If you have a favourite piece of furniture that is getting tired and worn, I can breathe new life into it. It’s a greener option than buying something new, and has the added advantage of giving you a chair or sofa that’s exactly what you want. I can either recover or completely re-upholster and can also work on show wood to bring it back to its former glory.
Just email or call me for an informal no-obligation chat about your requirements. If necessary, I can arrange to come to your house, measure up and do a brief inspection of the piece. I will send you a quote and let you know how much top fabric is needed.
Once the quote has been accepted we can schedule a suitable time for the work to take place and arrange for the piece to be collected or dropped off at my workshop.
I can offer advice with regard to your choice of fabric. After chatting through your thoughts and ideas I can do a search and present you with a selection of swatches to choose from. We aim to make the whole process as pain-free as possible.
Hand Painted Furniture
I also offer a painting service. Using quality water based emulsion paints and specialised wax finishes it’s possible to transform a tired old piece of furniture into a stunning time worn antique collectable that looks as if it belongs to a French chateau.
Antique & Vintage Furniture for Sale
With one foot in the past but still having an eye for the latest designs and trends, when I have a spare couple of hours I lovingly restore and reinvent old pieces of furniture.
Picked up at auction houses and antique fairs each vintage or antique frame is chosen for its individuality and style. Many of the frames are around for months before an idea takes hold. I always use beautiful fabrics and sometimes paint finishes. Each frame is carefully restored using traditional methods to create totally unique and perhaps a little bit quirky pieces.
Decorative Home Accessories
I frequently use antique and vintage fabrics to create beautiful handmade cushions, footstools, lampshades and other decorative home accessories. I am also happy to make any of the above in your own choice of fabric to your required size.
