Turning your dream furniture to reality is what we do
We all like nothing more than to relax and feel the hug of comfort around us.
You may even be sitting on your favourite sofa or chair right now, sipping a coffee (or something stronger!). But, have you ever thought about what it is you’re actually sitting on?
Would you be surprised to learn that beneath you is an amazing and complicated layering of various stuffings, horsehair, and springs? All contributing to the comfort you’re feeling right now. (Or not!)
If it’s feeling less than amazing and looking a little shabby, it may be time to pass your furniture to a team who can lovingly restore it to its former glory. But remember, it needs to be a team that knows their craft!
Take the spring, for example
It’s relatively tiny and seemingly insignificant – but could be the most important element of the structure. So understanding spring placement and the technique of tying it into place is a crucial factor in the comfort you’ll feel.
If you think of a chair or sofa as a skeleton, the springs are the muscles, flexing and supporting your every move. Each spring is hand-tied and held in place with anything from 12 to 16 knots. And the knot-tying technique in itself is considerably time-consuming, yet many are unaware it’s even necessary.
When it’s restored and designed with the utmost care and detail, using only traditional coil springs and horsehair; your furniture can become a family heirloom giving you comfort and beautiful design for years to come!
Traditional upholstery techniques will last for years to come
So, if you entrust your project to us; next time you snuggle into your furniture for that big hug, you can do so knowing it’s benefitted from the skills and techniques of a traditional upholsterer who has recognised and fulfilled the potential of your furniture.
