Offering a comprehensive upholstery service, from quotes to complete refurbishment of furniture.
With an emphasis on sustainability and reducing waste I am always looking for new and exciting materials to work with.
I am happy to talk through ideas, no matter how outlandish.
How does it all work?
Send me a photo of the piece of furniture, then I’ll give you a call and we can have an initial chat about what it is you’re after and set a time for me to come and look at the piece.
Examining the item will allow me to quote more accurately, it also gives me a chance to meet you and get a feel for the sort of look you’re after.
The more thought you have put into the sort of fabric you might like, the better. Some things to think about are, what do you use it for? What other pieces of furniture are in the same room?
This is also a great chance to tell me if there are any pressing deadlines, allowing me to build this into my quote.
Once you’ve received the quote, ask any questions that you may have. I am happy to advise on fabrics and trimmings.
The quote will include timescales, deposit required and any further consultations that may be required.
What does an upholsterer do?
Well there are a few answers to this question.
Do you have a piece of furniture that you love, but you've fallen out of love with the fabric? No problem, as long as the guts of the piece are sound, it can be recovered in a fabric that you love. This is a great way to update, modernise and generally have a bit of fun with furniture.
What if your chair or sofa has started to sag? As long as the frame is sound then this can be reupholstered. This means that the piece is stripped down to its bare bones. Once naked, the piece of furniture can start to be rebuilt from the beginning. Not only will this give you a really comfortable piece of furniture, it will also ensure it continues to be enjoyed for many more years.
Have you always wanted a bespoke headboard with deep buttoning? Not a problem, we can have a chat about the style and shape.
Upholsterers employ modern and traditional techniques. Simply, as an example, this is the difference between staples and tacks, foam and webbing. Both techniques have their place.
