First of all, for those of you not familiar with exactly what reupholstery means:
Reupholstery is when we revive a piece of furniture and bring it back to the comfort and style of the original design.
We do this by stripping the furniture back to its frame and then completely rebuilding it back up. We then replace any elements that require updating, e.g. webs, springs, padding, and stuffing, if it’s a really old piece this will be done using traditional materials. It’s not just sofas and chairs that can be reupholstered, items such as chairs and bed bases are hugely popular too.
Once it’s finished it will look like the day you bought it (or even better, which we are delighted to say is feedback we have had from some of our lovely customers!). When we strip back to the frame we can also make slight design changes to create a more modern look. Something simple like removing the skirt of a chair or sofa can modernise it instantly. Of course, the fabric choice makes a huge impact too. Quite often full reupholstery is not required and we simply re-cover a chair or sofa and replace the cushion inners. This can be incredibly effective and transform a tired looking piece of furniture into a new fresh eye-catching piece.
Reupholstery or a re-cover is perfect for furniture that is good quality, a perfect size for the room, much loved, and super comfy. Best of all it’s better for the environment and if you choose to re-cover in an ‘Eco Fabric’ (check out our blog for more info on this) you really are doing everything possible to be eco-friendly!
We can reupholster or recover bed divans, chairs, sofas, headboards, dining chairs and barstools, and it’s an incredibly simple process
Reupholstering your furniture
The process starts with an initial conversation over email or phone to discuss your ideas, thoughts and requirements (don’t worry if these aren’t very developed – that’s what we are here for!).
The next step is a home consultation. During this We will then ask for photographs of your furniture so we can provide an accurate quotation.
