What we can do for you?
If a sofa or chair is in good shape on the inside, and all that it needs is a fresh new fabric on the outside, that's 'recovering'. When a piece needs work on the inside, either partially or totally (new webbing, re-tied springs, new fillings, re-cushioning) that's 'reupholstering'.
Both of these jobs require the skills of professional upholsterers, and that's where we come in - ring us now on 020 7622 9347. We are London-based specialists in this field and we have been in the upholstery trade for over 30 years.
The upholsterer works from the frame, upwards, much the way the furniture maker does. So, if your old piece has a good frame, there's some significant initial saving to be had. Using modern materials with traditional skills can provide you with results that are even better than the original. In the hands of a good professional, you can get a full measure of value for your money, and quality that's hard to match.
Recovering, reupholstery and restoration are amongst the few professions in the domain of the hand-skills that are alive and well in the modern age.
So, if you have a lumpy old sofa, or a frayed chair that's beginning to shed its stuffing, take another look before dismissing it as a "has been". It could be the beginning of a beautiful new piece. This recycling of quality furniture will bring much pleasure in seeing a fashionable new piece bounce back out of the old one.
If your old sofa (or chair) frame has stood up for ten years or more, it's probably good or it wouldn't have lasted that long. Remember, good frames don't wear out! Did you know that in recent years, a good wooden frame has jumped by 100% or more in price?
