They led the way with classic design and many pieces are now sought after, particularly 1970s retro designs like the Parker Knoll Statesman chair. These make a great feature in any room and we often upholster them in bright colours associated with this era.

Upholstery and replacement covers for your Parker Knoll furniture

On a regular basis we expertly upholster many items of Parker Knoll upholstery from providing a new top cloth only to a complete overhaul of the furniture. Each piece is carefully pattern matched to your old covers like for like by our highly skilled sewing machinists, new covers are then marked using chalk and cut by hand. If you don’t have old covers that’s fine too, as we can pattern up new covers.

We will then lovingly sew together your new covers, attaching zipping and piping as required. Once complete we carefully fit your new covers back onto your existing foams or onto any new foams and fillings you have selected. The end result is absolutely stunning with your Parker Knoll furniture fully refurbished ready for years more use.

Replacement cushion inners and fillings for your Parker Knoll furniture

From replacing cushions inners for loose cushions, to adding padding to the frame, we can help restore your Parker Knoll furniture to the comfort it once was. We have also provided separate spare base cushions or entirely new base cushions to raise the seated height of the chair. With a range of foam grades available, from super soft to very firm, we would love to meet you at one of our showrooms where you can try out the foam grades.

Replacement Tension Springs for your Parker Knoll

If the tension springs on your Parker Knoll have collapsed or broken, we can professionally replace them with brand new springs. It is most common for the springs to then have a ‘hammock’ on top, which allows for the weight to be equally spread when sat on.

If you only require the replacement tension springs and would like to fit them yourselves, we can supply the springs or plates only and can dispatch to you wherever you are in the UK. You are also very welcome to contact us for advice and our friendly team would be more than happy to help.

Professional replacement of swivel bases for your Parker Knoll furniture

If you have a Parker Knoll Statesman chair, sofa or similar design and your swivel base has broken we can help. Please don’t throw away these retro icons!

We are experienced at successfully replacing the swivel part with a brand new one in either wood or metal. These are generally available from stock and come in many designs, which we would be happy to discuss with you.

Professional replacement of swivel bases for your Parker Knoll furniture

The construction of a typical Statesman Parker Knoll chair or sofa is fibreglass. If yours has broken in any way we can professionally repair this. We would strip your chair back to the frame and make a true assessment of the damage in order to see if we can provide a long term repair, not a bodge job. 

If acceptable for repair any damage will be replaced using new fibreglass, ensuring a sound solution ready for upholstery. 

Whatever your needs or concerns with your Parker Knoll chair, we would love to hear from you and await your call or email – or just pop in!
