Working with antiques involves alot of hard work, skill and care. Traditional upholstery techniques started in the 18th century using hand-tied springs, animal hair, scrim and hand-stitching. This craftsmanship creates furniture that will last decades. Perfect for a family heirloom or a lucky 'find' that needs to be brought back to life.

If you would like a chair or sofa to be sourced or have an existing item that needs to be re-uphostered or re-covered, please contact me below with any enquiries.




I love bringing furniture back to life. They always have a story to tell and changing

their image with new upholstery and fabric gives me so much satisfaction. Each piece

is unique and can be cherished for many

more years.
