This Sofa bed and wing chair have been completely transformed after being re-upholstered in this beautiful wool fabric from Abraham Moon. Working with stripes or checks is always a challenge to the upholsterer as they try to keep the pattern straight and lined up....not an easy task when the furniture itself is curved and rounded ! An enjoyable job made even more satisfying by the delight and response of the customer.
I cannot thank you enough for the fabulous job you have made of the sofa chairs and seat pads. The level of workmanship is outstanding.
Many many thanks'
Amongst other jobs this week has seen a couple of sets of dining chairs pass through the workshop. The first set are G-Plan and were completely re-upholstered with new foams and Pimlico Crush fabric from Ross Fabrics. The second set were originally covered in a faux leather which had began to peel and look a bit the worse for wear...now recovered in a good quality contract rated black vinyl.
Parker Knoll reclining sofa re-upholstered in Lewis check fabric. A technical and challenging job which involved plenty of head-scratching trying to ensure the pattern lined up as much as possible....despite all the curved shapes.
Wee, sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie, Not a moose in sight but plenty of other wildlife on this wee sofa. Delighted to get the opportunity to work with this fabric from Timorous Beasties. With a pattern repeat of over 180cm it was a challenge to get all the right bits in all the right places....i think we managed to get all the butterflies to feature somewhere ! The sofa itself was stripped back to the bare frame and built back up again using predominantly traditional materials and methods before being upholstered in this colourful and vibrant fabric. Plenty job satisfaction on this project.
This Wade suite was starting to look just a little bit dated after almost 30 years in its original fabric. Re-upholstered in luxurious Voyage Vellamo velvet brings it right up to date with a more modern appearance. A labour intensive job which required the outside panels and pelmet to be hand sewn....definitly worth the effort though.
