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.

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:)
A Stylish clean lined chair made by Mulberry.
Isn’t she lovely!
We made two sets of loose covers for this customers bedroom chairs.
Customers own fabric. Tidies up two kids bedroom chairs – looks cool!
Interesting this chair as it has a low back rail with a high back foam cushion. The back cushion fits behind the seat foam. Possibly a Ikea designed chair.
This fine example of an Ercol Chair.
Always a pleasure to work with. Our customer chose a plaid shade to coordinate with the bentwood English elm, a perfect fresh look.
A little about Ercol
Since 1944 Ercol has produced chairs with a bentwood frame and an arched back supporting delicate spindles. The wood selected was English elm – a wood previously thought impossible to bend because it distorted.
We restore Ercol Bentwood Chairs and sofas including restoration of the wood frame. We clean down, check joints and re-wax. This keeps the originality but protects the wood better, brings out the lustre and keeps them solid for daily use.
Older Fireside Chairs are great quality.
Look at this restored reupholstered high quality chair in an American wool mix check fabric. Linwood fabric check.

Reupholstered in a stylish woven fabric.
Conservatory Furniture, Orangery or Florida room etc.
If you have good quality solid frame conservatory furniture, its worth reupholstering or in most cases simply recovering the cushions in a modern up to date fabric. We can also replace or re-wrap the fibre back cushions and foam seat cushions.
Fabric used on mass produced conservatory furniture often is cotton based, thin and made to a cost. The sun of course eventually breaks it down and your left with a good frame.
An option is to custom make a bespoke replacement with an upholstery grade quality fabric.
Not only is this a cost effective way to build a quality bespoke product, it also means you don’t have to shop for (often inferior) replacement – you keep the furniture that you know and know it fits.
This example was recovered in a stunning Linwood fabric that really suits the style of room.
When Jo delivered the reupholstered cushions the room was not quite finished but I promised I would send photographs so please find these attached. I am thrilled with the result, they are wonderful. I have ordered new blinds and am looking for “pieces” to finish dressing the room. I would thank you all for your friendliness and professional attitude.
I would have no problem recommending you to anyone thinking of reupholstering furniture.
Best wishes, Ida.
PS just waiting for warm weather to use the cushion on wrought iron garden seat!
Its not just ‘re-covering’
This is restoration. As you can see in the photos below; we strip the furniture back and remove the, in this case 200 year old, padding and reconstruct using modern variations of horse hair and modern wadding. Checking and fixing the frame then we re-fit/replace and tie-in with twine the coil springs.
Modern furniture is not built this way. And this type of furniture was an expensive luxury in its day, therefor it was built to a very high standard. The comfort is something else.
We have a 1904 chair in our shop – come and sit in it, you wont want to leave – remember we close at 5!
