The majority of our customers for our Re-Upholstery service are local enough to visit our Showroom, and for us to collect and deliver their furniture in our own transport. However if you live elsewhere in the U.K. and have the ability to transport your furniture to us… we can happily help you!

Our 'Transparent' way of doing things

Proudly made-to-measure in BristolWe believe in actively encouraging our potential customers to come and see what we do and how we do it. That's why we have invested in creating a 3,000 sq. ft. permanent workshop Showroom, along with our new Customer' Viewing Gallery' where you can safely watch our craftsmen (and craftsladies!) at work.

Not a cheap job, a Professional job

In all the many years we have been carrying out Re-Upholstery, we have never strived to be the cheapest and to cut corners.

Instead we promise you that if, having come and visited our showroom and seen what we do, you decide to favour us with your custom, you will receive a first rate job, carried out in a professional manner and using high quality materials.

However, if you would like us to make you new bespoke outdoor cushions in your choice of filling and cover them with professionally made-to-measure covers, in a choice of Water Repellent fabrics, then we would be delighted to show you what we can offer.

How our Re-Upholstery Service works

1 Firstly you would come and see us at our Showroom. Over a cup of tea or coffee we'll listen carefully to what work you are considering having done.

In a relaxed, well lit, pleasant environment we will show you all the various options open to you as regards fabrics and if required, cushion fillings. We have over 4,000 fabrics to choose from and numerous cushion types to try out.

Choose from our display of over 4,000 fabricsWe'll be glad to help with any re-upholstery queries

You will be able to ask as many questions as you wish and our friendly, helpful, non –commission staff will be pleased to advise you on as much or as little as you would like to discuss.

2 Once you have made your choices we will then give you a written Quotation, not an estimate. This is a crucial difference! In other words the price we Quote you is fixed, and we will not ever charge you anything extra, regardless of what we might find when we strip down your furniture!

If you are happy to accept our Quotation then we will agree a convenient date to carry out the work….which we will stick to!

3 Our Craftsmen (and Craftsladies!) will carefully remove all the original fabric and strip down your furniture to its component parts. At this point the frame will be carefully examined and any weak points or looseness will be skilfully rectified, thus ensuring the frame will give many more years of satisfactory use.

All springs and webbings will be checked and replaced where necessary. We would always replace anything that might give trouble in the future, rather than leave it and hope for the best!

All padding and scrim will be examined and replaced as needed.

Your furniture will then be expertly 'built back up again', adding new padding and linings where we need to, as we go.

Please note that all the above work and comoponents are included in our quotation. We will never increase the price you have agreed to.

The final upholstering of your furniture in your chosen fabric is where attention to detail is crucial and as a result we will give this the time it really deserves.

4 When complete we will carefully protect your furniture until the time we most look forward to; when we reveal to you your newly transformed piece of furniture.

The positive reactions we receive, often along the lines of "I can't believe it's still my original furniture underneath", or "It's like a new piece of furniture", or sometimes simply "WOW!" make all our work worthwhile.
