Loose cover country house oversized sofa

Loose Cover Sofa

We made a looses cover for the body and cushions for this beautifully dimensioned large sofa.

The sofa design is a country house oversized sofa with a rolling soft back and arms. Our customer provided the print fabric from Linwood Fabrics. This is a lovely Country House sofa to keep forever.

Historic Leather Chair

Historic Leather Chair

Reupholstered in quality Scottish leather.

I adore this very strong-designed chair. Our customer selected genuine leather to replace the original leather and I think it was a good choice. We only use high-quality leather hides and it shows really well on this chair. It will last for another 100 years I am quite certain.

Wing Chair

This wing chair, a fireside wing-back chair, is a turn of the century classic. The inside back panel you can see is a coordinating pattern fabric. The fabric is the original fabric of the chair our customer wanted to retain as it is a reminder of her late husband who loved the chair.

Linwood omega velvet fabric is what we chose to compliment the original fabric. The customer is delighted with the result and so are we – it looks just lovely.

The occasional chair is in a Wemyss weave fabric. And the blue chair is in a velvet fabric.

Before and after

Before and After

Well, it’s not really. This is the first Kingston chair (on the left) we reupholstered as part of a group of six. The one on the right is, of course, one of the chairs before we *reupholstered it and on the left is the freshly reupholstered Kingston chair. We hope you like this strong demonstration of what we produce. It’s not often we get the chance to show a ‘before and after’ photograph.

*When we reupholstery an item of furniture we don’t always explain that the internals is also fixed, strengthened, re-foamed, wrapped, and re-sprung as required before we reupholster.

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.

1960s Sofa

1960s Retro

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.

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.

Check Recliner Chair

Check Recliner Chair in P&S Balmoral Duck Egg Blue.

A recliner chair we delivered to Darlington today. The fabric is P&S Balmoral Duck Egg Blue Check.

We can reupholster any chair in, almost, any fabric and what a difference a new fresh modern fabric can make. As you can see in this example.
