We had the pleasure of working on a 1960s sofa that was inherited by our customer from his grandmother. We re-made the seat cushions with new foams and gave it a fresh new look by changing the original stretchy orange fabric to a nice cream Ross Fabrics Aquaclean. It’s amazing how a simple change in colour can make such a big difference! The cream fabric makes a beautiful contrast against the historic sofa and gives it a stylish and modern look. We love being a part of preserving family heirlooms like this one.
We made a looses cover for the body and cushions for this beautifully dimensioned large sofa.
The sofa design is a country house oversized sofa with a rolling soft back and arms. Our customer provided the print fabric from Linwood Fabrics. This is a lovely Country House sofa to keep forever.
A nice pair of two-seater sofas we reupholstered. The Linwood Moleskin fabric is quite lovely to look at and touch. The pair of Moroccan-style sofas make a neat social sofa seating area. We are a Linwood Fabric stockist Our Fabrics Page

In a lovely blue fabric, this is a unique style sofa we reupholstered. Seen here just delivered to our customers home.
The curved detailed lines are really sharp on this fantastic sofa, we made arm caps for practice reasons as this soft will be used daily and the addition of the large scatter cushions really sets it off.
It’s a particularly large sofa that the customer has owned for years. The lady loved it could not find a replacement, therefore, had this one restored and reupholstered in Linwood Fabrics ‘Forget Me Not’ fabric which is discontinued now. We made the rather fine looking scatter cushions using the customer supplied fabric. Another one I want to take home 🙂
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.
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.
