The Upholstery Process Explained
Many people think upholstery is the process of repairing and restoring antique furniture, which is something we do, however, ‘upholstery’ is in fact, the name given to the materials used to stuff and cover seats, chairs, sofas and pretty much any piece of furniture that needs some attention.
The technique that we use to get your furniture back to it’s best is called ‘re-upholstery’.
Reason being, we spend time carefully re-applying the upholstery materials to your furniture so that it sits evenly, enhances comfort levels and looks great too!
Every upholstery job we complete goes through the process below:
Vital to the long-term health of furniture, we must make sure that each piece is structurally sound before we carry out any work. A stable structure prevents you from experiencing any discomfort and breaks in the future. How do we do this? It starts with a process called ‘stripping’ where we strip back all materials and fabric from your piece of furniture until we only its core components remain. At that level, we can make a diagnosis of the level of repairs required. Sometimes, no repairs are needed at all, and we can just replace the linen with something new to give a fresher design. However, we may need to repair various elements to ensure stability such as issues with the feet to prevent wobbles.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why upholster rather than buying a new sofa?
So, why upholster rather than buy new? If we had to sum it up in a word it would be memories. There is something about furniture that you just can’t forget. Maybe we’re just the nostalgic type, but the items you value help you define who you are and those memories that have been built up over years should not be forgotten.
When should you contact an upholstery specialist?
It’s important to consider that just because you have a piece that is looking old, doesn’t mean that it cannot become something equally beautiful or even better. The opportunities to change the style, pattern, and colour of your furniture is limitless. When you see the difference, you’ll think you’re looking at a new sofa, but at the same time hold the memories of your old one.
