An example of a completed reupholstered chaise longue

Chaise Longue

Ten examples of chaise longue we have restored and reupholstered. The modern chaise longue was first popularised during the 16th century in France, hence the rather lovely name ‘Chaise Longue’ – it always congers up a sophisticated romantic feel. Chaise Longue were created by French furniture craftsmen for the rich to rest without the need to retire to the bedroom. I think I need one.

Victorian Chaise Lounge

A classic victorian chaise lounge we reupholstered for our customer. Our customer sourced the fabric, it looks stunning.

We have restored and reupholstered countless chaise lounges over the years – here are some other Chaise Lounge examples Often they are in a bad state, the frames are delicate due to the fine design and long stretch between the legs and the coil springs will need replacing or re-tieing. All are repairable to make your Chaise Lounge as it was new.

Victorian Chair

Years in Storage

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.

Small turn of century armchair

Turn Of Century Armchair

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.
