This re-upholstery project is a wonderful example of taking a sturdy, loyal piece of furniture and turning it into a bold statement chair. The large scale pomegranate design with its rich plum purples, really makes for a theatrical spectacle when upholstered on furniture.

The client has chosen to add a skirt to the base of the chair, giving it a soft feminine look, fitting for a bedroom space or cosy cottage living room. There really are no rules when designing your upholstery, it’s a chance to play around with fringes, ruffles and piping, we have it all on offer in our showroom and online library.

About the Design...

A stunning design featuring large printed pomegranates in plum purple and grey. Stylised stems run amongst the fruit creating depth in brown and ink blue. Inspired by the fragrant flowers of India, this neutral linen union fabric is perfect for sophisticated curtains, blinds and furniture upholstery.

Malati fabric is great for making a statement without forfeiting the budget and stands as one of William Yeoward’s most popular designs with our customers.

Buttoned Mustard Yellow Floral Chair

A faithful, well-loved occasion chair due a revamp and boy, have they been revamped. Covered in a glorious golden mustard linen with warm red flowerheads and leafy motifs, the chair has been brought back to life. A studded trim has been added, accentuating the beautiful curves of the antique design.

We were excited about this renovation, as this fabric is one of the team’s favourites, and the result has confirmed our high hopes. What a pretty item to introduce to a bedroom, or living space, to bring pattern and colour to a interior scheme. 

About the Design...

A red, pink, purple, and blue floral print decorates this ochre linen fabric. The painterly pattern is ideal for adding colour to any interior. Part of MINDTHEGAP’s Gypsy Soul collection, this design emulates the vivacity of the Woodstock festival era, where free spirits and nature were celebrated. Made of 100% linen with a high rub count, it works wonderfully for upholstery or curtains.

Inside the Workshop

If you’ve ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of a chair re-upholstery, here’s some insight into the stages of a chair refurbishment. When you bring your furniture to us, we can strip it back to the frame, tighten up any loose joints, restuff the padding, even polish or re-colour the woodwork, and of course re-cover with a fresh new fabric. There are plenty of designer fabrics to choose from on our online catalogue and Sussex showroom, with the help of our knowledgeable made to measure team, we can help you find what you’re looking with for and have your piece ready for its place back in your home. This chair here has been covered in Navaho velvet fabric, with the pattern flowing with the shape of the chair. The padding and backing have been replaced, giving it an all-over fresher finish.
