Investing in quality

How much does it cost to reupholster your furniture?

Reupholstery is an investment.
But why invest if you can get a new item for less?

Well, because the two are very different.

Think of it like commissioning a tailor-made outfit rather than buying off-the-peg. Going bespoke gives you so much more:

More possibilities 

The choice and range of fabrics are limitless. Fabrics you wouldn’t see or have as an option in a store. Together we choose your fabrics and fillings to make your item bespoke.

More collaboration 

I’ll help you choose your fabrics, fillings and trims. Then I’ll personally guide you through every step of the restoration.

More longevity 

Your furniture is expertly restored, tightening joints, replacing springs & fillings. Using high quality materials that last. 

More eco-conscious 

I’ll restore and revive your furniture, using the most eco-conscious materials and practices. I’ll also save it from landfill.

Quality shines through

We had a chair and a footstool recently re-covered. The fabric recommendation was perfect and we worked together to create the richness of colour by using the velvet pile direction to its best effect. The whole process was efficient and painless and we are very happy with our ‘pop of colour’ orange velvet items.

Sharon took an expensive chair that I love for its comfort (I have back pain) but that unfortunately had become an eyesore and turned it into something quite beautiful. She took as much care talking over what mattered to us about the job as she did in actually doing the work – and I think it shows: we couldn’t be happier. My wife wanted the chair moved to my study in its previous incarnation but is now happy to show it off! The process was nothing but a pleasure from start to finish.

This is the second much loved piece of furniture that has been beautifully upholstered by Sharon at Vintique. It was my antique two-seater chesterfield sofa. Not only did she keep me up to date with her progress (even repairing a broken frame), she also took time over choice of fabric, delivery dates and lifestyle. So, she literally understood the character of my furniture, its history and its future expectations. Many, many thanks, Sharon.

Is Vintique right for you?

Reupholstery is for you, if any of these resonate:

  • You’ve inherited an heirloom or have an antique that you’d like lovingly restored.
  • You love your existing sofa and want to make it like new again.
  • You want to save your old sofa from landfill and give it a new look that reflects your style and personality.
  • You’d like to refresh and repair your shop-bought sofa. 
  • You’ve had a bad experience on the high street and want an alternative to buying new.
  • You already own an item (or you’ve found a diamond in the rough) and want it reimagined as a statement piece for your home.

It isn’t for you if :

  • You’re looking for something that costs less than buying an item new.
  • You change your furniture every few years for new.
  • You need your project completed in under 6 weeks.

My prices start from £650 for armchairs and £1,400 for sofas.

Depending on size, condition and construction.
Excluding fabric and VAT.

If we sound like a good fit, please get in touch for an estimate.
