Furniture Reupholstery

This process can involve a complete strip down and re-build if necessary, using modern and traditional materials, or a facelift recovering the original fabric with new.

If a piece of furniture has a sound frame and is appreciated for its comfort and style, there is no need to replace it, instead have the item reupholstered. It can be significantly cheaper than replacing with new, especially for quality brands of furniture such as G-Plan, Ercol, Minty, and Parker Knoll, you already know that it fits your home and is comfortable.

It is more environmentally friendly than buying new and is far less effort as we come to you! Your furniture will not go to waste and end up in landfill. We offer a collection and delivery service so you will not have to lift a finger. Our network of leading fabric suppliers allows us to offer an extensive range of high quality and durable fabrics all tailor made to your requirements.

How the service works

  1. Decide on the spe­cif­ic job requirements.
  2. Choose a fab­ric. (You are wel­come to vis­it our show­room and pick a fab­ric, or alter­na­tive­ly we can arrange for sam­ples to be sent to you direct).
  3. Get a quote. This will be bro­ken down into, labour costs, replace­ment mate­ri­als, fab­ric costs + and any extras.
  4. Pay 50% deposit. Once this is received, we can book you in and arrange for your fur­ni­ture to be col­lect­ed at a mutu­al con­ve­nient time and date.
  5. On com­ple­tion we will call to arrange delivery.

The process

Strip down

Step 1 Strip down

We will carefully strip down your furniture and remove all original fabric.
Frame inspection and repair

Step 2 Frame inspection and repair

The frame will be inspected and the necessary repairs will be carried out; joints will be tightened, dowelled, glued or screwed depending on what is required.
Springs and webbing

Step 3 Springs and webbing

Once we are happy with the frame, work will begin on the springs and webbing. Any springs and webbing that need replacing will be replaced.

Step 4 Rebuild

We will then begin to build the layers back up. Padding and stuffing is checked and replaced where required.
Cutting and sewing

Step 5 Cutting and sewing

Finally, with a frame and padding restored your chosen fabric is measured and cut and sewn to shape.

Step 6 Upholstery

The fabric outer shell is sewn together and fixed to the frame using either traditional or modern methods of upholstery depending on your preference.

Step 7 Cushions

Finally your chosen cushion interiors or original cushions are fitted into the cushion covers.

Absolute­ly excel­lent — picked up sofa on date agreed, returned with­in ten days and it real­ly does look like a new piece of fur­ni­ture. Polite, effi­cient ser­vice and a real­ly pro­fes­sion­al prod­uct. Delighted.

“Old ottoman stripped back, reupholstered and recovered”

Excel­lent work for the sec­ond time — fur­ni­ture is trans­formed. Great vari­ety of fab­ric to choose from. Nice to work with. Timeliness/​reli­a­bil­i­ty issue was due to lock­down com­pli­ca­tions — oth­er than that, all com­mu­ni­ca­tion and reli­a­bil­i­ty was good. Have already sent anoth­er piece to be re-done and rec­om­mend­ed them to a fam­i­ly member.

“Recovered Chaise”

Absolute­ly fan­tas­tic, I would thor­ough­ly rec­om­mend this com­pa­ny. Love­ly work­force who give expert advice, kept me informed and did a fan­tastc job. I am very pleased with the work caried out and in a great timescale.

“Upholstered an antique chaiselongue”

I inher­it­ed the chaise­longue from my moth­er who unfor­tu­nate­ly made a few non authen­tic changes. Asnew called a few times to explain what was done to the item pre­vi­ous­ly and to check how I want­ed it restored. I want­ed it back to the orig­i­nal style and am real­ly pleased with the result. Great ser­vice all round from first enquiries to exe­cu­tion. I can high­ly rec­om­mend them!

“Chair re-upholstered”

Bril­liant end result. There was a long wait­ing list, but once the chair was col­lect­ed it only took a week. Very polite on the phone and in per­son. I found the assis­tance in pick­ing a new fab­ric very use­ful and also nice deliv­ery peo­ple. It’s expen­sive but the craft­man­ship is superb and the chair has sen­ti­men­tal val­ue to me so cer­tain­ly worth it.

“Two fifty year old Parker Knoll chairs refurbished and reupholstered”

I can­not com­mend the qual­i­ty of work too high­ly — what they have done is lit­tle short of a work of art for detailed pat­tern-match­ing, painstak­ing effort to erase years of scratch­es and dents to the wood­work and aston­ish­ing improve­ment of com­fort. I was also impressed by the clear com­mit­ment they showed to doing the best for the chairs as well as for me! From my first explorato­ry vis­it to the work­shop to final deliv­ery to my home, this was a good expe­ri­ence! I now have two beau­ti­ful chairs for less than the price of one.…

“Recovering a sofa”

I have used Asnew for many years for re uphol­ster­ing. The qual­i­ty of their work is excel­lent, and this lat­est ser­vice was no excep­tion. Apart from the work itself, they are a plea­sure to deal with, always prompt with col­lec­tion and return of fur­ni­ture, and friend­ly and help­ful on the telephone.

“Re-upholster a 1960s sofa”

Asnew have done a per­fect job on bring­ing this old sofa back for anoth­er gen­er­a­tion. From choos­ing the fab­ric and all com­mu­ni­ca­tions to col­lec­tion and deliv­ery they have been pro­fes­sion­al and pleas­ant to deal with. And now I have a fab­u­lous new’ sofa, that was well worth the cost. Thank you Asnew — per­haps see you again!
