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.
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.
A lovely Victorian Chaise Lounge. We have reupholstered some 100s of chaise lounge. Mostly Victorian and Georgian and some modern versions, they were particularly popular in Victorian days. This example is unusual as it has a metal frame. A total refurbishment and reupholster, we think she looks delightful in blue and we love the curved form of the front edge. The fabric is a Linwood Italian velvet in a teal blue. Delivered to our customer in Darlington.
Where would you find such a quality classic like this in modern retail shops? – I’m in love.

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.
It’s all in the detail. The details on these exquisite dining chairs are lovely. Deep buttoned seats with a braided edge. The fabric is a Linwood cotton print, see our fabrics page.
Thank you to our customer for allowing the photos to share for future customer inspiration.
Here is something a little different. We reupholstered a relatively recent Chesterfield sofa in a sunflower gold velour. The chesterfield was probably manufactured in the 1980s, so it’s not ancient like some we have restored. The dimensions are good, a deep seat and a slightly higher back. It was bespoke restored to go in our customers guest cottage/chill-out area at the home in the Cotswolds.

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.
This chair has an interesting history. It was once owned by the NHS at St Mary’s hospital in Paddington, London.
