With thirty years in the upholstery business, I have been asked to upholster most things from tractor seats to deep buttoned Chesterfields and I find the challenge of completing every job to a high standard stimulating. I am an certificated member of the Guild of Traditional Upholsterers. The pictures on this page are typical examples of the kind of work I undertake. With many local regular customers I have built up a solid reputation for good work.

Traditional upholstery work requires skill and patience. The various techniques which have been handed down over the years can not be changed and need to be learned in a methodical manner. Webbing, springing, stuffing, stitching, buttoning etc are essential techniques for the correct upholstering of an old chair or sofa. I have a small team of highly skilled upholsteres who have specific training in traditional work.
