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.


Orange check chair

A one-off, hand made (and home-made we are told) chair with removable seat cushion for storage. There was a lot of love in the workshop for the short, squat shape of this piece! As can be seen from the ‘before’ photo, it was in a poor state of repair and seemed to have suffered at the claws of a cat (a problem we come across very often!)

The client’s choice of orange/camel/grey plaid wool looks fantastic on the renovated chair. Naturally we took the utmost care that the check pattern runs seamlessly from panel to panel.

Union Flag carver chair

This occasional carver chair arrived in our workshop with a ripped cover, collapsed wadding and broken springs. We stripped it back to the frame and made all the replacements necessary to provide renewed support and comfort.

Our client provided a piece of ‘Union Flag’ design fabric, which fits the seat perfectly and definitely makes a strong impression! It’s finished with brown studwork, and we think it looks fantastic. It’s a versatile piece of furniture which will suit a variety of spaces.

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.
