Areas We Cover.

We are often asked about the areas we cover for furniture collection. In general, we provide a national service, but our collections are primarily in Darlington, North Yorkshire, and up to Newcastle. However, we have also had customers ship furniture to us from Portugal, Ireland, and France, so location isn’t a problem as long as you can get the furniture to us. We offer free, expert advice on reupholstery and restoration jobs, and we can guide you on how to ship your furniture to us. It’s simpler than you might think. Feel free to contact Jo Griffiths at BJ Upholstery to discuss your requirements.

Geometric pattern chair

Reupholstery Progress

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).

utility rocking chair

Rocking Chair

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.

Large Sofa

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 🙂

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 restoration

Chaise Long restored and reupholstered to ‘as-new’.

Ready to serve and look stylish in any home for another 100 years

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!
