Quality is paramount. I prefer to use natural fibres and UK based manufacturers; wools woven in Scotland by The Isle Mill, and Bute Fabrics – velvets, linens and weaves by Linwood, Blendworth and the Design Archives and silks and damasks by Gainsborough. Contemporary or traditional, vibrant colour or neutrals, I have a fabric for you. For more inspiration have a look in the gallery.

It won’t cost the earth

How much will it cost to restore your chair? Value what you have; choosing to reupholster over buying an often poorly made cheap mass market chair has benefits –
