Timothy Warr has the knowledge and experience in both traditional and modern upholstery. From basic top fabric recovering to a full 'stripped back to frame' process, resulting in a complete renovation of an individual piece we transform your damaged, worn or just out of date furniture into something to be admired, loved and enjoyed once again.
Many customers just love their seating and the life of your upholstered furniture depends on the type of filling that is used but more importantly it is the quality of the frame which is the deciding factor. If you have a well made piece with a good, quality hardwood frame then consider re-covering it with new upholstery as this may well last longer than a new chair or sofa.
At Timothy Warr we specialise in both traditional and modern upholstery which include the re-covering of Laura Ashley, G plan, Marks & Spencer, Duresta and Parker Knoll furniture to name but a few.
Traditional upholstery is a craft that dates back from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries - and uses natural organic materials such as horsehair or coir (coconut) fibre, hessian or linen, and tacks for fixing, and employs sophisticated stitching techniques to make firm stitched edges. It is labour intensive, but involves real skill and is a treat to do.
Modern upholstery is usually more appropriate for post-second world war furniture and uses synthetic foam as a stuffing, and staples for fixing, and is normally much quicker to do than traditional upholstery.
