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.

Fireside Chair

A Lovely Fireside Wingback chair

Parker Knoll made this style of chair famous. Wingback chairs have been made for hundreds of years – the wing to shelter you from draughts and to rest your head. Our customer selected a lovely wool mix plaid tartan and asked us to self pipe the edges.

It looks really elegant and styling, now updated and more fitting to a contemporary or traditional home.

A chair like this is a valuable asset to any family and it may live in a number of rooms in the future. Very lovely.

Knole Sofa

Knole Sofas

A pair of classic Knoll Sofa in Italian Velvet.

We had a little debate recently on how to spell ‘Knole’ when referring to a Knole Sofa. With a little help from the Internet, we confirmed the correct spelling and decided to share some history – you can view the original Knole sofa in Knole in Kent.

The Knole sofa was made in the 17th century. Originally used not as a comfortable sofa but as a formal throne on which the monarch would have sat to receive visitors. It is housed at Knole in Kent, a house owned by the Sackville-Wests since 1605 but now in the care of the National Trust.

To identify a Knole sofa it usually has exposed wooden finials at the rear corner tops. The arms are sides and are of the same height as the back. The side arms are tied to the sofa back by means of heavy decorative braid, often with an elaborate tassel.

In addition to this I have a theory that the arms could be lowered to make a tempory bed. All said and done they always look regal.

Chair in Calico Fabric

Calico is a base fabric usually found under loose cover chairs and sofas.

Here we repaired the chair and re-foamed the body before reupholstering in a fresh calico cover. The customer will now fit back on the loose covers.

1930s Chair in houndstooth by Linwood-wing

1930​s Chair

The strong shape and sturdy lines of this chair made me fall in love with it. Our customer chose a beautiful Linwood houndstooth fabric with a gentle stone and lichen colourway. The build quality of this era of furniture manufacturer is impeccable – again, sturdy and strong quality. The equivalent, if you could buy one new, would be over £5000. And it’s great to restore rather than make new – a delight. Matching sofa below.

Swivel Chair

Deep T Swivel Chair

How about a bespoke contemporary chair made just for you, just the way you like it. Made to order to your exacting requirements. The Deep T chair can be made static with a choice of legs or – like this one – it can swivel, ideal for a corner to allow the chair to slightly turn for conversations or serious watching TV and set in a wider area like a large window to allow full view or change of light.

We make these chairs to order in any fabric from our catalogue or supply your own fabric. This piece was ordered with thick bolster cushions. You can specify shapes and styles of the cushion shape and filling consistency.

The styling is contemporary so it will fit with a traditional home or a modern home.
