Antique Upholstery

Not sure what to do with that old antique French chair that’s been sitting in the garage?

Why not restore it to its original splendour, and give it pride of place as an occasional bedroom chair, or living-room showpiece suite.

“I offer extensive experience in upholstering antique chairs, suites and occasional pieces. I follow a process that starts with explaining the rebuild steps to my customer, this way they have a new appreciation for the craftsmanship that will go into their unique piece.

I then begin with, and in order of the:

  • Initial bare frame
  • Respringing Hand stuffing
  • Stitching
  • Studding

I promptly discuss any unforeseen issues that may arise, as well as send my clients progress pictures of the various restoration stages. This takes my client along on the rejuvenation journey. I want them to treasure their piece for years to come”. If you’ve ever wondered ‘how much it would cost to reupholster a chair’, then give me a call and you may be surprised at the value for money I offer.

Household Upholstery

Instead of throwing out that old lounge suite, why not re-upholster it, and bring it up to the modern minute?

One-off bespoke pieces are crafted to enhance, by re-webbing, adding new foam and beautiful upholstery fabric; you can have a better than brand new quality product, that will last. It is my attention to detail, quality craftsmanship and skill sets that delivers a superior product, you will appreciate."

Furniture Restoration and Carpentry

Why throw out a great outdoor garden bench when you can restore it for half the cost of buying a new one? Chances are a new one will not have the timber quality of a treasured old piece. I take pride in the restoration of outdoor furniture, and bring it back to its original lustre and strength. This ensures it will handle outdoor use for years to come.

You would be surprised how an old solid piece of furniture can come up beautifully with some furniture repair work and Tender Loving Care.



Upholstery Classes

I value education in the traditional methods of upholstery. I offer my skills and knowledge via small classes, where customers can come and learn the techniques to develop the upholstery skills required to restore their own piece of furniture. My upholstery courses are presently in the initial phase of development and are currently based on workshop enquires and course numbers.
