Developed over centuries, traditional upholstery involves a range of labour intensive techniques rooted in different periods. Therefore traditional upholstery requires the relevant skillset by the craftsman, the appropriate tools as well as the suitable raw materials underneath the top fabric. For instance, a chesterfield sofa is a prime example of traditional upholstery that utilises elements such as springs, natural fibre (horsehair, wool, hessian, vegetable and cotton felt) and involves craftsmanship, precision and a good eye for a perfect and enduring finish. Before any reupholstery work is carried out we note how your furniture was originally upholstered with special regard to the materials and techniques which we then re-apply if the client wishes us to. We are in a unique position whereby before any upholstery work commences, we can examine its overall condition and repair and restore it on site.
