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.

“Re-upholstering a Victorian chair”

I am delight­ed with the qual­i­ty of the work­man­ship. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion was very good (with Gary ini­tial­ly and then Lau­rence) and the work was car­ried out prompt­ly. This is not the first time that I have used AsNew and I have no hes­i­ta­tion in rec­om­mend­ing them.

“Re-upholstering dining chairs”

Excel­lent ser­vice from Asnew! From the very first enquiry (which was so cour­te­ous­ly han­dled), I was con­fi­dent that Asnew would do a great job, and they did. Real­ly hap­py with the work, and delight­ed with the cus­tomer ser­vice from start to fin­ish; I would cer­tain­ly rec­om­mend them!

“Reupholstering 3 piece suite”

Fan­tas­tic ser­vice from start to fin­ish. The suite looks absolute­ly fab­u­lous. It looks like a new one. Every­one was so friend­ly and they even loaned us a sofa while ours was being done. Would thor­ough­ly recommend

“Reupholster French Bergere 3 piece suite”

You real­ly couldn’t ask for any­one to do a bet­ter job than Asnew. Every­one is so help­ful, lis­ten atten­tive­ly to what you want keep you informed of what is hap­pen­ing. These are peo­ple who clear­ly love what they do and want to share it with you. Could not rec­om­mend them more highly

“The task was to restore and recover a Gainsborough chair”

We knew of Asnew because of their ster­ling rep­u­ta­tion of care­ful­ly and sen­si­tive­ly restor­ing antique fur­ni­ture for a num­ber of Oxford col­leges. Our spec­i­men had seen bet­ter days but noth­ing loath, Asnew took it on and when it was returned we were absolute­ly thrilled. Not only were they care­ful his­tor­i­cal­ly but the crafts­man­ship was spot on in every regard. We would rec­om­mend Asnew with­out reser­va­tion (and we do know what we are talk­ing about) and you could not find more accom­mo­dat­ing pro­fes­sion­als who get in ear­ly and stay late. Huz­zah for Asnew!
