Bespoke Upholstery Service

A tailor made service to suit my customers as individuals, I offer a Bespoke Upholstery Service which reflects my customers style and personality.  I keep flexible appointment slots for you to bring your furniture item to the workshop for assessment. If are unable to transport your item to the workshop,  I can arrange a home visit within the local area. Dependent on distance from the workshop, a travel cost may be requested.  If you live further afield, I can provide a general estimation through photographs and measurements via email correspondance. 

Common examples of the types of upholstery work I undertake are; Arm Chairs, Dining Chairs, Sofas, Ottomans, Window Seats, Footstools, Cushion covers
If your article is not specifically mentioned above, fear not! My expertise and experience is not all inclusive to this list. 

Why not take a look at my  Gallery to see examples of previous commissions.



Each chair is as individual as we are, and requires varying levels of work. It is therefore impossible to give a flat rate for the upholstery of each item. Following furniture assesment, I will establish a written proposal and Estimate. Alternately, I welcome enquiries from further afield with photos of your article and your specifications.


Recovery or Reupholstery? 

 The basic difference between the two is that Recovery replaces the top fabric and Reupholstery replaces the inner workings of the item along with the top fabric. Some articles will need a mixture of both, but I do pride myself on recycling and reusing any internal materials where possible- keeping  costs down and also helping the environment.



 Please be assured that preservation is extreemly important and I take the utmost care with all furniture that is entrusted to me, retaining its original features and restoring it to its former glory. All pieces are lovingly hand crafted with a keen eye for detail and completed to my very exacting standards.

Bespoke Cushion Covering Service

Whether your sofa covers are in need of a revamp, your window seat is in need of some TLC, or you’d like to update your look with your own unique scatter cushions, I can help. Offering a made to measure cushion covering service,  I will provide a home visit and quotation tailored to your needs.


Sofa Cushion Covers 

Using your  current sofa cushions (seat or back) as a design template I will reconstruct using your chosen fabric. A great way to update a suite without complete reupholstery! As standard practice cushion covers are piped and zipped, however if your specific cushion has an alternate design I can adjust designs accordingly.


Ercol Evergreen Seat Cushion Covers

 I now offer replacement cushion covers for the iconic Ercol Evergreen 2 Seater Sofa and Arm Chair Seat cushion covers. Simply get in touch, choose your fabric and your replacement covers will be posted out to you via a trusted courier. Its that simple!


Window seat Cushions 

If your current window seat cushion has seen better days, or you are looking to transform an area in your home into seating, I can construct a tailor made cushion to fill your requirements. Following a home consultation, I will construct your seat cushion cover from a precise template to provide the perfect fit.  


Scatter Cushion Covers

Scatter cushions can be made to a size and design of  your choice; square, circular, rectangle or bolster. You can choose from self piped edges or contrasting- whatever your vision I can accommodate! I am happy to use any fabric remnants you have or assist in sourcing that perfect piece to compliment your current decor. All cushion covers are constructed with an inseam zip for easy  laundering.


Arm Caps 

I can also construct tailor made arm caps for Sofa and Arm Chairs, which will protect against frime and prolong the life of your upholstery. Choose piped, plain or lined.

Wood Treatments

Show wood and legs can be polished and waxed sympathetically to restore their original lustre. Where appropriate, show wood can be completely stripped back to the original wood, finished or dyed depending on preference. Damaged interior frames can be repaired, and castors replaced to your own design for functionality or aesthetic. Please note that some carpentry/wood finishing work is now outsourced to a trusted local firm.   

Sourcing Service

I also offer a sourcing service for customers who have that specific piece of furniture in mind to add to their collection.
Whether it be a Mid Century Parker Knoll, an Art Deco Club Chair or Victorian Nursing Chair, please email me an image of  the piece along with your specifications and I will do my utmost to help!

Please note there is a fee for this service. Price is dependent on each individual project.
