Traditional wingback chair restored and updated with an ‘on-trend’ fabric.

We often talk with customers who want to update or change the fabric on a chair or sofa.

The hurdle often can be the price.  It costs more to reupholster say a Next Interiors or Laura Ashley chair than it does to buy a new one.  The great thing about the likes of Next Interiors or Laura Ashley is that they are ‘on-trend’ and the fabrics used are very lovely to look at.  The negative is that they are made to a price and probably mass produced in China or India – nothing wrong with that as it gives us a great deal – but they are made to a price and engineered to last just a few years with average use.

For value for money and a piece of furniture that will last much longer your better off buying an older quality chair and investing in a restoration of your design.

Here is an example of a fairly standard traditional wingback chair restored and updated with an ‘on-trend’ fabric.  Costs a bit more, take a little more time to instigate but made to your style using British craftsmen and quality fabrics.  There is no other like it!

Chaise Long

We restore antique furniture as originally built using tie-in coil springs and modernised wadding with rubberised ‘horse hair’. So the result is a classic handmade piece of historic furniture you can use every day and will last far longer than a modern version.  I’m in love!

Kingston High Back Dining Chairs

The Kingston high back Dining Chair features clean contours and a scrolled back. The Kingston is an elegant design that is suited to most homes.  The quality of this style of chair varies by manufacturer, indeed low price copies of the original can be found online.  The better levels of quality are worth reupholstering.  We strip to the frame, check and repair, re-web and spring, re-foam/pad and upholster as required.

This example has an oak frame and polished legs.

 

This is an original Kingston High Back dining chair – circa 1930’s. The set was lovingly restored in our workshop.

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.
