Reupholstery

Whether it's as simple as recovering to bring a loved piece of furniture back into style, or stripping a piece of furniture back to bare bones and restoring it to its former glory, we will treat your piece of furniture with the utmost care, and work with you to meet your requirements. 

 

As suppliers of beautiful fabrics from home and abroad, we can help you choose the right match for your decor and budget. We are happy to work with your own fabric, and will be honest about whether it is suitable for the job. We have even recovered a chair using a handwoven rug from Bhutan! 

 

Nothing makes us (or the planet!) sadder than discarded or neglected furniture, and nothing makes us happier than chatting about furniture. Get in touch, we are super friendly!

   

Les Fauves chair

Made by our client's uncle, this little chair needed the perfect fabric to make it eye-catching and unique. This beautiful Linwood fabric Omega velvet print ‘Les Fauves’ from Diva International is a nod to the past with the stylised roses and has given the chair a new lease on life. Piping in Copenhagen velvet ‘Petal’ frames the fabric beautifully. The chair frame has been refinished and reglued to address structural issues. Thank you to our lovely client for trusting us with her treasure! 

Mid-century pair in Warwick Victory 'Leaf'

Freshened up for spring in Warwick Fabrics Victory in ‘Leaf’ and with the natural grain of the wood revealed and enhanced by oil and wax, these cute mid-century chairs are now looking retro chic again!

Tub chair in Zimmer + Rohde 'Moji'

This sweet tub chair was much loved by its owner, her cat and some resident borer! We stripped it right back to its native wood bones, treated the borer and then oiled and waxed to a soft smooth finish. The chair has been completely rebuilt including sturdy new webbing. Thankfully the wonderful original springs, coir and flock filling could be reused with the help of new burlap and a nice layer of foam. Traditional reupholstery is a labour of love and we are thrilled this client wanted the time taken to restore her special chair. She chose the stunning Zimmer + Rohde 'Moji' fabric from Unique Fabrics and it was such a joy to work with.

Chaise-style couch in Warwick Fabrics 'Adore' velvet

Where to even start with this stunning couch?! This curvy beauty was gifted to us by a kind neighbour who bought it new over 20 years ago from Stacks Furniture in Newtown. We couldn't resist taking her in despite her generous proportions and our ‘bijoux’ workshop. Luckily, she was soon snapped up by our lovely client who fell in love at first sight, and chose Warwick Fabrics Adore velvet in Atlantic for her makeover. This velvet is so soft and luminous, and shows off literally any colour of cushion to perfection. 

Morris & Co 'Fruit' Armchair

Such a treat to work with the beautiful William Morris & Co from Textilia for this beloved armchair. Our client loved the original fabric but the cat and the sun had taken their toll! Big prints really suit this classic style of rolled armchair, and they make a beautiful feature piece.
