Just finished restoring this Parker Knoll chair and it looks amazing! The frame has been polished, the springing restored, and the cushions have been reupholstered to give it a fresh and stylish look. Can’t wait to see it in its new home!
Geometric pattern chair | We don’t often catch furniture as we reupholster in the workshop often but we did catch this great occasional contemporary chair on the bench and then in our customer’s home. The fabric was provided by our customer, a Geometric pattern that really makes the chair stand out as a design piece.
Pieces like this are artwork that we can sit on (if allowed).
A delightful pair of Edwardian chairs we reupholstered in Scottish Futura leather. See the fabric seat and studs around the arm.
In blue velvet.
This is a utility rocking chair. Utility furniture was furniture produced in the United Kingdom during and directly after World War II.
This has been in the same family and has witnessed good and bad times.
Reupholstered in a fabric by P&S, tartan. Framed cleaned and waxed leaving the historical patina.
This is a delightful sofa, a two-seater sofa we custom made a set of loose covers using the customer’s own fabric.
This chair now lives in Northallerton. We reupholstered in a Linwood Fabrics weave. Arms and wings are upholstered burgundy leather. A clever combination.
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 🙂
We work with bespoke manufacturers nationally to upholster their manufactured furniture and specialised soft furnishing.
We upholstered these units in a commercial vinyl.
The colour combination with the chrome frame is really stunning.
See the detail stitching – the feel of this fabric feels just like a high-grade leather.
These occasional antique chairs originally designed as a nursing chair work as a lovely feature and occasional seating.
Our customer chose the distinctive pheasant fabric that I think really changes the look to a modern classic.
A clever combination!
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!
What a pleasure to work with these fine and robust 200-year-old antique dining chairs.
Chaise Long restored and reupholstered to ‘as-new’.
Ready to serve and look stylish in any home for another 100 years
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!
A beautiful and extremely comfortable Victorian chair.
Fully restored to include all hand-tied base springs and padding with a wad base. Now looking as-new at over 100 years old. Upholstered in W&B Scottish leather.
For the highest quality craftsmanship in furniture restoration and reupholstery. All our work comes with the ‘Total Satisfaction Guarantee’. A family business established for 30 years.
A traditional snub-arm fireside chair.
Reupholstered ‘Lift-Lid’ Footstool
Upholstered in our customer’s own fabric.
I always have a footstool on my house. They make sitting and chatting with a cuppa really comfortable as you rest your feet and you can place the tea tray there too.
This example has a lift-lid to store games, magazines and any other clutter you may have to quickly clear the room – X-Box controllers mostly in my house:)
