Upholstery Work

Upholstery work is carried out at our rural workshop, located in the heart of the Tamar Valley, where all styles and periods of furniture can be given a new lease of life, using traditional techniques.  Only high-quality fabrics and leathers are used, to give professional and long-lasting results.

‘Repair and restore, don’t buy more!’ – Whether you wish us to upholster your furniture using specific, traditional materials and colours, or wish to totally upcycle a piece of furniture to match your colour scheme, we can accommodate your requests. Replacement of interior fibres/wool felt/wadding etc. are carried out at the same time. We can also facilitate repairs and/or replace springs and webbing where necessary.

Repairing furniture, rather than replacing it, not only saves money in the long run, but also reduces the impact on the environment – reducing landfill and your carbon footprint.

Craftmanship

Our bespoke upholstery commissions are undertaken using traditional craftmanship techniques, where attention to detail is paramount. Typically, the following processes will be used.

However, this may differ depending on the style/period of furniture:

  • EExisting fabric/leather will be stripped down to expose the interior fibres.
  • EAny necessary repairs will be made if requested, and structural stability ensured.
  • EInternal fibres/materials will be removed and typically replaced using high grade fibre replacement/upholstery wool felt and/or other, depending on the type of furniture – this process is necessary, particularly for old furniture, in order to comply with the Furniture and Furnishing (Fire Safety) Regulations 1988 (amended 1989, 1993 & 2010.)
  • EJute Webbing (or other) and upholstery hessian etc. will be replaced.
  • ENew springs will be added – creating structure and durability.
  • ENew internal materials will be attached together using a combination of traditional blind stitching and top stitching.
  • EOnce the internal components have been completed, your furniture will be upholstered with high quality fabric/leather of your choice.

Upholstery can be undertaken for all manner of antique, vintage or modern furniture including (but not limited to): Parker Knoll, GPlan, Ercol, Eames, Heirloom, Midcentury, Edwardian, Victorian etc.   A selection of fabrics we have used include: Harris Tweed, Clarke & Clarke, Emma. J. Shipley, Loom Fabrics etc.

Antony Jefferies
Recliner Repair

We ordered a recliner from a local shop. Unfortunately we had a problem with the motor and the company arranged for Andrew Marks to visit us. He was excellent and it was sorted within couple of days.

Peter Anderton
Leather Repair

On-time. Polite. Efficient back office and admin. All marks magically removed from our light grey leather chairs. Exactly what they “say on the tin” What more could one want in this day and age?

Susan Hume

Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value. Andrew and Archie reupholstered our leather sofa cushions last week. The results are better than we could have hoped. The job was done so professionally we would have no hesitation in recommending this company. Thanks for a great job, well done!
