A classicly shaped small turn of century armchair. Fully restored and upholstered in Linwood Omega patterned velvet. Selected by our client now safely delivered to their home in Darlington.
I have seen a number of this style of chairs in auction houses recently. They are usually in extremely bad condition, particularly the frame and springs. This example was in good order when we first started the restoration.
Bent out of shape, creaky, broken frames with popping-out springs etc can be restored – but best buy a structurally sturdy version. Cost at an auction is at an amazingly low price currently, £200- 500 each. Restored, an equivalent value will be in the region of £2000 – 5000 each. And totally unique.
This is a 50-year-old sofa and chair beloved by our customer. We restored and reupholstered in a very similar fabric as requested, a Chatsworth damask. The sofa and chair were located in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, as our customer was relocating to Pickering in North Yorkshire we delivered it there.
Here is another example of a completed reupholstery job. A neatly designed oak occasional chair with some wear and patina. We reupholstered as selected by our customer in a peach patterned linen with a coordinating braid.
The chair owner is shipping the chair to Wales.

Thanks for your visit David and for using BJ Upholstery in your reupholstery video. It was all rather exciting and lovely to see the small chair on its restoration and reupholstery journey. Learn more about the Football Shirt Chair Jo mentioned. Contact us with any questions.
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.
A lovely old rocking chair we reupholstered for a customer.
Our customer told us that is was her grandparents rocking chair that she inherited and it holds many special memories. The sensitive and skilled work done keeps all the character and personality of the chair while breathing new life into it. It looks beautiful!
What a wonderful story – thank you so much for sharing.
