A lot is included in reupholstery – it’s more than replacing the existing fabric.
I strip down your furniture (removing the old fabric, tacks and staples) and make any repairs. I can also change the seating configuration if needed. I restuff or replace the cushion fillings and then recover your item in new fabric and add finishing touches (pipings and trims). For this reason, reupholstery won’t be cheaper than buying new, but you get far greater value: a bespoke piece of furniture reupholstered with high-quality materials. Learn about the re-upholstery process here.
I accept antique, vintage and modern furniture upholstery projects. I also do traditional upholstery (using horsehair, springs and hessian) as well as modern upholstery, using synthetic materials like foam and modern techniques.
My ethos is sustainable furniture, so I prefer to work with an existing item to give it a new life. However, if you have a very specific requirement for a bespoke headboard, ottoman or footstool that can’t be met this way, I will be happy to bring your ideas to life. Get in touch using the contact form.
Absolutely, you don’t need to put up with a lumpy or saggy sofa seat or back cushions. I can replace the seat and back cushions with a more supportive and longer-lasting filling, extending the life of your existing sofa.
Yes, I keep a small stock of pre-loved chairs that you can pick from to create your own bespoke chair and an heirloom of the future. Get in touch to explore this as an option. Alternatively, take a look at Very Vintique for one-of-a-kind pieces awaiting a home.
After our design consultation, I’ll send you a large gold envelope full of samples straight to your door. It’s so important to pick fabrics and colours in the room where the chair, sofa etc., lives. Samples are free, and there are no limits. I can also send a cutting or larger fabric sample if required.
If you are struggling to choose “the one” from my many samples, don’t worry. I’m happy to arrange a second video call to talk things through, and if needed, I will resample at no charge if the first pack of samples has helped narrow down your style choice.
Once you have confirmed your fabric choice, I will issue your invoice for the fabric cost, reupholstery fee, and delivery charges (if required). At this point, you pay your deposit (100% cost of the fabric and 50% of the re-upholstery cost).
The balance is paid on completion and prior to delivery or collection. I will send you a picture so you can see your “new” item before you pay.
