wing chair

Wing Chair

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.

Uplift, repair, and return service​.

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.

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 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.

Knole Sofa

Knoll Sofa

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.

1960s Sofa

1960s Retro

1960’s retro sofa with two matching chairs. Upholstered in a blue Wemyss fabric. All the wood was stripped back and waxed. More fabrics to browse on our fabrics page. Our customer bought the sofa and chair set some years ago second hand. Stored it for a long time, then decided to have it restored and reupholstered. We are glad to see a historic design icon saved to serve for many years in the future. A side note: If you look for a new equivalent to this style of sofa and of this bespoke quality you will need some thousands of pounds. This is a restored original.

Thank you to our customer to allow a few photos at delivery – they look stunning. Now living in the West End of Darlington.

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.

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.
