We believe that beautiful furniture deserves to be enjoyed

After speaking to thousands of people over the last 30 years about their worries and concerns regarding their furniture. When you distil all of those conversations down, we believe that there is one central theme; the desire to enjoy furniture both aesthetically and from a comfortability standpoint without fear of breaking it.

That’s where we come in…it’s our job to repair, re-pad, re-cover and french polish precious furniture so that it can be cherished for years to come.

What Makes 1st Class Upholstery Different?

Often, furniture restoration companies will blindly quote you to repair your prized pieces of furniture and try and charge you through the nose! We don’t think it’s fair; just because a piece is priceless due to its sentimental value doesn’t mean that you should have to fork out hand over fist.

1st Class Upholstery takes a different approach to your prized possessions. We take time to get to know your restoration goals and provide you with a fair and affordable price that allows our specialists to take pride in their work, without leaving you feeling cheated or hard done by.

We know how it feels to look at a piece of furniture that you have loved and cared for and accept that it has become worn and tired looking. It’s saddening – almost like losing an old friend.


The good news is that furniture can be revitalised back to its original state, giving you that feeling of first impressions all over again. OR, you could decide to spruce your furniture up a little – trying something a bit fresher whilst retaining the charm and beauty of an antique.

It’s our job at 1st Class Upholstery to help you achieve your dream home with perfect furniture. Founded over 30 years ago by Lynda Henderson, 1st Class Upholstery has helped thousands of people in Glasgow and Edinburgh to enjoy their homes again.
