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.
This glorious chair was hand made by our customers’ Grandfather. Made of solid oak, it was our pleasure to work with it
Calico is a base fabric usually found under loose cover chairs and sofas.
Here we repaired the chair and re-foamed the body before reupholstering in a fresh calico cover. The customer will now fit back on the loose covers.
A set of 4 good quality light wood dining chairs that are used daily. We fitted new seat foams and upholstered in a lovely denim blue AqaClean fabric.
AquaClean looks just like a quality soft to the touch fabric with the additional benefit of easy clean – spills and marks can be simply wiped off with a cloth and water, nothing else.
Perfect for eating areas and busy living rooms.
We are really delighted with the chairs. Thank you very much. Elaine W.
A lambing chair that we reupholstered for artist Ed Kluz. Ed is a painter, illustrator, and printmaker. He designed the fabric for this chair for an exhibition in The Scottish Gallery, Dundas Street, Edinburgh. 3rd – 27th October 2018.
His work explores our relationship with the past through notions of English Romanticism. Read more about Ed.
A nursing chair is a chair that’s comfortable when nursing an infant, set low with a deep seat.
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.
