Bespoke upholstery restoration. Our customer saved this amazing 17th-century Italian genre sofa and two chairs. She designed the frame color change to gold and the button back shield panel along with her own fabric. Wonderful!
Nothing wrong with the ‘old style red vinyl seating’ but this is rather refreshing – our customer had an upmarket vision for her pub and it looks lovely – who’d want to go home!
The hurdle often can be the price. It costs more to reupholster say a Next Interiors or Laura Ashley chair than it does to buy a new one. The great thing about the likes of Next Interiors or Laura Ashley is that they are ‘on-trend’ and the fabrics used are very lovely to look at. The negative is that they are made to a price and probably mass produced in China or India – nothing wrong with that as it gives us a great deal – but they are made to a price and engineered to last just a few years with average use.
For value for money and a piece of furniture that will last much longer your better off buying an older quality chair and investing in a restoration of your design.
Here is an example of a fairly standard traditional wingback chair restored and updated with an ‘on-trend’ fabric. Costs a bit more, take a little more time to instigate but made to your style using British craftsmen and quality fabrics. There is no other like it!
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.
Ready to serve and look stylish in any home for another 100 years
We restore antique furniture as originally built using tie-in coil springs and modernised wadding with rubberised ‘horse hair’. So the result is a classic handmade piece of historic furniture you can use every day and will last far longer than a modern version. I’m in love!
WHAT IS AQUACLEAN?
Aquaclean technology is a revolutionary fabric treatment that allows you to clean stains using water only. This provides you with simple fabric maintenance in the minimum amount of time.
Aquaclean helps to remove the majority of household stains (wine, ink, sauce, fat, mud, chocolate, cream, etc.) making life easier and giving you more time for the more important things.
HOW DOES AQUACLEAN WORK?
AquacleanTechnology is an advanced fabric protector for upholstery of all kinds. It’s a treatment that covers every fiber with an invisible molecular layer that prevents dirt from penetrating the fabric.

Reupholstered in a delightful blue fabric provided by our customer.
Restored and reupholstered in a classic Linwood fabric.
Upholstered in our customer’s own fabric.
I always have a footstool on my house. They make sitting and chatting with a cuppa really comfortable as you rest your feet and you can place the tea tray there too.
This example has a lift-lid to store games, magazines and any other clutter you may have to quickly clear the room – X-Box controllers mostly in my house:)
No feet-up on this one please 🙂
Thank you Ann!
This one is dark teak framed chair with a heavy rubberised and foam seat pad which is very firm to sit on but extremely comfortable for all sizes and weights – adults and children alike.
A super quality chair that is part of a ten-set we reupholstered in a beige weave durable fabric for a long dinner service!
Isn’t she lovely!
“I am thrilled with the result, they are wonderful. I have ordered new blinds and am looking for “pieces” to finish dressing the room.
I would thank you all for your friendliness and professional attitude.
I would have no problem recommending you to anyone thinking of reupholstering furniture.”
