Reupholstery Transformations: From Drab to Fab!

This black chair had seen better days.  The fabric had become tatty and the seat cushion was beginning to sag and become uncomfortable to sit on. The shape of the chair was gorgeous though, and we knew it had the potential to be updated and live a whole new life.

Black Chair

What a transformation!  We gave this chair a brand new look with one of our favourite William Morris fabrics. The seat cushion has been replaced and the frame checked for necessary repairs.   The deep blue base colour of this fabric really complements the dark wood of the feet, and the floral design will now turn this chair into a focal point of any room.

Hidden Gems – Could You Be Sitting On A Real Treasure?

Before you throw away that tatty old chair in the corner of the sitting room, take a closer look. Some pieces of furniture aren’t quite what they seem and you may have been sitting on a hidden gem that just needed a little TLC, as these examples show.

Transformed from tatty and damaged to bright and cheerful, the addition of printed fabric to this tired sofa allowed it to retain its luxurious look and deliver uncompromised comfort.

Luxurious coach

Taken from a dull and uninspiring green to a deep and indulgent burgundy, this luxurious couch has certainly benefited from its makeover. The high-quality finish of the reupholstering works to the furniture’s merit and makes it a sensational piece.

Use your imagination

If you are looking for valuable furniture in your home, try and assess its structural merits and imagine what it would look like with new coverings.

A wonderful way of exposing the original attributes of your chair and bringing it back to glory is to give it a tasteful makeover. With some clever use of fabric, you can revive an antique piece of furniture so that all of its best features are enhanced.

Keep any exposed parts of wooden furniture well-polished – beeswax is best. Ensure that the new covers are well-treated and regularly cleaned and then you can simply enjoy sitting on a comfortable and attractive piece of furniture!
