Image of a chair reupholstered by Caroline Rance

This picture is interesting because it shows how two identical chairs can be re-upholstered in different ways to give two very different looks.

I recovered the chair on the right with deep buttoning to give it a very traditional look, whereas a fellow student recovered the chair on the left in a very contemporary fabric with floating buttons. The end result demonstrates how a period style chair can either be brought up to date or sympathetically restored to it's former self.

I offer everything from simple re-covering in a new top fabric to a complete re-upholstering service which includes replacing webbing, springs and stuffing if necessary.

I use traditional methods of upholstery to re-upholster anything from antiques and vintage furniture to reproductions and more contemporary pieces.

I am happy to re-upholster anything from footstools, ottomans and headboards, to dining chairs, occasional chairs and armchairs.

I offer free quotations and a free measuring up service.
