Loose covers for sofa - detail

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.

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.

On the bench this week, Cadillac Car Seats.

Car seats are not something we reupholster too often.

We usually only work on car seat restoration rather that regular repairs etc.

This customer asked us to restore front and back seats of his ‘desert find’ Cadillac from Arizona where it sat for 30 years.

This is an interesting historic car seat resoration.

Real leather hide was requested to replace the original blue and grey, cloth now almost turned to dust.

Here are the The Cadillac Eldorado seats waiting to be stripped down – I wonder what we may find inside? Hopefully not a rattle snake!

Pub, Bar and Restaurant Work

Professional and Long-Lasting Quality Reupholstery for the Commercial Business; Pub, Bar and Restaurant Work

We work for ‘Toby Carvery’ through the North East and many of our amazing Pubs, Bars, Hotels and Restaurants.  Commercial work is completed as and when required to fit with the business schedules.  Nearly all jobs will need to be uplifted to our workshop and in some cases we can provide loan chairs – for a hotel for example so you can keep on trading.

Here is an example of a restaurant where the designer included some upholstered button back walls – quite effective.

North East England and North Yorkshire.

Are you thinking of re-upholstering a chair or sofa, restoring an antique or reinventing a historic find?

The quality of older furniture frames and structure is far better than most modern sofas and chairs. Restored and upholstered professionally an older chair or sofa will outlast most modern version and of course be so much more unique, hold its value and also you will find the proportions a little more generous.
