    Edwardian Armchair

    This old arm chair was originally belonged to a much loved granny and had huge sentimental value. Elaine wanted to make it comortable again and update it with some contemporary velvet.

    It was rebuilt with traditional upholstery materials and methods and is now used as the perfect ‘curl up with a book’ chair.

      1950's Howard Keith

      Lucy & Paul inherited this 50's Howard Keith chair from Paul's parents and it has become a firm favourite.

      They decided it was time to renew the upholstery and update the fabric. They chose a lovely, hard wearing, grey wool felt with contrasting buttons.

        Victorian 2 seater sofa

        Alison & Steve bought their Victorian sofa over 30 years ago in London for £50 and when it became worn out after years of use, they decided to invest in this beauty rather than replace it. 

        It was rebuilt with traditional upholstery and covered in a sustainable wool & flax fabric.

          Old chairs...

          In our world of mass production and the ‘disposable’ – its easy to forget that there are still things in our homes that can be mended, and restored to provide us with countless years of use. 

          Old chairs are wonderfully different – each with their own characteristics and quirks. Once re-upholstered, they become beautiful bespoke pieces of furniture.
