Check Recliner Chair in P&S Balmoral Duck Egg Blue.

A recliner chair we delivered to Darlington today. The fabric is P&S Balmoral Duck Egg Blue Check.

We can reupholster any chair in, almost, any fabric and what a difference a new fresh modern fabric can make. As you can see in this example.

Leather and tweed wood chair

Leather and Fabric

This chair now lives in Northallerton. We reupholstered in a Linwood Fabrics weave. Arms and wings are upholstered burgundy leather. A clever combination.

Nursing Chair Linwood Velvet

Nursing Chair

How amazing does this nursing chair look? Reupholstered in a Linwood fabric called Omega. The fabric is a printed velvet that looks quite stunning and has a lovely silky feel. A one-off creation on a quality chair.

Tub Chair

Pair of Tub Chairs

Local to us, we restored and reupholstered this pair of chairs in a Ross Aquaclean Fabric in grey tweed.

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

Barker sofa

A Modern Take on a Chesterfield Sofa.

I recognised this sofa as soon as I saw it. Originally sold through Barker and Stonehouse furniture shop back in the 1980s. It’s a quality piece of classic furniture, basically a relaxed oversized Chesterfields sofa without the deep buttons. Originally retailed in a Kilim fabric that was slightly rough to the touch, a bit like a Kilim rug, they were super cool, stylish, massive and expensive.

We have reupholstered at least two in the last year, therefore, we know the quality of the frame. This example, our customer purchased for £50 🙂 Now it looks like a few thousand pounds. Stunning.

Before and After

A Before and After Chair

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.

PS – You don’t just buy your soft furnishings do you? Design and build to your exact requirements.

Occasional 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.

Grey Sofa Reupholstered

Sofa Set In Grey Ross Fabric

How lovely it was to come down this a.m and see her sitting in the place she had occupied since 1970. We are quite overwhelmed. An absolutely incredible transformation. Barry’s experience is second to none. The frame adjustments have given a new comfort and her new dress is stunning. Jo from our first meeting, I knew we were in good hands. Your warmth and lovely manner is very special. Thank you.

Dining Chair Leather Close

Leather Dining Chairs

These dining chairs were reupholstered in white grained leather as requested by the customer. Previously upholstered in the cloth – see the original image below. We use only the finest Scottish leather, it looks amazing, feels fantastic and smells really lovely. The quality of these hides is way better than most manufactured leather furniture. The leather is 4mm thick so will take generations of use. They were boardroom chairs owned by the customer. We transformed into white for the dining room.

At first glance, you may be forgiven for thinking this is just an old dated dining chair. Look at the frame, particularly the curved and jointed front curve of the arms, the sheen of the varnish. This is a quality designer chair. Reupholstered in a high-grade Scottish leather it took two hides to complete the set of six. Now an upgraded design piece that will sit well in a modern or contemporary home.

Chair Originally From Barker & Stonehouse Chair

This is a fifteen your old good quality chair from Barker & Stonehouse that our customer wanted to replace but he could not find a suitable sized, styled and comfortable chair. So they came to us to have it restored and reupholstered. This is a great option – you can select a new fabric and even adjust the seating and detail. I think the orange fabric is a great choice.

Victorian Sofa

Victorian deep button sofa.

I have been looking forward to sharing this item. A very rare and on-trend genuine Victorian sofa. It looks luscious in the customers’ own fabric – a rich port red. Unknown to most is the craftsmanship inside the sofa. Been a Victorian piece of a very high quality the frame was is strengthened by cast-iron bars. We renewed all the base webbing to be as tight as steel – the sofa can take it. And it looks very special.
