The shape of this chair is adorable anyway, covered in newspaper it would still look good :). Here we have restored and reupholstered in a modern velvet with a contrasting back panel. Its something I would have not thought of. Our customer did and it looks great and we made a bespoke unique chair.
PS – You don’t just buy your soft furnishings do you? Design and build to your exact requirements.
It’s difficult with blue, it can look cold. This matching pair of probably 1950s occasional chairs look tasteful in a french blue, certainly not even cool. An inviting smart and stylish pair of chairs. Indeed this is Ross Aquaclean fabric a fabric you can clean with just water.
Our customer selected a Porter & Stone Fabric in Balmoral Plaid. The citrus colour lifts the chair and modernises to make a perfect occasional chair that is totally unique. We love the braids detail and the way the fabric is lined through the centre and through the buttons.
A fairly traditional looking chair but of good quality. Our customer selected a Linwood velour print fabric. The look of the chair is now something really special, a designer style chair and totally unique that will look stunning in any setting alone or with its matching sofa.
A 1960s design classic. Reupholstered in Linwood Tweed Herringbone, sage green.

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.

Two very interesting and lovely chairs we reupholstered in flags. Stars and Stripes and the Union Jack. The best photo is the close up of the lion arm – see below. You may also be interested to see a chair we reupholstered in football shirts.
The wood frame has been stripped and waxed to its natural colour. We made new cushions in a fabric from the Ross Bramley collection in chocolate brown. The frame was re-webbed. Delivery to Northumberland.
Our customer purchased the sofa new from ‘Oliviers of Richmond and Barnard Castle’ new 35 years ago.
Isn’t it wonderful to buy a sofa, use it for 35 years then restore it for the next generation to enjoy? Oh, the good old days.
These dining chairs were reupholstered in white grained leather as requested by the customer. Previously upholstered in the cloth – see the original image below. We use only the finest Scottish leather, it looks amazing, feels fantastic and smells really lovely. The quality of these hides is way better than most manufactured leather furniture. The leather is 4mm thick so will take generations of use. They were boardroom chairs owned by the customer. We transformed into white for the dining room.
At first glance, you may be forgiven for thinking this is just an old dated dining chair. Look at the frame, particularly the curved and jointed front curve of the arms, the sheen of the varnish. This is a quality designer chair. Reupholstered in a high-grade Scottish leather it took two hides to complete the set of six. Now an upgraded design piece that will sit well in a modern or contemporary home.
