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.

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.

To match a fireside chair we reupholstered.

We recently restored an antique fireside chair in this leather hide. There was just enough leather to cover this footstool also.  So here it is about completed waiting on the bench for the finishing touches of upholstery round headed pins in each corner.  See the ‘Rolls Royce’ corner stitch in the detailed photo – Lovely!

Nursing Chair Restoration

A nursing chair is a chair that’s comfortable when nursing an infant, set low with a deep seat.

Nursing Chair

In Victorian times the nursing chair was a low seated partially upholstered chair, comfortable and easy to move to where best and warmest, often by the low fire in days of old. We find them often from old houses that ‘back in the day’ actually had a nursery.

This chair form was particularly popular in England and found primarily in upper class homes. The types of wood most frequently used were oak, rosewood or walnut,this example is fully upholstered. Often passed down through the family, a nursing chair can hold those lovely memories of nursing the child in the middle of the night.

Always a magical chair and now used mostly as a bedroom occasional chair or dressing table chair or something to throw clothes on! Always pretty and a popular restoration.
