About us

Meet our wonderful team!

Who we are

We are a small, family-run business, who specialise in re-covering and making all types of upholstered furniture, from antique chesterfields to modern corner groups. We take pleasure in restoring furniture to its former glory. Steve is traditionally trained in all aspects of upholstery and there isn’t much, if anything, he hasn’t seen in his 45+ years of working. His daughter’s Kirsty and Megan have been trained by him; Megan is trained in upholstery and is continuing to learn the trade; Kirsty is a fully-qualified upholstery seamstress and also manages our social media. Steve’s wife, Pam, although not skilled in upholstery, strips furniture, cuts covers and does basic upholstery tasks; she also undertakes the admin jobs within the business and, will probably be the person you speak to on the phone, or talk to in our showroom. Ann is a fully-qualified upholsterer and, although not related, is like one of the family and has worked for Steve for many years, making headboards and undertaking additional upholstery jobs.
