Our restoration team are well-known for pulling off miracles. If you have a piece of furniture you would like to have saved, then this is how to go about it.
Firstly, not all furniture can be saved or is worth saving, and many modern chairs and sofas are built using cheap materials. These will most likely fall apart if you try to renovate them. These products are part of the throwaway society we live in, so it is best here to just throw them away and start again.
Re-up services explained
Recover, Re-upholstery or Renovation
If you have a quality item with a proper frame, maybe an antique or even just something you are attached to, then let us take a look at it for you. You can send us details and photos of your furniture using the form below and we will take a look and get back to you with an estimate.
A/ Recover includes the following:
Strip of the top cover from the frame leaving the build intact. We will then recover the body like for like with all details like piping included. If there are seat and back cushions these will be recovered.
B/ Re-upholstery includes the following:
Strip of the top cover from the frame. Repairs to any broken springs, tightening of any loose frame joints, and replacement of any compressed foams or padding. Cushion interiors will be opened and extra feathers, foam or fibre will be added to give them a new life.
C/ Re-upholstery (No Fire label) includes the following:
Strip of the top cover from the frame. Repairs to any broken springs, tightening of any loose frame joints, and replacement of all foams and padding. Cushion interiors will be opened and extra feathers, foam or fibre will be added to give them a new life.
D/ Renovation includes the following:
This would normally only be applicable for absolute classic pieces or those well-loved pieces that you can bear to lose. This is a total strip back to the frame, all cover, stuffing and suspension is removed. We then repair the frame, repolish as needed and rebuild as new. We will give options for the build in the quote.
Please note all quotes for Re-up are to be considered estimates until we have actually sighted the items. Furthermore, if the item does not have a fire label we will have to requote to a minimum C level.
Trade customers will normally supply their own fabrics (COM customers own material). Private customers can do the same or visit any of the fabric houses listed. Tell us your choice and we will order in for you. All fabrics must meet fire regulations which can be achieved by the fabric being compliant or back coating. In some cases an inter liner can be used.
