Edwardian armchair in velvet

Our client chose a beautiful turquoise embossed velvet for the re-upholstery of this Edwardian low-armed armchair. The chair originally featured rope piping around the back and arms – but due to the lack of availability of a matching colour, we instead hand sewed each self-piped panel individually. The superb final result is true to the original character of the piece.

Antique chaise in Moon paisley

Classic traditional chaise with decorative woodwork and plush upholstery. We traditionally restored the inside seat and polished the woodwork, before reupholstering in Moon ‘Mac’ paisley design in Heather. This lovely piece was finished with extensive brown studwork.

Howard and Sons armchair

Howard and Sons of London were the foremost upholstery makers of the nineteenth century, and their pieces are much sought after nowadays. Extremely comfortable and well made, they can be covered in Howard and Sons’ own fabric design, just like the example shown here.

Coach & Horses Inn, Bolton by Bowland

We were recently commissioned to provide soft furnishings for the re-opened Coach & Horses Inn in Bolton by Bowland, near Clitheroe. These included large headboards for the bedrooms, both deep-buttoned and plain; deep-buttoned leather banquettes for the dining area; dining chairs; scatter cushions and bolster cushions in various designs and sizes, and decorative curtains. Many of these we have made from scratch, from the timber upwards. We have also renovated existing pieces of furniture, such as the settles, making them beautiful and inviting once more.

The materials used are of very high quality, and the fabrics chosen carefully to make an impact, whilst remaining sympatehtic to the environment.

It’s no exaggeration to say that the various pieces look absolutely stunning in-situ, as does the rest of this beautifully refurbished Grade 2 listed inn.
