Wingback armchair in steel velvet

An excellent example of a period piece restored to a modern finish. Traditional wingback armchair re-upholstered in a steel/silver contemporary patterned velvet by Clarke & Clarke. We also made a bespoke oversize headboard in matching fabric for the client.


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.



Armchair in check wool

The lambswool check fabric of this re-upholstered armchair is wonderfully warm and soft to the touch. This chair has an unusual feature, in that the front border runs the entire width of the chair, with only the facing piping running down over it. We also replaced the foam cushion with a feather cushion for a deeper seating position and enhanced comfort. The pattern of the check flows naturally from panel to panel.
