Why cover your old furniture?

Hi, I am Kevin. When I was 12 years old my parents ran a furniture shop, and after school I would go straight there to help strip out furniture and help generally in the shop. I was taught how to upholster to a professional level at a young age, and by the age of 14, I was able to cover dining room seats. From the age of 16, I felt that my career in life was heading strongly towards upholstery and repairs and now, 31 years later, my love for the profession has never faded and is as strong now as ever.

If you have a sofa or armchair that you know is comfortable, and fits well in your living room, it is much easier to have it re-covered than purchasing a new item. You can have a sofa that retains its familiar feel and proportions, while looking as impressive as a new one.


As you can see in the fabrics page we have a lot of choice of cloths with different colours and textures that would match the carpets, curtains and other furnishings in your home.
