Why Re-Upholster ?

Restoring your existing furniture whether its a Chair, Sofa, Settee or even 2 - 3 Piece Suite, providing it is of a good quality will prove to be a very good investment. Generally, when Re-Upholstering an item the final cost is just half to two thirds of the price of the equivalent item when new.

Normally if the furniture is 12 or more years old then all the filling i.e. Armrests, Seats & Backs, as well as all cushions will be renewed, so Re-Upholstery rather than Re-covering. All frames, springs/sundries will be repaired/renewed as necessary.

All top brands of fabrics supplied (including a fabric sourcing service) or customers own can be used. The fabric will always be pattern matched.

Modern Upholstery

Fillings used for Seat & Backrest cushions will be of a density to the customer’s preference .Using C.M.H.R. foam wrapped with polyester fibre and a stockinet covering or Duck feather, Hollow fibre, Memory foam, and combinations of.

Marine/Yacht or Caravan cushions

Paper templates will be taken of which new Seat, Backrest, Berth & Cockpit cushions can be cut and made, Inc chamfered edges & any awkward cut outs e.g. pipes.

Fabric will be matched when cutting out and Foam filling will be of a density to the customer’s preference.

Antique Upholstery

The item will be stripped & Upholstered using traditional methods and fillings, e.g. hair, coir fibre & cotton felt.

A seat for example will have coil springs stitched onto a Jute webbing base. They are then lashed onto each other & fixed to frame. The springs will then be covered by & tied onto Hessian. Coir fibre is then added, held in place by bridal ties. This then is covered by more Hessian and tacked to frame.

Edges are stitched by hand, 3 row’s making a good firm (long lasting) edge with a small rolled edge on top. Next a layer of hair topped with cotton felt. It is then covered by calico & is now ready for the top fabric to be applied.

Our Aim

The intention is to make the furniture look as good if not better than when it was new. If the work is carried out methodically at every stage then there is no fear in relation to the workmanship in years to come.

Basically if the job is done properly in the first place then I should not need to come back after a few months to put something right.
