wood frame

Cintique restoration specialists.
Cintique have been designing and manufacturing high quality, comfortable chairs and sofas since 1908.

We are delighted to deliver back to our customer this lovely pair of Cintique chairs that were restored and reupholstered as per the customer specification.

The frame was worn and scratched after some 40 years of use so the customer decided on a full re-varnish of the frames in addition to a full reupholstery restoration- the detailed result below.

It’s so nice to see a bespoke restoration come through the workshop.

One of our favorites; Duresta sofas and chairs often visit our workshop.

Duresta has been established for 80 years, we appreciate the quality construction and care to detail.

We are Duresta repair specialists and recently replaced all arm fabric and facing that was a favourite cat clawing post. Fully deconstructed and replaced with the original fabric to as-new.

Duresta Arm

Indeed we can reduce the frame size on all sofas – we reduced a Duresta three seater sofa to exactly fit a bay window recently.

Replacement Cushion Foams

Replacing cushion foams on your sofa/chair can bring it back to life, make your furniture look better and more comfortable.

Replacement, cushion, foams.

New Foam inners - completed

Foam cut to size

All our replacement cushions are made to order in our workshop, bespoke to each case and your preferences.  We fit the replacement foams correctly to your cushion cases and can collect and deliver if required.  The replacement foams are fire retardant and come with a  fibre wrap and a stockinette outer for a soft touch.

Pricing

Depending on the size and shape the price for an average 26″ x 23″ x 6″ is in the region of £65 each. A large two seater sofa pair of seat foams tends to be about £185 – less if we can.  Please contact us for an accurate price – remember to include dimensions and your location if you require collection and delivery.  Our prices include correct fitting to the case and disposal of the old foams.
