Howard Chair

A Howard Chair

These are a delightful design. Known as a ‘Howard Chair’ after the original manufacturer in London. There are many variations of this plain but distinctively styled chair. They fit in a modern and a traditional home. We can make a new version to order but this was one we restored.

Victorian Sofa

Victorian deep button sofa.

I have been looking forward to sharing this item. A very rare and on-trend genuine Victorian sofa. It looks luscious in the customers’ own fabric – a rich port red. Unknown to most is the craftsmanship inside the sofa. Been a Victorian piece of a very high quality the frame was is strengthened by cast-iron bars. We renewed all the base webbing to be as tight as steel – the sofa can take it. And it looks very special.

Chesterfield back

Chesterfield Sofa

Our customer purchased this amazing high-quality Chesterfield sofa for less than £100. It needed a full restoration of course but the quality when we took it apart was the best we have ever seen. Now restored and upholstered in the customers choice of Linwood Omega Italian Velvet in river stone – wow it looks amazing, sits beautifully and will last a lifetime.

Orange peel chair

Orange Peel Chair

The original concept of this chair was to emulate the organic shape of falling orange peel. The shape of the finished chair is beautiful and the comfort surpasses the appearance.

I must say, I have never seen one in real life before. Reupholstering it was a bit of a puzzle as the shape and curve of the one curved cushion were, let’s say not traditional. But as you can see we did restore this lovely chair in the customers chosen fabric over the original vinyl. A good move as it now looks and feels much softer. A fine artwork that is also a chair – lovely.

Uplift, repair, and return service​.

Repairs.
All types of repairs. Our Uplift, repair, and return service will fix most common problems like the broken frame, replace springs and repair the under-seat platform. Ask for a specific quote. Prices include repair parts but may require additional parts like new bespoke foams or sprung units – please ask for a quote.  The uplift and repair service is £400.

This standard service came from in the past collecting a sofa for repair then collecting it again later for further repairs. Realising that is is far more cost effective to uplift repair and refurbish a sofa all in one go.

What is covered in the price

The uplift and return delivery to your home. Check and make good the frame, springs, webbing and any other issues like ripped platform.

Every job is different. Usually a sofa will come into the workshop for one repair item, while it is there we check and repair all as stated above included in the price.

An Example

A customer contacted us to repair a ripped platform (the fabric liner under the seat cushions). We suggested the Uplift, repair, and return service​. On investigation we found the cause of the ripped platform was sagging springs. So we replaces the serpentime springs.

Additions can be new bespoke foam seat cushions, fibre back cushions, replacement legs and new seat cases. New feather inner cases to order.

Wool Fireside Chair

Wool Fireside Chair

Although I’d say this is a more winter type chair it will sit cool in your home. Wool is cool in the heat and warm in the winter. Also, isn’t it a good idea to get all your reupholstery done now, in the summer, while we are traditionally quieter, it’s easier to move furniture around too – fewer draughts and muddy feet.

1930’s Oak Rocking Chair

We are delighted to restore this sprung rocking chair.

Our customer loved the chair but it was past its best. To buy a new chair or restore the old was the question. It fits nicely in the conservatory, the customer liked the style so she decided to instruct us to restore the wood back to its original colour, re-web (under seat springing) and reupholster with all new foam padding.

The result is a fine quality bespoke restored chair.

We used Ross fabric as selected and think it works really well.

Note the all new webbing and fabric under cushion sleeve as it was originally.

A Stunning Bergère set

Restored and reupholstered in a luscious rich claret velvet. Perfect for a library. Bergère Chairs are very comfortable due to the deep and wide seats, usually feather filled cushions and a slightly lower height.

Above is the Bergere set in the workshop. An older reupholstery had made the cushions a little too narrow and our customer wanted the cushions firmed-up and to be made comfortable. So as you can see on the above photo we made the new red cushion cases a little wider to fit snug with the frame.

Cafe Seating – Commercial

We are proud to work on this brand new – soon to open a cafe in Reeth, North Yorkshire. Located in a basement, this new cafe has tiled wood floors and contemporary bench seating. Our customer selected the AquClean commercial fabric that can be cleaned with just water. The pistachio colour looks great against the ‘wood’ floor. Upholstered new bench seating.
