Frequently asked questions

How does your process work?


We will provide you with an initial estimate for reviving your furniture. If you are happy with the estimate, we would then discuss your fabric requirements, and make a time for you to come to the workshop to look at all the pretty things. We have access to a wide range of fabric houses to suit all styles and budgets, and choosing the perfect fabric is definitely one of the most fun parts! Once you have chosen your fabric, we will send you a formal quote for acceptance with details of your fabric deposit, and then order your fabric. When your fabric arrives we are ready to start work! Please see our Terms and Conditions for more details.




Do you supply fabric?


Yes! We have access to a vast range of fabric options starting from around $40 per metre. We work with a variety of well known fabric suppliers such as: Warwick Fabrics, James Dunlop Fabrics, Unique Fabrics, Textilia, Malcolm Fabrics, Atelier Textiles, Diva International and Icon Textiles. You are welcome to pop in to our workshop and browse our samples. If there is nothing there that takes your fancy we can order cuttings for you, or borrow samples of other fabrics from the Design Library and DesignMade in Wellington.




Can I bring my own fabric?


We are happy to work with our clients' own fabric. We have even covered a chair for a client in an heirloom rug from Bhutan! We will be honest with you about whether your chosen fabric is suitable for upholstery usage. When our clients are supplying their own fabric we ask to view it first, so we can ascertain whether or not we are able to work with it - not all fabrics are created equal! Please see our Terms and Conditions for further information. We charge a $20 per metre cutting fee for using client-supplied fabric.




Do you pick up and deliver?


We are able to collect and deliver smaller items of furniture around the inner city Wellington region on a case-by-case basis. For larger items we can organise a removal company to collect and deliver your furniture within the Wellington region. Contact us for a quote. You are of course also welcome to organise your own delivery and collection of furniture!




Can I visit your workshop?


You are welcome to make an appointment to come and visit us in our workshop to chat about fabric or furniture! Our hours are 9am-2.30pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday. We can make other times and weekends work on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us to make a time.
