I don’t think we need any words to describe this chaise lounge. The colour choice is the key to the look of this piece of furniture. See how the green velvet draws out the light highlights of the wood.
The chaise lounge was reupholstered for our customer in Thirsk, North Yorkshire and fully restored covered in Linwood Omega velvet. The lady is getting married on Saturday and will sit on this for photographs. What a wonderful idea.
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.
This wing chair, a fireside wing-back chair, is a turn of the century classic. The inside back panel you can see is a coordinating pattern fabric. The fabric is the original fabric of the chair our customer wanted to retain as it is a reminder of her late husband who loved the chair.
Linwood omega velvet fabric is what we chose to compliment the original fabric. The customer is delighted with the result and so are we – it looks just lovely.
Repairs. All types of repairs. Our Uplift, repair, and return service will fix the 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 £600
This standard service came from in the past collecting a sofa for repair and then collecting it again later for further repairs. Realise that it 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 investigation we found the cause of the ripped platform was sagging springs. So we replace the serpentine springs.
Additions can be new bespoke foam seat cushions, fibre back cushions, replacement legs and new seat cases. New feather inner cases to order.
A nice example of a modern knole style sofa in Linwood Omega velvet print. The black sofa is already in place. We added new large scatter cushions in the Omega print to complement the newly upholstered sofa.
When your living room looks like this, would you ever go out?
Information: The original Knole Settee (also known as the Knole Sofa) is a couch chair that was made in the 17th century, probably around 1640. It is housed at ‘Knole’ in Kent, a house owned by the Sackville-West family since 1605 but now in the care of the National Trust.
This very pretty and delicate chair was stored by the customer for years in the garage with the intention to have it restored in the future. Our customer decided to have it reupholstered when she moved house (So we collected it from one address and delivered it to another).
It is a Victorian chair; we cleaned and waxed the wood, restored the internals and reupholstered it in the customer’s own fabric. Learn more about reupholstery fabrics
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 lovely Victorian Chaise Lounge. We have reupholstered some 100s of chaise lounge. Mostly Victorian and Georgian and some modern versions, they were particularly popular in Victorian days. This example is unusual as it has a metal frame. A total refurbishment and reupholster, we think she looks delightful in blue and we love the curved form of the front edge. The fabric is a Linwood Italian velvet in a teal blue. Delivered to our customer in Darlington.
Where would you find such a quality classic like this in modern retail shops? – I’m in love.
National Service | A classic Chesterfield sofa reupholstered in customers’ own provided fabric. The fabric is a delightful cream velvet with a rather lovely wacky patterned fabric for the seat cushions. Heading back to Gloucester soon – Customer collecting. A pleasure to work with.
