They tend to be upholstered in sombre colours. Look what you can do to a traditional dining chair with a little flair.
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.

Two very interesting and lovely chairs we reupholstered in flags. Stars and Stripes and the Union Jack. The best photo is the close up of the lion arm – see below. You may also be interested to see a chair we reupholstered in football shirts.
Some examples of reupholstered and restored antique furniture we have restored.
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.
Full restoration of a lovely Edwardian antique chair. Upholstered in a deep blue fabric by Ross of Leeds in crushed velvet.
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.
Reupholstered Parker Knoll Rocking Chair. It is 50 years old and still going strong. A delightful retro everlasting chair that rocks.
We love this clever restoration. Blackwood varnished chair reupholstered in a Printed Velvet fabric by Linwood Fabrics.
We restored and re-varnished the frame in black then reupholstered in this amazing printed velvet. The chair has been shipped to London.
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.
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.
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
Additions can be new bespoke foam seat cushions, fibre back cushions, replacement legs and new seat cases. New feather inner cases to order.
An outstanding pair of classic sofas. In steel grey Linwood Italian velvet.
Its a really well-proportioned pair of sofas reupholstered in Linwood velvet with wool contrast piping.
Parker Knoll made this style of chair famous. Wingback chairs have been made for hundreds of years – the wing to shelter you from draughts and to rest your head. Our customer selected a lovely wool mix plaid tartan and asked us to self pipe the edges.
It looks really elegant and styling, now updated and more fitting to a contemporary or traditional home.
A chair like this is a valuable asset to any family and it may live in a number of rooms in the future. Very lovely.
In a Linwood damask weave.
And delivered to the customers home where it looked even better.
A pair of classic Knoll Sofa in Italian Velvet.
We had a little debate recently on how to spell ‘Knole’ when referring to a Knole Sofa. With a little help from the Internet, we confirmed the correct spelling and decided to share some history – you can view the original Knole sofa in Knole in Kent.
The Knole sofa was made in the 17th century. Originally used not as a comfortable sofa but as a formal throne on which the monarch would have
To identify a Knole sofa it usually has exposed wooden finials at the rear corner tops. The arms are sides and are of the same height as the back. The side arms are tied to the sofa back by means of heavy decorative braid, often with an elaborate tassel.
In addition to this I have a theory that the arms could be lowered to make a tempory bed. All said and done they always look regal.
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.
The strong shape and sturdy lines of this chair made me fall in love with it. Our customer chose a beautiful Linwood houndstooth fabric with a gentle stone and lichen colourway. The build quality of this era of furniture manufacturer is impeccable – again, sturdy and strong quality. The equivalent, if you could buy one new, would be over £5000. And it’s great to restore rather than make new – a delight. Matching sofa below.
