We recently created this bespoke armchair for one of our Bristol upholstery customers.
Jesse visited our Clifton showroom and instantly fell in love with an already upholstered wing back armchair there but wanted to change the design slightly so the chair was a little bit bigger and just right for her.
We worked alongside Jesse discussing the measurements and final design details of the chair to ensure it was made just how she wanted it.
On this chair, we made the arm to arm measurement wider and the back of the seat higher so when the chair was sat in, you are able to snuggle up in it.
Next we looked at upholstery fabrics, Jesse already had their heart set on a bright fabric that stood out. She decided on a Warwick fabric, using Liaison colour Lipstick which has a stain resistant finish.
We then looked at the different style legs for the chair where we showed her examples of the recent legs we have used and explained the different finishes you can have on them. Jesse wanted something a little different so decided on a swirl type leg polished in Mahogany for the front and original legs for the back of the chair.
We also showed her the different types of studding for the chair and she decided on a gold studding around the tops of the legs which compliments the fabric brilliantly.
As this was a bespoke wing back armchair, before we made the new foam base cushion we asked Jesse to come in to our Bristol showroom to choose which grade of foam she wanted. This enabled us to add the foam into the frame of the chair so she could feel how the finished chair would be. The final choice was medium feel foam with a dacron and stockinette wrap to add that extra plumpness and comfort.
Having a bespoke piece of furniture is brilliant if you are unable to find that perfect piece elsewhere.

The Battleaxes pub in Wraxall was undergoing a refurbishment and requested a mixture of brand new bespoke furniture and existing pieces to be upholstered.
As we’re sure you can see, the feel of the pub is very cosy and classic, incorporating pheasants and leaf patterns into the fabrics chosen. We created a 4m long sofa, round arm cocktail chairs, a buttoned back sofa, pouffe sets, and a range of scatter cushions. We also upholstered pinch back club chairs, a three piece button back suite and more, ready for their re-opening. All were upholstered in either Linwood Fabrics or Crest JMT leather.

Here are some photographs of the bespoke chairs and footstool in the room and while still at our workshop. What do you think?
This was a bespoke sofa project we relished being involved with from the moment it was dreamt up. Our client wanted to create a ‘Cosy’ look in their bar and expressed interest in making a large sofa to make the most of the space and make it feel a bit more like home than bench seating.
From drawings, sketches, and photos, we worked out a way to fulfil their criteria, by creating an 8.5m long bespoke sofa upholstered in a hard-wearing velvet.
A beautifully soft foam has been used in the base and backs for that added comfort. For extra luxury, we used turned legs with brass castors, and a gorgeous braid. With art deco style arms, this is a piece to remember.
We assembled the sofa in our showroom and had to extend it into the workshop it was so large! It almost disappears into the distance.
Now it sits in its new home at Cosy Club in Liverpool, and we think it fits in just perfectly.
Our customer was moving house and wanted two new sofas. We worked with them to create a bespoke design for their sofas.

Now the sofas are with them in their new home and they are very happy!
