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.



Art Deco sofa in turquoise velvet

At KRS we are priveleged to work on some wonderful furniture, but there are times when a piece comes in which really stands out. This sofa is one of those statement pieces. It has definite nods to the Art Deco style, and we estimate it to be an early example from that period. We’ve re-upholstered it in a vibrant turquoise velvet. It’s not hard to imagine the bright young things of the 1920’s taking a seat, sipping a mint julep and enjoying the good times while they lasted!
