Breathe New Life into a Beloved Suite
Here at Material Things, we’re ardent believers in the art of re-upholstery. If you’ve invested a significant amount of money into a chair, sofa or suite in the past, just because it has seen better days doesn’t necessarily mean it can’t be restored to its former glory – or even improved upon with a new design of fabric & modernising the style.
We believe that the benefits are many-fold: by re-upholstering your existing piece of furniture, you’re preserving the quality and craftsmanship that went into it at the time it was made, for a lower cost than it would be to replace it with a new item. But importantly, you may also be avoiding buying a lesser quality, mass-market item that perhaps didn’t have the level of care and attention put into it as your furniture did.
For us, it’s a natural solution: you avoid all of the hassle of trying to find that perfect new suite that’s right in size, shape, comfort and style – and you also have the option of an enviably wide range of fabrics – over 10,000, in fact – that will effectively give you a brand new piece or set of furniture! It’s also more cost-effective than you might think. To have your existing suite professionally stripped down to its original frame, and then carefully reupholstered by our master upholsterers costs as little as £1,999 for a sofa and two chairs. We replace almost everything; including all the cushion interiors and often the springs too, returning to you a suite which is as good as the day you bought it. We can re-upholster any suite, regardless of being modern or traditional and specialise in top furniture brands such as: Ercol, Cintique, G-Plan, Parker Knoll, Collins & Hayes, Celebrity, Wade, Peter Guild, Wesley Barrell; the list goes on.
Material Things is a completely independent, family firm with over 35 years’ of experience as upholstery specialists. We are proud to have the largest re-upholstery workshop in the south, and our master craftsmen have an amazing 200 years of combined experience. We have what we believe to be an unrivalled personal service, including offering two free loan chairs whilst your suite is being re-upholstered, should you wish.
