We recently upholstered a chesterfield two seat sofa and armchair for our upholstery customer based in St Albans, outside of London.
Ryan sent photographs of his furniture for a quotation, and was initially unsure I he wanted to upholster them in leather again or a velvet. We provided two quotations showing the difference for upholstering in each option, and he decided he preferred a velvet. He wanted a grey crushed or tumbled velvet, so we arranged for free samples to be sent directly to him so he could see which he preferred. We’d always recommend our nationwide customers have samples, as it is difficult to represent fabric colours and textures on a screen.
After some consideration, Ryan chose Linwood Fabrics Sigma Zinc, which is a tumbled, stain resistant velvet that catches the light beautifully. Once the fabric was confirmed, we arranged for our trusted courier company to collect his chesterfield sofa and armchair at a time and date convenient for Ryan.
We replaced the buttons with new ones and replaced the existing castors on the bottom with new Shepherd castors.
We think the end result looks brilliant! Take a look at our photos below.
