Uplift, repair, and return service​.

Repairs.
All types of repairs. Our Uplift, repair, and return service will fix the 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 £600

This standard service came from in the past collecting a sofa for repair and then collecting it again later for further repairs. Realise that it 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 replace the serpentine springs.

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

victorian chaise lounge

Victorian Chaise Lounge

A classic victorian chaise lounge we reupholstered for our customer. Our customer sourced the fabric, it looks stunning.

We have restored and reupholstered countless chaise lounges over the years – here are some other Chaise Lounge examples Often they are in a bad state, the frames are delicate due to the fine design and long stretch between the legs and the coil springs will need replacing or re-tieing. All are repairable to make your Chaise Lounge as it was new.

Knole Sofa

Knoll Sofa

A nice example of a modern knole style sofa in Linwood Omega velvet print. The black sofa is already in place. We added new large scatter cushions in the Omega print to complement the newly upholstered sofa.

When your living room looks like this, would you ever go out?

Information: The original Knole Settee (also known as the Knole Sofa) is a couch chair that was made in the 17th century, probably around 1640. It is housed at ‘Knole’ in Kent, a house owned by the Sackville-West family since 1605 but now in the care of the National Trust.

Large Sofa

In a lovely blue fabric, this is a unique style sofa we reupholstered. Seen here just delivered to our customers home.

The curved detailed lines are really sharp on this fantastic sofa, we made arm caps for practice reasons as this soft will be used daily and the addition of the large scatter cushions really sets it off.

It’s a particularly large sofa that the customer has owned for years. The lady loved it could not find a replacement, therefore, had this one restored and reupholstered in Linwood Fabrics ‘Forget Me Not’ fabric which is discontinued now. We made the rather fine looking scatter cushions using the customer supplied fabric. Another one I want to take home 🙂

Lounge Suite

Lounge Suite

We were delighted to restore this contemporary Lounge Suite set for our customer. It had previously been re-upholstered by another company but our customer was never wholely pleased with it. It’s a very high-quality set therefore worth restoring again. The concern was, will it be right this time? Barry, our head upholsterer, stepped-in. He decided to redesign the reupholstery style based on the frame and his knowledge of this period brand. He bespoke tailor reupholstered the set based on the frame from scratch to restore it as the original. Our customer was delighted, relieved and pleasantly surprised. As we were too.

Dark wood rocker

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.

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

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.
