BETWEEN CONTEMPORARY & TRADITION
Why reupholster your furniture?
There are many reasons why one would reupholster their furniture. Often, the pieces that are brought to me are family heirlooms, genuine antiques or simply a beloved armchair too hard to part with. For some clients, they want to reimagine and redesign their furniture with autonomy, others will want to restore it to a former glory. It’s an entirely personal decision that I’m fortunate enough to help realise.
Discover the world of upholstery through two distinctive approaches: Modern Upholstery and Traditional Method. In Modern Upholstery, synthetics like foam, polyester, and strong adhesive are utilised, particularly suitable for contemporary furnishings. This method employs staples for quicker and more cost-effective layer fixing, maintaining a high level of comfort even though its durability may not match that of Traditional Upholstery. On the other hand, the Traditional Method revolves around natural fibers such as horsehair, wool, cotton calico, and hemp, meticulously layered to create enduring comfort. Seats are fashioned with webbing and springs, and precise stitching techniques result in firm and well-defined edges. The longevity of Traditional pieces, which can endure over 80 years with proper care, is evident in the abundance of pre-industrial furnishings still present today.
Choosing to reupholster your furniture involves a complete deconstruction and reconstruction process, granting you complete control over fabric quality, seat firmness, and the final aesthetic.
